We do not collect or maintain personally identifiable information for marketing, advertising, or resale purposes, or share your personally identifiable information with any other company or organization, except to the extent such other company or organization is acting as our agent for processing or mailing purposes to assist us in providing information that you have requested.

From time to time, our web site may be configured to collect domain information as part of our analysis of the use of this site. This data enables us to become more familiar with which users visit our site, how often they visit and what parts of the site they visit most often. HSHC uses this information to improve our web site. No personally identifiable information is gathered in this process. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.

These files are used for site registration and customization the next time you visit us. You should note that cookies cannot read data off of your hard drive. Your web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser.

Storage and Transfer of Information
HSHC, or in some cases its agents, may store the personally identifiable data collected via this site in an electronic database. HSHC and its agents may also exchange such data with each other or with you over the Internet or over intranet systems for the purposes of processing the data, sending information to you in response to your request, or otherwise carrying out the services described above. We may also release your personally identifiable data in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or applicable law or regulation. In such circumstances we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of the personally identifying information that they may receive.
While HSHC makes every reasonable effort to protect the personally identifiable data collected through its web site, please be aware that there is always some risk involved when submitting data over the Internet. We cannot guarantee that our web site is 100% safe from illegal tampering or “hacking.” Any data transmitted over the Internet may be at risk; however, once it is received at HSHC and entered into HSHC’s database, it has the same protection that HSHC extends to its own confidential information.
