This site is hosted by Yahoo! Store. Yahoo! hosts the store pages, ordering system, and order data. Yahoo! automatically collects order information but may only use this information in the aggregate. If you accessed this store through Yahoo! Shopping, Yahoo! also automatically collects information about your shopping experience. Please see the Yahoo!

Privacy Policy Statement

The privacy of those who visit our Web site is of primary concern to PriceHot.com. We adhere to the highest ethical standards of the industry. We automatically gather some data from everyone who visits our site, while other information is obtained at the discretion of the individual. Our sole purpose in doing this is to enhance the experience of individual shoppers on PriceHot.com (for example, to tailor special offers to our users or to survey our users about their shopping experience). Except as noted in the next sentence, none of this information is shared with outside parties other than companies we employ to perform functions on our behalf, to whom limited data is given as is necessary in order to complete a shopping transaction or to maintain our relationship with you, such as to customize our communications with you, if you elect to receive communications. In addition, you may elect to receive communications and special offers from other companies we have selected based upon the goods and services they provide, in which case we will share your contact information with these companies if you direct us to do so. What information is gathered, how it is obtained and what it is used for is explained below. If you have any questions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us at 510.780.1000 or email us.

Visit Information

  • Like many other Internet companies, PriceHot.com automatically tracks the usage of our Web site. We profile Web site usage by tracking the PriceHot.com pages viewed, the previous and following sites visited, the browser used and the computer's address. This information is used to analyze trends, track use, and optimize site administration.

Registration Information

  • In order to take advantage of member services, a user has a option to complete the registration form. During registration, users are required to give certain contact information (such as name, email address) and create a password. This information is used to contact users about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. Contact information (such as name, email and/or mailing address) also will be shared with other PriceHot.com's family organizations and companies if you choose to receive communications and special offers from these companies. It is optional for users to provide demographic information (such as gender and age) and preferences (such as interests). However, they are encouraged to do so in order that we can provide them a more personalized experience on our site.

Secured Purchase Information

  • When a credit card order is placed on PriceHot.com, the customer's name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number and credit card number and expiration date are gathered. This is used to verify payment authorization, process your order, personalize your shopping experience, inform you of deliveries, deliver the merchandise to the proper destination and generate statistics. PriceHot.com takes numerous precautions to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, the information is protected both online and offline.
  • For all purchase information, PriceHot.com uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) underneath HTTP, providing an encrypted channel and server authentication, so that all such information is transmitted through a secured server connection. Before your order is processed online, your browser will make a confirmed identification that the transmission of all data is being made between your computer and with PriceHot.com. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottoms of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unˇVlocked or open, when you are just "surfing." You can learn more about SSL at www.SSL.com.
  • While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also take several steps to protect user information offline. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a Customer Service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use passwordˇVprotected screensavers when they leave their desks. When they return, they must reˇVenter their password to regain access to user information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept upˇVtoˇVdate on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
  • If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send can email us or call us at 510.780.1000
