HSL Privacy Policy

 

You expressly accept and give your consent that your personal data obtained in connection with your use of this site may be transferred, if permitted by applicable legislation, across international borders to server locations supporting this site (including but not limited to transfers from those locations back to the country of your location) for operating and developing this site and services, including transfers to HSLs' subcontractors or agents, as mentioned below, who perform tasks related to this site, or for the purposes of storing the data in relevant databases, which may be located in any other country.

If you place an order for a product, request a service or submit content to this site, we may need to contact you for additional information required to process or fulfil your order and/or request. Unless compelled by applicable law or administrative or judicial order, we will not provide this information to a third party without your permission, except as necessary to process your order, fulfil your requests, manage interactive customer programmes or, if you are a corporate user, enable administration of access and usage of this site by authorised personnel in your organisation.

Because HSL is committed to protecting your privacy, HSL does not engage in the practice of selling or trading personal data to other companies for any purposes.


USAGE OF SUBCONTRACTORS

We may use subcontractors to provide some products or services to you. We also may need to share your personal data with these subcontractors so that they can provide services to us. Our subcontractors are not permitted to use such personal data for any other purposes and we impose confidentiality requirements on their services.


VISITOR IDENTIFICATION - USAGE OF “COOKIES”

From time to time, information may be placed on your computer to improve this site and HSLs' services to you. This information is commonly referred to as a "cookie", which many web sites use. Cookies are pieces of data stored on your computer's hard drive or browser, and not on this site. They typically enable collection of certain information about your computer, including your internet protocol address, your computer's operating system, your browser type and the address of any referring sites.

The use of cookies provides benefits to you, such as eliminating the need for you to enter your password frequently during a session, or, where applicable, re-enter items you place in a shopping cart from visit to visit if you do not finish a transaction on an earlier visit. By showing how and when our visitors use this site the use of cookies allows HSL to continue to improve the sites. If you do not wish to receive cookies, or want to be notified of when they are placed, you may set your web browser to do so, if your browser so permits. Please understand that if cookies are turned off, you may not be able to view certain parts of this site that may enhance your visit. Some of our business partners whose content is linked to or from this site may also use cookies. However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. This site also makes use of cookies for website traffic analysis and anonymous demographic profiling.


SECURITY

HSL has endeavoured to take commercially reasonable measures to prevent unauthorised access to and improper use of your personal data submitted to HSL via your use of this site. While there are always risks associated with providing personal data, whether in person, by phone or via the internet or other technologies, and no system of technology is completely safe or "tamper"/"hacker" proof, HSL has endeavoured to take reasonable precautions which are appropriate to the nature of the information to prevent and minimise such risks in connection with your use of this site.


MINORS

HSLs' policy is to request that "minors" (the age of minors is determined by local law where you reside) do not make purchases or engage in other legal acts on this site without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, unless permitted by applicable local law.


EXTERNAL LINKS

This site may contain links to other sites. Please note that HSL is not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of any other sites. We recommend that you read the privacy policies of such sites.


CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

HSL may from time to time change this policy or change, modify or withdraw access to this site at any time with or without notice. However, if this policy is changed in a material, adverse way, HSL will post a notice advising of such change at the beginning of this policy and on this site's home page for 30 days. We recommend that you re-visit this policy from time to time to learn of any such changes to this policy.
