Legal Notice – Privacy Statement

We regard your Privacy as important and information we collect from you, where you chose to provide it to us, is to enable us to send you information about products and services in which you register an interest. The information may be provided to other companies in the HRC-Group (HRC) for this purpose. By providing us with your information you consent to us processing it for the purposes outlined above. We will not pass it on to any third party outside HRC, except to fulfill our orders or to supply a request.

More detailed information on the policy of HRC websites:

Browsing the website

When you visit any site registered and operated by HRC to browse information it contains, you do so anonymously unless you choose to provide us with information about yourself. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Web site for example reading pages or viewing images, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. Information gathered automatically is used for only two purposes: site management and, in the case of suspected unauthorised activity, for law enforcement and possible criminal prosecution (See Security Notice under Terms of Use). The HRC websites automatically log visitor information from which summary statistics are created. We use the summary statistics to help us make our site more useful to visitors, such as assessing what information is of most and least interest to visitors, and for other purposes such as determining the site’s technical design specifications and identifying system performance or problem areas.

The following are representative of the types of information automatically collected and stored about your visit:

  • The Internet domain and Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you access our website;
  • the type of Internet browser and the operating system of the computer you use to access our site;
  • the date and time you visit our site;
  • the pages you visit on our site;
  • if you linked to our website from another website, the address of that website;
  • and, if you linked to our website from a search website, the address of that website and the search term you used.

Sending e-mails to HRC via HRCs websites

If you choose to submit a question or comment by e-mail, and provide us with your name and e-mail or postal address, we will use that information only to respond to your question or comment and to make contact with you with regard to the services on our site for which you have expressed interest. Unless you indicate otherwise, we collect your information only for the purpose of answering your question or dealing with your comment and to enable HRC to contact you with regard to the services on our site for which you have expressed interest. We will not share your name, e-mail, or postal address with any third party, other than as described in our Security Notice under Terms of Use. Under no circumstances will we give your name, e-mail, or postal address to any private organisation, commercial or otherwise, except to fulfill our orders or to supply a request.

Completing forms on the HRC websites

If you choose to provide us with information via a form, we will use that information only to complete the request specified by that form and to make contact with you with regard to the services on our site for which you have expressed interest. If you choose to complete any HRC form, we will collect your information by an automated process. Unless you indicate otherwise on the form we collect your information only for the purpose of completing the request you have specified and to enable HRC to contact you with regard to the services on our site for which you have expressed interest. We will not share your information with any third party, other than as described in our Security Notice under Terms of Use. Unless otherwise specifically stated on a particular form, we will under no circumstances give your information to any private organisation, commercial or otherwise, except to fulfill our orders or to supply a request. We will retain the information provided by you only for so long as is reasonably appropriate under the applicable legislation.

Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 % secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information HRC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. HRC’s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond HRC’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
