Habbo Hotel - Privacy Policy

 

 
  Here at the Habbo Hotel we want everyone to have a good time, and we promise to keep your hotel as secure and as private as we can. The Habbo Hotel is a place for you to come and relax, bug out and meet new people. We have a few rules that you do need to accept before you can become a member, so you need to read the Privacy Policy all the way through before you can join. By clicking the "ACCEPT" button you will enter into an agreement with the Habbo Hotel and you are agreeing to us holding and processing your personal information.

If you are under 14 we think you should check with your parents or guardians that they are happy for you to be a member of Habbo Hotel, and please get them to explain any areas of this statement you may not fully understand.

If you have any concerns regarding your personal information, website content, or any queries with regard to Habbo Hotel practices please email us at [email protected]

SECURITY
All information you provide us with, and all information contained in your account, is encrypted. This coding lets your browser automatically encrypt or scramble data before you send it to us. Transactions will not be permitted if your browser does not accept the encryption. Only authorised personnel of Habbo Hotel or its partners can decode this information and such personnel will only do so in accordance with our, or their, privacy policy. We employ this facility to ensure that all information we receive from you is in a secure environment at all times.

CHILDREN
The Habbo Hotel is not intended for use by children, especially those under the age of 14. No one under the age of 14 is allowed to provide any personal information or to use our public discussion areas without parental consent.

If your children disclose information about themselves in our public discussion areas, they may get unsolicited messages from other parties. Accordingly, it is up to you to ensure they abide by our Terms and Conditions.

COOKIES
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser.

DISCLOSURES
We will not sell, share, or rent your information to others except as set out in this Privacy Statement.

  • We will only disclose personal information to other companies within our group of companies, business partners, purchasers of our business and suppliers we engage to process data on our behalf. We may also disclose this information to a Licensed Credit Reference Agency.
  • The business partners, strategic partners, purchasers of our business and suppliers may gather information for their own purposes and for that reason we cannot exercise control over the uses to which they apply your personal information. It is, however, our belief that when we supply your details to them, they will keep your details secure and not pass them on to third parties and only use your details to market their own products to you.
