In general, you can visit the Site on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or providing us with any personally identifiable information. However, we collect the domain names (not the email addresses unless you choose to provide your email address to us) of all visitors to our Site to measure the number of visits, pages visited, average time spent on our Site, etc. We use this information to continually improve the convenience and functionality of our Site.
We may also conduct online surveys to better understand the needs and profiles of our visitors and to measure the interest of our visitors in the features of our Site.
We may tailor our offers to you based on information you provide when you purchase products and services, from our online surveys, from information that may indicate your purchasing preferences and lifestyle, as well as information available from external sources, including demographic and census data. With your consent, Hyo Silver may also share your email address with other reputable companies so that they can send you product and service offers that may be of interest. You will be offered an opportunity to restrict access to your email address if you object to the use of your email address by any party other than Hyo Silver. Unless it is specifically stated otherwise, when you are asked for personal information on our Site, you are agreeing to share that information with Hyo Silver.
Information Collection and Use
When you sign up for the Services you will be asked to provide us with certain information, described in detail below (together, “Your Information”). Unless it is specifically stated otherwise, when you are asked for personal information on our Site, you are agreeing to share that information with Hyo Silver and its affiliates.
We may use Your Information:
- For license reporting and assessment of service levels;
- To better understand on an aggregated basis how our services are used, gauge traffic patterns and determine what types of content and services are most popular with our users;
- To verify access rights to content or services;
- To provide you with information about Hyo Silver products, services, news and events through the Site or email;

Limited Information Sharing with Third Parties
Hyo Silver is committed to protecting your privacy. We will only share Your Information with third parties in accordance with your instructions and in order to provide you specific services. [For example, we use a credit card processing company to bill users for Services or products purchased. This business partner does not retain, share, or store any personally identifiable information except to provide this service and is bound by a strict confidentiality agreement which limits their use of such information.]
We may share aggregated and anonymous demographic information with our business partners but no such information can be linked directly to Your Information.
Although we will use every reasonable effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose Your Information, including personally identifiable information, when required by federal, state local or other governmental regulations or laws. In such cases, we will use reasonable efforts to disclose only the information required by law enforcement personnel.
Our Site may include links to other third party Web sites. While we try to link to sites that share our high standards and respect for personal privacy, however, Hyo Silver is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by any third party.
Change in Ownership and Other Business Transaction
Unfortunately no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect Your Information, we cannot warrant the security of the information provided to us online. However, once we receive your information, we will do our best to ensure that our systems are functioning properly and will use reasonable and customary efforts to protect that information.
