Information Collected by HOM
HOM may collect two types of information about users: personal information (such as name and e-mail address) and aggregate information (such as information about how many users log on to our sites daily). HOM may collect any information about you that you make available to us through your use of our website, the internet, or otherwise.
Personal information is collected when users voluntarily register for membership services. Personal information includes e-mail addresses, user registration data, passwords, external homepages, gender, birth date, interests, hobbies, travel preferences, and any other user-specific data. We may also receive personal usage and demographic information from our third-party partners, and we also collect e-mail addresses from users who send us support mail or request technical or other help. This information enables HOM to improve its sites to make your online visits more productive and enjoyable. Our site’s registration form requires users to, along with other information, give us a valid e-mail address. We may use your e-mail addresses from the registration form to inform you of the status of, new membership benefits and features, to let you know of urgent problems on our site, and to present special members-only opportunities to buy products and services that are appropriate to the interests of our community.
One method of collecting aggregate information about your activities online (such as the pages you HOM most frequently or the search terms you enter), and information volunteered by you (such as survey or registration information), is by tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. The computers that deliver the web pages to you automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from one of our sites, our servers log your IP address. HOM sites record IP addresses for system administration and provide aggregate data to advertisers about the volume of use on our sites. We also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Also, your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.
Sharing Data with Third Parties
HOM does not share your details with the third-parties. Only aggregated, anonymous data is periodically shared that might help us improve the website.
