Your privacy is important to Hop Till You Drop Ltd. This statement discloses the information practices for Hop Till You Drop Ltd Web sites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.
Hop Till You Drop Ltd abides by the Safe Harbour framework as set forth by the United States Department Of Commerce regarding the collection, use and retention of information collected from the European Union by a Web site on the hoptiludrop.co.uk domain.
In general, you can visit hoptiludrop.co.uk on the Internet without telling us who you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we or our partners may need information from you.
You may choose to give us personal information in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us information, such as your name and address or e-mail id, to correspond with you, to process an order, or to provide you with a subscription. You may give us your credit card details to buy something from us or a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at Hop Till You Drop Ltd that you wish to be considered for. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes.

In some cases, specific Hop Till You Drop Ltd Web sites may contain other notices about their use and the information practices applicable to those sites.
Hop Till You Drop Ltd is a global organization, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems that cross borders.
Our privacy practices are designed to provide protection for your personal information, all over the world.
We may share your personal information within Hop Till You Drop Ltd and transfer it to countries in the world where we do business.
Some countries may provide less legal protection for your information. In such countries Hop Till You Drop Ltd will still handle information in the manner we describe here.
We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its quality. We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality.
From time to time we may supplement information you give us via a Hop Till You Drop Ltd Web site with information from other sources, such as information validating your address or other available information about businesses. This is to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect and to help us provide a better service.
In some cases Hop Till You Drop Ltd uses suppliers to collect, use, analyse and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is Hop Till You Drop Ltd’s practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with Hop Till You Drop Ltd’s policies.
Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, Hop Till You Drop Ltd decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganise businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or receiving it from sellers. It is Hop Till You Drop Ltd’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
We sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to our Web sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on Hop Till You Drop Ltd Web sites, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” Hop Till You Drop Ltd or others on Hop Till You Drop Ltd’s behalf may use this data to analyse trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.
Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information such as clickstream data. This information is used and analysed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. The information is not reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner, you can disable your cookies.
Some Hop Till You Drop Ltd Web sites also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide enhanced customer service. These technologies may be in use on a number of pages across Hop Till You Drop Ltd’s Web sites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our suppliers. These Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don’t want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.
Certain Web transactions may also involve you calling us or our calling you. Please be aware that it is Hop Till You Drop Ltd’s general practice to monitor and in some cases record such calls for staff training or quality assurance purposes.
Certain companies help us deliver interactive online advertising such as banner ads. These companies may collect and use information about customers to help us better understand the offers, promotions, and types of advertising that are most appealing to our customers. After it is collected the information is aggregated so it is not identifiable to a specific individual. If, however, you would prefer that these companies do not collect such information, please visit www.networkadvertising.org and follow the ‘opt-out’ instructions.
On occasion, we may personalize and customise Web sites for certain visitors. If you visit one of these sites, you may find it customised with references to products and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you, based on your previous interactions with Hop Till You Drop Ltd and information you have provided to us. While you are visiting these Web sites, we may collect information about your visit to better tailor the site to your interests. An invitation to visit one of these Web sites is usually presented as a personalised URL in an email, a notice on a Web site registration page, or as a response to your logging on to a certain Web site.
If you choose to visit one of these Web sites, you are agreeing to let Hop Till You Drop Ltd collect information about your visits and also to its association with other information about you and your relationship with Hop Till You Drop Ltd. If you do not wish your information to be used in this way, do not accept the invitation to visit these sites.
Please be aware that in certain circumstances, it is possible that personal information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders.
