This information can include: your device type, mobile network connectivity, IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Website addresses. This information is used by Hema Maps for the operation of the Services, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Hema Maps Services.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Hema Maps public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Hema Maps does not read any of your private online communications.

Hema Maps encourages you to review the privacy statements of Websites or third party service providers you choose to link to from the Hema Maps Services so that you can understand how those Websites collect, use and share your information. Hema Maps is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Websites outside of the Hema Maps and Hema Maps family of Websites or Services.

Use of your Personal Information

Hema Maps collects and uses your personal information to operate the Services you have requested and to improve our products or Services. Hema Maps also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Hema Maps and its affiliates. Hema Maps may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Hema Maps does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Hema Maps may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Hema Maps may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Hema Maps, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Hema Maps does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations.

Hema Maps keeps track of the Services our customers visit within Hema Maps Service offering, in order to determine which Hema Maps services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and other services within Hema Maps to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Hema Maps Services will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Hema Maps or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Hema Maps; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Hema Maps, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Hema Maps Services use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Hema Maps pages, or register with Hema Maps site or services, a cookie helps Hema Maps to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Hema Maps Service, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Hema Maps features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Hema Maps services or Websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Hema Maps secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Hema Maps secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Hema Maps will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Hema Maps encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Hema Maps is protecting your information.
