Personal Information We Collect
We only collect personal information that you voluntarily provide us, except as otherwise described below. We will not sell or rent your personal information to any third party.
We may collect the following personal information from you only if you voluntarily provide it to us:
- First name
- Last name
- Shipping address
- Billing address
- Phone number (mobile or landline)
- Email address
- Hiyo password
- Credit or debit card number
- Credit or debit card expiration date

If you set up an account on our website, we will ask you to provide a username and password to allow you to reuse some information for future orders, make changes to your information, and to access your order history.
We collect Internet Protocol (IP) addresses from visitors to our website. An IP address is a number that is assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the website, along with the time of the visit, and the pages that were visited. Collecting IP addresses is a standard practice that is done automatically by many websites. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating traffic data, helping diagnose server problems, and administering our website. To protect your privacy, we anonymize a portion of each IP address stored in our server log files and limit the amount of time that each IP address is retained.
Pixel tags, also known as web beacons or clear GIFs, may be used in connection with some portions of our website to track the actions of visitors or email recipients for measuring the success of our marketing campaigns and compiling statistics about the usage of our website. We may assign unique identifiers to pixel tags to associate your interaction with our online and email marketing.
We use third-party analytical tools, such as Google Analytics, to help us better understand how visitors use our website on an aggregate and non-personally identifiable basis. The information collected by these analytical tools may provide us with information such as a search engine that referred you to our website, how you navigated around our website, and what you purchased. This information helps us better serve you with more personalized information and product offerings.
We do not track your online activity across other websites or knowingly permit third parties to conduct online tracking while you visit our website, except as described above. As a result, our website does not respond to a browser's “do not track” signal.
Text marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send text messages about our store, new products, and other updates. Updates include Checkout Reminders. Webhooks will be used to trigger the Checkout Reminders messaging system.
