Privacy Policy

Effective Date: December 1, 2020

Harris Freeman & Co., Inc. is committed to protecting the privacy and security of the information we collect and to being transparent about the ways in which we collect and process your information. This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit the websites that link to this Privacy Policy (the “Services”).

The information we collect

When you use our Services, we automatically collect certain information that you provide directly to us:

  • Contact Information such as your name, alias, maiden name, email address, phone number or address
  • Profile Information and Survey Responses, which may include your interests, preferences, physical characteristics or description, feedback, educational or professional information, employment, employment history
  • Correspondence you have with us

We also collect certain information automatically as you use the services, such as information about [your device, including information about your web browser, operating system, IP address, device and advertising identifiers, internet service provider, time zone setting, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device]. As you use the Services, we also collect [information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to our site, and information about how you interact with our site]. Additionally, we may receive the categories of information described above from other sources, such as third-party services and organizations. For example, if you access any social media or similar services through the Services to login or to share information about your experience with our Services with others, we may collect information from those third-party services. We may aggregate or de-identify the information described above and once aggregated or de-identified, such data is not subject to this Privacy Policy.

How we use your information

We use and otherwise process each of the categories of information identified above for the following business purposes:

  • To communicate with you
  • To personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs)
  • To improve our website and the Services (we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you)
  • In accordance with the preferences you have provided to us, to provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or Services via email, SMS or other means.
  • To coordinate with trusted third parties who assist us in providing the Services, operating our website or otherwise conducting our business, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential (your Device Information is used to learn how you browse and interact with the Services, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns)

When do we share your information

We are committed to maintaining your trust, and we want you to understand when and with whom we may share the information we collect.

  • Third-party service providers. We may share your information with third parties for a variety of business purposes, such as contacting you. In that regard, we use HubSpot to collect and manager certain visitor data—you can read more about how HubSpot handles your information here: https://legal.hubspot.com/product-privacy-policy. We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use our websites— you can read more about how Google handles your information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.
  • Affiliates. We may share your information with our corporate affiliates.
  • Business transfers. We may share your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a business or other business combination.
  • Legal purposes. We may share your information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information, or to otherwise protect our rights.
  • With your consent. We may share information for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect the information or pursuant to your consent.

We will not sell your information to third parties without your consent. As described above, we do permit third parties to collect certain information through our Services on our behalf and we may disclose such information to third parties for business purposes as described in this Privacy Policy.

How we use cookies and other advertising technology

When you use our Services, we and our third-party advertising partners use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other similar technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to collect information from your browser or device. By using the Services, you consent to our use of cookies and similar technologies.

The cookies we use fall in two broad categories: essential and advertising. The following types of cookies are used on our Services:

  • Essential cookies. These cookies enable you to use our Services and track the performance of our websites. These cookies are essential to enable you to browse our Services and use certain features. Disabling them may prevent you from using certain parts of the Services. These cookies also help keep our Services safe and secure.
  • Preference cookies. These cookies store information such as your preferred country and language selection and website preferences. Without these cookies, our Services may not be able to remember certain choices you’ve previously made or personalize your browsing experience by providing you with relevant information. These cookies can also be used to recognize your device so that you do not have to provide the same information more than once.
  • Business transfers. We may share your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a business or other business combination.
  • Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how you use our Services such as which pages you visit regularly. These cookies are used to provide you with a high-quality experience by doing things such as tracking page load, site response times, and error messages.

You may be able to refuse or disable cookies by adjusting your web browser settings. Some browsers have options that allow the visitor to control whether the browser will accept cookies, reject cookies, or notify the visitor each time a cookie is sent. Because each web browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your web browser (typically in the “help” section). In addition, some of our third-party partners are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies. To learn more, please click here or http://www.aboutads.info/.

Note that because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and transmit “do-not-track” signals, we currently do not take action in response to these signals.

About your rights

You may be entitled, in accordance with applicable law, to request access to and/or a copy of certain information we have about you or that we delete certain information we have about you, or request more information about our privacy practices. Requests should be submitted in writing as set out below. You will be required to verify your identity before we are able to fulfill your request.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights and choices, although some of the functionality and features available on our website may change or no longer be available to you. By using the Services and providing us with information, you understand and agree that we may transfer and store your information on servers located outside your resident jurisdiction. To the extent you are a resident of a country other than the United States, you consent to the transfer of such data to the United States for processing by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We do not collect information from children

In accordance with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without parental consent. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, upon receipt of notice from the child or the child’s parent or guardian, we will delete that child’s personal information from our systems.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page, and/or update the Privacy Policy modification date above.
