When you visit theHunter you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Web Site use information collected by us as you interact with our Web Site.
When you register with theHunter, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.
When you enter theHunter, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all theHunter visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser.
When you use theHunter, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, form groups, set up events, add applications, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friend list. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.
Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on theHunter is a violation of the theHunter Terms of Service and should be reported to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend's email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email or instant message inviting him or her to visit the site. theHunter stores this information to send this one-time invitation, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
theHunter may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the theHunter service through the operation of the service (e.g., photo tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience.
If personal information is not provided to us, then theHunter may not agree theHunter Club membership and may not be able to provide access to certain content and functionality on theHunter website, or to provide other information, products or services which may be requested.
By using theHunter, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States and the European Union.
theHunter does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for theHunter or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on theHunter. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under age 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
When you register with theHunter, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to
people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on theHunter. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send
you notifications regarding new services offered by theHunter that we think you may find valuable.
Profile information is used by theHunter primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it (e.g., posting to your wall), other users of theHunter may be able to supplement your profile.
Profile information you submit to theHunter will be available to users of theHunter who belong to at least one of the networks you allow to access the information through your privacy settings. Your name, network names, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the theHunter network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your friends can find you and send a friend request. People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access your profile information unless they have a relationship to you (friend, friend of friend, member of your networks, etc.) that allows such access based on your privacy settings.
theHunter may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. theHunter reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
theHunter may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people in
a network like a band or movie and personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you theHunter. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about
the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you put a favorite movie in your profile, we might
serve you an advertisement highlighting a screening of a similar one in your town. But we don't tell the movie company who you are.
We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, theHunter Platform developers and other users of theHunter, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile (e.g., removing photo tag links).
As noted in Section 1, if you decide to purchase a membership and are 18 years old or older, your full name, email address, and credit card billing information, including mailing address will be required at the time of purchase. That information is not stored by theHunter, and, instead, is collected and stored by our payments processing vendor for the purpose of processing payments made to Expansive Worlds AB. That information is safeguarded with appropriate security, and it will not be used for other purposes. Furthermore, our payments processing vendor has agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal and financial information it obtains from theHunter website, and only to use this information on our behalf. Our financial institution is bound by all applicable privacy laws relating to the provision of financial services.
If you decide to purchase a membership and are under the age of 18 and over the age of 13, your parent's full name, email address, and credit card billing information including mailing address will be required at the time of purchase. That information is not stored by theHunter, and, instead, is collected and stored by our payments processing vendor for the purpose of processing payments made to Expansive Worlds AB. That information is safeguarded with appropriate security, and it will not be used for other purposes. Furthermore, our payments processing vendor has agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal and financial information it obtains from theHunter website, and only to use this information on our behalf. Our financial institution is bound by all applicable privacy laws relating to the provision of financial services.
theHunter's community service is about sharing information with others � friends and people in your networks � while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through theHunter. Our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:
Access and control over most personal information on theHunter is readily available through the profile editing tools. theHunter users may modify or delete any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their theHunter account may do so on the My Account page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of theHunter.
Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on theHunter, however, (e.g., sending a personal message to another theHunter user) you generally cannot remove such communications.
theHunter takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or your password), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). (To learn more about SSL, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer). Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of theHunter Web Site, please contact us at email@example.com.
