Hushly is a provider of user OPT-IN Service where users allow specific Hushly Partners to send more messages.
II. Information Collection
When expressing an interest in obtaining additional information from Hushly, Opting-In (allowing specific Hushly Partners to send more messages) or registering to become a Hushly Partner, Hushly requires you to provide certain contact information about yourself. Once you provide Hushly your personal information, you are not anonymous to us. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers and to partners servers (only those who you allow to send more messages). We may collect and store the following personal information:
- Transactional information based on your activities on the sites (such as emails) and other content you request or generate
- Other information from your interaction with our site, our partner sites, our services, content and advertising, including computer and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the site, ad data, IP address and standard web log information; and
- Other contact and firmographic information we learn about you from our data services partners.
III. Use of Information
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide a smooth, efficient, and customized experience. You agree that we and our partners (only those who you allow to send more messages) use personal information to:
- Provide the Service and customer support you request;
- Customize, measure and improve our services, content and advertising; and
- Tell you about service updates and promotional offers based on your communication preferences.
By using Hushly, you consent to the collection and use of the information as described in Sections II and III.
We use “cookies” or similar data identifiers (small files placed on your hard drive in certain of our applications to help analyze our users’ use and penetration; customize our services and content; and promote trust and safety. A few important things you should know about cookies are that:
- Most cookies are “session cookies,” meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session. Other cookies are “persistent cookies” and remain on your hard drive or smartphone after you terminate the session. These are used to customize your user experience and avoid the necessity of repeatedly inputting the same information.
- You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of the Service.
VI. Sharing of Collected Information
Hushly may share data about you with our partners (only those who you allowed to send more messages). Hushly reserves the right to use or disclose information provided if required by law or if Hushly reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. It is our policy to cooperate fully with any law enforcement officials or agencies in the investigation of any violation of these Terms or of any applicable laws. Hushly reserves the right to seek civil, criminal or injunctive relief, at its sole discretion and without obligation, to enforce these Terms.
VII. Retention of Collected Information
You and Hushly may terminate the Service at any time. Upon termination, you will not have access to the Service. Contact Information and content posted through the Service will remain on the Hushly database and available for use in accordance with Hushly Terms, policies and practices.
VIII. Hushly Partner Communications
We communicate with partners through e-mail. Partners may choose to opt out of receiving e-mail communications from Hushly and clear opt-out instructions are included in e-mail messages. However, we periodically communicate information to Partners about Partner accounts, renewal notices and information about service changes in order to ensure the integrity of our services and such communications cannot be terminated by Partners unless they cease to subscribe to the service.
IX. Changes in Policy
Our web hosting and other services providers use lots of tools to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, including encryption, passwords and physical security. However, as you probably know, no data storage facility can be made completely secure, and third parties may unlawfully access data or intercept transmissions or private communications. Therefore, although we try very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain secure and private. If you are not comfortable risking the inadvertent disclosure of your private information please do not post it on the Site or Service.
