MIGHTY HURRICANE PRIVACY STATEMENT
Last Updated: June 12, 2018
Mighty Hurricane Holdings, Inc. (“Mighty Hurricane,” “we,” “our”) is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect your privacy. This Privacy Statement applies to your interaction with our website, which is located at https://alynedtogether.us (“website”), and describes how we collect, process, use, and disclose your personal information. For purposes of this Privacy Statement, “personal information” means information from or about you that identifies you directly and information that is associated with you and thus could potentially identify you, including when combined with other information from or about you.
Mighty Hurricane is a U.S.-based e-commerce company. As a result, personal information that we collect and personal information that we receive from consumers may be transferred to our U.S. offices to permit us to comply with our legal and contractual obligations, to provide information and services to prospective and current consumers, and to perform related business services. In addition, we may transfer personal information to third-party service providers and business partners, in the U.S. and in other countries, to the extent necessary to support Mighty Hurricane’s business activities. Thus, personal information that we collect may be transferred to and stored on servers located in the United States and in countries different from the country in which that information was initially collected. Similarly, personal information may be accessed by Mighty Hurricane and its third-party service providers and business partners from countries other than the ones in which the personal information is stored.
Except to the extent that a third party is providing services on our behalf, this Privacy Statement does not apply to the websites or practices of third parties to which the website may link, or the practices of Mighty Hurricane’s subsidiaries or other affiliates. Additionally, we utilize third party providers for payment processing and order fulfillment to process any purchases made on our website. Information on the steps those providers and their affiliates take to protect your privacy while performing these activities is available on their respective websites, which can be accessed using the following links:
Collection and Use Information

Information About Payments
If you transact business with us, for example by purchasing our products, we collect information about the transactions. The information we collect includes your name, telephone number, e-mail address, discount code, billing information, shipping information, and other related information. Although, as described above, we utilize third-party providers for payment processing and order fulfillment to process any purchases made on our website, we may retain limited information in order to respond to fulfillment questions or inquiries, communicate with you about your account, and for other business purposes.
If you contact us via telephone, e-mail, fax, our website, social media, or in any other way, we may retain the communication and the information it contains. This information may be used to respond to your inquiry, to notify you, with your consent, of Mighty Hurricane-related opportunities, for marketing purposes, or for other business purposes. If you do not wish to receive notifications about Mighty Hurricane-related opportunities, or otherwise want to restrict the use of information you provide to us, please unsubscribe from our marketing communications, e-mail us or write to us at the address listed below.
Information We Receive From Other Sources
We may receive information about you from other sources such as individuals who purchase products on your behalf, vendors, service providers, and other third parties. This may include, but is not limited to, information from co-marketing providers, product referrals, or other interactions. We also may combine the information we collect directly from you on our website with publicly available information and records from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, tailor our content to you, and offer you, with your consent, opportunities that may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, please unsubscribe from our marketing communications, send us an e-mail or write to us at the address listed below.
Information You Provide About Others
If you make a purchase and request that it be shipped to another person, you confirm and acknowledge that we may collect the name, telephone number, e-mail address, and shipping information of the recipient. We use this information to help facilitate product fulfillment and for other legitimate business purposes.
We also may receive information about you from third-party social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, or other platforms. When you interact with the website through a third-party social platform, you allow the platform to collect information about your interaction with the website and you allow us to access or collect information made available by the platform in accordance with its Privacy Statement. This information may be available from your third-party social platform profile or account, or from cookies placed on your browser by the third-party platform.
Information Collected by Automated Means
We and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, and eTags (collectively, "Tracking Technologies"), that automatically collect and store certain information whenever you visit or interact with the website, view or click on advertisements, or visit our social media pages. This includes log data that automatically records information about your visit, such as your browser type, operating system, the URL of the page that referred you, the different actions you performed, and the IP address you used to access pages on the website. We use this information to administer the website, analyze trends, gather information about visitor movements, help diagnose potential problems with our server, investigate actual or potential security incidents, and ensure that the website is working properly. In addition, and for the same reasons, we may collect information about your browsing behavior, such as the date and time you visit the website, the areas or pages of the website that you visit, the amount of time you spend viewing the website, the number of times you return to the website, and other clickstream data.
We may assign your device one or more cookies to facilitate access to our website and to personalize your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer or mobile device for record keeping purposes. A flash cookie is similar to a cookie, but it can store more complex data in order to remember settings, preferences, and usage. Cookies can be either session cookies or persistent cookies. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your devices until you delete them) to: (1) allow you to use the website without having to re-enter your user name and password; (2) enhance or personalize your website usage; (3) monitor website usage; (4) manage the website; and (5) improve the website and our products and services. These cookies may be delivered by us or by third parties.
We also may use web beacons on the website, in our e-mails and in our advertisements on other websites. Web beacons are tiny graphic images that are used to collect information about your website visit, such as the pages you view and the features you use, as well as information about whether you open and/or act upon one of our e-mails or advertisements. We may also collect the URL of the website you visited immediately before coming to the website. Web beacons help us analyze our website visitors' behavior and measure the effectiveness of the website and our advertising. We may combine the non-personal information we collect through cookies and web beacons with other information we have collected from you. We also may work with service providers that help us track, collect and analyze this information.
We may work with third-party advertising companies that use tracking technologies to serve our advertisements across the Internet. These companies may collect anonymous information about your visits to our website and other websites and your interaction with our advertising and other communications. Other companies may also use such companies to advertise on our website. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use.
Our website as well as the websites of our third-party service providers, interface with social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter and may use social media plugins (such as the Facebook "Like" button) to facilitate social media functions. When you visit our website, the operator of a social media plugin may set cookies or other tracking technology on your browser, enabling that social media operator to recognize users who visit our website. If you are logged into a social media website while browsing on our website, the social media plugins may allow the social media website to receive information about your visit-including the pages that you viewed-and connect the visit to your personal information. When you use social media plugins to log in to the applicable social media service, we may receive certain information that you post on that service in accordance with the Privacy Statement of that service and the privacy settings that are applicable to your account. This allows us to share information about your activities on our website with other users of their social media website. For example, Facebook social media plugins allow Facebook to show your Likes and comments on our website to your Facebook friends. Your use of social media plugins is subject to each social media website's Privacy Statement, so we encourage you to use care and thoughtfully read the Privacy Statement of each social media website that you use. We have no control over the information that social media websites or plugins collect, store, or use. Before connecting to our website from a social media website or using a social media plugin on our website, please be certain that you understand the social media website's Privacy Statement and how it may gather information about your use of our website.
