HDN (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates https://hdn.org (the “Site”). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site. We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Information Collection And Use.
HDN collects data from you, through our interactions with you and through our site. You provide some of this data directly, and we get some of it by collecting data about your interactions, use and experiences with our products. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with HDN and the choices that you make, including your privacy settings and the products and features that you use. We also obtain data about you from third parties. You have choices when it comes to the technology you use and the data you share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you can decline.
Many of our features require some personal data to provide you with a service. If you choose not to provide data necessary to provide you with a feature, you cannot use that service or feature.
Likewise, where we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you, and you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the contract; or if this relates to an existing service you’re using, we may have to suspend or cancel it. We will notify you if this is the case at the time. Where providing the data is optional, and you choose not to share personal data, features like personalization that use such data will not work for you.
HDN uses the data we collect to provide you rich, interactive experiences. In particular, we use data to: ● Provide our services, which includes updating, securing and troubleshooting, as well as providing support. It also includes sharing data, when it is required to provide the service or carry out the transactions you request; ● Improve and develop our services; ● Personalize our services and make recommendations; and ● Advertise and market to you, which includes sending promotional communications, targeting advertising and presenting you relevant offers.
We also use the data to operate our business, which includes analyzing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, developing our workforce and doing research. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of HDN services) or obtain from third parties to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience, to make informed business decisions and for other legitimate purposes.
Reasons we share personal data.
We share your personal data with your consent or to complete any transaction or provide any services you have requested or authorized. We also share data with HDN-controlled affiliates and subsidiaries; with vendors working on our behalf; when required by law or to respond to legal process; to protect our customers; to protect lives; to maintain the security of our services; and to protect HDN’s and its customers’ rights and property.
How to access and control your personal data.
You can also make choices about HDN’s collection and use of your data. You can control your personal data that HDN has obtained, and exercise your data protection rights, by contacting HDN at firstname.lastname@example.org.
