The Hoard Planet
Privacy Policy

Hey… don’t worry about your private information when you’re searching for our website. That’s why we’re committed to protecting the personal information you share with us – and why we’ve created this privacy policy.

It tells you who we are, the ways we collect your information, what we do with it, and who we share it with.

Who We Are :

‘The Hoard Planet’ is a  global platform for multi-dimensional trendy information on technology, gadgets, travel and cool entertaining stuff…

Our website address: https://www.thehoardplanet.com

What personal data we collect and why we collect it :

What personal data we collect from users and site visitors :

  • This may include personal data, such as name, email address, personal account preferences, and technical data [such as information about cookies]. You should also note any collection and retention of sensitive personal data [such as data concerning health].
  • In addition to listing what personal data we collect, we need to note why we collect it. These explanations must note either the legal basis for your data collection and retention or the active consent the user has given.
  • Personal data is not just created by a user’s interactions with our site. Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third-party embeds.
  • By default, WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users. However, some of our plugins may collect personal data.

We explain each of these in more detail below, but to be clear, The Hoard Planet does not, and will not, sell information about you to anyone. We only use your information as set out in this notice and we will only share your information with third parties for commercial purposes such as marketing or promotions if we have your consent to do so; or where we’ve engaged a company outside The Hoard Planet to provide a service for us [which might involve them handling your information, but this is only when we have proper safeguards in place] or where we’re obliged by law to share information with authorities.

When we receive your information automatically :

When you view our sites and applications on your devices, we collect technical information like the type of device you are using [e.g., phone, computer, other]; the version of the operating system running on the device; the version and build of the application being used; anonymous usage statistics and crash reporting data; and unique identifier details for your device such as the IP address [a unique number that identifies your computer whilst accessing the internet].

However, unique identifiers are anonymized and we do not use this information to identify you as an individual.

We consider this necessary either to process and administer your contractual use of our site or for our legitimate interests in operating and improving them [including personalizing your user experience]. Specifically, we use these details to:

  • Show you advertising that we think will be more relevant to you. 
  • This data will only be shared with third parties who assist us to provide these services to you. This data may be cached on your device for short periods of time in order to improve user experience and make our websites more responsive.

We also use this automatically gathered information about you to understand how our website is used by our community and to make sure any technical problems are reported to us.

We use Google Analytics to gather and process this data. For details about the information Google Analytics collects and how Google Analytics treats that information please visit their Terms of Service and Privacy Policy or see our Cookies Policy.

Third-Party Advertisements :

We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information [e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you.

These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. We, therefore, have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit https://www.networkadvertising.org.

Cookie Policy :

We use cookies for tracking purposes. This site uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience.

In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymized tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others.

The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers. If you turn cookies off, Some of the features that make your site experience more efficient may not function properly.

Comments :

All comments from users who have not commented and been approved before will be held in moderation. Anything deemed spam or offensive will be deleted and not published on the site. We do not store the IP address of commenters nor are any personal details required to leave a comment.

You should note what information is captured through comments. We have noted the data which WordPress collects by default. When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address [also called a hash] may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/

After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Email and Newsletters :

Any email information submitted for competitions or newsletter applications will never be passed on to any other parties. You can unsubscribe at any time. Occasionally, some links may be affiliate links for products/services I believe in – by using these links you will not notice any additional costs or affect on you but this helps to fund the provision of this website.

Contact forms :

By default, WordPress does not include a contact form. We use a third-party plugin for contact. You may note that we keep contact form submissions for a certain period for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.

Embedded content from other websites :

Articles on this site may include embedded content [e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.]. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

What rights you have over your data :

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
