If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

HTB LCL does or may share personally identifiable information about you under the following circumstances:

  • In the course of operating it may be necessary or appropriate for us to provide access to your personal information to others such as our service providers, contractors and select vendors so that we can operate the Service. Where practical, we seek to obtain confidentiality agreements that are consistent with this policy and that limit others' use or disclosure of the information you have shared.
  • We may share your personal information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, to establish or exercise our legal rights or, defend against legal claims and if in our judgment in such circumstances disclosure is required or appropriate.

If there is ever a change to how HTB LCL uses or intends to use personal information, we will post that change to this policy and, if the new policy is materially less restrictive than this policy, we will seek your consent.


Confidentiality and Security

No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make efforts to ensure security on our systems.

We use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you.

Your HTB LCL Account Information is password-protected.

In certain areas, HTB LCL may use industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. If HTB LCL learns of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using this web site or providing personal information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of this site. HTB LCL may post a notice on our web site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view the web site. HTB LCL may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us using the contact us page.

You can delete your account by making a request to the site administrator via the contact us page; however, please note that some personal information, primarily your contact information, may remain in HTB LCL’s records to the extent necessary to protect HTB LCL 's legal interests or document compliance with regulatory requirements.
