You can visit the public portion of our site without the need to register or reveal any personal information about you or your company.
As you navigate through the Website and read our communications, HMG may also use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain non-personal information, including:
Your browser type and operating system;
Your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which is the number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet and that can sometimes be used to derive your general geographic area;
Other unique identifiers, including mobile device identification numbers;
Websites you visited before and after visiting the Website;
Pages you view and links you click on within the Website;
Information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other technologies;
Information about your interactions with email messages, such as the links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded; and

How Long Do We Retain Your Information?
We will retain the any information you choose to provide to us until the earlier of: (i) you asking us to delete the information; (ii) our decision to cease using our existing data providers; or (iii) we decide that the value in retaining the data is outweighed by the costs of retaining it.
How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors.
HMG expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers that may accessible through the Website, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. HMG is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties or other websites that may be linked to from the Website. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information to a website operated by a third party.
A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used to collect information about your activity on the Website. For example, when someone visits a page within the Website, a cookie is placed on the User’s machine (if the user accepts cookies) or is read if the User has visited the Website previously. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users to the Website. Some of the cookies we use may be flash cookies or Adobe cookies and, depending on your browser, these cookies may not normally be deleted when your cookies are deleted.

Pixel tags are very small images or small pieces of data embedded in images, also known as “web beacons” or “clear GIFs,” that can recognize cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, a description of the page where the pixel tag is placed, and similar information from your computer or device.
“Do Not Track” Settings
Some browsers offer “do not track” settings that enable users to restrict the personal information that websites collect. Since HMG does not collect personal information other than personal information that you voluntarily and expressly provide, and does not share your personal information with third party external websites other than as described above, your use of “do not track” settings will not affect the functionality of the Website, and the Website will not override your “do not track” preferences.
