Do Not Track
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference
that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking
by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable
DNT signals and therefore, Hola and the Sites do not recognize DNT.
Hola is fully committed to data security. We
use security techniques on the Sites to help protect against the loss, misuse
or alteration of information collected from you at the Sites. When you access
your account information or transmit personally identifiable data to the Sites,
that information is stored on servers that the Sites have attempted to secure
from unauthorized access or intrusion. "Secure Socket Layer" software
encrypts personal information you transmit to the Sites. However, while we
strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of
the information you transmit to us. In this regard, we urge you to take every
precaution to protect your personal data while you are on the Internet. At a
minimum, we encourage you to make sure that you are using a secure browser as
you surf the Internet.
The Sites use "cookies," which are
small pieces of information stored by your browser or other application on your
computer's browser or hard drive. The cookies are used to connect your computer
with information stored about your online activity, searches, preferences and
product purchases both within the same website visit and from one visit to the
next on Hola and/or other websites. (Some examples of this data include your
account preferences, user specific information on pages accessed, searched
terms or addresses entered, and previous visits to the site.) The
"help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to
prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify
you when you receive new cookies or how to disable cookies altogether. If you
reject cookies, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or
receive a promotion tailored to you. The Sites do not control and do not
guarantee the effectiveness of browser-based tools for managing cookies.
We or our partners may also use Flash cookies
(also known as Local Stored Objects) or other similar technologies. A Flash
cookie is a small data file placed on a computer using Adobe Flash or similar
technology that may be built into your computer or downloaded or installed by
you to your computer. We use these technologies to personalize and enhance your
online experience, facilitate processes, and personalize and store your
settings. Flash cookies may help our website visitors to, for example, set
volume preference associated with a video experience, play games and perform
surveys. They help us improve our Sites by measuring which areas are of
greatest interest to customers. They may be recognized by other sites or by our
marketing or business partners. Flash cookies are different from browser
cookies and the cookie management tools provided by your browser may not remove
Flash cookies. Click here to learn how to
manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies. If you disable Flash
cookies or other similar technologies, please be aware that you may not have
access to certain features and services that make your online experience more
efficient and enjoyable.
We may also use web beacons, which are
electronic images that may be used on our websites or in our emails. We use web
beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign
effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.
We may combine the information we collect
through cookies, web beacons, or other technology tools with other information
we have collected from you or information from other sources.
We maintain a social media presence, such as a
Hola Facebook page, a Hola Instagram page and Hola Twitter feed. You can
interact with us through social media, such as by entering our contests,
posting content, sharing material from Hola’s websites, and using our social
media plug-ins. When you interact with us using social media, we may receive
information such as your user ID, your profile picture, photos you post, and
similar information, which is often determined by your privacy settings at
social media sites. We may use the information for the same types of purposes
primarily governed by the site operators’ privacy policies and terms of
service, and the information you share with us and with others is largely
controlled by the privacy settings you have established at those sites. We are
not responsible for the activities and practices that take place on these
on any external site before disclosing any personal information. Please contact
those websites directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.
Network and Interest-Based Advertising
We may also enter into agreements with third
parties that possess technology that allows the Sites to use targeting or
advertising cookies to see which areas and features are popular, count visits
to our Sites and customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive
on the Sites. This information may be shared with these third parties for this
purpose. The Sites may use Google Analytics and the third-party cookie
DoubleClick to optimize our Sites based on the traffic we receive and assist
with marketing. To learn more about Google Analytics, including options for
opting out and/or managing the ads you may see online please visit: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.
We also provide interest-based advertising
about our products and services on other parties’ websites. We may use
third-party advertising companies that use tracking technologies to serve our
advertisements across the Internet. These companies may collect information
about your visits to the Sites and other websites and your interaction with our
advertising and other communications. These advertising companies serve ads on
behalf of us and others on non-affiliated sites, and some of those ads may be
personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on
information collected about your visits to the Sites and elsewhere over time.
Other companies may also use such technology to advertise on our Sites. You
have the choice to tell us not to collect and use this information. If you
would like more information about this practice and to know your choices
concerning interest-based ads, visit https://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/what-are-my-options or www.aboutads.info/choices.
Updates or Changes to Your Information
You can also use the contact form at
www.holafuel.com. To change your shipping or billing information for Hola.com
orders, log on, select "My Account" and make the appropriate changes.
The Sites do not knowingly solicit or collect
personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13
without prior verifiable parental consent. If Hola learns that a child under
the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online without
parental consent, it will take all reasonable measures to delete such
information from its databases and to not use such information for any purpose
(except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as
required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personally identifiable
information we have collected from children under 13, please use the contact
from at www.holafuel.com.
Minors under 18 years of age may have the
personal information that they posted on the Sites deleted by contact form at
www.holafuel.com. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply
with such requests, deletion of your personally identifiable information does
not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.

effect at the time of use.

law provides you with the following rights with respect to your personal
right to request to know the categories or specific pieces and the sources
of personal information we have collected, used, and disclosed about you.

When you exercise these rights and submit a
request to us, we will verify your identity by asking you to log in to your
account if you have one with us. Or if you do not, we may ask for your email
address. We may also use a third party verification provider to verify your
identity. We will endeavor to honor such requests unless such a request
conflicts with certain lawful exemptions under the California Consumer Privacy
Act of 2018. Please note that we are only required to honor such requests twice
in a 12-month period.
The fact that you have elected to exercise
these rights will have no adverse effect on the price and quality of our
products or services.
For the 12-month period prior to the date of
your information for marketing purposes, as described above. If you are a
California resident, the Shine the Light law permits you to request and obtain
from us once per calendar year information about any of your personal
information shared with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes,
including the categories of information and the names and addresses of those
businesses with which we have shared such information. To request this
information and for any other questions about our privacy practices and
compliance with California law, please contact us as explained above: www.holafuel.com/contact
