Collection of Your Personal Information
HPAH collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. This information is collected on an opt-in basis only, through various web forms throughout the site. HPAH also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by HPAH. This information can include, but is not limited to: your IP address, geographical location, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used by HPAH for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the HPAH website. HPAH encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to visit from HPAH so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. HPAH is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the HPAH and the HPAH family of websites.
Use of Your Personal Information
HPAH collects and uses your personal information to operate the HPAH website and deliver the services you have requested. HPAH also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from HPAH and its affiliates. HPAH may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. HPAH does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties. HPAH may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, HPAH may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to HPAH, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information. HPAH does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent. HPAH keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within HPAH, in order to determine what HPAH services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within HPAH to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. HPAH websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on HPAH or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of HPAH; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of HPAH or the public.
The HPAH website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize HPAH pages or register with HPAH site or services, a cookie helps HPAH to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same HPAH website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the HPAH features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the HPAH services or websites you visit.
Security of Your Personal Information
HPAH secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. HPAH secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to This Statement
HPAH will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. HPAH encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how HPAH is protecting your information.
