The HC Web Site is a general audience site, the site is not directed at and HC does not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age.
Collection and Use of Information
When HC collects PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting the PII to us in order to register for the HC Web site. HC may also collect PII from you if you choose to participate in HC's activities like sweepstakes, contests, games, and surveys, or because you want us to furnish you with products, services, newsletters, or information or in connection with content or suggestions you submit to HC for review. Required registration PII includes first name, last name, email address, screen name, country, zip and date of birth. Phone number and mailing address are optional. We may also obtain PII from reputable third parties. This information is used for the registration and management of your account.
In addition, HC collects other non-PII information including IP address, aggregate user data, and browser type. This data is used to manage and improve the Services, track usage, and for security and monitoring purposes.
HC may from time to time also communicate with you on behalf of our marketing partners. HC will also in some instances share your PII with our approved marketing partners for marketing purposes related to specific special offers that we believe you would like to receive based upon the services that you express an interest in from us. We require all marketing partners to comply with the Federal CAN- SPAM Act and all other applicable laws. We require that each such marketing partner provide a conspicuous opt-out link for your use to remove your information from their email list. Furthermore, if you wish us not to share your email address or other personally identifiable information you may contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have consented to receive promotional materials from HC, HC may periodically use your email address to send you notifications related to the Services.
HC employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your PII. HC may share your PII with outside contractors, agents, or sponsors who help us manage our information activities (i.e., message boards, sweepstakes administration, order fulfillment, statistical analyses, data processing), or with outside contractors, agents, or sponsors who help us with administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of contest, promotions, and sweepstakes. These outside contractors may only use your PII to provide HC with a specific service and not for any other purpose without your consent. HC may also provide your PII to a third party in those instances where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfillment of such a request requires the sharing of your PII.
As described in the "Notice" section below, HC may customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on the Site, or may work with outside companies to do so. Your non-PII may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. HC prohibits these companies from sharing your information with any third party or from using it for any other purpose other than targeting advertising on the Site.
HC may aggregate PII and use it anonymously. Anonymous click stream, number of page views calculated by web beacons, and aggregated demographic information may also be shared with HC's advertisers and business partners.
There may be instances when HC may access or disclose PII or non-PII without providing you with a choice in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights of HC or our employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) to protect the safety and security of users of the Services or members of the public, including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) to comply with the law or legal process. In addition, if HC sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, HC may transfer your PII to a third party as part of that transaction.
We use session ID cookies which expire when you close your browser. These cookies make it easier for you to navigate our site. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, such as contests or surveys, will be limited.

Links to Other Sites
The Site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by HC. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that you visit which collects personally identifiable information.
The security of your PII is important to us. Information that you submit in relation to a financial transaction is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Information in our possession is maintained according to generally accepted industry standards. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. In addition, HC uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete.
Changes in this Privacy Statement
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page at our sole option.
