HFL Kitchen – what types of information we collect
In general, when you visit our website you do not have to tell us who you are, or reveal any personally identifiable information to us. Unless you specifically agree to tell us, we will never know who you are, and you are able to interact with our website in a relatively anonymous way.
‘Personally identifiable information’ is defined as any specific data that could disclose you as an individual, or information that when combined with other, easily accessible information, could disclose your identity. Examples of personally identifiable information include your name, address, telephone number, billing and shipping information, credit card information or e-mail address.
When you visit our website our servers automatically record basic information about your usage, such as the type of internet browser and operating system you are using, the date, time and duration of your visit and the pages you viewed. This information is anonymous and does not identify you as an individual, nor will we combine it with information that does identify you as an individual. This information is collected and analysed to provide us with a greater understanding of how you use our website.
Where necessary we collect personally identifiable information on certain areas of our website, for example, if you register on a forum, enter a competition or subscribe to an e-mail newsletter. The personally identifiable information collected may consist of a username or unique user ID and contact information, such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone and fax numbers. From time to time you may have the opportunity to make purchases on our website, in which case we would need to collect your order information, credit card details and delivery instructions in order to facilitate payment and shipment.
From time to time we may invite you to answer survey questions and provide certain demographic information, such as your age, sex, income bracket, country of access, and location of connection (e.g. home or work). Your response to these types of surveys is entirely voluntary and you should feel no obligation to participate.
