This document describes the privacy practices for Hard Reset. It makes it clear how Hard Reset treats personal information that Hard Reset collects and receives, including information related to your past use of Hard Reset sites and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.
This policy makes clear that Hard Reset could merge with or be acquired by another entity. Should this occur, you should expect that Hard Reset would share some or all of your information with the other entity.
How We Collect Information
Hard Reset collects personal information when you visit Hard Reset property pages or the pages of Hard Reset partners, and when you submit user information to a Hard Reset site or you use Hard Reset products or services. Hard Reset may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
Information We Collect Via Log Files and Cookies
While a user is on a Hard Reset property, we automatically track certain information through log files and, on some pages, through cookies. This information includes a user’s most recent visit, the URL they came from, the URL they visit next, the browser they are using, and their IP address.
Information We Collect Via User Submission
We may ask users for personal information when they:
- Register with Hard Reset;
- enter a sweepstakes, contest, or promotion, either sponsored by us or one of our business partners;
- take one of our polls or fill out a marketing survey;
- sign up for and/or use Hard Reset services; or
- ask to receive any of our newsletters.
When providing Hard Reset with information, you may be asked for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, and zip/postal code. Once you register with Hard Reset and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.
How We Use the Information We Collect:
- to better understand the demographics, interests and behaviour of our collective audience;
- to deliver advertisements and promotions targeted to our users’ interests;
- to deliver prizes;
- to deliver promotional information from Hard Reset or its sponsors, provided the user opted in for these notifications.
