Information collected or received
As a member of 1H2O3, you are required to provide a valid email address at the time of registration and you will then be able to choose a username or pseudonym representing your identity on the Site and Applications.

We may store credit card information and use it for both billing and payment purposes. 1H2O3 may contact certain store owners to request, under the seal of confidentiality, more information about their stores or items offered for sale on the Site, or to ensure compliance with our rules and legislation. For some products or services on 1H2O3, it is necessary to submit an application; the information you submit through the application processes will not be publicly viewable and will only be used internally by 1H2O3, unless otherwise specified.
You may, if you wish, choose to provide and publicly display your full name and other personal information (such as your birthday, gender, and city of residence) in connection with your account and activity. If you do not want this additional information to be visible to the public, you can remove it by going to your 1H2O3 Public Profile page.
Your user name, username or nickname is publicly displayed and connected to your activity on the Site and Applications. Other people may see your registration date, notices, notes, profile information, articles for sale, pages of your shop, product sheets of articles sold, and your comments on community spaces.
1H2O3 automatically receives and stores information from your browser or mobile device when you visit the Site or use the Applications, such as your IP address or the unique identifier of your device, as well as cookies and data about the pages you visit on the Site or the Applications, and stores it in log files. We may combine this automatically collected information with other information we collect about you. This information helps us prevent fraud and maintain the security of the Site and Applications, analyze and understand how the Site and Applications work for members and visitors, and provide a more personalized experience for members and visitors.
When using Applications, you can choose to share your geolocation details with 1H2O3 to use our location-based services. If you have notified us of your geographic location but no longer wish to share this information, you can disable these services via the settings on the Applications or on your mobile device. We will only share information about your geographic location with third parties (such as our mapping provider) for the purpose of providing these services to you. You can also enable Applications to access the camera on your mobile device to upload photos to 1H2O3.
Some members or visitors may log in to the Site or Applications, or create a 1H2O3 account using an external third-party application, such as Facebook, or an application developed using the 1H2O3 Application Programming Interface (API). 1H2O3 can receive data from these connected third-party applications. Connecting your 1H2O3 account to third-party applications or services is optional, and when you connect your account to an external application, 1H2O3 will grant you permission to receive information from third-party applications. You can also choose to share some of your 1H2O3 activities on certain social networks connected to your 1H2O3 account. You can change your settings and revoke your authorization from your account settings.
It is possible that 1H2O3 may receive or obtain information (e. g., an email address or IP address) from a person who is not yet a member of 1H2O3 (a “non-member”) in connection with certain features of the Site or the Applications, for example when a non-member subscribes to a 1H2O3 newsletter, or when a member invites a non-member to visit the Site, or when a member downloads information from a non-member via the contact download feature., or a member name initiates a transaction, or a member sends the gift card code to a member name. Non-member information is used only for the purposes described when submitting to 1H2O3. A non-member may contact the support team if they do not wish 1H2O3 to retain their information.
1H2O3 also collects certain information from both members and non-members who visit websites hosted by the Site. This information may include your IP address or the unique identifier of your device, as well as cookies and data from the pages you visit.
Choice and control
We know that members of our community value the control of their own information, and therefore, 1H2O3 gives you the choice to provide, modify or delete certain information, as well as the choice of how we may contact you.
You may modify or correct your account information (except your username) on the Site. You may also remove certain optional information from the Site that you no longer wish to see publicly displayed on the Site.
For various reasons, 1H2O3 may send you messages about our services or your activity. Some of these messages are mandatory because they relate to services for members (such as transaction-related or legal messages). Other messages are not required (such as newsletters), and you can choose the optional messages you want to receive by changing your settings in your account.
If you have chosen to connect your account to an external third-party application, such as Facebook, or an application developed using the 1H2O3 API, you can change your settings and remove the application’s authorization by changing your account settings.
If you no longer wish to use the Site, the Applications or other services of 1H2O3, or receive messages relating to the services, you may close your account.
You can connect directly to your email service provider, mobile device address book, or a social network account to import your contacts on 1H2O3. We do not store login information about your email service, mobile device, or social networks that you use. You can search for people you know by email address or phone number on the Site or by connecting to your mobile device’s contact list through the Applications. Finding your friends on 1H2O3 helps you connect with them on our platform. For example, you can subscribe to another member’s public activity, such as Public Favourites. When you start to follow the activity of another member, he or she will receive an email notification (unless that member has deactivated the reception of this type of email).
If you do not want your contacts to be able to find you on 1H2O3 through your email address, phone number or social network connections, then you can disable this feature through your account settings on the Site. If you do not wish to be found on 1H2O3 via your full name, you may remove your name from the public information of your account on the Site. It is not possible to disable the function to find you via your username.
Messages from 1H2O3
1H2O3 will contact you on certain occasions. These messages are essentially transmitted by email or through instant notifications, and each account must be associated with a valid email address to receive messages. 1H2O3 may contact you by telephone to assist you as a member or in connection with transactions if you give us permission to call you. In addition, 1H2O3 may send you an SMS message or mail to provide you with customer support or information about products and features that may be of interest to you. You can update your contact preferences in your account settings.
Some 1H2O3 messages are related to services and are mandatory for members. Examples of messages related to the services include: an email address confirmation, a welcome email when registering your account, an order notification, and communications with the 1H2O3 support team. You cannot disable the receipt of messages from 1H2O3 related to the services unless you close your account.
1H2O3 may also send you messages relating to certain features or your activity on the Site or Applications. 1H2O3 may send you news or updates regarding changes to our Site, Applications, or services. From time to time, we may develop new types of messages and share them with you to give you information about our services. Members will essentially receive these messages via email or instant notification via Applications, but you can choose to disable the receipt of different types of messages via settings on your account or mobile device.
1H2O3 offers optional electronic newsletters. When you create an account, or choose to subscribe to a newsletter, you will receive newsletters from us. Newsletters are made available to both members and non-members. Members can subscribe or unsubscribe from optional newsletters in the account settings or by following the instructions contained in the newsletter emails. Non-members can subscribe by providing an email address, which will be used by 1H2O3 only for these newsletters. Non-members may unsubscribe from a newsletter by following the instructions in the newsletter emails.
A contact import feature is available to help you locate and connect with your friends and contacts who may be 1H2O3 members (see Article Tracking). If someone from your contact list is not yet a member, you can invite them to register on 1H2O3, in which case an email will be sent to them on your behalf. Email invitation recipients can disable the receipt of future invitations by following the instructions in the email invitation message. You can only send an invitation to someone if they have given their consent to receive it.
1H2O3 is both a sales and community platform. We offer several features that allow members to connect and communicate within public or semi-public spaces, such as Forums and Teams. We ask that you exercise common sense and judgment when posting messages on these community spaces or sharing your personal information with others on the Site and Applications. Keep in mind that any personal information you submit may be read, collected, or used by others, or may be used to send you unsolicited messages. Generally speaking, 1H2O3 does not delete content published on community spaces, and your messages can remain public after your account is closed. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to publish on community spaces via the Site and Applications.
Another 1H2O3 member may subscribe to your public activity on the Site to receive updates, for example to be notified when you add an article to your Public Favourites. You may choose to make certain activities private via your account settings on the Site. If a member has started tracking your activity, you have the option to block that member through the Site if you do not want to share your updates with the person concerned.
Use, sharing and disclosure of information
We respect your privacy. 1H2O3 will not disclose your name, email address or other personal information to third parties without your consent, except as provided in this policy.

