HSV HAB (“HSV HAB”) operates www.hsvhab.org/ and may operate other websites. It is HSV HAB’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, HSV HAB collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. HSV HAB’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how HSV HAB’s visitors use its website. From time to time, HSV HAB may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
HSV HAB also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.hsvhab.org/ blogs/sites. HSV HAB only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to HSV HAB’s websites choose to interact with HSV HAB in ways that require HSV HAB to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HSV HAB gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.hsvhab.org/ to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with HSV HAB are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, HSV HAB collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with HSV HAB. HSV HAB does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
HSV HAB may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. HSV HAB may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, HSV HAB does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
HSV HAB discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HSV HAB’s behalf or to provide services available at HSV HAB’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using HSV HAB’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. HSV HAB will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, HSV HAB discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when HSV HAB believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HSV HAB, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an HSV HAB website and have supplied your email address, HSV HAB may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with HSV HAB and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. HSV HAB takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If HSV HAB, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that HSV HAB goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of HSV HAB may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Privacy Promise Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, HSV HAB may change its Privacy Promise from time to time, and in HSV HAB’s sole discretion. HSV HAB encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Promise. If you have a www.hsvhab.org/ account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Promise will constitute your acceptance of such change.
