Information HIC Collects from You
Active information collection
Like many other websites, we actively collect information from our visitors both by asking specific questions on this Website and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail. Some of the information that you submit through this Website may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.).
Passive information collection
As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected from the website (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Like most website operators, HIC tracks IP addresses, use both session and persistent cookies, and assigns Internet tags. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on this Website and collects operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems, and Internet service providers. We passively collect information from this Website to understand what areas of this Website are most popular, which areas may require improvement, and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve this Website. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.
How HIC uses your information
HIC uses your personal information that is collected from this Website to enhance the operation of this Website and allow you to use all of its features. HIC may contact you about new features or products in which it believes you may be interested. HIC may disclose your personal information to the reputable vendors that assist us in processing information or operating this Website. These vendors are restricted from using the information for any purpose other than helping us to provide products and services. HIC may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, online traffic patterns and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. HIC also will disclose any information that it is required to disclose by law or by an appropriate government authority.
Choices you have about how HIC treats your information
We strive to provide you with as many choices and as much control as possible regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
You may send us an e-mail message addressed to the Web Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 876 906 2105-8, to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. To protect your privacy, we will only respond to e-mail messages that you send to us by responding to that same e-mail account unless you provide us with an alternative means to communicate with you. Should you elect to have your information deleted, we will also delete your user account.
If you do not wish us to share your personal information with unaffiliated or non-agent third parties, please tell the Web Coordinator at email@example.com. You may also opt out of receiving marketing messages from HIC by notifying us at the same address.
How HIC protects your information
We work hard to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases, including the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, which provides a level of security and privacy for all data sent over the Internet. The SSL connection method provides a mechanism for determining whether the data has been altered in transit. HIC also protects information by using an Internet firewall. The Internet firewall is a security mechanism that allows us to restrict access to our network from the Internet, allowing approved traffic in and out according to HIC’s web security plan.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If you have access to password-protected features, never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off of this Website before you leave your computer.
This Website contains links to other Websites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you. We cannot control these third party Websites, which may collect personal information from you. When you follow a link and leave this Website, you do so at your own risk.
