HOT SAUCE PRIVACY POLICY

Last Update: SEPTEMBER 10, 2020

Hot Sauce respects an individual's privacy and will only collect, use, store or disclose your personally identifiable information (“personal information”) in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We recognize every individual's right to privacy and acknowledge our obligation to preserve the confidentiality of personal information. This Privacy Policy applies to Hot Sauce and our collection, use, storage and disclosure of personal information through our website, purchase of our goods or services, or engagement with us on social media (collectively, the “Services”). Hot Sauce reserves the right to update this Privacy Policy at any time and such modifications shall be effective immediately.

CONSENT

When you provide Hot Sauce with your personal information, you understand and agree to Hot Sauce's collection, use, storage, disclosure and retention of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or as otherwise permitted by law. Except in limited circumstances, you may withdraw your consent to our use of your personal information at any time.

 

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The information we collect falls into three categories: (1) information we collect from you; and (2) information we collect when you use our Services.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU. We collect information about you whenever you use our Services. Examples of using our Services include, but are not limited to, visiting or making purchases at our website, subscribing to the Hot Sauce newsletter, downloading a Hot Sauce freebie, contacting Hot Sauce through our Get In Touch page and contact forms, providing comments or other feedback. The information you give us may include your first and/or last name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, credit card number, date of birth, gender, other demographic information and any other information you provide us.

We use information you provide to us to deliver the requested product and/or service, to improve our overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT WHEN YOU USE OUR SERVICES. When you use our Services, we may collect information about the Services you use and how you use them. We do this to ensure that we are offering you the best products and services in a secure environment, and as part of our efforts to constantly improve your experience. In this process, we may use automatic data collection technologies including Google Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through our website, and any communications between your computer and our website. Among other things, we will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AUTOMATICALLY is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. We use this data to improve our website and our service offerings. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.

USE OF COOKIES AND PIXELS

Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how our site is used. In addition, when you first visit our website you will be asked to consent to cookies. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

 

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. 

 

Hot Sauce reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. The Company reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.​

EMAIL INFORMATION

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail, and telephone. This also applies when you register for our website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on this site. For further information see the email policies below.

EMAIL POLICIES

We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information.

All e-mails sent from our organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further e-mail communication from us.

 

Our emails provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and our partners by reading the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from us at anytime. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mail.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

Hot Sauce takes reasonable steps to ensure that any personal information you provide is protected and remains secure. We use recognized online secure payment systems and implement generally accepted standards of security to protect against personal data loss or misuse.

While we strive to protect your personal information, Hot Sauce cannot warrant the security of any personal information you transmit to us or from our on-line services.

By consent to this Privacy Policy, you acknowledge that your personal data may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the misuse of your data by other parties.

Hot Sauce will notify you promptly of any known breach of our security systems or your data which might expose you to serious risk.
