Security Measures

We protect the personal information you share with us. For example, if you make an online purchase with us, we use SSL protocol to encrypt your credit card number. Access to your personal information is limited to people who need it to do their job. Authorised third-party agents may also need access to some of your personal information. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company, same thing with authorised repair centres. We only provide third-party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. We do not otherwise share your personal information with third-parties, unless you have granted us permission to do so. We may collect and possibly share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Hypertec terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

Data Retention

Hypertec will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.

Linked Web Sites

We provide links to third-party sites. Since we do not control these Web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these (and all) third-party sites.

Cookies

Most Hypertec Web sites use cookies. Cookies help us provide a better user experience by measuring which Web site areas are of greatest interest. Hypertec also uses cookies when you register for one of our Web programs. In this situation, a cookie will store useful information that enables our Web site to remember you when you return. Hypertec can only read cookies from Hypertec Web sites.

If you choose to disable cookies in your browser, you can still access most of our Web sites. Some Web sites will not allow you to complete certain activities if cookies are disabled. For example, our consumer ecommerce site uses session cookies and persistent cookies to process transactions. If you do not accept cookies, the associated shopping bag will not work and you would not be able to order.

We may display advertisements from third parties. Third-party ad-serving companies control which ads are shown. These ad-serving companies may use their own cookies to collect non-personally identifiable information from you. Advertisers use this information to target the ads and measure their impact.

We use multiple third parties to monitor web traffic, statistics, advertisement ‘click-through’, and other activities on Hypertec sites.
