Information Collection and Use
HGEN collects information from our members at several different points on our
website. HGEN is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site. We
will not sell, share, or rent this information to others. HGEN may share site
user profiles to advertisers in much the same way that magazines provide subscriber
information. Member names or identities are never tied to the general information
provided to advertisers. HGEN may release information to comply with valid legal
requirements such as a law or regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court

Registration & Membership
To use most of the features on this website, a member must first complete the
registration form and pay the required membership fee posted at the time via
a valid credit card, bank card, check or money order. During registration, a
member is required to provide certain contact information (such as name and
e-mail address). This information is used to contact the member with information
regarding the Site and his/her membership. We also require members to provide
certain other information (such as occupation, geographic location) so we can
continue to better serve them in accordance with the goals of this Site.
In the same fashion as most standard website servers, we use log files. This
includes IP (internet protocol) addresses, browser type, ISP (internet service
provider), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number
of clicks. These files are used to analyze trends, administer the Site, track
member's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information
for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable
Sharing - Credit Card Processors
Retail establishments, including websites, utilize third party credit card processing
firms to bill their customers for purchases of goods or services. These credit
card processors are prohibited from using personally identifiable information
except for the purpose of such billing. Accordingly, they do not retain, share,
store or use personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
This Site contains links to other web sites. Please be aware that HGEN is not
responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. If you link from
our Site to any other site, we encourage you to read the privacy statement of
that other site. This Privacy and Security Statement applies solely to information
collected by this Site.
HGEN takes every reasonable precaution to protect our members' information.
When you submit sensitive information via the Site, your information is protected
both online and offline. When our registration form asks members to enter their
credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the
best encryption software in the industry, Secure Socket Layer (SSL).
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also
do everything in our power to protect member information offline. All of our
members' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is
restricted in our offices and the facilities of our web hosting provider, HGENOnLine.com.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job, e.g., a billing
clerk or a customer service representative, are granted access to personally
identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are promptly notified of
changes to our security and privacy practices. Lastly, the servers in which
we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We make every reasonable effort to prevent the alteration, theft, loss or misuse
of our members' information by others. However, please remain cognizant that
there is always some risk in transmitting information over the Internet.
Communication from the Site
We send all new members a welcoming e-mail to verify password and member name.
You agree that HGEN may send electronic mail to you for the purpose of advising
you of changes or additions to this Site, as well as apprising you of any of
HGENs events, products, services or opportunities, or, at HGENs
discretion, the events, products, services or opportunities from members of
HGEN, or a third party, or for such other purpose(s) as HGEN deems appropriate.

member information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent
notice on our website and we will send an e-mail to members notifying them of
