PRIVACY PRINCIPLES

Your privacy is important to Hart Vida & Partners (“HV&Partners” or “us”, “our” or “we”). This online Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect, share, use and protect users’ (“you” or “your”) personal information when they visit or interact with this Internet website, well as use of any related websites that link to this Privacy Policy, and further as well as any related applications, mobile platforms, services, tools, modules, remote services and/or servers (collectively, the “Website”) that are operated by, under the control of, or otherwise for the direct benefit of HV&Partners.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully as it is binding between you and HV&Partners, and is subject to change without notice, at our sole discretion. Please refer to www.hvandpartners.com/privacy for updates to this Privacy Policy, which will be posted from time to time.

By accessing the Website, you hereby agree to be bound by all terms and conditions set forth in this Privacy Policy, as well as the terms and conditions set forth in Website Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement (“Agreement”) provided here: www.hvandpartners.com/terms. If you do not agree and/or do not comply with any of these terms and conditions, you are not permitted to access the Website, nor to use any of the content provided on the Website.

1. GENERAL INFORMATION

By accessing and using the Website you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all users of the Website.

Throughout this Privacy Policy, the term “personal information” describes information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. HV&Partners does not consider personal information to include information that has been made anonymous or aggregated so that it can no longer be used, whether in combination with other information or otherwise, to identify a specific person.

2. INFORMATION COLLECTED BY HV&PARTNERS

HV&Partners collects personal information that you submit to the Website, for example, when you submit comments using the online contact form provided by the Website. The personal information that you submit to us may, for example, include your name, your contact information, your employer name and your address.

HV&Partners may also collect information about the way you interact with the Website. This may include, but is not limited to, device ID, device type, machine ID, geo-location information, computer and connection information, present and former actions taken using the Website, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the Website, IP address, MAC address, standard web log information, and any telephone number you provide us or from which you may call or otherwise contact us.

HV&Partners may also obtain information from or about you in other ways. For example, we may verify personal information with a service provider or combine your information with additional information collected from other third parties or sources, as authorized and permitted by law.

When you use the Website, you may receive one or more cookies, which are small files containing a string of characters that are placed on your device and uniquely identify your browser. HV&Partners may use cookies to improve the quality of its services by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, and/or to customize your experience. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some portions of the Website may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

3. HOW HV&PARTNERS USES THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS

The primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, efficient and customized experience. You acknowledge and agree that HV&Partners may use the information collected to: • provide, test, or enhance the functionality of the Website; • resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems with the Website; • prevent, detect and investigate potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce our Terms and Conditions; • customize, measure and improve our Website and advertising thereof; • contact you tell you about our services and those of our corporate family, targeted marketing and promotional offers; • compare information for accuracy and verify it with third parties; and/or comply with applicable laws; and/or • share the information with other business entities, should HV&Partners plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity or sell assets. Should such a combination occur, HV&Partners will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your personal information.

4. STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Your information is stored on servers located in the United States. HV&Partners treats data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you should know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, although HV&Partners works very hard to protect your privacy, HV&Partners does not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

5. CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 entitles California customers to request information concerning whether a business has disclosed Personal Information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. California customers who wish to request further information about our compliance with this law or have questions or concerns about our privacy practices and policies may contact us at the contact details provided below to request such information.

6. CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT OF 1998 (COPPA)

Consistent with the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), HV&Partners does not, and will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18 without requiring parental consent. Any person who provides their personal information through the Website represents that they are 18 years of age or older.

7. THIRD PARTIES

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information collected from you by HV&Partners. If you disclose your information to others, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. HV&Partners does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. HV&Partners encourages you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
