Where we need to perform the contract services that we are about to enter into or have already entered into with you or with a Customer.
Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override the same interests.
Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
Generally, we don’t depend on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than when sending you marketing or third-party direct marketing communications via email or text message. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing communications at any time by contacting Hill Web Creations or by stating your preference to ‘unsubscribe’ in any communication you receive from us.
Both benefits and risks in any auctioning process exist in paid search, notably, click fraud. We take commercially reasonable steps to monitor our paid ad placements so that don’t fall prey to the risks of click fraud and work to prevent it where we can possibly do so per client agreement.
We do not rely on user-generated content (UGC) for creating our articles and posts. However, we do allow people to post their own reviews and comments in their own words. We do not endorse any person or brand that may have commented or be shown in a published image on our site, an off-site article, or in social media. Many times a photographer is unknown; we respect image copyrights and seek clearances when possible and within our knowledge per posted source requests.

We do not control any third parties’ tracking technologies engaged to help you or how they may be used. If you have any questions or comments about such advertisements or other targeted content to meet viewers’ needs, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
If you choose not to provide personal information
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with our business services). In such a scenario, we may have to cancel an order or service you have with us but we will notify you if this comes up.
