Introduction
This privacy notice aims to inform you about how we collect and process any information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information. It tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.
We are committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information.
We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, and hope that you reciprocate.
Our policy complies with UK law accordingly implemented, including that required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regards to the processing and control of your personal data. We do this now, by requesting that you read the information provided at
http://www.knowyourprivacyrights.org
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.

    We do not process data on a large scale, therefore we have not appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
    If you have any questions about this privacy notice, including any requests to exercise your legal rights, please contact us at this e-mail address: support@hqriskman.com.

      We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you. We have collated these into groups as follows:
      Your identity includes information such as first name, last name, title, date of birth, and other identifiers that you may have provided at some time.
      Your contact information includes information such as billing address, delivery address, email address, telephone numbers and any other information you have given to us for the purpose of communication or meeting.
      We do not process any financial or sensitive data (Please do not send us any financial or sensitive data).
      Technical data includes you internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website.
      We may aggregate anonymous data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Anonymous data is data that does not identify you as an individual. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal information in law because it does not reveal your identity.
      For example, we may aggregate profile data to assess interest in a product or service.
      However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal information so that it can identify you in any way, we treat the combined data as personal information and it will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.

        Special personal information is data about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data.
        It also includes information about criminal convictions and offences.
        We do not collect any special personal information about you (Please do not send us any special personal information).

          Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform that contract. In that case, we may have to stop providing a service to you. If so, we will notify you of this at the time.

          The bases on which we process information about you
          The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
          If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
          If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.

            When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.
            In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.
            We may use it in order to:
              We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.
              We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.

                Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.
                Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies.
                If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.
                We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
                You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us support@hqriskman.com. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.

                  We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.
                  Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
                    For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
                          Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
                          For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
                          This may include your personal information.

                          Specific uses of information you provide to us
                            If you complain about any of the content on our website, we shall investigate your complaint.

                                    Re-marketing involves placing a cookie on your computer when you browse our website in order to be able to serve to you an advert for our products or services when you visit some other website.
                                    We may use a third party to provide us with re-marketing services from time to time. If so, then if you have consented to our use of cookies, you may see advertisements for our products and services on other websites.

                                                    Whenever information is transferred between us, you can check that it is done so using SSL by looking for a closed padlock symbol or other trust mark in your browser’s URL bar or toolbar.

                                                      If a dispute is not settled then we hope you will agree to attempt to resolve it by engaging in good faith with us in a process of mediation or arbitration.
