The HCCA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you.

Use of Cookies
The HCCA website may 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. In addition, you enable the HCCA to obtain any other cookies used on your website in conjunction with the HCCA service. 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 HCCA pages, or register with the HCCA site or services, a cookie helps HCCA 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 HCCA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the HCCA features that you customized.

Security of your Personal Information
The HCCA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We routinely scan our source code to check for weaknesses or vulnerabilities. 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 Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

Children under Thirteen
The HCCA does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website.
