The Information Huneycomb May Collect

  • Information You Provide

Huneycomb may collect and store any personal information you enter through the Services or the Site. This may include personally identifying information, such as your name, username, residence, e-mail address, birthdate, pictures, and/or credit card information. Huneycomb may also request information about your interests and activities, and location. No system can be completely secure. Therefore, Huneycomb does not promise, and you should not expect, that such information may not be inadvertently collected and that such personal information will remain secure.
You also may give us permission to access your information on other services. If you connect to the Services using your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or other third-party service credentials (each, a “Supported Platform”), you authorize us to collect your authentication information, such as your username, encrypted access credentials, and other information that may be available on or through your Supported Platform account, including but not limited to your name, pictures, and friends/followers lists. The information we get from Supported Platforms may depend on your settings or their privacy policies.
Huneycomb does not store any user financial information, even though we may request information about you and your credit card and/or bank account. Huneycomb does not store certain financial data due to its use of third party agents, such as Stripe, as its financial transaction facilitator. Please refer to such third parties’ Terms and Privacy Policies for more information about how these parties use your information. We do not store any user financial information, even though we may request information about yourself and your credit card and/or bank account. That financial information is handled, processed, and stored by the third party financial transaction processing companies. To the extent that Huneycomb uses third party providers such as Stripe for financial transaction services, we believe that such third parties take the privacy of your personal information seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of their privacy policies.

  • Information Collected Automatically

Like many sites on the Internet, the Site automatically collects information from your browser when you visit the Site. This information includes your IP address, your browser type and language, access times, the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from Huneycomb (see “Cookies” below), and the referring website address. If you use Huneycomb’s mobile application, Huneycomb may collect various non-identifying information, such as your mobile device type, device properties, IP address, profile views, ad views, ad clicks, search queries, store and product views, photo views, and page views. We may also combine all of this non-identifying information with other non-identifying information to infer interests or demographic characteristics. In order for Huneycomb to work with your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, BlackBerry, or other mobile device, Huneycomb must collect your Device Identification Code or “DIC”. The DIC is a special type of identifier used in software applications in order to provide a unique reference number for applications like those used by your mobile device. Your DIC is not shared with other users.
