Data Integrity & Data Security

HMSI does not process personal information that it receives for any purpose other than to provide online knowledge, training and learning across the organization.
HMSI has taken steps to ensure that any information it collects is secure by, among other things, limiting the number of people who have physical access to the database servers, utilizing electronic security systems, and using password protections which guard against unauthorized access.
HMSI may, however, aggregate data that it obtains from Users to analyze trends, to gather data to benchmark best practices, and to monitor, improve and refine the functionality of the system.

Cookies, Web Beacons & Session IDs

“Cookies” are information files which your web browser places on your computer when you visit a Web site. Web beacons, also known as clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs, are small image files that HMSI may place on Web pages and within Web-based email newsletters that we may send. Working in conjunction with cookies, Web beacons allow HMSI to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page of a Web site and the number of times those pages are displayed. We may also use Web beacons to let us know how many people opened a Web-based email newsletter. HMSI uses cookies, Web beacons and session IDs to authenticate a User as he or she navigates various parts of the sites. Cookies and session IDs may also be used to automate data entry functions. HMSI does not obtain personal information via cookies or session IDs, and does not link any data collected through cookies or session IDs to any personal information.
The use of cookies is an industry standard, and they are currently used on most major Web sites. It is possible to adjust your Web browser preferences to alert you when a cookie is sent to your hard drive, or to refuse cookies altogether. While HMSI does not require you to use cookies, keep in mind that certain sites and services will not function properly if you set your browser to refuse all cookies.
