Privacy Policy

Effective Date: March 20, 2017

Hugh Wood Inc. and its majority-owned subsidiaries (“HWI,” “we,” “our,” “us”) are committed to protecting the privacy of the users (“you,” “your”) of this site (“Website”). We collect personally identifiable information about you only with your permission.

Collection of personal information: In some cases, such as to participate in surveys, apply for employment or to contact us through our Website, we ask you for personal information. The information collected is related to the purpose, and includes your name, contact information and (if applying for employment) relevant information about your qualifications.

 

Security: We will use appropriate, commercially reasonable safeguards to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information. We will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information against (a) accidental or unlawful destruction, (b) accidental loss and (c) unauthorized alteration, disclosure or access. Any data we collect may be transferred internationally throughout Hugh Wood Inc. for the purposes for which it was collected from towerswatson.com and its respective subdomains.

 

Online tracking: Hugh Wood Inc. collects information during your visit to a Hugh Wood Inc. website through the use of online tracking technology. Hugh Wood Inc. may use online tracking technologies to collect information about your visits to Hugh Wood Inc. websites. These are small electronic signals embedded in web content and are ordinarily not visible to users. This tracking technology enables Hugh Wood Inc. to track pages and content accessed and viewed by users on Hugh Wood Inc. websites. The use of these technologies also helps Hugh Wood Inc. provide you with a positive experience when you browse our websites, and it also helps refine our content and personalize your experience. Hugh Wood Inc. does not respond to Do Not Track signals.

 

Customization: Some areas of the Website can be customized according to user preferences. We use individual preferences to deliver custom content online and analyze aggregate preferences in order to improve site quality.

 

Publication orders: If a user orders a publication, their personal information will be used to fulfil the order and may be shared with third parties involved in fulfilling the order (a printer, for instance).

 

Email: If you send an email message to us, we will use your email address and other information you provide to respond to your request.

 

Surveys: The information we collect in online surveys is used for internal research purposes. In general, we do not divulge individual responses to surveys except for participant names. Exceptions to this policy are noted when users access particular surveys. On occasion, we may share responses with a cosponsor that works with us to analyze the data; in this case, we expect the cosponsor to maintain the same level of confidentiality and security as employed by Hugh Wood Inc.

 

Third parties: We do not sell or share personal information with third parties for their own separate use. Rather, data may be shared with third parties retained by Hugh Wood Inc. for purposes of fulfilling their obligations to Hugh Wood Inc. only.

Accessing and updating: If your personal information changes or if you no longer wish to receive a service, please let the Webmaster know by emailing webmaster@hughwood.com and we will correct, update or remove your details. You are entitled to see the information held about you. If you wish to do this, please contact us.

 

Modification: This privacy policy is subject to change. All changes will be posted on this Website and shall apply to information provided on or after the date of posting.
