Privacy and Security Statement
You should be aware that most commercial web sites use what is known as "cookie" technology. A cookie is a non-executable piece of data that a web site can send to a user's browser when the user links to that site. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the web site is then able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract personable information about you. Most browsers provide a simple procedure that will enable you to control whether you want to receive cookies by notifying you when a web site is about to deposit a file.
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
This web site will take every precaution to protect users' information.
When users enter sensitive information online (such as credit card number and/or Social Insurance Number), that information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just " surfing ".
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect information off-line. Access to all of our user's information will be restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) will be granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees will be kept up to date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as at any time new policies are added, our employees will be notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we use to store personally identifiable information will be kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
Some information collected on this site is, by its nature, transmitted to third parties. Credit Card information, for example, must be sent to a processing centre in order for billing to proceed. Additionally, servers may not necessarily under the direct control of Hymas Investment Management; these functions may be contracted to trusted third parties. Such third parties may in turn contract certain functions to other organizations. A list of third parties dealt with directly by Hymas Investment Management Inc. will be provided on written (not electronically transmitted) request to our offices.
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in connection with issues relating to their account via e-mail or telephone.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes, or if a user no longer desires to use our services, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us.
By using this web site you consent to the collection and use of your personal information by Hymas Investment Management Inc., its subscribers, affiliates, partners and associated businesses.
We welcome your questions and comments about privacy. Please contact us with your concerns or to be advised of changes in this policy.
