We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our website.
This policy applies to your use of any web pages in the hnbc.org.uk, hnboc.org.uk and hnboc.co.uk domains.
Personal Identification Information
We will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party.
If you do provide us with personal information, we may use it to provide you with information about our services. If you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments. We may file your comments for future reference, or we may discard the information after we have reviewed it.
We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the HNBC website.
Non-Personal Identification Information
We may collect non-personal identification information through the use of "cookie" technology and/or IP address tracking. Non-personal identification information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our site-such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information. Our system may gather information about the areas you visit and search terms you utilize on our sites and about the links you may select from within our site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.
We use such information to administer the site and, in the aggregate, to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our sites. This way we know which areas of our sites are popular with our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our site.
The Use of Cookie Technology
Links To Other Sites
Users may find contents on our site that link to the sites and services of third parties. In many cases, the links represent cooperative projects or are mutual links established with persons or entities connected with us. Although we initially visit the sites or services that are so linked, we do not control the contents or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.
Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have taken careful measures to secure both your information and our physical premises. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Our secure server software encrypts information, ensuring that all Internet transactions remain private (unless sent by an unsecured means, such as e-mail).
Access To/Correction of Information
If you would like to review any personal information we have retained about you in our database, please send us an e-mail request for this information at [email protected]. To help us address your request, please specify which information you wish to review. Once you have reviewed this information, at your request we will correct personal information about you that you state is erroneous. To request such a correction, please send an e-mail to [email protected].
If you "opt-in" to receive information from HNBC, you can change your mind later. If at any time you would like to stop receiving such information or opt-out of a feature, you can let us know by sending an e-mail stating your preference to [email protected].
