We respect your personal privacy and will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the information you submit to the website remains private and, except as set forth herein, is used only for the purposes outlined within the website. HMI tracks and collects general information regarding the use of this website. Information included in Google Analytics, such as which pages are visited, the length of time visitors stay on the website, and the browser visitors use is collected in aggregate and not applied to specific visitors. Such aggregate information may be shared to help us determine how the website is used and what can be done to make it more useful. 

HMI also uses cookies. A “cookie” is a piece of data that is stored on your computer and that is tied to certain non-identifying information about you. HMI may store cookies (or similar types of files) on your computer’s hard drive in order to track and target your interests and preferences. We also use this non-identifying information to customize advertising/marketing information, databases, and website material and to otherwise improve your user experience on the website. If you object to this practice, please consult your browser’s documentation for instructions on erasing or blocking cookies. We recommend that you allow cookies to be stored on your computer, however, as they may be needed to properly use the website.

HMI has commercially reasonable security measures in place to protect the personal information you submit to the website. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information and data stored on our systems. While no computer system or server is completely secure, we believe the measures we implement reduce security problems.  

Notwithstanding the foregoing, HMI cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. When you communicate with HMI electronically or otherwise submit your personal information, your communication is not necessarily secure and is subject to all of the risks of communication, such as unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors that may compromise the security of personal information at any time. HMI assumes no responsibility for the security of any personal information you submit. HMI reserves the right to update or otherwise alter our security practices if and when we deem appropriate.  

You may use the HMI website without providing any personal information. However, you must provide personal information if you choose to complete a contact form.
