To receive your HMC and HHM e-mails, we require your e-mail address. Similarly, to provide you with text messaging services, we need your phone number and your provider information. So that we may provide you with additional services, we may also request your name, geographical coordinates, and telephone number. HMC and HHM does not collect any other personally identifiable information that you do not expressly provide. HMC and HHM will never sell, rent or share your personal information, including your e-mail address, with any third parties for marketing purposes without your express permission. HMC and HHM may share your personal information for the purpose of delivering our e-mail to you or as required by law.
We may also request non-personally identifiable information, such as annual income, buying preferences or age, also known as demographic and profile data, though this information is optional. We may use this data to improve our Buzz email and site and/or tailor your experience, showing you or delivering you by email content that we think might be of interest to you, and displaying content according to your preferences. We may also share this information with others, such as advertisers interested in advertising in HMC and HHM emails or on our site, in aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any other person.
In addition to collecting personal and non-personal information, HMC and HHM may also collect non-personal, aggregated information about subscribers’ use of our Buzz email and site. This information is not personally identifiable and will only be used to find out how subscribers use our Buzz email, site and services. For example, this information will tell us how often a user opens the Buzz email, how much time users spend on our site, from which other sites subscribers came, and to what other sites subscribers go. The collection of this information allows us to, among other things, prepare for traffic load demands and to efficiently deliver your emails.
Review and Access
Upon your request, we will provide you with a summary of the information we collect about you. You will have an opportunity to correct, update or modify this information.
How to Unsubscribe
You can unsubscribe from receiving HMC and HHM emails at any time. You can unsubscribe by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link in the footer of any HMC and HHM Buzz email or on the bottom of the HMC and HHM homepage and following the instructions. We, of course, do not want to see you go, but if for any reason you want to leave us and have trouble doing so please email [email protected]
If we ever send you information by email concerning new products or services that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an email address by which you may request no future notices.
Third Party Advertising
Some of the ads appearing on our Buzz Email and Web Site may be delivered to you by our Web advertising partner or partners. Information about your visit to a partner site or sites, such as number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), is used to serve ads to you. For more information about our advertising partner or partners, cookies, and how to “opt-out”, please contact us at [email protected] for more information.
Occasionally, you’ll get an email marked “dedicated” or “sponsored” in the subject line and in the email header. These emails are not necessarily reflective of the opinions of the editorial staff. They are content paid for by our sponsors. You can unsubscribe from receiving these emails, however, if you do so, you will no longer receive HMC and HHM unsponsored emails either. Please see “How to unsubscribe.”
Third Party Cookies
In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser.

HMC and HHM is not responsible for the content that appears on those sites and does not endorse these sites. Please consult those sites’ individual privacy policies in order to determine how they treat user information.
All information described above is stored on restricted database servers.
