2. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW IT IS USED

You make the decision whether or not to proceed with any activity that requests personally identifiable information, but please be aware that if you choose not to provide the information requested, you may not be able to complete certain transactions with US.

Sometimes, such as when you register for a service or log in to a customer extranet site, order a product or make other requests or inquiries, we will ask for specific information about you in order to provide that product or service to you, or respond to your requests or inquiries. We may collect certain personally identifiable information such as contact information, including name, e-mail address, work and home telephone numbers and a physical postal address. We may also collect information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, past experience with Home Move Box Ltd products and services, detailed contact preferences or other personally identifiable information. We may use any information that we collect, including personally identifiable information, to tailor subsequent communications to you, including marketing and promotional communications, to administer and operate the Website and our business and to provide and continually improve Home Move Box Ltd offerings. We may also share information that we collect, including personally identifiable information, with our affiliated companies or other third parties in order to market Home Move Box Ltd products and/or services to you.

We do, however, provide our users a choice as to whether or not they would like to receive marketing or promotional communications. Users may from time to time receive up-to-date information on products and services via our e-mail newsletter, etc. Users may opt-out at any time from receiving these communications. Please see Section 3, Choice.
We may also periodically conduct business and individual user surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve our products and services. Participation in such surveys is completely voluntary and you, therefore, have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

Data you submit online may also be combined with other information you provide through other means of communication, such as postal mail.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring pages, date/time stamp and click stream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the Website, to track users’ movements around the Website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

Our Website includes social media features, such as the Facebook “Like” button Widgets and the “Share” button. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Website, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

We provide online training services to some clients and our employees through our intranet training portal.

A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES: Technologies such as: cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts may be used on the Website by Home Move Box Ltd and our marketing and analytics partners. These technologies are used for operation of the Website or service that you request as a user of the Website, such as to remember text you may have entered when you navigate back to the page in the same session. We also use technologies to provide optional features and functionality that you may access on the Website.

For example, a cookie can help us identify whether you have downloaded software in the past so that you won’t have to download it again. We use tracking technologies to customize and personalise the Website based on preferences you may have expressed either directly by selecting an option or setting or indirectly by your prior use. We also use tracking technologies that collect information about how you use the Website to analyse and optimize the performance of the Website in order to give you a better user experience. In some cases, particularly with respect to measuring and analysing performance of the Website, tracking technologies may be placed by our third party service providers. We and our third-party marketing and analytics providers may use beacons to help better manage content on the Website. Beacons also may be used to understand and monitor online movements of users so that we may better understand and improve their experiences on the Website.

We do not partner with third party ad networks to either display our advertising on our Websites, but we partner third parties to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partners use cookies, scripts, tags and web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on this and other websites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by emailing it@homemovebox.co.uk. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising, which means that you will continue to receive generic ads.

When you click on a link to an external website or third party resource (including embedded widgets similar those provided by Facebook and Twitter), the third party may place a cookie from its own site. Home Move Box Ltd does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third party website for more information about these cookies.
