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

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

We may share customer information only as described below:
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.
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).
HobJoy gives you access to information about your account and your interactions with HobJoy for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating or deleting that information. That information includes:
This site is designed and intended for adults. HobJoy does not sell products for purchase by children under the age of 18, and such use is prohibited.

For any major or significant changes which require your explicit consent, we will send a notice to the primary e-mail address listed on your account.
