For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.

What is personal information?
“Personal Information” for the purposes of privacy law is information about an identifiable individual, such as their name, address, telephone number, and email address. Personal Information does not include aggregated information that is anonymous, such as the type of browser you are using, or other non-personally identifiable information.
What information does HMI collect and why?
In addition, we may also collect search queries that are typed into the Site’s search engine and retain them in anonymous form. We may collect the web addresses of third party sites you visit – also known as “browsing history.” We may also use Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can connect to the Internet or email. IP addresses are generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet, rather than unique to the particular user’s computer. We may collect or use these to diagnose problems with our server or report aggregate information to improve the function of the Site. HMI, our subsidiary and affiliate companies and any third party as we may designate, may use, update, disclose or sell such non-personally identifiable aggregate information to third parties.
In addition, we may use third-party advertising and marketing companies to publish advertisements on the Site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable aggregated information compiled from your visits to the Site, so that these companies may serve advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you.

HMI may disclose your Personal Information to our subsidiary and affiliate companies and to third parties who provide services or perform functions on our behalf, including: support services, website services, contest administrators, and processors of credit card or online payments.
