We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our online store, and communicating with you.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Your personally identifiable information is used for our internal business purposes only. Hips-protect.com does not sell, rent or lease your personal information to independent third parties except as described below. We use personally identifiable information to identify account holders, open and maintain accounts, process, service and enforce transactions, send related communications to customers and to provide customer services and support.

You will need to contact the company that delivered the email to opt out of receiving ongoing emails.
Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information
We may use third party, unaffiliated, companies to help us maintain and operate our web site or for other reasons related to the operation of our business, and those companies may receive your personally identifiable information for that purpose. Should we be required to do so, we may also disclose personally identifiable information about you in connection with a legal claim, governmental request or investigation. Further, as our business develops, we may sell or buy corporate assets, and in such transactions customer information may be shared with third parties and become one of the transferred business assets.
Keeping Your Personally Identifiable Information Secure
Our authorized secure server, WorldPay, uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption - the industry standard -- when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as your credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make such sensitive information unreadable to anyone but us.
