I. Who Does This Privacy Policy Apply To?

This Privacy Policy applies to websites, social media pages, and mobile applications owned or controlled by HHG, (collectively, the “HHG Sites”, or Websites”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that HHG does not own or control, or to people that HHG does not employ or manage. Third party websites that you connect to through the HHG Sites are not under HHG’s control and are subject to their own privacy policies. If you navigate to a third party site from an HHG Site, it is your responsibility to review the privacy policies of that site.

II. What Information Does HHG Collect?

In order to serve you better, HHG collects certain information including personal information that you provide to HHG when you visit the HHG Sites. The type of information that HHG collects depends on what you do when you visit.

We may use contact data collected from these promotional events to send you information about HHG and its partners.

You may also provide us information about others including but not limited to providing personal information (including first and last name, mailing address and email addresses) to send products, gift cards, coupons, promotional offers, or referrals. Before providing us information about your contacts or other third parties, you must obtain their permission to provide their personal information, such as name, phone number, mailing address, and email address, to HHG.

Certain website functionality requires you to enable “Location Services” on your mobile device for use with the HHG Sites or otherwise allow your computer or mobile device to transmit location-based information about you and/or your device to us. By enabling those functions, you consent to HHG recording, processing, storing, and using the information as needed to fulfill your requests, for the website functionality, and for other purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

You may opt out of receiving future mailings and communications. Just contact us as set forth below. You may continue to receive communications about your account or orders even after you opt out.

  • With marketing service providers to analyze, develop, and provide you with offers, promotions, contests, sweepstakes, special events and other offerings that may interest you;
  • As reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, goodwill, and safety of HHG and its employees, partners, and affiliates;
  • To anyone to whom you send communications through the HHG Sites, including any electronic gift card transactions;
  • To fulfill the purpose for which you provide us the personal information;
  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information; and
  • With your consent.

Please be advised, however, that we reserve the right to disclose any personal information we may have about you without your prior consent if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary, including:

  • To comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request.
  • To enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, our terms of use and other agreements to which HHG or its affiliate is a party, including for billing and collection purposes.

Also, HHG sometimes shares with third parties certain nonpersonal, summary information about the people who use our Websites. This information is not personally identifiable in any way and consists of facts such as the average number of visitors to our Website per day and the most popular sections of our Website.

IV. What Kind of Security Does HHG Use to Protect Your Privacy?

We know that when you provide us with any type of information, you’re trusting us to keep it safe from unauthorized intrusion. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, our Websites have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.

V. What Do You Need to Do to Protect Your Personal Information?

You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your personal information. One option is simply not to volunteer any personal information. This approach would prevent you from taking advantage of several of our Websites’ most useful features. Another option is to configure your Web browser to refuse all new cookies, to notify you whenever you are about to receive a new cookie, or to disable cookies completely. However, many parts of our Websites will not function properly if you do not allow cookies. Most importantly, keep your login credentials (username, password, and, if applicable, answers to any security questions) secure, and do not share them with anyone. If you think your login credentials have been compromised, please reset your password immediately. If you need assistance with resetting your password, please contact us as set forth below.

VI. How Can You Update or Correct the Personal Information on Record with Us?

We know that you want the information we have on record about you to be as complete and accurate as possible. We feel the same way, since maintaining accurate information is essential to our efforts to give you the best possible experience when you visit our Website. That’s why we encourage you to correct any information that might be outdated or otherwise invalid. It’s easy to make changes. Simply log into your account to edit your information, or contact us as set forth below.

VII. What Can You Do About Violations of This Privacy Policy?

If at any time you believe HHG has not adhered to the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy, please notify us and we will make all commercially reasonable efforts to promptly address your concerns. We can be contacted as set forth below.
