This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for www.helm.com of Helm Incorporated.
Information Collection and Use
Helm is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We
will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways
different from what is disclosed in this statement. Helm collects
information from our users at several different points on our website.
Providing E-Mail Address
In order to receive e-mail confirmation of order and special
notifications, a user must first provide their e-mail address. A user is
required to give their contact information (such as name and email
address). This information is used to contact the user about the
services on our site for which they have expressed interest.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must
provide contact information (like name and address).
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing
information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any
personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user
closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by
setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a
password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a
user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback
to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For
example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our
Sweepstakes, Contests or monthly Drawings that take place. Cookies can
also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance
the experience on our site.
advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's
movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and
advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can
identify any individual person.
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card
processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies
do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information
for any secondary purposes.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we
Helm are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.
We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read
the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects
personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies
solely to information collected by this Web site.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys
or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely
voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose
this information. Information requested may include contact information
(such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such
as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the
winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes
of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information.
When users submit sensitive information via the website, your
information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive
information (such as credit card number and/or social security number),
that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption
software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our
order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to
un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we
also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.
All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information
mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need
the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing
clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to
personally identifiable information. Our employees must use
password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they
return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your
information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our
security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new
policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the
importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our
customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store
personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment,
behind a locked cage.
Supplementation of Information
In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation to our
customers, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we
receive with information from 3rd party sources.
Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of receiving
information from at the point where we ask for the information. For
example, our order form does not require a user to provide his/her
e-mail address so users who buy a product from us, but don't want any
marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being
collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an
informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that
require an outside party, or not.
Notification of Changes
our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we
collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in
a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we
will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to
whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We
the information was collected.
