Nature of information collected at huginnovations.com and how it is used
We may collect personal information about you when you place an order with Hug, including name, address, email address, phone numbers, payment card information, information used to personalize a Hug product or Hug experience, social security/aadhar number (or equivalent national identification number), date of birth and other information. Hug uses this information to facilitate order processing and to enable us to contact you if a problem arises with your order. Additionally, if you purchase a Hug product, your personal information may be used to obtain a credit report, if necessary. Such information is required to complete a purchase.
We may ask you for and collect personal information at other times, including when you enter a sweepstakes or contest; when you participate in a promotion or marketing campaign sponsored by Hug or one of our business partners; when you complete surveys; when you participate in a user forum or blog hosted by Hug or one of our business partners. We use the information you provide to help us design and build better products, to customize your shopping experience, and to provide advice and purchase recommendations and for other purposes consistent with this statement. Hug may also match user information with third party data to help us better understand our customers.
Hug also conducts research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us when making a purchase, during a promotion, from surveys and from our server log files. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual. Hug may share this aggregated data with our business partners.
In addition, our web server logs collect the domain names and certain related data of visitors to our website. This information is aggregated to measure number of visits, average time spent on a Hug website, pages viewed and website usage information. We use this information to measure the use of our site; to improve the content of our site; and to also provide tailored advertisements. Aggregated information is not used in such a form that would enable direct connection of any personal information to our visitors.
Finally, we may also ask for your personal information when you express an interest in employment opportunities at Hug.

Information collection related
When you are on the Hug website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Hug and its subsidiaries and related companies. Additionally, if you purchase a Hug product, your personal information may be collected by a third party company working with Hug. Hug may also contract with third party companies to perform services for Hug on its website that require these companies to collect website user information (e. G. Hosting a website sweepstakes, promotion or survey, selling software downloads or delivering Hug advertisements).
In addition, Hug’s website may allow third parties to provide products and services directly to Hug customers. Such relationships are often designated with a “provided by” or “powered by” company logo or other similarly worded designation. If you choose to purchase a product or service from such a third party, that party will collect your information and share it with Hug. You may review the privacy practices of the third party either by clicking the link on the bottom of the page or by clicking on the “provided by company” logo, which will take you to their website.
Sharing of information
In addition, Hug shares the information you provide with Hug subsidiaries and related companies. If you purchase a Hug product, your personal information is shared with the service provider/carrier with whom you subscribe. Additionally, if you express an interest in a product requiring a particular type of service, Hug may share your personal information with your local service provider in order to determine whether such service is available in your area.
Hug may share your personal information with third-party business partners so that they may provide services to Hug that are consistent with the terms of this policy, and this website (e. G. Order processing and delivery, database management, sending targeted advertisements, software sales, and conducting sweepstakes and other promotions on behalf of Hug). Hug takes great pride in utilising only reputable business partners. Hug may also, on occasion, provide personal information to third-party businesses as part of a specific product, service, or promotion.
Hug shares website usage information about visitors to our website who have received a targeted promotional campaign with reputable third-party advertising companies for the purpose of targeting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics. For this purpose, we and our third-party advertising companies note some of the pages you visit on our website through the use of pixel tags. The information collected by our third-party advertising companies through the use of these pixel tags is not personally identifiable.
When you place an order or provide personal information, we use certain security measures, such as encryption, where appropriate. Encryption scrambles the information in your purchase, including your credit card number, so this information can only be viewed by Hug. Hug uses secure socket layer (ssl) encryption technology, where appropriate, for internet-based transactions.
However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect your personal information, Hug cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information you provide to us or from our website and therefore you use our site at your own risk.
Websites operated by or on behalf of Hug and its worldwide affiliated companies and subsidiaries are intended for use by persons aged at least 13 and over. Hug does not seek to collect information about children under the age of 13. No information should be submitted to or posted on Hug’s websites by users under 13 years of age.
If a child under the age of 13 submits personal information to Hug’s websites, we delete the information as soon as we discover it was provided by a child under 13 years of age and do not use it for any purpose. Hug encourages parents to take an active role in their children’s use of the internet and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves over the internet.
