Effective Date: November 30, 2015
HRC Associates and its majority-owned subsidiaries (“HRC Associates,” “we,” “our,” “us”) are committed to protecting the privacy of the users (“you,” “your”) of this site (“Website”). We collect personally identifiable information about you only with your permission.
Collection of personal information: In some cases, such as to participate in surveys, apply for employment or to contact us through our Website, we ask you for personal information. The information collected is related to the purpose, and includes your name, contact information and (if applying for employment) relevant information about your qualifications.
Security: We will use appropriate, commercially reasonable safeguards to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. We will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information against (a) accidental or unlawful destruction, (b) accidental loss and (c) unauthorized alteration, disclosure or access. Any data we collect may be transferred throughout HRC Associates for the purposes for which it was collected from our website and its respective subdomains.
Online tracking: HRC Associates collects information during your visit to our website through the use of online tracking technology. HRC Associates may use online tracking technologies to collect information about your visits to HRC Associates websites. These are small electronic signals embedded in web content and are ordinarily not visible to users. This tracking technology enables HRC Associates to track pages and content accessed and viewed by users on HRC Associates websites. The use of these technologies also helps HRC Associates provide you with a positive experience when you browse our websites, and it also helps refine our content and personalize your experience. HRC Associates does not respond to Do Not Track signals.
Customization: Some areas of the Website can be customized according to user preferences. We use individual preferences to deliver custom content online and analyze aggregate preferences in order to improve site quality.
Publication orders: If a user orders a publication, their personal information will be used to fulfil the order and may be shared with third parties involved in fulfilling the order (the website provider, for instance).
Event registration: If a user registers for an event online, their personal information will be used to fulfill that request and may be shared with third parties involved with the event (a hotel, for instance).
Online job applications: Separate notices and policies are provided to prospective job applicants relating the use and processing of job applicant data.
Email: If you send an email message to us, we will use your email address and other information you provide to respond to your request.
Subscriptions: If you subscribe to one of our online publications, we use the information you provide to send you email updates. You can unsubscribe at any time by contacting our Webmaster, whose details are provided below.
Surveys: The information we collect in online surveys is used for internal research purposes. In general, we do not divulge individual responses to surveys except for participant names, unless otherwise notified. Exceptions to this policy are noted when users access particular surveys. On occasion, we may share responses with an associate or alliance member that works with us to analyze the data; in this case, we expect these parties to maintain the same level of confidentiality and security as employed by HRC Associates.
Cookies: A cookie is a text-only string of information stored on a user’s hard drive that allows a website to remember them. For general users of the site, cookies are used only during a user session (to maintain a shopping cart, for instance) and are then deleted. We do use persistent cookies to identify users who take advantage of the customization features of this Website and to save this identification between site visits.
Third parties: We do not sell or share personal information with third parties for their own separate use. Rather, data may be shared with third parties retained by HRC Associates for purposes of fulfilling their obligations to HRC Associates only.
Accessing and updating: If your personal information changes or if you no longer wish to receive a service, please let the Webmaster know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will correct, update or remove your details. You are entitled to see the information held about you. If you wish to do this, please contact us.
