1. Collection of Information
Certain applications on the HK Phil Website may require users to register or to provide personal information in order to make a commercial transaction, or to subscribe to a newsletter. Such personal information is not shared or sold to third parties. To better understand the needs of our Website users, we may also request demographic information. Entry of such information is optional and if you choose not to enter such information, you can still access and use the site. If we request demographic information, we will not share information about you as an individual with any other entity. If we do share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.
2. Mailing Lists
If you provide your e-mail address, the HK Phil may periodically contact you with special offers, updated information, and new services. Any e-mails sent to you by the HK Phil offer you the option to be removed from the e-mail mailing list.
Selected applications on our web site allow visitors to subscribe to our newsletter by providing their names and addresses to the HK Phil. If you provide the HK Phil with your mailing address or telephone number, the HK Phil, in addition to providing you with the HK Philnewsletter, may also use this information to alert you to updated information and new services. If you wish to be removed from the mailing list, you may do so by contacting the HK Phil directly. (See the 'Contact us' section below).
3. Information to third parties
The HK Phil may occasionally present a special contest or promotion on hkpo.com that is sponsored by another company. To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share that information with the sponsor(s), we will provide a statement to that effect.
4. Financial information
The HK Phil will protect any personal financial information that you share with us. If you make a purchase on hkphil.org, we will use your credit number only to process your payment and will not use it for marketing purposes. For reasons of security, credit card information is not stored on our Web server. We will retain order information for our records, but this information is never shared with third parties.
We do not solicit personal information from children. Sites specifically geared toward children will not request any personal or contact information.
