This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for hutch-design.com. The statement does not include the privacy practices for partnered sites. We encourage our users who visit external sites from links within hutch-design.com to read the privacy statements of those sites, as their privacy practices may differ from ours. This privacy statement applies only to the site and does not necessarily apply to our off-line collection of information. If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should first contact us via e-mail at shop@hutch-design.com. Please submit a written request to the email address specified above specifying that you want a copy of Hutch’s “Privacy Rights.” Please allow up to 30 days for us to process your request. You may submit your request once per year.

In order to make you feel comfortable and secure in our online store, we have taken numerous precautions to guard your security while making purchases online. For each visitor to our Website, our Web server automatically recognizes the consumer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, domain name and e-mail address (where possible).

 

Collected Information

When you visit the hutch-design.com website, in order for us to provide you with the products or services that you have requested, you may be asked to provide us with personally identifiable information. We collect and retain two types of information from site visitors: (i) personal information voluntarily provided by individual visitors when interacting on the site, making purchases of products or services from us, or on certain other occasions, such as via forms or in emails; and (ii) tracking data, which is automatically collected from every site visitor and recorded on our log files. For example, when you order a product, we may ask you to become a registered user of our site, during which you will be asked for your name, shipping and billing addresses, your date of birth, your e-mail address, and your credit card number or other payment-related information. In addition, we may keep a record of any correspondence, including any information contained therein. You may decline to provide any personal information, but this may prohibit registration on the site or limit participation in activities or services offered on the Site. In an effort to improve our site we may collect non-personal information about how users navigate through the site. Without limitation, we may collect information and tracking data regarding the number and frequency of visits to the site, viewed and/or purchased items, information on websites accessed prior to and following your visit to the site, the software used to access the site, your IP address and other device identifiers, Internet service provider-related information, and clickstream data. However, that information typically does not contain any personally identifiable information about you. The tracking data we record may include the location of your computer. We may combine all information obtained and may disclose this information within our corporate family of companies and share it as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We may post customer testimonials on our website, which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer's name. We do obtain the customer's consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.

 

Cookies

We automatically collect data using cookies. A "cookie" is a small data file that our site transfers to your computer. We deliver these cookies and collect data on our sites, and we also may use a third party agent to deliver cookies and collect data. We use the data we collect using cookies to help support the integrity of the registration and buying processes on our site, retain your preferences and account settings, learn about your possible interests so we can personalize our marketing and information to better support your interests, and improve our sites and your experience.

We also collect information using web beacons. Web beacons are electronic images that may be used on our site or in our emails. We use web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and to tell if an email has been opened or acted upon. Web beacons also help us analyze our customers' online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our website and our advertising. We work with service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information.

 

Use of Information

Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for products that you request. Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about our company to you.

We may transmit your personal information to service providers who assist us in processing orders, shipping products to you, processing your payment information, sending you catalogs, conducting surveys, on and offline sweepstakes, processing job applications, sending you e-mails and newsletters, and helping us decide whether to extend credit to you. We have agreements with these service providers that they will protect your privacy in accordance with our standard Privacy Statement. Some of those organizations may have their own Privacy Statements that may give you additional protections, so you are encouraged to read those statements when presented to you.

How do I Access, Update, or Delete My Information

If you are a registered user of the website, you can manage many aspects of your registration information. For security reasons, however, some parts of your personal information may not be changed online and may require you to call or write to us in order to verify your identity before such changes can be made. The online registration area will also permit you to exercise control over the use of your e-mail address, allowing you to opt-out of future e-mail messages from this website. Unfortunately, due to various legal and recordkeeping requirements, we may be required to maintain records about your purchases or other activities on this website. However, you will always be permitted to opt-out of any marketing uses of information stored about you.

What Information Will Be Disclosed if Required by Law

If required by law, we may provide any and all information we have about you to law enforcement or other government agencies, pursuant to a subpoena, warrant, or other order by a court of competent jurisdiction. In all cases, we will require written documentation of the request, proof of the identity of the law enforcement official making the request, and we will take steps to authenticate the validity of the request. Any law enforcement or government agency request submitted with less than a court-issued order will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis according to the need and urgency, as well as the particular law enforcement agency making the request.

 

Collected Information

On certain portions of our website, we provide links to sponsored social networking sites and message boards. Those features may require you to provide additional registration information, such as creating a username and password, providing an e-mail address or other information. It is important to understand that when you participate in online discussions, any information you choose to provide is considered "public knowledge" and it is your responsibility to protect your own privacy. If you register to use the social networking or message board features, we will keep your information private, in accordance with this policy. You have the choice of making certain information about yourself available to other users of the system. It is your responsibility to manage your account settings in order to maintain the level of privacy that you desire. If you inadvertently post private or other inappropriate information, we will do our best to assist you in removing it, but we will not be responsible for any problems arising from your errors. The social networking forums and message boards are provided without any warranty and you use them at your own risk.
