How Does Habitout Gather and Use Information?
Server Statistics. We collect general statistics to track user trends on our Site. These statistics include hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Site, page views, and navigational patterns. The information that is collected in this manner does NOT provide us with any personally identifiable information about our users. It helps us track “where” our users are coming from. This allows us to pinpoint high traffic areas and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our users. As part of that ongoing analysis, Habitout also uses devices called “web beacons” to help us identify when emails sent to you have been received and read. In order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Habitout site, we may collect information, such as IP addresses, into a log file to be used to identify potential hackers of the Habitout site.
Personal Information You Provide Us. When you register on our Site you are required to provide us your username/email address and password. In order to purchase any item on the site, you must also provide us with your full legal name and a full street address including city, state and zip code, and telephone number. Every time you use our service, we collect information about your usage. For example, we collect information regarding the products you browse and the orders you place on our Sites. We use the personal information about you stored in our member database in various ways to provide our services to you, to communicate with you, and to otherwise conduct our business.
We also use non-personally identifiable “aggregate” information about how our service is used to improve our service, to make it more responsive to our customer's preferences, and for other internal purposes. We also make such aggregate information (which does not identify any specific individual) available to third parties.
What security procedures does Habitout use to protect personal Information?
Does Habitout store Credit Card details on the site?
Credit Card details are not stored our database or server, and are processed through a secure SSL environment.
Will Habitout Disclose The Information It Collects To Outside Parties?
We may share your personal information with third party vendors who help us provide our services to you, such as email providers, mail houses, shipping firms, companies that provide us with marketing services, and other such third parties, but such sharing is always done pursuant to a contract that requires the third party to protect the confidentiality of such information and which prohibits them from using the information for any other purposes.
We may also disclose your personally identifiable information as we believe is reasonably necessary to comply with law, regulation or other governmental authority, to determine your credit status or enable debt collection, initiate legal proceedings to recover losses of or otherwise protect our rights or property, or for insurance claim processing, or to prevent harm to yourself or others.
External Links. Other companies or organizations may have links to their Sites on our Site.
Collection Of Information From Children.
Habitout does not direct any of our content specifically to children. Users of our Site are required to be at least eighteen (18) years old, and any user under 18 is not an authorized user. If we learn that a user is under thirteen (13) years of age, we will promptly delete any Personal Information we have collected about that user.
After registration, customers will receive promotional e-mail communication from Habitout regarding items on the site. Customers will receive transactional e-mails if they engage in any buying or selling transactions with Habitout.
Promotional e-mails should be expected weekly, whereas transactional e-mails are received if a visitor has bought or submitted an item to sell at Habitout.
All non-transactional e-mails contain a single click unsubscribe link at the bottom. Clicking on this link will unsubscribe the user from all further promotional e-mails.
Every e-mail sent by Habitout gives the user the ability to unsubscribe, change, edit or remove any information previously provided. Equally, any such communication always allows the recipient to unsubscribe from the relevant service in order not to receive any further messages. Within each e-mail, the user will be able to unsubscribe by clicking on the unsubscribe link. This link will give you the option to unsubscribe completely and edit your information.
