Who we are
Our website address is: https://searchenginehubbub.com (formerly https://ppchubbub.com) and we are operated by Hubbub Marketing Limited.
Your privacy is very important to us. At Search Engine Hubbub we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason).
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. Unless you have expressed permission for us to do so.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Hubbub Marketing Limited only operates searchenginehubbub.com. It is Search Engine Hubbub’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Search Engine Hubbub collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Search Engine Hubbub’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Search Engine Hubbub’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Search Engine Hubbub may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Search Engine Hubbub’s websites choose to interact with Search Engine Hubbub in ways that require Search Engine Hubbub to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Search Engine Hubbub gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Search Engine hubbub updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Search Engine Hubbub collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Search Engine Hubbub. Search Engine Hubbub does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Search Engine Hubbub may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites through Google Analytics. Search Engine Hubbub may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Search Engine Hubbub does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Like many other Web sites, searchenginehubbub.com makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Search Engine Hubbub discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Search Engine Hubbub’s behalf or to provide services available at Search Engine Hubbub’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Search Engine Hubbub’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Search Engine Hubbub will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Search Engine Hubbub discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Search Engine Hubbub believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Search Engine Hubbub, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a Search Engine Hubbub website and have supplied your email address, Search Engine Hubbub may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Search Engine Hubbub and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
We will not share this personal information with or sell it to any other third-party unless we have your permission or the law requires us to.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
Search Engine Hubbub takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
