Privacy Policy

HfS Research takes data security seriously. We use appropriate technologies and procedures to protect personal information. Our information security policies and procedures are closely aligned to widely accepted international standards and are reviewed regularly and updated as necessary to meet business needs, changes in technology, and regulatory requirements. Where we can improve, we will. Our current policy includes the following:

 

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

 

We will use your information to acknowledge/answer your enquiry. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.

 

Unless you ask us not to, we will contact you via email in the future to tell you about new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

 

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out from future contact at any time. by emailing us at [email protected]

 

Security 

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both on and offline.

 

Wherever we collect sensitive information (e.g.credit card data) it is encrypted and transmitted a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in yourr web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the web page address.

 

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers where we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

 

HfS uses HTTPS for encrypted access to our website. The HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means with a HTTPS connection all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. This means that even if somebody managed to break into the connection, they would not be able to decrypt any of the data which passes between you and the website.

Our privacy policy is regularly reviewed and updated all changes will be posted on this page.
