Introduction

We respect your privacy, and we also seek to protect your data. Kindly be informed that we will treat your data in strict confidence and by the requirements of the general data protection regulation (GDPR) on the protection of natural persons concerning the processing of personal data on the free movement of such data. The law became effective on the 25th of May 2018 and repealed directive 95/46/EC.

What kind of personuserata is collected?

Personal data is any information that identifies you as an individual or relates to an identifiable individual. HMS collects personal data in various ways, such as the following:

* from the website itself – when a query is sent through the contact form;

* from yourself either through digital mediums such as email correspondence or else through non-digital mediums;

* from the order form found on our website;

* other sources include social media platforms, publicly accessible data, and third parties.

* analytics data collected by third parties

* infrastructure provider keeps records of all visitors

When we collect personal data from third parties, we shall inform you about the source of such personal data and the categories of personal data we collect and process. The latter information shall not be provided to you if we are specifically prohibited from disclosing such activity according to the law.

It is very important to understand what data is specifically collected and, more importantly, which categories of personal data. HMS requires you to receive your contact details, such as your name, surname, and email address, when you contact us through the contact form found on our website to reply to your message.

HMS shall also collect personal data when you fill in our order form on our website. Indeed, we would collect your contact details, such as your name, surname, email address, mailing address, and phone number; your billing information, such as your billing address. Kindly be aware that this information is collected to process and register your order for certain products or services.

We would also collect personal data automatically through the website itself. The contact form on our website would record the information about your browsing session, your IP address, and the time of your ordering. Our cookies policy, found further hereunder, explains it clearly.

When you provide us with personal data concerning other persons rather than yourself, we would be of the understanding that you have the necessary authority from the said persons to provide us with their data.

Why do we collect personal data?

It is very important to understand that we do not request personal data concerning your person other than those we need to satisfy legal requirements or the data you provide us when you request our services.

Apart from the data collected to provide you with the service requested, we would also collect legally required data to manage and keep for a certain period. Any data that we think is in our legitimate interests.

What are the purpose and the legal basis of data processing?

Contact details about yourself are collected to open a record of yourself in our system. The data is processed based on our legitimate interest (our interest is to have accurate data) and a contractual or technical necessity. Contact details and communication data are also processed to manage our business relationship with you.

IP addresses are collected to monitor the usage and traffic on our website.

The purpose for which we collect your data is varied and includes the following:

* to fulfill your order;

* send you an order confirmation;

* send you the requested product or information;

* reply to customer service requests;

* keep open communication with you;

* site optimization and application troubleshooting;

* reply to your queries and concerns.

Hence, as you can notice, data would be processed to fulfill our obligation to you.

Kindly note that if data is processed for a new purpose other than the abovementioned, we shall immediately inform you.

We will not use the information provided for any other commercial purpose than ours.

It is also important to highlight that we cannot provide you with the service you require if certain data is not provided to us.

What happens when processing is based on consent?

When HMS needs to process certain personal data and cannot find any legal ground for the said processing, we shall request your consent before proceeding with the data processing. We shall never assume that we have your consent. In this respect, we shall obtain your consent clearly and affirmatively and request your specific permission unambiguously. You shall have the right to withdraw your consent any time you want, and the withdrawal shall occur in the same manner the consent has been given.

When you withdraw your consent, we can continue to process your data if we determine another legal ground to process the data apart from your consent.

Indeed, we might intercept mail to detect and prevent any crime, identify the correct recipients, or ensure correspondence is dealt with our staff is away from the office or after a staff member’s resignation.

In the case of emails, we may reject, delay or remove content from emails that have a nature, content, or attachments that may disrupt our systems or because they may pose security issues such as viruses.

We may also filter out emails containing certain content because the content is offensive or the email is unwanted or considered spam. Unfortunately, this may result in “innocent” emails being affected in certain circumstances, but we try to reduce such occurrences.

