PRIVACY POLICY


LAST UPDATED ON AUGUST 23RD, 2016.

Thanks for using HRD! We care deeply about your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains our policies on what information we collect, why we collect it, and how we use and disclose it when you use our services. By using our services, you consent to our collection, use, and disclosure of information about you defined in this Privacy Policy.

Let’s get into this jank

First things first, let’s break down the WHO.

When we say “we”, “us”, “Hampton Roads Directory”, and “HRD”, we are referring to Hampton Roads Directory, a Simon Media, LLC product. Our “Site” is our website and mobile application. “Our services” include the website, email, and mobile application features and operations. “You” and “your” refer to you, the HRD user. “User” refers to someone who explores, discovers, connects, and in any way uses our Site. “Stops” refer to third party businesses using our services.

Now on to the good stuff, the WHAT and the WHY.

The information we collect and what we do with it

When using our service, we collect and store information about you to create a streamlined and customized HRD experience. With this information, we carry out your requests, maintain, expand, and tailor on our services, track our services’ usage, provide feedback to Stops, cater our advertising, market HRD, connect with you, keep our systems safe, secure, and up-to-date, and comply with any and all legal obligations.

The information we share

Why we collect personal information

We collect personal information to provide personalized services to our users, to help monitor and improve the services we offer, to sell advertising space, and to market services to users.

Your personal information

With any information you give, other users could identify you. You can reduce this possibility by using a pseudonym but this could affect your credibility when contributing.

You can change the settings of your public information here.

Now that is the basics of our Privacy Policy. There are a few other odds and ends we have to go over.  

What happens when you delete your account

You can delete your account here and we will remove or disassociate all your posted content. We may still keep information about you for reasons authorized in this Privacy Policy. Deleting a Stop account does not remove the Stop listing, rating, or reviews.

Children

HRD does not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the age of 16 or knowingly allow such person to register for our services. If you believe a child is using our services without parental consent, please contact us here.

Security

We work hard to protect HRD and our users from any online threat. We follow industry standards to protect the information submitted to us. Like any website, we cannot guarantee 100% security.

Privacy Policy Changes

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time. We will notify you by email or by posting a notice if we make any material changes. If you continue to use HRD after the changes are in effect, you consent to the revised Privacy Policy.
