How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which
you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide
information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features,
such as newsletters or when you make a purchase.
You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards
and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, Hughmark.co.uk also
collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent
to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie
technology to recognise you and hold information from your visit.
Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having
to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a
particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also
gather information through other means.
In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your
browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of
the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to
customise the site’s features according to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect
Like other web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more
individualised content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many
ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar
information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which
pages are visited most or what features are most attractive).
Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners.
Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow
anyone to identify you individually.

you about your registration and customisation preferences; our Terms of Service and privacy

purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-
commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications
with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our web
hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as
permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell,
buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user
information may be among the transferred assets.
We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we
believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts
you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or
necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
