We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information and financial information. This
information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user. In order for this website to enhance its ability to tailor the site to an individual’s preference, we analyze information about the purchasing habits of users with similar information from our site, to create a personalized user profile and to suggest items to you that you might be interested in.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We will use the personal information you provide to our website to fulfil specific purposes. For example, personal information will be used to send an e-newsletter or fulfil a product order. In addition, we may send you e-mail notices about products, services, companies and events that we think might interest you.

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to our webmaster. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off- line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
The Hub Publishers will take reasonable steps to protect the security and integrity of all personal information provided to The Hub Publishers website. However, due to the inherent nature of the internet as an open global communications vehicle, The Hub Publishers cannot guarantee that this information will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. If you are requested to send us any sensitive personal information, such as your credit card number or password, in an e-mail or into a website or otherwise, and you are uncertain whether such request is authorized by us, please do not hesitate to ask us by sending an e-mail to our privacy officer at webmaster.
In the event that The Hub Publishers or substantially all of its assets are acquired by one or more third parties as a result of a merger, sale, consolidation or liquidation, customer personal information may be one of the transferred assets.
