We collect two types of information about our Website Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies a specific end user. When you engage in certain activities on the website, such as creating an account, ordering a product or service from us or our partners, filling out a survey, sending us or our partner's feedback, requesting information about our services, applying for a job, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in these activities if you elect to engage we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, mailing address, email address, telephone number and date of birth.
When you order products or services, we may also ask you to provide us with your credit card number, expiration date and authentication codes or related information. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not identify a specific End User. This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. We may automatically collect this information when you visit our Website through the use of electronic tools like Cookies.
We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Website, analyze trends and gather demographic information. We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.
If you sign up to our mailing list for specific offer types or daily notification of deals in selected cities, an Ethically Hip account, or other service or promotion that requires registration, you will be required to provide a valid email address. We will only use this email address to contact you as part of the transaction process, to send you periodic emails that you have subscribed to, or for purposes that are intended to enhance your user experience. We may also occasionally contact you to obtain feedback on a specific merchant deal you have participated in. We will not share your contact information with third parties unless you have opted-in to receiving communications from those third parties, such as in the process of purchasing a voucher.
Ethically Hip will generally allow you to choose to not receive certain types of email communication from us, except for those that are absolutely necessary to provide you with details of any purchase you have made. Emails will always contain a link at the bottom to be removed from our mailing list.
For certain services, such as our merchant deals, we also request credit card or other payment account information which are maintained in encrypted form on secure servers. We do not share this information with any third party except for those companies responsible for processing credit card transactions for us.
Like most sites, Ethically Hip makes use of browser "cookies". Cookies are small text files placed on your computer's hard disk by our server. They allow us to quickly check your status as a subscriber and facilitate access to your preferences.
We may occasionally collect and store your IP address. This helps us diagnose problems with our servers, administer our site, gather non-personal information about our users but most importantly detect and prevent fraudulent activity. It does not identify you personally in any way.
Ethically Hip only shares personal information with other companies or individuals in the following limited circumstances:
Although we take reasonable steps to ensure that all data we use is accurate, we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary. We make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes.
We take security concerns very seriously. We use secure server software, known as an SSL certificate, to ensure that sensitive personal and financial information is encrypted. All of our third party partners use similar technology to ensure that your information is very secure.
Without our supporters and dedicated customers Ethically Hip can do nothing. You are important to us and so are the charities we strive to support.
If you are not 100% satisfied with a purchase you have made on EthicallyHip.com then contact us so we can make it right or refund your money. No questions asked!
