        • Sharing Information. We do not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties. We share your Personal Information only with our affiliates and service providers or as otherwise described herein in order to provide you with information regarding our services. In addition, we may disclose information we maintain, including Personal Information: (i) when required to do so by law or regulation, or may disclose such Personal Information in response to a request from a law enforcement agency or authority or any regulatory authority; (ii) to protect the integrity or security of the Site or the interests, rights, or property of HCTech; (iii) to enforce the Site’s Terms of Use; or (iv) to third parties to whom we may choose to sell or otherwise transfer some or all our business or assets. We require all third parties to respect your Personal Information and treat it in accordance with the law.

        We strive to maintain the accuracy of any Personal Information that may be collected from you, and will use our commercially reasonable efforts to respond promptly to update our database when you tell us the information in our database is not accurate. It is your responsibility to ensure that such information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you wish to make any changes to any Personal Information you have provided to us, you may do so at any time by contacting us at

        In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 6501-06 and 16 C.F.R. §§ 312.1-312.12, we do not knowingly collect information from children. By using the Site, you represent that you are not under 13 years of age.


        HCTech may reference or provide links to third-party websites. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We are not responsible for the third-party websites and you should review the privacy policies posted on such sites. Please be aware that HCTech does not control, nor are we responsible for, the privacy policies or information practices of third parties or their websites.


        Because security is important to both HCTech and you, we have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your Personal Information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

        We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected Personal Information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


        We will only retain your Personal Information for as long as reasonably necessary to provide our services or to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. This may include recording calls for regulatory or training purposes. We may retain your Personal Information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

        To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information, the purposes for which we process your Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.


        We share your Personal Information within the HC Technologies Group. This will involve transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to the US. We may also transfer your Personal Information to third parties located outside the EEA.

        Whenever we transfer your Personal Information outside of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring the following safeguard is implemented: 

        (i) the transfer your Personal Information is to a country that has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for Personal Information by the European Commission (the “EC”);
        (ii) where we use certain service providers or where we transfer Personal Information to the HCTech Group, we may use specific contracts approved by the EC which give Personal Information the same protection it has in Europe; or
        (iii) where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to Personal Information shared between Europe and the US.


        We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update this Privacy Policy, and any such modifications, alterations, or updates will be effective upon posting. In the event we modify this Privacy Policy, your continued use of the Site will signify your acceptance of the modified Privacy Policy.
