At ("Huuk," "we," "us"), we are fully aware of the trust you place in us when it comes to your personal information. This Privacy Policy details the nature of the information that Huuk will collect when you interact with the Huuk platform, clarifies how this information will be utilized, and outlines the options available to you for managing the collection, correction, and deletion of your information. Rest assured, we are committed to handling your information exclusively as stated within this Privacy Policy and will not share it with any third parties otherwise.

Information We Collect

User-Provided Information:

When you sign up for a membership account on the Huuk platform - or link Huuk to your social media profile - you entrust us with personal details such as your name, postal address, email, telephone number and your preferences in travel. As you interact with our platform, you might also share insights into your social networks or enable us to access your location, always according to your privacy settings on Huuk. Any emails you send us won’t just disappear into the ether; we’ll keep a record of our conversations, including your contact details and our replies, to ensure we’re fully responsive to your needs. And let’s not forget the content you contribute to our platform—every message you send or post you make is captured, helping us to understand better and engage with the Huuk community.

Cookies Information

When you visit the Platform, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets Huuk help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey anonymous information about how you browse the Platform to us. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Platform may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

Log File Information

Each time you visit a web page, your browser automatically reports log file information. Similarly, when you engage with our Platform, our servers automatically document specific information transmitted by your web browser during any website visit. This recorded data in our server logs may encompass details such as your web request, the type of browser used, referring and exit pages, URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, and the pages you viewed. Additionally, the server logs capture the first three octets of your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. This process ensures that we maintain accurate and secure records of your interactions with the platform.

How We Share Your Information

Personally Identifiable Information

Huuk will not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others. Huuk may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of providing the Platform to you. If we do this, such third parties’ use of your information will be bound by this Privacy Policy. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Huuk (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Platform, such as User Content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings. If you remove information that you posted to the Platform, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Platform or if other Users have copied or saved that information.

From time to time, we may run contests, special offers, or other events or activities (“Events”) on the Platform together with a third party partner. If you provide information to such third parties, you give them permission to use it for the purpose of that Event and any other use that you approve. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with a third party, you can choose not to participate in these Events.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, Huuk will not disclose personal information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to enforce our Terms of Use, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; and (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Huuk, our Users or others.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages, and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Huuk platforms.

Huuk may allow third-party ad servers or advertisement networks to serve advertisements on the Platform. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on Huuk. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, you can visit Huuk does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Huuk to show an advertisement to a certain audience and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The Huuk Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, third-party advertisers. Please consult the respective privacy policies of such advertisers for more information.

Third party ad servers or ad networks may, as required by applicable law, require Huuk to ask for consent before showing personalized content. In this case, Huuk will either ask for consent or show non-personalized content instead. Please note, non-personalized advertising content may still be contextual based on your current search on Huuk and your Member account information.

How We Protect Your Information

Huuk implements a range of commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to maintain the integrity and security of your personal information and to enforce your privacy settings. Despite these measures, we cannot completely guarantee the security of the information you transmit to Huuk, nor can we assure that your data will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed if there is a breach of our safeguards. Furthermore, your privacy settings may be influenced by modifications in the functionality of our distributors, like social networks, over which we have no control.

To safeguard your privacy and security, Huuk takes practical measures, such as requiring a unique password, to verify your identity before allowing access to your account. You bear the responsibility for keeping your unique password and account information confidential and for managing access to your email communications linked to Huuk at all times.

Compromise of Personal Information
