The statements contained herein apply to your visits to any of our websites or online access points such as widgets and mobile applications operated by HME (collectively, the “Site”), which include www.hme.com and www.clearcom.com.

While HME does not generally require that you provide us with personally identifiable information in order to visit and use the Site, in order to participate in some activities it will be necessary for you to provide this information.

2. Collection of Information: Cookies; Personal Information.

When you visit the Site, HME servers automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, including but not limited to your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested. We do not treat this data as personally identifiable information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, HME only uses this data in aggregate form to understand visitor traffic patterns through the Site for the purposes of enhancing its usability. We do not permit limited third parties to place cookies through the Site that may collect information about a consumer’s online activities over time and across different websites when he or she uses our website.

The Site stores “cookies” in order to be able to make the use of the Site more convenient. “Cookies” are small files stored on your computer with the aid of your browser. If you wish, you can prevent the storing of “cookies” on your computer through appropriate browser settings. Please note that this might restrict the performance and function range of our offering.

We do not use technology that recognizes a “do-not-track” signal from your web browser.

Additionally, HME may ask you to provide "personal information," meaning individually identifiable information such as your e-mail address, name, mailing address, telephone number, fax number or persistent identifier (such as a customer number held in a cookie) associated with individually identifiable information, to enable you to participate in contests, to complete a registration form or to order products and services using the Site. HME may combine the information you provide on the Site with other information we collect from you offline so that we can more effectively tailor the Site, our products and services and our offerings to you. If you provide HME with personal information, you have the right, on reasonable prior notice, to inspect, change, amend or delete such information. Instructions on how to update personal information will be given at the point of data collection.

Unless you instruct us otherwise, HME will provide you information about products, services, promotions, contests or other activities or offerings that may be of interest to you. You can instruct us whether or not you wish to be contacted by e-mail request.

HME may share your personal information with other parties: (a) with your consent; (b) as may be required by law or court order; (c) if they are persons or companies with whom HME contracts to carry out the operations of the Site or our business; (d) if the disclosure is done as part of a purchase, transfer or sale of services or assets; or (e) under exigent circumstances, to protect the personal safety or property of our users, the public or ourselves.

3. Security

HME takes steps to maintain the security of your personal information and prevent unauthorized access to it through the use of appropriate technology and internal procedures, but HME cannot guarantee that unauthorized access will never occur.

5. Consent to Processing.

By providing personal information to HME, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to the collection, transfer, processing and storage of such information outside of your country of residence where data protection standards may differ from those in your country of residence.

6. Links.

The Site may contain links to other Internet sites on the World Wide Web. HME provides such links for your convenience only, and HME is not responsible for the content of any website linked to or from the Site.

Links from the Site to any other website do not mean that HME approves of, endorses or recommends that website. HME disclaims all warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy, legality, reliability or validity of any content on any other website.

7. California Privacy Rights

Residents of California have the right under California law to request from any company conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. If, however, the company has a privacy policy that gives either an opt-out or opt-in choice for use of your personal information by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

HME qualifies for the alternative option. We have a comprehensive privacy statement, and you may opt-out regarding the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes by sending us an e-mail so stating. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

HME reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time, so please re-visit this page as often as you wish. In case of any material change, we will make a notation near the "Privacy Policy" link on the home page of the Site. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective at the time they are posted to the Site, and your continued use of this Site after posting will constitute acceptance of, and agreement to be bound by, those changes.
