1. INFORMATION HA INTERNATIONAL COLLECTS FROM YOU

Active Information Collection
Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from our visitors by permitting you to communicate directly with HA International via forms and e-mail. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.). For example, HA International collects personally identifiable information when you fill out the employment opportunities form or the contact form on this site. In addition, HA International occasionally asks visitors to complete surveys that it uses for research purposes.

Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through this site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Like most web site operators, we use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of computer data that is delivered to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive.

We use cookies to:

  1. Remind us of who you are and to access any of your information required that is stored on our computers to deliver to you a better and more personalized service.
  2. Estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing a HA International Web site may be given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage, and to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior.
  3. Measure certain traffic patterns, which areas of HA International's websites you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this information to better personalize the content on our site.

2. HOW HA INTERNATIONAL USES YOUR INFORMATION

HA International uses your personal information to enhance the operation of this site and allow you to use all of its features. HA International may disclose your personal information to service providers that assist us in processing information. HA International also will disclose any information when required by any local, state, or federal legal authority; when required to legally protect and defend the rights or property of HA International; when HA International believes it appropriate to protect its members, users, employees or the public; and when required to enforce or defend the conditions of HA International’s Terms of Use.


3. CHOICES YOU HAVE ABOUT HOW HA INTERNATIONAL USES YOUR INFORMATION

We strive to provide you with appropriate choices and control regarding the personal information you provide to us. If you would like to have your personal information deleted from our servers, please send us an email at websupport@ha-international.com. If you do not wish us to collect cookies, you may set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, please note that some parts of this site may then be inaccessible or not function properly.


4. HOW HA INTERNATIONAL PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION

We work hard to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases, including the use of firewalls. Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, access to visitor data is restricted to employees of HA International or its affiliated companies who have a specific need to access information. This site may contain links to other Web sites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you. We cannot control these third party sites, which may collect personal information from you. When you follow a link and leave this site, you do so at your own risk.
