Highland Hiker Policies
Privacy matters. As a visitor to Highlandhiker.com, you don't have to worry about your privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for our Web site.
Non-Personal Information That We Collect
Personal Information That We Collect
We may collect your personally identifiable information, such as your name, shipping address, billing address, e-mail address, phone number and credit card number, in the course of processing your order, or when we otherwise communicate with you. For example, through the order forms on our Site, we collect personally identifiable information necessary for shipping products that you purchase. We also may collect your financial information (like your credit card number and billing address) and your contact information (like your e-mail address, phone number and shipping address). Financial information that is collected is used to bill you for products that you request. Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about our company to you. We use your shipping address to ship your products to you and to send catalogs and other mailings to you. We use your billing address, if different than your shipping address, to verify your billing information. We never share our customer names or addresses, e-mail addresses, or other personally identifiable information, other than to the limited extent described in the "Consenting to Uses of Your Information" section below. If you do not wish to receive catalogs or other mailings from us, please see the "How to remove your name from our mailing, sharing or e-mail list" section below.
Information From Other Sources
Examples of information we receive from other sources include updated delivery and address information from our carriers or other third parties, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase or catalog more easily.
Consenting To Uses Of Your Information
We only collect your personally identifiable information when you voluntarily submit it for the purposes of purchasing or ordering a product, or when you otherwise contact us online, in our stores, by telephone, or by mail. By initiating an order or other communication with us, you are consenting to our collection and use of your personal information for that specified purpose. If you do consent to a use of your information beyond that required to fulfill the purpose for which your information was collected, you may withdraw that consent by contacting Highland Hiker, Inc. We do not disclose your personal information to other companies, persons or agencies, except for the purposes described below:
Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform certain services and functions on our behalf. Examples include operating and maintaining our Site, taking orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing consultation and assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These companies have access to personal information needed to perform their services or functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Shopping At Our Site
Highland Hiker, Inc. works to protect your personal information by using security standards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, whether that information is collected and/or stored online or offline. We make every reasonable and appropriate effort to safeguard such information from loss, theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, modification, or destruction. Specifically, we work to protect the security of your online order by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts the information that you transmit from your computer to the Highland Hiker web site. If you are using a FireFox browser, you can check the security of your connection by looking at the lower right-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. For Internet Explorer, check the far right end of the address bar. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active.
Some versions of browsers and some firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. If you are unable to connect to a secure server or cannot determine that you have a secure connection, please place your order by telephone by calling us at 1-828-526-5298.
