What information do we collect about you?
We collect information about you when you subscribe to our services (e.g. our newsletter mailing list), make a donation or place an order for items such as Conference places. We also collect information when you voluntarily complete customer surveys or provide feedback.
As with most websites, the HRI website maintains an activity log which records your IP address and other information which may or may not be supplied by your browser.  This includes the type and version of the browser you are using, the operating system you use, the screen resolution at which you viewed the site and the address of third party site if you navigated to our site via a link.
This information is used solely to help us improve our delivery of the services on the site.

How will we use the information about you?
We collect information about you in order to provide you with services, process orders and donations, and, if you agree, to contact you about HRI activities we think may be of interest to you.
You do not need to supply any personal information in order to view this website. Information volunteered via online forms e.g the sign up function for our mailing list will not be used for any purpose other than that for which it was supplied, nor will it ever be passed on to third parties.
HRI also collects your name and email address if you use the contact form on the site to send us a message. This information will only be used to respond to your message, and will not be stored.
Please note that messages sent using the contact form are sent by unencrypted email and thus may not be secure and remain confidential while being transmitted to us.
