Types of Information We Collect
We have the ability to collect two types of information from people who visit our sites: Personally Identifiable Information and Aggregate Information.
Personally Identifiable Information is any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, etc.
Aggregate Information is anonymous data such as your IP address (i.e., a number that is assigned to your computer whenever you connect to the internet), your domain name (e.g., "XYZ.com") and user statistics (e.g., 45% of our users are female). Aggregate data is very much like radio ratings that show the radio network how many persons are listening to a particular radio program.
What We Do With the information
Hogarclub.com collects Aggregate Information to diagnose technical problems on its sites, to help us administer the sites, to help us improve the quality of the pages that make up our sites, to permit us to provide data to advertisers about the volume of use on, and frequency of visitors to, the sites, to gather broad demographic information and to improve our sites to assure that they are as appealing as we can make them for as many people as possible.
Sometimes we share this information with our business partners, and sometimes we permit our business partners to collect the information directly from you, for advertising and promotional purposes. In no event, however, is this information matched to your Personally Identifiable Information.
Hogarclub.com also collects Personally Identifiable Information. This can be done when you choose certain products or services offered on our sites. For example, when you order products from one of the merchants who advertise their products on hogarclub.com, when you subscribe to an email newsletter, when you participate in our chat rooms, and when you register for contests, sweepstakes, and other promotional opportunities provided by hogarclub.com, you are supplying us with your Personally Identifiable Information. We use such information to try to offer you our products and services, to improve the quality of the content that we provide on the sites, to personalize you online experience (such as, for example, your horoscope and weather areas), and to build a strong community (for example, certain of our products enable our users to search for users with similar interests based on their Personally Identifiable Information that we collect). From time to time, we also share such information with other hogarclub.com companies and with persons or companies with whom we do business, who might also wish to offer their products or services to you, such as retail stores, finance, real estate, insurance, travel, automotive, telecommunications, technology, electronics, health, beauty, food, beverage, leisure and entertainment goods and services.
In addition, we may transfer your Personally Identifiable Information as part of the assets of hogarclub.com if hogarclub.com is, or parts of its businesses are, sold to, merged with or acquired by, a third party. Hogarclub.com may also disclose your Personally Identifiable information when required by law or court order.
Whether or not you provide such information is completely your own choice. You are not obligated to answer any question that is presented to you. Of course, if you choose not to provide the information, you might be unable to access certain services, offers and content on our sites. (For example, we cannot mail you the product you ordered if you do not tell us your address, etc.)

We take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. Our sites are general audience sites. Nevertheless, we do not permit children under age 13 to register on our sites for any product or service. We do not collect or solicit personal information about users under age 13.
Children under age 13 should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any personal information to anyone online. We urge parents and guardians to participate in your children's online activities and use parental control or other internet filtering technology to supervise your children's access to the internet.
Protecting the security of your personal information that you share with us is of the utmost important to us. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the internet or data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our sites, and you do so at your own risk. By accessing our Internet sites, you acknowledge and agree that we may notify you by email in the event of a breach of security involving your Personally Identifiable information.
We urge you to keep your password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also, remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a Library or an internet cafe.
