Your privacy is very important to HFI. We will act in a responsible manner when you provide any personal information to us as a result of your visiting our website, or in the course of HFI providing services to you. However, you may always visit our website at any time, without giving any personal information. We do not sell, disclose, transfer or otherwise provide any voluntarily provided personal information received by us, to any third party, except to process a valid transaction with HFI, such as in a credit card payment, or as may be required by applicable laws or official legal processes.

When you visit our website, we may collect "cookies", "clickstream data" or other information in the process. We gather this information in order to help us improve our website and services to you and other website users.

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Human Factors International, Inc., an Iowa corporation (USA) ("HFI") collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a "User") that visit its website (the "Website").

You understand that you have the affirmative obligation to check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes, and you hereby agree to periodically review this Privacy Policy for such changes. The continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy constitutes an acceptance of those changes.

HFI may use "cookies" to track how you use the Website. A cookie is a piece of software that a web server can store on Users' PCs and use to identify Users should they visit the Website again.

Personal Information Provided as Part of User Content
If a User includes such User's personally identifiable information as part of the User Content that such User posts to the Website, such information may be made available to any parties using the Website and/or such User Content. HFI does not edit or otherwise remove such information from User Content before it is posted on the Website.

User contact information (which may include, without limitation, a User's username and email address) may be included with any User Content that a User posts via the Website. HFI is not liable for any damages caused or incurred due to personally identifiable information made available in the foregoing manners.
Security of Information

HFI is not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures relating to the Website by any Users or third parties.
Correcting, Updating, Accessing or Removing Personal Information

This can be done by emailing a request to HFI at hfi@humanfactors.com. Additionally, you may request access to the personally identifiable information as collected by HFI by sending a request to HFI as set forth below. Please note that in certain circumstances, HFI may not be able to completely remove a User's information from its systems.
