Please read this notice carefully.
Personal Information Hawaii Islander does not disclose your personal information to any third party without your express written consent, except to a third party as required to help us distribute our email newsletter.
Hawaii Islander does not collect any other personally identifying information that you do not provide. We will never share, rent, or sell your personal information, including your email address with any third parties for marketing purposes.
Non Personal Information Like many website operators, Hawaii Islander gathers from users of the Website non personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information could include your internet protocol (“IP”) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages that you view before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.
We may also request non-personally identifying information, such as annual income, purchase preferences, or age, also known as demographic and profile data, though, again it is your decision whether or not to provide it. Not providing this or other information will not impact your enjoyment of our site. However, should you choose to provide it, it could greatly help us improve the site and/or tailor your experience at Hawaii Islander. We do reserve the right to analyze this data in the aggregate for usage trends and to make sure we are choosing appropriate advertisers, partners, events, hotels, and programs.
Usage Information In addition to collecting personal and non-personal information, Hawaii Islander may also collect non-personal, aggregated information about its subscribers’ use of the site. This information is not personally identifiable and will only be used to find out how subscribers use the site. For example, this information will tell us how much time users spend on the site, the origin of other sites’ subscribers, and where subscribers visit.
Review and Access Upon request, you are entitled to a summary of the information we collect. You will have an opportunity to modify this information, if needed.
Choice/Opt Out You may opt out at any time. If we ever send you information that you did not request or have decided that you no longer want to receive, we will provide you with an email address so that you may request no further notices.

Web beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information; they are a technique Hawaii Islander may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage.
