Our Commitment to Privacy
We believe that protecting the privacy and confidentiality of consumer and client employee information is very important. We value your business and the trust you have placed in us. Keeping current with (GLBA), (HIPAA), the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and all state & federal regulations regarding consumer data, THG has continued to enhance our privacy procedures regarding how we handle our client’s consumer and employee information.
THG will protect consumer and client employee information on our end; however, it is essential for you to protect yourself against unauthorized access to information on your side. Take simple measures as signing off and logging out when finished using any computer; keep your passwords in a secure location; and never share your passwords with any third parties.
The Hibbert Group will only collect consumer and client employee information that is voluntarily submitted during voluntary “opt-in” to the company by its clients, purchased on behalf of its clients, or procured on behalf of its clients through marketing activities. Data is only collected if “opt-in” is selected, and is limited to the use(s) mentioned when opting in. The Hibbert Group will not knowingly collect consumer information from individuals under the age of 18 without verification of appropriate parental consent as performed by The Hibbert Group’s client. All consumer information collected online and offline is subject to “opt-in” and “opt-out” mechanisms as defined by our clients. All relevant communication contains at least one mechanism to “opt-out.” The Hibbert Group’s customer defines business rules for database and list maintenance relating to the management of consumer marketing programs/information. Consumer and client employee information is collected through, but not limited to, data file transmissions from The Hibbert Group’s client or their business partner, websites, e-mail campaigns, returned mail / Business Reply Cards (BRCs), consumer inquiry by mail or phone, and coupon rebate programs.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. We implement technical and organization measures to protect your Personal Data and follow data retention practices in line with applicable law. These measures can include physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. We also limit access to your Personal Data to only employees, agents and representatives who need to know. The Hibbert Group’s data transfer security is maintained through a combination of several data encryption methods and authenticity certificate programs including SSH, PGP and of SSL security certificates. SSH utilizes Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) which allows for increased security when transferring files over the Internet. The Hibbert Group has liability in cases of onward transfer of data to third parties. The Hibbert Group will take reasonable steps to permit individuals access to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.
The Hibbert Group will offer EU and Swiss individuals whose personal information has been transferred to us the opportunity to choose whether the personal information it has received is to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. An individual may opt-out of such uses of their personal information by contacting us at QualityAssurance@hibbertgroup.com.
