Transaction Information
When User uses HopShopGo to purchase merchandise or services from someone else; comGateway asks User to provide information related to each transaction, including the transaction amount and a brief description of the purchase. comGateway retains this information for each of User's transactions through HopShopGo. comGateway also collects the Internet address (IP address) of the computer or device User uses to access User's HopShopGo account, in order to help detect possible instances of unauthorized transactions. To facilitate customs declarations when HopShopGo couriers User's purchases to User, comGateway will disclose information of User's purchase to the relevant authorities on User's behalf. 

Additional Verification
User's HopShopGo password and mobile phone PIN are to be used when operating User's comGateway service only. User should also not disclose User's HopShopGo password except when operating User's account with HopShopGo. 

Customer Service Correspondence
If you send us correspondence, including e-mails and faxes, we retain such information in the records of your account. We will also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence from comGateway to you. We retain these records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violations of our User Agreement. We may, over time, delete these records if permitted by law.

Questionnaires, Surveys and Profile Data
From time to time, comGateway offers optional questionnaires and surveys to our Users for such purposes as collecting demographic information or assessing Users' interests and needs.

User may not share User's HopShopGo password with anyone. comGateway will never ask User to send User's password or other sensitive information to us in an e-mail, though comGateway may ask User to enter this type of information on the HopShopGo website, which will always have a URL beginning with https://www.hopshopgo.com/. The padlock icon found in most browsers will appear locked and the first characters of the website address will change from "http" to "https" if User is accessing a secure server. 

Any e-mail or other communication requesting User's password, asking User to provide sensitive account information via email, or linking to a website with a URL that does not begin with https://www.hopshopgo.com/ should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and should be reported to comGateway immediately. If User does share HopShopGo password with a third party for any reason, including because the third party has promised to provide you additional services such as account aggregation, the third party will have access to User's account and User's personal information, and User may be responsible for actions taken using User's password.

If User closes User's HopShopGo account, comGateway will mark User's account in our database as "Closed," but will keep User's account information in our database.
