This Policy is a part of the terms and conditions of use which govern the LH Site. It covers how Local Hem treats personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, and like information (the “Personal Information”). Local Hem uses secure third-party service providers that collect payment and billing information (the “Payment Information”).
3. Use of Personal Information; Information Sharing and Disclosure
Local Hem does not sell, rent, trade, publish or share any data received from you, including Personal Information or Billing Information, unless otherwise detailed in this Policy, to comply with any law, to provide a Local Hem service, in order to process transactions made through the LH Site, or to protect Local Hem’s rights.
Local Hem receives and may record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookies, and the page you request in order to better operate the LH Site. Local Hem may use analytic tools or services to view aggregate statistics about the usage of various aspects of the LH Site. We use both your Personal Information and certain non-personally-identifiable information, such as anonymous user usage data, browser type, clickstream data, and others, to improve the quality and design of the LH Site and to create new features, functionality, and services.
Local Hem does not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send marketing messages unless you’ve opted-in to receive such messages. You may choose to receive updates from Local Hem and/or from individual Retail Partners. We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major LH Site changes or for customer service purposes).
You are hereby advised that any Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (on message boards, in reviews and discussion areas, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. If you post Personal Information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. As previously stated, Local Hem does not rent or sell your Personal Information.
Additionally, Local Hem reserves the right to disclose Personal Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that Local Hem believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce the Local Hem terms and conditions of service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the LH Site, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Local Hem, our users or others.
4. Collection of IP Addresses
IP Addresses are automatically reported by your browser each time you view a web page. IP addresses may be used for various purposes, including: (i) to diagnose or service technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific web company or ISP; (ii) to tailor advertising based on geographic area or other information derived from your IP address (aggregate information derived from IP addresses may also be reported to advertisers); to estimate the total number of users visiting the LH Site from specific geographical regions.
6. Third Party Service Providers; Third Party Websites
Local Hem may contract with various third parties who help us provide and maintain the LH Site or the Local Hem services. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such third parties from disclosing your Personal Information, except for the purposes of providing the services for which such third parties were hired. We cannot, however, guarantee that such parties will not disclose your Personal Information and Local Hem will not be liable for any unauthorized use or disclosure by any third party.
While using the LH Site, you may link to websites operated by our Retail Partners or other third parties. This does not mean that Local Hem endorses these websites. Local Hem does not make any representations or warranties about any website you may access through the LH Site. These other sites are independent from Local Hem, and Local Hem has no control over, or responsibility for, their information or activities.
7. Limitation of Access to Personal Information
Local Hem limits access to Personal Information about you to employees of Local Hem, and of the Retail Partners, who Local Hem believes reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
8. Data Security and Change of Control
Local Hem, through third party service providers, uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your Personal Information. Local Hem cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Local Hem and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Local Hem, through third party service providers, makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If Local Hem learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Local Hem may post a notice on the LH Site if a security breach occurs.
In the event that Local Hem is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, Local Hem reserves the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information Local Hem has collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, Local Hem may not be able to control how your Personal Information is treated, transferred, or used.
9. Changes and Updates to This Privacy Notice
This Policy may be revised periodically. Notification of all changes to this Policy will be promptly denoted within this Policy at the top of the page for 30 days. Please revisit this page to stay aware of any changes. Your continued use of the LH Site constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Notice and any future revisions.
