Collection of personal data

Comments

When customers leave comments and product reviews on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection.

Contact forms

When you send us a message using our contact form, you agree to provide us with your name, email address, and other personally identifying information including IP address. We only use that contact information to respond to your inquiry.

We use Google reCAPTCHA on this site. reCAPTCHA collects personal information from users to make the determination of whether they are human and not a bot to prevent SPAM. The reCAPTCHA algorithm checks to see if there is a Google cookie placed on the computer being used. An additional reCAPTCHA cookie will then be added to the user’s browser.

You can read Google’s terms and privacy for more information.

Email newsletters

When you sign up to receive email newsletters, your e-mail address and any other contact information you provide will be stored in Mailchimp, our email newsletter service provider.

Orders

When you place an order, our website records your billing and mailing addresses, with contact information to fulfill your order.

Cookies

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content

Pages on this site may include embedded content such as videos and images. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use Jetpack to protect the website from malicious login attempts, track site use by visitors, and to calculate shipping and taxes on orders. Our use of the Jetpack service is governed by Automattic.com’s cookie policy.

Stripe processes credit cards using a tokenized process that does not store your credit card information on our website. You may opt to save payment information in your user account, but there is no way for your card information to be stolen from our website.

Mailchimp provides our email newsletter service, and stores contact information about those who subscribe to receive our newsletters.

Facebook provides a chat feature that site visitors may use to contact the HillCo, LLC Facebook page. If you chat with us using the Facebook Messenger service, that interaction is subject to the Facebook terms of service and Facebook’s privacy policy.

Retention of your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Your Data Rights

We do not share, sell, lease, or otherwise provide your personal information to any partners or providers without your consent.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

To request an exported file of your personal data, or to request that we erase any personal data we hold about you, please email sales@hillcobees.com
