HSF is committed to the privacy of your personal information. HSF adheres to the privacy principles,
set out below (the "Privacy Principles"). The Privacy Principles are based on the principles
on the OECD's Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data.
Principle 1 - Accountability
HSF is responsible for all Personal Information under its control. We are responsible for Personal information
in our possession or custody, including information that has been transferred to a third party for processing.
We will use contractual or other means to provide a comparable level of protection when the information is being
processed by a third party or where it is provided to third parties to enable us to provide services to you.
Principle 2 - Identifying Purposes
We will identify and document the purposes for which we collect, use or disclose Personal Information at or
before the time of collection. The purposes will be limited to those which are related to our operations and
which a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances. We will make a reasonable effort to
specify the identified purposes, orally or in writing, to the individual from whom the Personal Information is
collected either at the time of collection or after collection but before use. We will state the identified
purposes in such a manner that an individual can understand how the information will be used or disclosed.
Principle 3 - Consent
Personal Information will only be collected, used or disclosed with the knowledge and consent of the individual
except where inappropriate. The way in which we seek consent, including whether it is express or implied, may vary
depending upon the sensitivity of the information and the reasonable expectations of the individual. An individual
can withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by providing
written instructions to us. In certain circumstances, as permitted or required by law, we may collect, use or
disclose Personal Information without the knowledge or consent of the individual.
Principle 4 - Limiting Collection
We will limit the amount and type of Personal Information collected and retained to that which is necessary for our
identified purposes and we will only collect Personal Information by fair and lawful means.
Principle 5 - Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention
Personal Information will not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected,
except with the consent of the individual or as required by law. Personal Information will be retained only
as long as necessary to fulfill the identified purposes. We will not sell, rent or transfer any list of contacts
without the consent of all persons identified on the list, except as required by law.
Principle 6 - Accuracy
We will use our best efforts to ensure that Personal Information is as accurate, complete and up to date as is
necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. We will use our best efforts to ensure that the Personal
Information that is used on an ongoing basis, including information that is disclosed to third parties and
information that is used to make a decision about an individual, is accurate, complete and up to date.
Principle 7 - Safeguards
We will protect Personal Information with safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.
Our safeguards will protect Personal Information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure,
copying, use or modification.
Principle 8 - Individual Access
Upon written request, we will inform an individual of the existence, use and disclosure of his or her Personal
Information and we will give the individual access to that Personal Information. An individual can
challenge the accuracy and completeness of his or her Personal Information and have it amended as appropriate.
We will respond to an individual’s written request within a reasonable time (generally within 30 days).
