“Personal Information” is information that would allow someone to identify or contact Users, including, for example, Users’ names, organizations, addresses, and email addresses. Personal Information does not include aggregated information or information about Users that, by itself, does not permit the identification of individual persons. For example, statistics about how many persons visited HCK’s Website last month is not Personal Information.
“Nonpersonally Identifiable Information” is anonymous information about Users that does not include Users’ names or contact information. Examples of such Nonpersonally Identifiable Information data would be IP addresses, browser types, and access times. HCK may use this information to customize HCK’sWebsite for Users and may not include or refer to Personal Information, such as Users’ email addresses, when using this type of data.
“Aggregated Information” refers to information HCK gathers by aggregating Nonpersonally Identifiable Information to provide summaries of use of HCK’s Websites. HCK uses Aggregated Information to show usage patterns and to do such things as negotiate with vendors of Internet services. Such Information is not linked to Users’ Personal Information.

When Users sign up as subscribers to electronic information services or blogs, HCK asks for Personal Information, such as email addresses, to allow HCK to create Users’ accounts, respond to Users’ questions, or contact Users regarding their accounts.
HCK’s Website uses a standard technology called “cookies.” Cookies are small pieces of information stored on a User’s hard drive and not on HCK’s Website.

HCK will not disclose Users’ Personal Information to third parties outside the America’s Agenda family of entities without their permission.

HCK may disclose Nonpersonally Identifiable Information and Aggregated Information about its Users, but that information does not contain Personal Information.
If law enforcement or judicial authorities require HCK to provide Personal Information concerning any Users, HCK must cooperate with the authorities if their requirement is supported with the necessary legal documentation.
Users may limit the collection and use of different elements of their Personal Information by not participating in those activities in which HCK collects Personal Information, as listed above.

HCK encourages Users to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.
