Why we collect personal information
hive collects and uses your personal information to give you superior
customer service, to provide you with convenient access to our products and
services, and to make a wider range available to you. In addition, at your
option, your personal information can be used to keep you up to date on the
latest product announcements, special offers, and other information we think

How we collect personal information
We collect information about you in a few ways. For example, we might ask
for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us to make a
purchase or register on-line for an instant purchase.
To save you time and make our web services even easier to use, some areas of
the hive website allow you to create a "hive ID" using your personal
information. Here's how it works: Simply fill out a brief profile-your name,
phone number, and email address-then choose a password for security. The system
saves your information and assigns you a personal ID based on your e-mail address.
Next time you order something from hivemodern.com you can simply enter your
email address and password-the system will automatically look up the
information it needs.

personal information in accordance with hive's policies.
