Privacy

We understand that you care about how your personal information is being used online. In all our operations we treat your privacy with the outermost concern and we are thankful for your confidence.

What is a privacy policy?

In our case it is a policy covering how we gather and use information from you when interacting with our online services. This policy not only applies to fashionhunt.co.uk/.com and our app but also to widgets and other hosted services released by us published on websites belonging to our partners.

Why do you gather information?

Our aim is to build the best search engine for women’s fashion. In order to do so user feedback is critical. This feedback comes in many forms. One of the most important is user actions and behavior on the site/app.

Can you give an example?

For example, if you make a search for the terms "t- shirt + bra" our search engine will initially have a hard time understanding if you are looking for something in the women’s tops section or the women’s lingerie section. However, after registering that most users selected the lingerie section our system becomes smarter and more useful.

What information do you gather?

Information comes in many different forms. We only gather information we feel needed to improve our services.

  • Automatic information is collected when our users complete actions on our site. These actions can be everything from conducting a search to visiting one of the participating stores. Furthermore, our server logs will tell us about the user’s web traffic data. That involves stuff like IP address, referral URL, browser version, etc. This automatic information is analyzed anonymously and in aggregate.
  • User provided information is collected whenever our users actively register information on our site. For example when saving items as favorites, participating in contests or registering for membership. Our service works great even though you do not provide us this information. However, with this information you will get a more personalized experience.
  • Email communication can also be a means for collection useful information. Your mail software may send a confirmation that you have received an e-mail from us for example.
  • Other sources of information are also of importance in order for us to create the best search engine for women’s fashion. Our partner stores send us notification when purchases are being made through us. This information is used in order to more efficiently rank and recommend products to our users.

What about those cookies?

  • Finally, we use third party software on our site that uses cookies. This software helps with our in-house ad inventory and generation of stats.

For example, if you have looked at several maxi dresses our system might recommend high heels shoes or clutch handbags to go with it.

Will you share your information?

We only share your information with others when we strongly feel that this will help us improve our business and help us reach our objective to become the best fashion search engine for women.

When sharing information the intimacy of our users is of the outermost concern for us. Most information shared is therefore analyzed in aggregated form without individual information attached.

Is the information secure?

  • Restricted access to information within our organization. Only employees that strongly needs access to collected information is granted. No one is allowed to export information to external disks or e-mail it.

What’s your policy on e-mail?

    We send e-mail by several reasons to our users. For example when users sign up for newsletters, promotion alerts, new product alerts, completes registration, request password, etc. We always specify why a mail has been sent.

We also let you as a user add, edit or delete most of the information you have provided us in your account.
