A cookie is a small piece of information that a website, online application, or email may save to your browser or your computer’s hard drive for use in subsequent visits to the website or online application. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive new cookies or how to disable cookies altogether. If you reject cookies, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or receive a promotion tailored to you. HYP does not control and does not guarantee the effectiveness of browser-based tools for managing cookies.
HYP may participate in interest-based or behavioral online advertising, in which event we will use commercially reasonable efforts to follow the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising of the Digital Advertising Alliance.

How does HYP protect personal information? Where applicable, HYP uses industry-standard technology in connection with the Client Services and the Site to help protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
How long does HYP retain my personal information? Personal information that we collect, access or process will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which it was collected, unless otherwise provided for under services contracts with clients or as required or authorized by law. Personal information that is no longer required to fulfil the identified purposes will be destroyed, erased or de-identified.
What are my choices concerning my personal information? Our clients are responsible for notification of purpose and for obtaining appropriate consent, to the extent required by law, when they collect personal information that is transferred to HYP. Our clients are responsible for ensuring that any commercial emails sent by them comply with applicable law. If we are instructed by our clients to transmit communications on their behalf, clients remain responsible for ensuring that recipients have consented to receiving such communications and that the information contained in the communications are accurate and complete.
**What is HYP’s policy on kids’ privacy? ** HYP and the Site and Client Services are not directed toward children and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If HYP learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personal information online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personal information we have collected from children under age 13, please contact us using the information detailed in the Contacting Us section below.
Access, objection, deletion and correction In certain jurisdictions, you may have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether your personal information is being processed, information about the purposes of that processing, and information about the recipients to whom your personal data have been or will be disclosed. You may also have the right to receive a copy of the personal data you have provided and/or request its deletion. Our users may (and should) update their profile information via the functionality of the Site.

Your California Privacy Rights If you are a California resident, California law provides you with the following rights with respect to your personal information:
Transfer of personal information to other countries In some cases, personal information that we process, including information from our users located in various countries, including in Canada, the EU and Switzerland or relative to queries or visitors to the Site may be transferred to the United States or other countries that may not have data privacy laws that provide the same protection as the countries where you reside. You understand that your personal information may therefore be transferred, processed and stored outside of your country of residence, and therefore may be available to government authorities under lawful orders and laws applicable in such foreign jurisdictions.
Right to lodge complaints We are transparent about the ways in which we collect and use personal information, and welcome your questions and concerns. If you have any concern or complaint about the way we handle your personal information, please contact us as described below. To the extent you believe we have not addressed your concerns or otherwise choose to do so, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in the country where you reside and/or in the United States.
