1. Information Collection
Hullshop is the sole owner of the information collected throughout the Hullshop Network. The Hullshop Network collects information to understand what makes you different from its thousands of other unique users. While you are not required to register for any services on the Hullshop Network, some Products and Services may not function properly or may not be accessible unless you do.
Information collected online is usually defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable.
- Hullshop collects anonymous information, which refers to data that cannot be tied back to a specific individual, such as referral data (i.e., which site referred you to us) and browser and platform type (i.e., Netscape Browser or Windows Platform). Hullshop collects this user information for purposes of product improvement and targeted advertising.
- Personally identifiable information refers to data that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name and postal address, which may be collected in addition to the anonymous data described above.
2. Free Stuff Newsletter
Hullshop offers its users the ability to sign up for our Free Stuff Newsletter. We must collect the user’s email address in order to send out the weekly newsletter. Nothing else is collected from the user except his/her email address. He/she has the ability to unsubscribe from the newsletter via the link at the bottom of each newsletter or from the website that the user used to sign up at. In no way will the users’ email address be sold, or otherwise given out to any third party company. Your information remains confidential.
Information about products (e.g., pricing and configurations) is provided by third parties. We do not independently verify this information, represent or warrant its accuracy and will not be liable for any errors, omissions or delays in this information, or for any actions taken in reliance thereon.
The Hullshop online shopping page offers links to shopping offers, which are processed by third party companies. Be certain that the sites you do purchase from are secure.
5. Third Party Advertising
The ads appearing on the Hullshop Network are delivered to users by CJ, Websponsors, Linkshare and potentially other advertising/affiliate companies. These third party companies record statistics such as the number of times users view or click advertisements (no personally identifiable information is recorded). These statistics are used to serve ads to users on the Hullshop Network. For more information about CJ, cookies, and how to “opt-out”, please click here
6. Sharing of Information
Though Hullshop makes every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on the Hullshop Network.
7. Links to Other Sites
The Hullshop Network contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Hullshop Network.
Hullshop takes precaution to protect its users’ information. The Hullshop Network has security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data under our control. Hullshop uses physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect any personally identifiable data stored on its computers. Only authorized employees have access to the information you provide us.
