- WHAT INFORMATION HART REPRO COLLECTS FROM YOU
Hart Repro may collect two (2) types of information about you: Personal and Non-Personal.
- “Personal Information.” Personal Information refers to information that lets Hart Repro know the specifics of who you are and which may be used to identify, contact or locate you (e.g. name, mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address). Hart Repro may collect Personal Information when you use the Hart Repro Properties including, without limitation, setting up account information, filling out surveys, corresponding with Hart, or otherwise volunteering information about yourself.
- “Non-Personal Information.” Non-Personal Information refers to information that, by itself, does not identify you as a specific individual (e.g. demographic information or website visitations). Hart Repro may collect Non-Personal Information through any of the methods discussed above as well as automatically through use of industry standard technologies described further below.
- HOW HART REPRO COLLECTS YOUR INFORMATION
The Personal Information practices set forth apply to all Hart’s customers worldwide.
- Registration. Prior to using one or more of the Hart Repro Properties, Hart Repro may require certain Personal Information and Non-Personal Information to create an individual account (“Account”) or to enable features or functionality of the Hart Repro Properties. Failure to provide all required information required by Hart Repro may prevent access to any or all Hart Repro Properties, and failure to maintain accurate information may result in suspension or termination of access to any or all Hart Repro Properties.
- Information Collected Through Technology. While you are able to visit the Hart Repro Site and remain anonymous, Hart Repro or its third party service providers may still collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the Hart Repro Properties (e.g. your Internet browser, operating system, IP address, connection speed, and the domain name of your Internet service provider). Such information may be gathered by the following methods:
(a) Cookies. Cookies, including local shared objects, are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive which work by assigning to your computer a unique number that has no meaning outside of the Hart Repro Site. Cookies do not generally contain any Personal Information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually configure your browser to prevent this.

(b) IP Address. You may visit many areas of the Hart Repro Site anonymously without the need to become a registered User. Even in such cases, Hart Repro may collect IP addresses automatically. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin Services with an Internet services provider. Each time you access the Hart Repro Site and each time you request one of Hart’s pages, the server logs your IP address.
(c) Web Beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in web pages and e-mails. Hart Repro may use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that Hart Repro sends to Users to determine whether they have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is Personal Information.
(d) Tracking Content Usage. If you use the Hart Repro Services and you post materials including, without limitation, text, logos, artwork, graphics, pictures, videos, advertisements, sound and other related intellectual property contained in such materials (collectively, “Content”) to your website or to a third party website, Hart Repro tracks and captures Non-Personal Information associated with User accounts and the use of Content.
