Privacy Policy

HKM Direct Market Communications Inc. (HKM) is sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet and is committed to protecting your privacy on our Web sites. HKM takes reasonable precautions to keep all information obtained from our online visitors secure against unauthorized access and use and we periodically review our security measures.

In general, you can visit HKM on the Web to access information while remaining anonymous and not revealing any personal information. There are times, however, that we will ask you to provide certain information (such as your name and e-mail address) so that we may understand you better and provide you with information on any new products or services in which you may be interested.

Information We Gather
The type of information we gather online is summarized into three general categories. We have established the following guidelines to explain the way in which we use information gathered from visitors to our Web site and how we use it:

Registration Information
Forms you fill out to interact with our business may request that you give us sensitive information such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address or telephone number. Whenever that is the case, HKM will take commercially reasonable steps to establish a secure connection with your Web browser. This personal identifying information will not be sold, rented or shared with third parties for telemarketing or other purposes unrelated to our business. We will use it to provide services you request, and communicate with you regarding goods and services offered by our company. We will disclose personal identifying information to our affiliates, partners and vendors only as necessary to provide the goods and services which you have requested from us.

Cookies
A cookie is an entry in a text file or folder on your hard drive, which retains information regarding your visit to our site so that it can be read by our Web server. The only personal information our cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. Our cookies cannot read data from your computer. We use cookies when you visit our site, so our Web server can recognize you and remember your areas of interest and other information you have entered at our site during the current or previous visits. If you are concerned about information contained in your cookie, you may delete the file(s) at the end of each browser session. View your browser’s help file for additional information on cookies.

General Tracking Information
We keep track of the pages visited by each user of our site. Our Web server can automatically collect some information about you when you request pages from our server, including your IP address. Your IP address is a number that is used by Internet servers to uniquely identify your computer so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you. We aggregate this data with data regarding the pages visited by other users, in order to track overall visitor traffic patterns. We use this information to improve our site by making it more responsive to the needs and preferences of our users. This information does not identify you personally.

Security Information
We understand that our customers are concerned about security on the Internet, and are committed to providing a secure, friendly site which customers other interested persons can visit and utilize without undue concern over security. Our Web server is designed for Internet commerce, and employs industry standard methods of protecting the security of information received from and sent to visitors to our site. We also employ industry standard methods to shield our web server and its data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We limit access to your personal identifying information to those employees or other persons who we believe need to view that information in order to provide our goods or services to you or otherwise perform their job functions. However, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. Therefore, we do not warrant or ensure the security of any information sent to us online.

Children’s Policy
Our site is not intended for use by children. We do not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. If you are a minor, you are authorized to use our site only with the active assistance of a parent, guardian or other adult.

Legal Disclosure
We will divulge your private information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law or in the event disclosure is reasonably necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, actual fraud, potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. If served with a subpoena, search warrant, or court order, we may be compelled to provide the required information. We are not obligated to provide you with advance or other notice of the existence of the subpoena, search warrant or court order, or of our compliance.

Our site may provide links to third party Web sites as an added convenience to the user.
