HERO is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information whilst striving to provide the very best user experience. We want your use of the HERO Mobile Application (the “App”) and website(s) (www.herotheapp.com – the “Website”) to be safe and enjoyable. Under the Data Protection Act 1998 and related laws, we have a legal duty to protect the personal information we collect from you.
The types of personal information we collect and how we collect it:
Information you provide upon ordering a product or service from us: if you order a product or service from us, you will need to provide certain personal details so that the order can be fulfilled. In some cases, we will direct you to a third party partner site which will collect this information from you and fulfil your order.
Email communications: we may decide to use software in our emails to track the success of our marketing campaigns. If you open an email from us, we can see which of the pages of our Website you visited. We will not store any information on your computer but, by communicating with our cookies on your computer, they can tell us when you have opened an email from us. We may keep track of the emails that we send you. We also keep a record of what communications you have selected to receive or not to receive. If you would like to opt out of receiving such emails, please click the “unsubscribe” link in the email and follow the instructions.
