If you have any questions about this process, please contact Human Resources at 1-800-733-8613.
2. Uses of Information Collected.
We may share Contact Data or Demographic Data with our Email Marketing Provider or use it to email you information about HBK or our products or services, or promotional material, or to contact you when necessary. We may use your Financial Data to verify your qualifications for certain products or services and to bill you for products and services. We may share Location Data with our Analytics and Conversion Tracking Provider. We may use your Demographic Data to customize and tailor your experience on the Site, displaying content that may interest you according to your preferences.
3. User Choice Regarding Collection, Use and Distribution of Personal Information.

For those who are registered to use the site for specialized services or to purchase products, you must promptly notify us if your credit card, user name or password is lost, stolen or used without permission.

6. Protection for Children.
We do not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If at any time in the future we plan to collect personally identifiable information from children under 13, such collection and use, to the extent applicable, shall, when required, be done in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and appropriate consent from the child’s parent or guardian will be sought where required by COPPA. When we become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

In order to access your rights under the CCPA to access data, and or request deletion, described in this policy, you must fill out the Personal Data Request Form or call HBK at 1-800-733-8613.
Only you, the consumer, or a person registered with the secretary of state authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable CCPA request related to your personal information. You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child.
The verifiable consumer request must:
