Information Collection and Use
Personal Information We Collect
When you interact with us, we collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide. For example, when you create an account with us, update your account data on our Website, or otherwise use certain aspects of our Service, we may ask you to provide information such as your name, e-mail address, profile photo, and/or location (e.g., city and state).
We also collect Personal Information when you register to join the Service (or choose to refresh your account data) by logging into an account that you already have with a third party social networking platform (“SNP”) via our Service. For example, our Service allows you to create an account and login to the Service using your Facebook account credentials through Facebook Connect. If you create a user account by logging into the SNP via the Service, you are using the Personal Information you have already provided to the SNP (such as your “real” name, e-mail address, and other information you make available via the SNP) to create your account on our Service. Accordingly, if you use Facebook Connect to join the Service, you are allowing us to access the Personal Information in your Facebook account pursuant to Facebook’s terms and conditions governing your use of the Service via Facebook. The information we receive from an SNP may depend on the privacy settings you have with the SNP, so please check the SNP’s privacy and data practices.
Our Use of Your Personal Information
We mainly use your Personal Information, either alone or in combination with other information, so that we can provide, enhance and personalize our Service and related content, products, and marketing efforts.
The following are examples of a variety of ways that we may use your Personal Information. We may use your Personal Information:
- to provide you with the best user experience possible;
- to respond to your questions and comments;
- to communicate with you regarding Service updates, offers, and promotions;
- to help us develop, customize, deliver, support and improve our Service, content, and advertising;
- to help authenticate any account you create with us;
- to protect the rights or property of Hombop Holdings or our users, and prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities;
- to help you find your friends (such as your Facebook friends) on the Service, and to help other users find you on the Service;
- to protect the security of our Service and business;
- for our internal purposes (such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve our products, services, and communications); and
- otherwise, as disclosed to you at the point of collection.
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive communications from us, please follow any unsubscribe instructions that may be provided in our communications to you, or update your user preferences by logging into your user account on the Website. Please note that we may use your Personal Information to contact you with important notifications, such as notices with respect to safety, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies; you may not opt out of these notifications. Please also note that we may continue to use your Personal Information for statistical or other purposes as we see fit after you unsubscribe from any communications and/or terminate your use of the Service.
We may share your Personal Information (such as addresses, credit card information, and phone numbers) along with your other order information with merchants, payment processors, couriers, delivery personnel and other third party vendors to fulfill your orders on our Service and for analytics, and with merchants for their additional uses in accordance with their terms of service and privacy policies. When we share your address with merchants to fulfill your orders on our Service, we may use the address you provided as both your “shipping address” and “billing address” with applicable merchants in order to fulfill orders.
When you make a purchase from the Homebop.com website or the Homebop mobile app, you must enroll and provide a payment card number. To be eligible, the payment card must be a credit or debit card account number for a US bank branded American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa, and must be in good standing. In order to protect your data, and to facilitate efficient purchases as well as refund handling, we will make the purchases with the designated merchants on your behalf using a different card number. Once the purchase is confirmed we will bill that purchase to your designated payment card account.
Collection and Use of Non-Identifying Information
We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose information in a form that does not personally identify you (“Non-Identifying Information“) for any purpose. Non-Identifying Information can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We and/or our third party service providers obtain Non-Identifying Information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your Personal Information. We and/or our third party service providers also automatically collect certain Non-Identifying Information from you when you access our Service.
Certain Non-Identifying Information about you would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying information. We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users or sources to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of our products and services, and to analyze and understand how our products and services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically. After you terminate your use of the Service, we may continue to use your Non-Identifying Information for statistical purposes or other purposes as we see fit. Please note, we cannot guarantee that Non-Identifying Information will not identify you as we cannot guarantee that others with access to Non-Identifying Information may not have knowledge sufficient to identify you.

We use this information for a variety of purposes, including analyzing and enhancing our products and services, and to help personalize our Service for you. We do not treat this information as Personal Information (except to the extent required by local law), although if we combine it with the Personal Information you provide, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. We and our third-party service providers may automatically collect Non-Identifying Information using various methods, including, without limitation, cookies and application identifiers.
