Hagadone Directories Privacy Policy

It is of the utmost importance for us at Hagadone Directories to ensure that this, and every subsequent visit you make to our website, is with complete peace of mind. You have every right to trust and to expect confidentiality, and it is our duty to respect this right.

Your privacy is our priority. As such, we believe you should have an unrestricted view into how we collect data about the people who visit our site - yourself included - and what we do with that data.

How We Use Information

Every time you visit BlackPhoneBook.com, you may be providing some, even all, of the following information:

  • Anonymous information
  • Aggregate Data
  • Any personally identifiable information you knowingly provide us

If you harbor any concerns about Hagadone Directories selling any personally identifiable information to any telemarketing, direct marketing or commercial mass email companies, agents or representatives, don't. Because we won't. Ever.

Okay, except if you tell us it's okay to do so. Here are the only instances Hagadone Directories could maybe, perhaps, possibly send personally identifiable information to other companies or people:

  • You have given Hagadone Directories your explicit permission to share this information
  • Hagadone Directories needs to share the information to provide a product or service you requested
  • If Hagadone Directories believes, in good faith, that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or other legal process
  • And the biggy! If Hagadone Directories finds that your actions on the BlackPhoneBook.com website violates the Hagadone Directories Terms of Use or any of BlackPhoneBook.com's usage guidelines for specific products or services.

How We Collect Anonymous and Aggregate Data

It works like this: the more we know about your visit to BlackPhoneBook.com, the more you benefit.

That is why we collect information. Not about you personally, because that would be less than honest, but about what you did while visiting our website.

“So how do I benefit from this?” you ask?

Good question. It's what we do with this information that matters. For instance, it provides BlackPhoneBook.com with valuable feedback which we use to improve both our site and our services. One good example: we can inform Hagadone Directories advertisers how many people saw or clicked on their ads - plus, how many people saw or clicked on ads in different sections of our website.

We also monitor information so that we can produce aggregate reports for internal use - and for use by third parties, including Hagadone Directories advertisers. Aggregate reports are mostly statistical and deal with people behavior on the website, not individual behavior.

From time to time we may release information about aggregate user characteristics. But - and this is a big but - we do not include any personally identifiable information about you or your individual online usage patterns. Rest assured.

How We Use Cookies

Hagadone Directories collects information about your site usage through cookies (the computer variety!) and through our server log files, including IP Addresses. Importantly, Hagadone Directories does not link IP Addresses to any personally identifiable information.

Cookies tell us nothing about you personally, unless of course you elect to give us additional information about yourself.

You can always disable the cookie function if you so choose. However, the BlackPhoneBook.com website will still be viewable, even though you may lose the ability to use some of its advanced features.

Some of the banner and display ads on BlackPhoneBook.com are provided by third party ad servers. These ads may also contain cookies. Information collected through cookies associated with third party ads are collected by the third party and we do not always have access to this information. It is our policy, however, to only use reputable third parties to serve the advertisements that are placed within our site.

How We Treat Personally Identifiable Data

If you should (hopefully!) order any product(s) from BlackPhoneBook.com, we will collect personally identifiable data from you in order to process the transaction and to provide you with the support and tools required to maintain and modify your directory listings.

Hagadone Directories also collects personally identifiable data from you when you request corrections to, or deletions of, directory listings in order to process your request.

We also collect personally identifiable data in other situations where you knowingly provide us with such information. For example, when you communicate with our Account Executive team.

Should you ever need to, you can change or correct information about yourself and your account by contacting us.

How We Handle Your Security

Hagadone Directories understands how important it is to protect you and your information. We take security seriously, online and offline. All sensitive information, including credit card details, is encrypted using the very latest server technology.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

From time to time Hagadone Directories may amend this Policy.

Should we at any stage make substantial changes in the way we use your personal information, we will alert you by posting a prominent announcement on our website homepage.

We invite you to return as often as possible to check for any such announcement or just because you enjoy using BlackPhoneBook.com. Or for any reason you may have, we really don't mind!

How We Handle Your Questions or Suggestions

Against the grain, we know, but Hagadone Directories actually will reply to you personally with any questions, suggestions, criticisms or unrestrained joy you may experience with this Privacy Policy. Don't be shy! Contact us.
