Heart of Brooklyn (HOB)
Commitment to Your Privacy and Security
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. The following policy is intended to explain how your personal information will be treated as you make use of our site. Personal information includes your name, street and e-mail addresses, billing information, click-through activity, and any other personal information you may provide here. This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically.
HOB Heartbeat Newsletter
We offer a free electronic newsletter to users. HOB gathers the e-mail addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. The information collected here is used solely for the purpose of the newsletter. HOB does not sell, rent, or otherwise exploit in any way the e-mail addresses of eNews subscribers and recipients.
HOB Membership E-mails
Periodically, HOB's Membership department sends out information regarding membership renewals, benefits, public events, and important HOB news or information. Users' e-mail addresses are collected through forms that are filled out by the user. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the instructions at the bottom of every e-mail dispatch. HOB does not sell, rent, or otherwise exploit in any way the e-mail addresses of our members.
HOB tracks user traffic patterns throughout the site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. HOB does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME (data) type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
There are several places on the HOB web site where users can send questions or comments to HOB. The information supplied in these instances is used solely for the purpose of the inquiry, and this data is not stored or used elsewhere.
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personal information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
If you have any further questions or concerns about HOB's privacy policies and use of personal information, please contact us.
