This policy describes the information that H. J. Baker & Bro., LLC. (“H. J. Baker” or “we”) collects through the H. J. Baker website located at <hjbaker.com> (the “Website”) and any mobile application of ours (each, an “App”) (collectively, the “Service”) and how we use, disclose and protect your information and the choices you can make about your information. Throughout this policy “information” includes personal information about you.
TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT IT
Information That You Give Us. When using the Service, you may be prompted to give us information about yourself. For example, when you submit a request for information, you may be prompted for your name, postal address, country, email address and information about the query. If you apply for credit, you can be prompted for your name, postal address, country, email address, telephone number, fax, Federal tax ID number, Social Security number, GST number, banking account number and other information, information regarding business references and the amount of credit requested.
Information We Get From Your Use of the Service. We may automatically collect information from your interaction with the Service and emails sent to you. Such information may include:
- Electronic Communications Protocols and Similar Technological Devices. We may collect information about your use of the Service through electronic communications protocols, web beacons, cookies, embedded URLs, pixel tags and other similar technological devices. We may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself. This type of information may include, among other types of information: your geographic location; network information (for example, where you came from); domain name of the Internet service provider; equipment information (for example, device type, telephone, model and serial numbers, unique device identifier, operating system, browser type, Internet Protocol (IP) address); pages on the Website visited; information regarding your access to and use of the App; date, time and duration of visit.
- Web Beacons. In order to determine your ability to receive HTML email and whether an email has been opened, we may include a “web beacon” in HTML email sent by us or on our behalf. A web beacon (for example, a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened, making a request for an embedded image on our servers or the servers of our service providers. This capability helps us send email in a format that users can read and enables us to track the aggregate number of emails opened. Users that do not want to receive email from us with web beacons can choose to receive emails in plain text (non-HTML) format. We may also track access to URLs that have been clicked inside of emails sent by us or on our behalf. We use this functionality to track which links were clicked and at what rate, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked.
- Local Storage. We may collect and store information (including personally identifiable information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
- Persistent cookies remain on the visitor’s computer after the browser has been closed.
- Session cookies exist only during a visitor’s online session and disappear from the visitor’s computer when they close the browser software.
- Persistent Device Identifiers. Persistent device identifiers are unique strings that are associated with the device that you use to connect to the Service. Persistent device identifiers may be modified or disabled by knowledgeable users.
