Privacy Policy

Last Updated: January 10, 2015   Version 1.2

HobJoy knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This Policy describes our Privacy Policy. By visiting HobJoy, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

If you do not agree with the practices described in this Privacy Policy, please do not provide us with your personal information or interact with HobJoy.


What The Privacy Policy Covers (and Doesn't)

This Privacy Policy covers HobJoy and Impact Ventures, LLC (“HobJoy, “We”, “Us”, “Ours”). It covers all HobJoy “Sites” (, including any mobile, touch, other versions or sections, social networking sites, or other owned sites of Impact Ventures, LLC that we have now or may have in the future).  It also covers all HobJoy “Services” (Collectively, all forms of interactive services offered for sale by HobJoy, including but not limited to third-party voucher deals and direct sales).

It explains how HobJoy will use your information and it applies to all who use HobJoy Sites and/or Services.

This Privacy Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information by HobJoy and its Sites.  Other websites that may be accessible through links from our Sites may have their own privacy policies and different methods of data collection, types of personal information collected, and usage of that information.  We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of those websites prior to providing them with information or taking advantage of our Services.


Data Collection

HobJoy collects information when you interact with our Sites.   You can browse our Sites without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.  This information is associated to your account only when you create an account.  When you create an account, you are not anonymous to us. 

We, like many websites, may set and access session-based and persistent "cookies" to connect your site activity with the information we know about you.  Also, we may obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses HobJoy or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of HobJoy on other websites.  We also may use pixel tags, web beacons, local shared objects, files, tools, and programs to monitor actions on our Sites, keep records, store preferences, improve our advertising and Services, and collect personal information.  HobJoy also has enabled the Demographic and Interest and enhanced link attribution reporting tools in Google Analytics Features. 

Data is collected through actions including, but not limited to the following examples:


Personal Information Collected

Personal information is any information about you that is personally identifiable (such as your name, address, e-mail, or phone number), and that is not commonly publicly available.  The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve the shopping experience at HobJoy.  This information is stored on our servers.

Information You Give Us

We may receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way.  For some applications, you may be able to choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, personalizing your experience, improving our store, and communicating with you.  The types of information we collect may include:

Information We Collect

We may collect, receive, store, and analyze certain types of information whenever you interact with us.   For example, information we collect may include:

E-mail Communications

To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from HobJoy if your computer supports such capabilities. We may also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your account settings.  Even if you opt-out of receiving e-mail messages from us, we may still contact you via e-mail for administrative and transactional purposes and notices of updates to policies.

When you send e-mail communications (or other communications) to us, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, and improve our services.

Information from Other Sources

We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.  For example, this information may include:



Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are like serial numbers that we may transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser. Among other things, they enable our systems to recognize your browser to provide personalized advertisements on our website and other websites and allow storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of HobJoy's essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.


Information Usage

Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with access to our Sites and Services.  HobJoy processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and any other applicable Service-specific privacy notice.   We retain the right to review our data collection, storage, and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store, and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services.  We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but it is incumbent upon you to update and/or correct your personal information whenever necessary.

You agree that HobJoy may use the personal information for the purposes of:


Information Sharing

We do not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or companies except as outlined in this Privacy Policy or with your permission.

Information Security


Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites

Our site may include third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.

These third-party websites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on our website directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.

HobJoy also may display personalized third-party advertising based on personal information about customers, such as purchases on HobJoy or use of payment services on other websites.  Although HobJoy does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad (for example, users in the southern United States who bought or browsed needlework products).
