Links to Other Sites

This web site contains mostly links to other sites. Please be aware that we (Hot Deals Club) are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.


Some areas of this website may require the user to first complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender), and unique identifiers (such as social security number), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site.


A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Cookies can enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. The Hot Deals Club uses cookies to track some users that visit the site, for the purpose of collecting trend information on users which ultimately will allow us to deliver better content. The Hot Deals Club may collect information on how many times each person clicks on a deal, how many times a user visits the site, and from what region the user comes from. Advertisements on the site may use cookies to track users. When a user clicks on a link on the Hot Deals Club, the target site may collect information regarding the user's session and may know that the user came from the Hot Deals Club.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Mailing List

Only invited users may subscribe to our mailing list. If an invited user wishes to subscribe to our mailing list, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Supplementation of Information

In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation to our visitors, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources. In order for this website to enhance its ability to tailor the site to an individual's preference, we combine information about the browsing & clicking habits of users with similar information from our partners, Hot Deals Club, and Website Network, to create a personalized user profile. When a user clicks on a link within the Hot Deals Club domain, we log the clickthroughs so we can tailor the site to our users' preferences. We will not disclose specific information (such as IP address, time & date) about our users' clicks.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service(s), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can be done by emailing the Hot Deals Maniac.


Our users are given the opportunity to "opt-out" of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our mailing list has an "opt-out" mechanism so members can cancel their subscriptions at any time.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
