HydroMax™ strives to offer its visitors the
many advantages of Internet technology and to provide an interactive
and personalized experience. We may use Personally Identifiable Information
(your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number) subject
only to information collected byHydroMax™ online and does not
impact information collected or used byHydroMax™ or its affiliates
through other means.
How we gather information from users.
How we collect and store information depends on the
page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate
and the services provided. You can visit many pages on our site without
providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide
information, such as when you register for access to portions of
our site, sign up for membership, request certain features (e.g.,
newsletters, news updates and other products), sign up for a newsletter
subscription or make a purchase. You may also provide information
when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, voting and polling
activities, message boards and chat rooms and other interactive areas
of our site.
Like most Web sites,HydroMax™ also collects
information automatically and through the use of electronic tools
that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log
the name of your Internet Service Provider or use "cookie" technology.
Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password,
sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you
visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular
advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology,
we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases,
you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by
setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may
limit your ability to access certain portions of the site or may
require you to re-enter your user name and password. Additionally
we may not be able to customize the site's features according to
What we do with the information we collect.
We will use your information only as permitted by
law. Aggregated Information (information that does not personally
identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine
information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained
from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features
are most attractive. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared
with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to
contact you individually.
We also collect information to enhance your visit
and deliver more individualized content and advertising. For example,
we may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on the HydroMax™ website
to communicate with you regarding our Terms of Service and privacy
policy, products and services offered byHydroMax™ and other
affiliates and partners, administration of contests, processing e-commerce
transactions and other topics we think you might find of interest.
We reserve the right to share this information with other business
units and affiliates, including for example our affiliated entities
in whichHydroMax™ has an ownership interest (collectively, "Affiliates").
This policy does not apply to any Affiliate's use of such information.
Personally Identifiable Information collected byHydroMax™ may
also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site
administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide
technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting
service and our newsletter provider, for example) may access such
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell,
buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such
transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
We may also disclose your information in response to a court order,
at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so
by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe
to us, and/or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give
such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note we may
not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

content we believe might interest you. If you prefer not to receive
e-mail communications sent directly from our advertisers or promotional
partners, you will be given an opportunity to decline before you
provide us information we might use for this purpose. If you decline
