Hardline automatically collects certain technical information from your computer or mobile device when you use our website, such as your Internet Protocol address, your web browser type and version, the name and version of your operating system, and the pages you view on the website.

Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device, that will interfere with your use of the Service.

In addition, the Service may collect information on your contacts if you permit such access in order to use certain features in the Service, such as to connect with your contacts through the Service. The Service may also request permission and access to your photo gallery, camera roll or other device storage area holding your images and/or videos, in order for you to upload and transmit them through the Service.

Cookies

We use cookies to collect information regarding your use of the Service. A cookie is a small string of data that often includes an anonymous unique identifier sent to your browser from a website’s computers, and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Our use of cookies enables us to track user sessions and does not make use of personal information. Cookies enable the Service to recognize your Internet browser and tell us how and when pages on the Service are visited and by how many users. You can adjust your browser settings to accept all cookies, refuse all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is being placed on your hard drive. If you reject all cookies, it may diminish your experience with the Service because of additional time needed to enter your information repeatedly, and you may not be able to access some features of the Service. Also, if you click on a link to a third party website or service, such third party may also transmit cookies to you. Again, this Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties, and we aren’t responsible for their privacy policies and practices. Please be aware that cookies placed by third parties may continue to track your activities online even after you have left our Service, and those third parties may not honor “Do Not Track” requests you have set using your browser or device.

Sharing Information Collected with Third Parties

Further, we may disclose collected information to the extent we believe it necessary to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to defend a legal claim or otherwise as permitted by applicable law.

This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Hardline through the Service.If you disclose information to other users of the Service, it will not be governed by this Privacy Policy.
