A cookie is a piece of data stored on your hard drive when you visit our site to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. Aggregate cookie and tracking information may be shared with third parties.

The Site’s web and ad servers log information about a user’s IP address, browser type and the current URL the user is requesting.

Information Privacy and Security – Client Extranet Login
In the course of your association with Hamacher Resource Group, you may entrust us with confidential business information related to ongoing work. In those cases, we only provide secured access to that information through our web site as approved by our clients.
Commitment to Data Security
We care about the protection of your user information and use industry standard safeguards to do so. It’s important to keep in mind that no data transmission on the Internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure. Once your personally identifiable information is submitted to Hamacher Resource Group, it is stored and kept secure. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. We use industry standard physical, electronic, and organizational safeguards to protect your user information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. If you are concerned that your privacy may have been breached, please contact us.
Privacy of Children
The Site is intended for people who are at least 18 years of age.
If you are less than 18 years old, please do not send any user information to us–including information such as your name, address, or e-mail address. We do not knowingly collect (nor do we wish to collect) any personally identifiable information or other user information from children under the age of 18. In the event that we learn we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 18, we will delete that information from our database and terminate the corresponding account, if any.
