Our Commitment to Customer Privacy
Hard Hat Industry Solutions Inc (HHIS) respects customers' rights regarding the disclosure of their information. Our commitment to our customers' privacy is set forth in our privacy document, Privacy Information and Your Choices.

Our Commitment to Online Privacy
HHIS also understands the specific concerns of Internet users about what information is being collected and how it is being collected and used on Internet websites. Accordingly, we have extended our commitment above to users of our site, rr2.hardhatis.com (hereinafter, the "website"). This commitment is described below and sets forth how we handle your personal information, and what steps HHIS takes to protect your privacy when it is collected by us on our website.

Information Gathered by HHIS
HHIS gathers information about visitors to our website to improve the caliber of online information and services offered. There are two forms of data that HHIS collects on our website: Site Visitorship Data and Personal Information Data. How we collect this information and what we do with it is discussed below.
Site Visitorship Data
HHIS routinely gathers data on website activity. This information, "Site Visitorship Data," is collected on an aggregate basis on public areas of our website, or on an individual basis on the password protected areas of our website that require website visitors to logon using an access code (e.g., userID and/or password). Site Visitorship Data may include information such as:
  • How many people visit our website
  • The pages they visit and the features they use
  • How long they stay on our website
  • The domain name of the Internet website from which visitors are connecting
Site Visitorship Data is generally gathered through the use of cookies and pixel tags.

A "cookie" is a small piece of information that an Internet site sends to a visitor's computer. In some cases, it is stored on the visitor's hard drive. Cookies can save the visitor's name, access codes, screen preferences, the pages of the site viewed by the visitor, and the advertisements viewed or clicked by the visitor. Visitors may decline receipt of the Internet cookie by using the appropriate feature of their Web software, if available. Declining the Internet cookie may, however, interfere with a visitor's ability to view certain content in our website.

A "pixel tag" is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our website and is used to track an individual user's activity on the password protected areas of our website. A pixel tag is also known as a "clear gif."

Personal Information Data
HHIS collects Personal Information Data such as name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc. that website visitors provide when they complete any online form, application, or survey.

Security Standards
HHIS works hard to ensure that our systems are secure and that they meet industry standards.
