PII may include, but is not limited to, your name, photographs, phone number(s), credit card or other billing information, device information, email addresses, and postal addresses.

If you pre-order or purchase products via HBI Services, we may request that you provide your name, email address, billing and shipping address, credit card information and any other information necessary to complete the transaction. Credit card information is handled in accordance with payment card industry standards (including standards regarding use of industry standard encryption technology).
C. HBI Account Setup
In order to use certain HBI Services, you may be required to download a mobile smartphone application through a third-party app platform, and set up an account with HBI. During this process, you may be asked for certain information necessary to establish and use your account, including your name, telephone number, physical and email addresses, and profile photo.
3. HOW WE USE PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
PII is used for the following purposes: (i) to provide, administer, and improve HBI Services, (ii) to better understand your needs and interests, (iii) to fulfill requests you may make, (iv) to personalize your experience, (v) to provide you with HBI Services announcements, (vi) to provide you with further information and offers from HBI or third parties; (vii) to administer rewards, surveys, sweepstakes, contests, or other promotional activities or events sponsored or managed by HBI or our business partners; and (viii) to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes with users, enforce our agreements and to protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
4. COOKIES AND BEACONS

Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. The Help portion of your web browser, most likely found on the toolbar, typically tells you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Please note, however, that if you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to access all portions and/or features of HBI Services.
B.How We and Our Partners May Use Web Beacons, Pixel Tags, and Tracking Technology
We may and/or our third-party providers may employ software technology called web beacons (e.g., web tags or pixel tags/clear gifs) that help us better manage HBI Services content by informing us what content is effective and how it is used. These beacons or other tracking technology may be included in or associated with our Sites, in our e-mails or other communications that you receive from us and/or our partners, in our advertisements on other websites, or in our advertisements in others’ email messages. Similarly, third parties whose content or advertisements appear on our Site, or whose email messages HBI sends to our users, may also place web beacons in their advertisements or email messages. We and/or our third-party providers do so for purposes of measuring the effectiveness of the content, advertisements, and/or email messages, and in order to help us track your response and interests in order to deliver you relevant content and services. We may tie information gathered by web beacons or other tracking technology to PII.

In some of our communications, we use tracking means, such as a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Site. We track this data to help us measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
14. AGGREGATE AND NON-PII INFORMATION
HBI may collect and analyze non-PII information about the performance of HBI Services. From time to time, HBI may disclose and use aggregate and non-personally-identifying information for industry analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes, e.g., by reporting on trends in the usage of its devices, Sites or HBI Services.
15. DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES
A. Our Service Providers. We may employ third-party companies and individuals to administer and provide HBI Services on our behalf, (including, without limitation, bill and credit card payment processing, maintenance, administration, support, hosting and database management services). These third parties may have access to your PII only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
B. Your Third-Party Services. If you access HBI Services through a third-party, or otherwise use a third-party service provider in connection with the Service, or request or authorize us to give access or data to a third-party service provider we may provide PII (about you and your guests) and other information about the HBI Services, the Products and their usage to such third-parties. You should only use trusted service providers, and give your authorization and information to trusted recipients. We encourage you to read the privacy policies and service terms of the third-party services that you use, as their privacy policies and terms govern their usage of the information that you provide them. While we make reasonable efforts to protect your information while it is under our control, we have no obligation with respect to the functionality of such third-party services or the use of such information under control of these third parties.
HBI takes children’s privacy seriously. Our Services are not directed to children under the age of13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, please do not submit any personal information through our Site without the express consent and participation of a parent or guardian. If we learn that we have collected PII of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
17. CHANGING OR DELETING YOUR INFORMATION
All HBI users may review, update, correct or delete the PII in their registration profile by logging into their account and changing the “user preferences” associated with their account. You agree to provide HBI with accurate profile information and to update this information as necessary. Removing your information may limit our ability to provide HBI Services to you. If you completely delete all such information, your account will be deactivated and you may lose access to the Services and your use of the Products. You may also contact us at email@example.com if you have additional questions or concerns or to request a correction to any of your PII. We’ll take steps to modify or delete your information as soon as is practical, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.
18. LINKS TO OTHER SITES AND SERVICES
HBI Services may contain links to other websites or services. The fact that we link to a website or service is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation that we are affiliated with that third party. We do not exercise control over any third-party websites or services. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the PII you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit and services that you use.
19. DATA RETENTION
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally-accepted industry standards and take all reasonable steps to protect the PII submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it, including without limitation:
(i) Using encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive information;
(ii) Limiting physical access to our premises;
(iii) Limiting access to the information we collect about you;
(iv) Ensuring that we have appropriate security safeguards to keep personal information secure; and
(v) Where required by law, destroying or de-identifying PII.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We will comply with all privacy laws and make any legally required disclosures regarding breaches of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of PII consistent with our ability to determine the scope of a breach and our obligations to law enforcement.
21. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER
If you have a concern or complaint about how your personal information has been treated by us, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to us at 1833 Centinela Avenue., Santa Monica, CA 90404.
