What Information Does H-STAT Collect About Site Visitors?
At the Site, we do not collect Personal Information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly.

Personal Information that we collect falls into three primary categories.

  • Information that Site Visitors Give Us: We may receive and store the information that you enter at our website, provide to us on a webpage or give to us in any other way. You can always choose not to provide some or all of the information which we request. This information is used solely by H-STAT and other entities in furtherance of H-STAT’s charitable activities.
  • Automatic Information: Whenever you interact with H-STAT, we receive and store certain types of information. For example, we may use “cookies” to obtain information when your web browser accesses this website. A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier, which we transfer to your computer via your Web browser and store on your computer’s hard drive. On most web browsers you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie, and how to turn cookies off.

For instance, if your computer supports this functionality, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email we send you. We may also receive a confirmation when you follow a hyperlink from one of our email messages to our website. If you want to stop receiving email from us, simply hit reply and type “unsubscribe” in the subject field or contact us by email at

We are not in the business of selling information about our Site visitors. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you and we treat it with great care and respect. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your data with certain third parties. We will share personally identifiable information with third parties when (i) the person submitting the information authorizes us to share it, (ii) the third-party is performing a function on behalf of H-STAT that is directly related to the operation of the Site or to a service or information provided on the Site, and access to such information is necessary to the performance of such function or to the provision of such services or information being provided, or (iii) we are required to by law to do so.
