Although the Account Information and Subscriber Data is necessary for 400 Hugs™ to deliver its services, much of the Personal Data collected is optional with respect to use of this Web Site. Accordingly, Users can determine to a large extent what information they wish to submit on a voluntary basis to 400 Hugs™. In addition to the initial voluntary registration process, 400 Hugs™ occasionally asks Users for personal information at other times, including when purchasing certain services on the Web Site. “Cookies” “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser software on your computer’s hard drive or temporarily in your computer’s memory.

Although most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, if you prefer, a User may decline the placement of a cookie on his or her hard drive by using the appropriate feature(s) of one’s web browser software (if available) to delete the cookie. Users should understand, however, that certain areas within this Web Site may not function properly if the web browser will not accept cookies. What about external web sites? To the extent hyperlinks are utilized to access third party sites, Users should be aware that these third party web sites are not controlled by 400 Hugs™ and, therefore, are not subject to this Privacy Policy. Users should check the privacy policies of these individual sites to see how their personal information will be utilized by the proprietors of those third party web sites. What does 400 Hugs™ do to keep this Web Site secure? 400 Hugs™ has implemented a number of security features throughout the Web Site designed to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal information.

The secure server encrypts all information a User inputs before it is sent to 400 Hugs™. Please be advised, however, that although 400 Hugs™ has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Web Site for its Users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from 400 Hugs™ via this Web Site or E-mail cannot be guaranteed.

Can you opt-out of 400 Hugs™’s data collection and/or distribution? As noted earlier, the collection, use and distribution of Personal Data greatly assist 400 Hugs™ in creating a more, personalized, relevant and intelligent service. Without the use of Personal Data, 400 Hugs™ could not deliver its valuable content and services in the most beneficial way. Consequently, 400 Hugs™ does ask for the submission of some Personal Data. At this time, 400 Hugs™ does not offer Users of this Web Site the ability to “opt-out” of having their data used as described in this Privacy Policy once they have provided information to 400 Hugs™.
