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 order. If we are legally compelled to disclose information about you to a third party, we will notify you unless doing so would violate a court order.

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.
 
Log Files
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 information.

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.

Links
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.

SECURITY
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.

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 HGEN’s events, products, services or opportunities, or, at HGEN’s 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.
 
Notification of Changes
If we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect 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 the change.
