Your Choices Regarding Your Information

Modifying Your Account Information

You may modify your account information at any time by logging into your online or in-app account. If you wish to cancel your account, please email us at support@hubtech.io. Please note that in some cases we may retain certain information about you as required by law, or for legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law.

Access, Correction and Deletion Rights

Hub will comply with an individual's requests regarding access, correction, and/or deletion of the personal data it stores in accordance with applicable law.

Location Information

We request permission for our app's collection of precise location from your device (whether your own device or otherwise) per the permission system used by your mobile and/or web operating system. If you initially permit the collection of this information, you can later disable it by changing the location settings on your mobile device. However, you will not be able to use the Hub app if you disable our collection of precise location data. Additionally, disabling our collection of precise location from your device will not limit our ability to derive approximate location from your IP address.

If you initially permit the collection of this information, iOS users can later disable it by changing the contacts settings on your mobile device. Some Android devices may not provide such a setting.

Contact us

If you have any questions about this Policy, please contact us at support@hubtech.io.

Getting "early access" to Hub is defined as signing up with a valid email address for a spot in Hub's waitlist queue. You can improve your spot in the queue each time you refer someone who signs up with a valid email address. There is no limitation on the number of referrals you can make and the number of positions you can move in line. Registrants will be notified first, based on their current position in line and will be given an invitation to access Hub's account opening application process. Early access to Hub's waitlist queue should in no way be construed as confirmation that an account has been opened or will even be approved for opening.