1H2O3 limits its employees’ access to your personal information. Only those persons who we believe that they reasonably need this information to provide you with products or services or to carry out their activities may have access to this information.
Please refer to our Request for Information Regulations for more information on how 1H2O3 responds to requests for information or inquiries about members of the 1H2O3 community.

In such cases, 1H2O3 may disclose a name, address, country, telephone number, email address and company name.
1H2O3 is affiliated with many companies with which it works closely. These companies may offer promotions (including email promotions) or sell items or services to you through 1H2O3’s services. 1H2O3 may also provide services or sell products jointly with affiliated companies. . When an affiliate is involved in your transaction, we may share transaction information with the affiliate for the purpose of facilitating your transaction.
1H2O3 may share demographic information with business partners, but such information will always be aggregated and anonymous so as not to reveal personally identifiable information.
1H2O3 may engage third party companies and persons (e. g. payment processing companies, consulting firms, analysis and security providers) to assist us in providing our services. These third parties have limited access to your information for the sole purpose of performing these tasks on our behalf and are required, vis-à-vis 1H2O3, not to disclose or use your information for any other purpose.
We can only speak on our behalf; these rules do not apply to third party practices that 1H2O3 does not own or control, or to individuals not employed or managed by 1H2O3.

1H2O3 encrypts sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. Generally speaking, 1H2O3 follows industry standards in practice to protect personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and after receipt by 1H2O3. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. 1H2O3 offers optional advanced security settings for members, such as two-step validation during login, SSL for the entire site, and logon history; you can activate these options in your account settings.
