What Types of Information Does Hing Wa Lee Jewelers Collect From Me?

Hing Wa Lee Jewelers will collect the personal information you provide when you register, take a survey, sign up for notifications, register for a sweepstakes or giveaway, email us or otherwise send us your information.  This information may include your name, email address and other information that can be used to identify you.  You can use some of the Services without providing any personal information but some features may not be available.

Each time you use the Services, Hing Wa Lee Jewelers also collects other, non-personal information from you, such as your browser type, the URL of the previous web site you visited, your ISP, operating system, and your IP Address.  If you access the Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device or other transactional information for that device.  If you receive email from us, we will track related information such as if an email is opened and whether you click on an ad or offer in the email.  In addition, like the operators of most web sites, Hing Wa Lee Jewelers uses analytic and reporting technologies to record information such as Internet domain and host names, Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser software and operating system types, Hing Wa Lee Jewelers patterns, and the dates and times that the Properties and the other Services are accessed.

If you log in via a third party service like Facebook or Google, we will access the information described in the request for authorization.  You should review your privacy settings with these third party services to be sure you are only sharing information you wish to share.

What About Cookies?

In addition, Hing Wa Lee Jewelers uses “cookies,” a small data string our server writes to your computer, and other tracking technology to help us manage and track your interaction with the Services.

Third parties whose products or services are accessible or advertised via the Services may also use cookies, and we advise you to check their privacy policies for information about their cookies and other privacy practices.

Do Third Parties Gather My Information?

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Properties. These companies may use non-personal information (i.e., not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to the Properties and other online properties (e.g., Web sites, mobile sites and apps) in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We may also permit third parties to gather non-personal information about our users and to use and share that information with other companies to help them provide relevant advertising on and off our Properties.

In addition, like millions of other websites, we use analytics services provided by third parties such as Google and Flurry.  These companies use cookies and other tracking mechanisms to gather data about how users use our Properties. This information will be transmitted to and stored by our analytics providers, who will use this information for purposes such as evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to activity on our Properties and internet usage.  These providers may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on their behalf.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser and opt out of certain other forms of tracking.   If you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our Properties. By using our Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by our third parties analytics provisions as described above.