Most email messages from HMS have been automatically scanned. They should be free from viruses, malicious code, scripts, or other executable attachments. However, the accuracy of scanning products is not guaranteed. The recipient(s) should therefore carry out any checks they deem appropriate in this respect. We cannot be held responsible for loss of or damage to data or other damages resulting from such actions out of our control. All email messages from us are sent in good faith. We cannot be held responsible for any modification by any virus or other third party after they have been sent. All messages are intended for the recipient only. Suppose you are not the intended recipient, specifical member’sified as the address on the email. In that case, you should delete the message and all its attachments. You are prohibited from using, reading, disclosing to any person, or acting on the information and/or its contents. You should also notify us as soon as possible of this fact.

Also, it is important to understand that data sent through electronic means, such as the internet, could be transmitted across international borders. Even if the sender and the receiver are located in the same country., HMS shall not accept any responsibility or liability for the security of your data in transit through the internet. The transfer of data from you to us can take place through other mediums, such as Whatsapp, Zoom, or Skype, which run on the internet.

Disclosure of personal data.

We do not disclose the details collected from you as a visitor to any third party unless you give us your consent to do so or in the instances indicated below.

Without prejudice to anything contained in this privacy policy, we reserve the right to disclose personal data relating to you to any third party, inside and outside the EU/EEA, if such disclosures are allowed by the GDPR or if it is necessary for the following purposes:

* to prevent, detect or suppress fraud;

* to protect and defend our rights and property or that of users of our website;

* for any purpose that may be necessary for the performance of any agreement you may have entered into with us or as may be allowed or required by or under any law;

* to comply with any legal obligation, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process; as approved or authorized by any other law; and if HMS is involved in the future in a merger, acquisition, restructuring, or sale of all or a portion of its assets. (in this case, we will notify you via email, or we shall display a prominent notice on our website to remark on any changes in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your data).

We shall only process data within the EU/EEA. Or any other non-EEA country considered by the European Commission to provide adequate protection. If, for any reason, data is transferred to countries not listed by the European Commission to have a good level of protection, we would put in place additional adequate measures apart from all the appropriate safeguards that we would implement following the GDPR.

Sharing of personal data.

Personal data shall be shared with adequate and authorized personnel of HMS and with any of our service providers who would facilitate the website’s usage. Data would only be shared to provide you with the requested service or because we have a lawful reason to share the data, which does not necessarily require your consent.

Currently, we share your data with our IT service providers, which maintain and support our IT system and website. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that such data sharing shall be restricted and under our control. We will also share data with public authorities if there is a legal obligation.

Security of personal data.

We use reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of all personal data that we process relating to you. We regularly review and enhance our technical, physical, and managerial procedures to protect your data. We make all efforts to prevent unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, modification, and unlawful destruction or accidental loss.

In this respect, kindly be informed that we have implemented security policies, rules as well as technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control. All our employees and data processors, who have access to and are associated with personal processing data, are further obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors’ data. Nevertheless, kindly be aware that the internet is not a secure medium by its very nature. Data sent via this medium can potentially be subject to unauthorized acts by third parties. Indeed, we cannot guarantee the privacy or confidentiality of any information passing over our website. As explained earlier, we shall accept no responsibility or liability for the security of your data while in transit through the internet.

Authorized third parties, or our service providers, are required by the GDPR itself to apply appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the data they shall have access to from us.

Retention period.

We shall consider the purpose for which the data shall be obtained to understand how long we can retain your personal data. Data shall only be kept for as long as it is necessary. To define the latter, we shall look at the data we have collected on you and our relationship with you.

To determine the actual retention period, we shall look to see whether any law obligates us to retain certain data for a certain period. In this case, we would keep the data for as long as that specific law says, as we have a legal obligation to do so.

Consequently, we shall ascertain whether there is any law that you could invoke against us after our professional relationship with you ends. In this case, we would look at the prescriptive period during which you could bring an action against us. We shall keep that data for all the time we deem it necessary. So that we can defend ourselves against any claims or actions by you or any other third party.

When your data is no longer needed, we shall delete it. Or, we shall anonymize it not to be able to link the data with an identifiable pevisitors’ks to third-party websites.
