Who we are
Our website address is: http://www.hsbeads3.com.
Your privacy is very important to us! This is why we make sure you are always in control of what we do with your personal information.
As technology and privacy laws are changing, we will occasionally update this policy. If you continue to use HSBEADS3.COM after these changes are posted, you agree to the revised policy.
We will keep your personal information accurate, complete and up-to-date with the information that you provide to us. If you request access to your personal information, we will inform you of the existence, use and disclosure of your personal information as allowed by law, and provide you access to that information.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect this information when you visit our website or engage with us either by email, web form, instant message, phone, or post content on our website (including forums & blogs). We also collect any additional information that you may provide to us.
When you provide personal information to us you’re consenting to us collecting and using that information in line with this policy and the terms of service. You are likely to provide personal information when you complete membership registration, make donations, subscribe to a newsletter, email list, submit feedback, enter a contest, fill out a survey, or communicate with us in any other way.
When visitors leave comments 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 spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
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.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
We do NOT store your credit or debit card information nor do we have sight of this information since the transaction is entirely between you and the gateway provider and this transaction is concluded on the site of the gateway provider.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Our website also uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage.
Who we share your data with
We accept payments through PayPal. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
How long we retain 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 (if any), 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.
What rights you have over your data
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
When you email or write to us then we retain that email or letter to allow sufficient time for your query to be dealt with. Once the matter has been concluded, emails and letters will be kept as long as required to keep proof for legal requirements and will be delete afterwards.
We do NOT use any information submitted to us by email or letter for marketing purposes.
We do not share, disclose, sell, rent, or otherwise provide personal information to other companies for the marketing of their own products or services.
How we protect your data
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
We follow industry standards on information security management to safeguard sensitive information, such as financial information, intellectual property and any other Personal Information entrusted to us. All personal information is fully encrypted and stored in secure off site ‘zero knowledge’ locations. Our information security systems apply to people, processes and information technology systems on a risk management basis.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of a data breach we shall inform you and the relevant authorities as soon as we become aware of it.
