Information You Give to Us.

The information we collect on or through our Website may include:

  • Information that you provide on our Website.
    • This includes information provided when you sign in or register for an account for the Website. However, this does not include information or content that you post on the Website.
  • Records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses) if you contact us, such as when you report a problem with our Website.
  • Your search queries on the Website.

Information We Collect About You.

As with many other websites, as you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

  • Details of your visits to our Website, including traffic data, location data, logs, language, date and time of access, frequency, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Website.
  • Information about your computer and Internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, host domain, and browser type.
  • Details of referring websites (URL). We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).

The information we collect automatically includes statistical data and may also include personal information. We may also maintain it or associate it with personal information you provide to us or that we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:

  • Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
  • Store information about your preferences.
  • Speed up your searches.
  • Recognize you when you return to our Website.

As with many other websites, our Website may use “cookies” or other technologies to help us deliver content specific to your interests, to process your requests, and/or to analyze your visiting patterns. We may collect the following types of information about your visit including: the domain from which you access the Internet; IP address; operating system and information about the device or browser used when visiting the Website; date and time of your visit; content you visited; general location; and website (such as or and website referral source (email notice or social media site) that connected you to the Website. Our Website uses two types of cookies: single-session (temporary) and multi-session (persistent). Temporary cookies last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for technical purposes such as enabling better navigation through our Website. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our Website and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. Cookies, by themselves, will not be used by Hive80™ to disclose your individual identity. This information identifies your browser, but not you, to our servers when you use the Website. We do not respond to “do not track” signals in your browser. We may also collect data by using “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “pixel tags”) that allow us to know when you visit our Website. Through pixel tags, we obtain non-personal information or aggregate information that can be used to enhance your online experience and understand traffic patterns.

Information We Receive From Other Sources.

This is information we receive about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or other services we provide. We sometimes work with third parties and they sometimes provide information about you. We obtain information from such third parties with whom we work to provide you with services (including, for example, sub-contractors, analytics providers, and search information providers).

In addition, we may use third-party providers to serve or track interactions on other websites. You may link to or access our Website using other third-party websites. Use of such third-party websites is subject to the terms of service and privacy policies of those third parties. Hive80™ does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

In addition, you agree that we have the right to disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Privacy Policy:

  • To anyone you have authorized disclosure of information to in this Privacy Policy or any other consent or policy.
  • To service providers that assist us in the maintenance, improvement, and optimization of our Website, such as:

Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with control over your information:

  • Tracking Technologies and Advertising. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our Website may then be inaccessible or may not function properly.
  • Do Not Track. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals as we do not track our users across third-party websites.
  • Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to reasonably secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website; any transmission is at your own risk.

  • Third-Party Websites

Our Website may contain links or references to other websites outside of our control. This includes links contained in advertisements, including banner advertisements and sponsored links. Please be aware that this Privacy Policy does not apply to these websites. Hive80™ encourages you to read the privacy statements and terms and conditions of linked or referenced websites you enter. These third-party websites may send their own cookies and other tracking devices to you, log your IP address, and otherwise collect data or solicit personal information. Hive80™ DOES NOT CONTROL AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THIRD PARTIES DO IN CONNECTION WITH THEIR WEBSITES, OR HOW THEY HANDLE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION AND CONSULT THE PRIVACY POLICIES POSTED ON EACH THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.

Children Under the Age of 18

In general, our Website is not intended for children under 18 years of age, and Hive80™ does not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children under the age of 18. No one under the age of 18 may provide any information to or on the Website. By using the Website, you confirm that you are not under the age of 18. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under the age of 18, we will make reasonable efforts to delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 18, please contact us at the address provided in Section ‎XI below.

California Consumer Rights

If you are a California resident (“California Consumer”), under CCPA, you have specific rights regarding your Personal Information. This section describes the rights that you have under CCPA or similar laws under your jurisdiction (if any) and explains how to exercise those rights, subject in all cases to any limitations set forth in the CCPA or other applicable law. Please refer to the information above for more detail about the types of personal information collected, the purposes for which and sources from where we collect personal information, and the third parties with whom we share personal information.

Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold 

As a California Consumer, you have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, use, disclosure, or sale of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see “Exercising Access and Deletion Rights”), and subject to certain limitations that we describe below, we will disclose such information. You have the right to request any or all of the following:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).

Deletion Request Rights 

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see “Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights”), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception (e.g., under applicable law) applies.  However, we may retain personal information that has been de-identified or aggregated. Furthermore, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) in order to perform certain actions in accordance with applicable laws, such as detecting security incidents and protecting against fraudulent or illegal activity. 

Exercising Access and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access and deletion rights described above, please submit a request to us by emailing us at or by contact us form.

Only you, or a person or business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (an “authorized agent”), may make the requests set forth above.

The request should include your contact information and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to reasonably understand, evaluate, and respond to your request. In addition, you should provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected the Personal Information or an authorized representative of that person.

For more information about verification, see “Response Timing and Format” immediately below. 

Response Timing and Format

We will respond to your request(s) in a reasonably timely manner. If we require extra time to respond, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. In order to protect the security of your personal information, we will not honor a request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. The method used to verify your identity will depend on the type, sensitivity, and value of the information, including the risk of harm to you posed by any authorized access or deletion. Generally speaking, verification will be performed by matching the identifying information provided by you to the personal information that we already have. 

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request (and will not be made more than twice in a 12-month period). If we cannot comply with a request, or cannot fully comply with a request, the response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply.


We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

Nevada Privacy Rights

If you are a Nevada resident, you have the right to request that we do not sell certain personal information that we have collected, or may collect, from you.  The definition of “sale” under the Nevada statute means, subject to certain exceptions, the “exchange of information for monetary consideration to a third party for the third party to license or sell the information to additional persons.”  We do not “sell” your personal information as defined by Nevada law, however, if you would like to make such a request you may do so by contacting us at [EMAIL ADDRESS].

Additional EU Disclosures

Grounds for Using Your Personal Information
We rely on the following legal basis to process your personal information:

  • It may be necessary for us to use and disclose your personal information for the performance and fulfillment of the contract between us and to provide you with our services;
  • We may use and disclose your personal information where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interest and fundamental rights do not override those interests;
  • If you specifically consent to certain uses of your personal information, we may use your personal information in a manner consistent with that consent; and
  • We will also process, transfer, disclose, and preserve personal information when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary. 

Data Subject Rights

If you are located in the European Union with rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), you have the following rights, subject in all cases to any limitations set forth in the GDPR:

  • Right to access – This right allows individuals to obtain confirmation that his or her personal information is being processed and allows individuals to request details of the processing of his or her personal information, including, without limitation, categories of recipients to whom the personal information has been or will be disclosed and purposes of processing.
  • Right to rectify – This right allows individuals to rectify any inaccurate personal information about him or her.
  • Right to restrict processing – This right allows individuals to block or suppress processing of personal information under certain circumstances.
  • Right to be forgotten – This right is also known as the “right to erasure.” It is an individual’s right to have personal information erased or to prevent processing in specific circumstances.
  • Right of data portability – This right allows individuals to move, copy or transfer personal information from one place to another in a secure manner without interrupting the integrity and usability of the information.
  • Right to object to processing – This right allows individuals to object to certain types of processing, including direct marketing, profiling, and providing for purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.
  • Right to withdraw consent – Where we are relying on consent to process your personal information, this right allows you to withdraw your consent. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent or processing that does not rely on consent.

To exercise your rights, please contact us at [INSERT EMAIL]. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure you have a right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. 

Please note, you also have the right to make a complaint at any time to your local supervisory authority. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach your supervisory authority so please contact us in the first instance.
