1.  Our Collection of Your Information and Information of Third Parties
From time to time, you may provide us with Your Information or the information of third parties. Instances, where you may provide Your Information or information of third parties, include when you register for or create an account with our Services when you initiate your transactions or other activities conducted on or through our Services, and when you otherwise communicate with us (including our Customer Service) or with third parties with which we have relationships.

Additionally, we collect information that you generate when using our Services. For example, our Services may allow you to communicate, share or post information with us as well as other users through our Services, such as when you may request funds from third parties on or through our Services. We may also collect information about you from sources other than you, such as from our third-party service providers, like our identity verification and electronic database service providers. Some examples of the information we collect because of the practices described above include:

  • Your name, date of birth, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information;
  • Information you provide us about third parties, such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.

2. Other information we collect (non-personally identifiable information)

We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose this for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personally identifiable information that we collect and how we may use it:

  • We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where a product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
  • We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website and Mobile Cloud Services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and Services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
  • We may collect and store details of how you use ourServices, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevance of results provided by our Services. Except in limited instances to ensure the quality of our Services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personally identifiable information for as long as it remains combined.

3. Cookies and Other Technologies

We and third parties acting on our behalf may use various technologies to collect and store information when you use our Services, including sending cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous identifiers to your device. These technologies help us know that you are logged on to or using our Services, provide you with features based on your preferences, help us understand when and how you are interacting with ourServices, and compile other information regarding your use of our Services.

 The information collected through these technologies, standing alone, cannot be used to determine your identity. Such information may, however, be combined in a way that makes it become personally identifiable information (i.e., information that can identify you). For example, we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or that you provide to us. If this happens, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information.

 It may be possible to disable some (but not all) Cookies through your device or browser settings but doing so may affect the functionality of our Services. The method for disabling Cookies or other automatic collection technologies may vary by device and browser but can usually be found in preferences or security settings. For example, iOS and Android devices each have settings that are designed to limit forms of ad tracking.

We partner with a third party to either display advertising on ourServices or to manage our advertising on other sites or mediums. Our third-party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on our Services and other sites to provide you advertising based on your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising, you may do through email at:contact@h-way.com or by mail at 2900 Southwest 28th Terrace, Suite 202,Coconut Grove, FL 33133, USA.
