1. Our Policy
Hamilton Mall (the “Mall,” “we,” or “us”) respects and understands our website users’ concerns about confidentiality and privacy when visiting ShopHamilton.com (the “site”), and we take all reasonable steps to ensure that any information you give us is handled in a safe and responsible manner. Because of our respect and understanding of your rights, we have developed this policy which discloses the privacy practices of the Mall and describes the information we collect about you during your use of our site and what use we may make of that information.
It is important to remember that by using our site, you agree to the terms of this policy. Because the technology in this area is expanding and improving at such a rapid pace, we suggest that you refer to this policy on a regular basis as it may change at any time, in the Mall’s sole discretion, in order to allow the Mall to take advantage of any technological advances for business purposes or legal reasons.
2. Information That We May Collect
We collect your information in different areas of our site. The exact information collected varies depending on the areas of our site that you use. We collect all information that you voluntarily disclose in the course of using our site or in becoming a registered user of our site. In the future, we may require further information as dictated by the nature of the services that we may offer.
When you place an order for a Gift Card, we ask for your name, address, email address, credit card name, and phone number.
When you enter a sweepstakes, we may ask for your name, address, email address, phone number, and date of birth.
3. Our Use of Your Information
We internally use personally identifiable information to improve our services, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content, to customize our site’s content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and better tailor it to meet our users’ needs.
We will also use personally identifiable information to deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as promotional emails, targeted banners, and promotions. If you supply us with your email address, you may receive occasional email blasts from us announcing services, product information, promotional events, or updates to our website. If you supply us with your mailing address, you may receive periodic mailings from us for the same purposes. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please send us an email to HamiltonMarketing@Kravco.com indicating your email address or mailing address as applicable.
We use information that we obtain from your current and past activities on the site to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.
4. Our Disclosure of Your Information
We do not sell, lend, or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party outside of the Mall, its parent, affiliates, subsidiaries, authorized agents, operating companies, and other related entities. We only disclose information to third parties when it is reasonably necessary in order to allow us to perform our services and deliver information to you or if you have provided explicit permission.
We cooperate with all law enforcement inquires and with all third parties to enforce the rights of others and all and any federal, state, or local laws or regulations. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials, including any government officials, as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
5. Third Party Collectors of Information
Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to third parties, whether they are participating retailers, service providers, advertisers, or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. Participating retailers, third party service providers, and advertisers adhere to their own privacy customs and policies. Because we do not control the Privacy Policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party. We do not make any representations or warranties as to how such third parties may use your information.
6. A Note to Parents and Children 12 and Younger
Except as provided below, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children 12 years old or younger without prior verifiable parental consent. Before a user submits any information directly to us, we ask for their age so that we can provide the younger users with a questionnaire that does not ask any unnecessary personal questions. In the case of a child who is 12 years old or younger, the questionnaire will simply ask for the child’s name and age and their parent’s email address (or phone number or mailing address if their parents do not have an email address). This is the minimum information necessary to allow us to properly receive parental consent in the manner provided below. Once we obtain parental consent, we will use a child’s information just as we use any information collected on our site. For a description of our collection and use of information, see paragraphs 2 and 3.
Parents may revoke their consent at any time and refuse to allow further collection or use of their child’s information. Further, parents may review and have us delete any information submitted by their child. We are prohibited from conditioning a child’s participation in an activity on the child’s disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary.
It is possible we will collect a child’s name and email address for purposes of entering a child in a sweepstakes or similar promotional activity. However, in any such situation, we would also collect the parent’s email address so that we could notify the parent of the child’s entry in the contest. The information collected in these cases would be used only for purposes of the particular sweepstakes and will be deleted when the particular promotion is completed. In such a case, the parent has the right to have their child’s information deleted from our database and prevent us from contacting their child in the future. Finally, we may collect a child’s email address in order to allow us to respond to a one-time request from your child. The child’s information is deleted after we respond to this one-time request.
In the event that there is a material change in the collection, use, or disclosure policy, we will send the parent an email message alerting them of this change and requesting their consent to continue to collect their child’s information.
7. Obtaining Parental Consent
In order to obtain parental consent, we will ask a child for their parent’s email or mailing address. If the parent has an email address, we will ask for parental consent to collect the child’s information via an email message, along with a follow-up message or telephone call to confirm that the parent, in fact, did consent to collection of their child’s information. If the parent does not have an email address, we will obtain parental consent by requesting the parent’s signature on a letter that we will send to the parent or by calling the parent on the telephone, following the child’s attempt to submit information to us.
