What We Collect
Human Kinetics Inc., and its subsidiaries (collectively HK hereafter), recognize the importance of protecting the information gathered from users in the operation of this website and takes reasonable steps to maintain the security, integrity and privacy of any information collected. Although HK employs reasonable measures in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of information through the website, you should be aware that the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from HK through this website or by e-mail cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, HK is not responsible for the security of information transmitted via the Internet. By submitting your information to HK you consent to the practices described herein.
HK collects information about individuals as provided on a voluntary basis such as during the ordering process, website registration, online courses, certification tests, conference attendance, catalog requests, surveys, or e-mail subscription requests.
Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, phone number) on bulletin boards, blogs or in chat areas of the HK site, or sites of any related companies or subsidiaries, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user’s communication, can be collected and used by third parties who are not affiliated with HK. Although HK takes every precaution possible to protect your information, by choosing to post personal information in areas that are viewable to all site visitors, such as forums and blogs, you are doing so at your own risk. Posting personal information may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are not facilitated by HK and are beyond our control.
How We Use Your Information
HK reserves the right to contact a user regarding product orders, support issues and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.
Contact information such as name, address, and e-mail, may be shared with subsidiaries of HK, and may be used by such subsidiaries to send promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from HK and/or its subsidiaries. Instructions on how to unsubscribe are included in every promotional e-mail.
Use of email addresses. HK does not rent, sell, exchange, or share e-mail addresses with third parties (i.e., any entity besides Human Kinetics, Inc. and its subsidiaries) except when individuals specifically consent to allow us to do so by checking a permission box via our website or other official HK communications.
Information or files e-mailed to software technical support or sent through the technical support request system integrated into the HK site will not be used for internal marketing and sales purposes, or be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties.
HK reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site; this analysis will sometimes be used to inform advertisers of site performance. HK will provide only anonymous, aggregated data from these analyses to third parties.
We may release account information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions; to protect the rights, property, and safety of HK’s e-commerce site, our users, or others; or to conform to the requirements of law or comply with governmental orders, court orders, or legal process served on us. If customers do not pay us for products ordered, we may submit their account information to a third-party collection agency.
Opt Out Details
Upon request, HK will allow any user to "opt out" of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally upon request, HK will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user’s request, HK will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user’s entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions. Please contact us with any opt out requests.
When information is collected, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to "opt in" to receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services, and offerings from HK and/or any third parties. More region-specific information is provided in this section.
