COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION


“HCS” collects information necessary for the functioning of essential & functional cookies. 


There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by “HCS”. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses.

USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION


“HCS” collects and uses your personal information to operate the “HCS” Web site and deliver the services you have requested. 
“HCS” does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. All third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide statistical services to “HCS”, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.


“HCS” does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.


“HCS” keeps track of the Web site and pages our customers visit within “HCS”, in order to determine what “HCS” services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within “HCS” to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.


“HCS” Web sites 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 “HCS” or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of “HCS”; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of “HCS”, or the public.


USE OF COOKIES


The “HCS” Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalise 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 personalise “HCS” pages, or register with the “HCS” site or services, a cookie helps “HCS” 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 “HCS” Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the “HCS” features that you customised.  This is used as an example only, “HCS” does not currently offer any subscription or membership services.


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 “HCS” services or Web site you visit.


SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION


“HCS” secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. “HCS” secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Should personal information (such as a credit card number) be transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT


“HCS” will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. “HCS” encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how “HCS” is protecting your information.
