Our emails and website are hosted by Bluehost and this server is based in the USA. Bluehost, from May 25th 2018, say they will not publish the personal data of domain name registrants located in the EU in the WHOIS. This is to ensure their WHOIS output is compliant with the GDPR. However, access to personal data of domain name registrants may be granted when such access is necessary for technical reasons such as for the facilitation of transfers, or for law enforcement when it is legally entitled to such access. Please see Bluehost’s GDPR compliancy and privacy policy for more information.

HBM collects non-personally-identifying information that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

Certain visitors to the HBM website choose to interact with HBM in ways that require HBM to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HBM gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example once a reader subscribes for 12 months from our website to have a physical magazine posted to them each edition, our Pay Pal site may ask for their name, address, email and payment details on their system and we may be required to email our subscribers for subscription renewals, any payment errors, refunds or change of address. We have a free e-newsletter that has an opt in function on our website and you can unsubscribe at any time by emailing us at the email below. There is also an unsubscribe function at the bottom of the emails that go out 2-3 times per month. If we run a competition, then these email addresses may be stored on our cloud system for accountability purposes for competitions, they are not released to any third parties.
HBM discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HBM’s behalf or to provide services available at HBM’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using HBM’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. HBM will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, HBM discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when HBM believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HBM, third parties or the public at large.
