We know that you may be concerned about the manner in which your personal information is used, and we appreciate your trust that we will exercise every caution to maintain your privacy. By using HAPSweb.org, you accept the practices described in the following Privacy Notice.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE MIGHT RECEIVE AND STORE.

Information You Give Us: We can receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests and communicating with you.

Automatic Information: We might receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. We might use "cookies," to collect certain types of information when your Web browser accesses HAPSweb.org. Cookie technology allows a web site server to place information about a consumer's visits to the site on the consumer's computer in a text file readable only to that web site server. The cookie assigns each consumer's computer a unique identifier so that the consumer can be recognized in later visits to the site. There are utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with the best service if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools do exist.

Computer Logging Information: We may log,collect and analyze information including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password to HAPSweb.org, computer, referer, and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; purchase and/or membership history. This information does not save or generate personal information, but helps us in providing services to you.

DOES HAPSWEB.ORG SHARE THE INFORMATION IT RECEIVES?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with businesses, professional organizations, and vendors that offer services and sales that are related to Human Anatomy and Physiology or related teaching materials. Postal and electronic mailing lists of members may be sold to these companies or organizations. These companies and organizations do not have direct access to our database. If you do not want your personal information disclosed to these companies or organizations for the stated purposes, please contact us at 800-448-HAPS. Our agreements with these companies or organizations restrict them from re-distributing or selling them to others or other unauthorized use.

Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Business Transfers: HAPS, Inc. is a non-profit corporation that operates the HAPSweb.org web site. In the unlikely event that HAPS, Inc., or substantially all of its assets are acquired by another entity, customer information will be one of the transferred assets. Any acquiring entity would be required by law to also be a non-profit entity.

Protection of HAPS and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe in good faith that release is required to comply with the law, or that it is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of HAPSweb.org, our users, or others. This includes, for example, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

HOW SECURE IS INFORMATION ABOUT ME?

We protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. Also, HAPSWeb.org does not allow you to transmit your login information using plain text, which can be easily read if intercepted. HAPSWeb.org employs a Message-Digest v.5 (MD5) hashing to obscure both your username and password. In this way, your password cannot be recovered even if lost.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer and close the browser window completely. Do not answer yes when asked if you want the password stored if it is a shared computer. Additionally, HAPSweb.org has security measures in place to prevent unauthorized access to its databases. If you believe the information we have about you may be inaccurate, you may check on the information and make necessary corrections or comments by calling our customer service number at 800-448-HAPS.
