Privacy Policy

Humaneering Technology Initiative, LLC (“HTI”) collects and manages user data according to the following Privacy Policy. This document is part of HTI’s Terms of Use (“Terms”), and by using (the “Site”), you agree to both the terms of this Privacy Policy, and to the Terms of Use.

  1. Data Collected

HTI routinely collects anonymous data from every visitor of the Site to monitor traffic and fix bugs. For example, HTI collects information like web requests, the data sent in response to such requests, the Internet Protocol address, the browser type, the browser language, and a timestamp for the request.

For you to become a Community Member, HTI requires you to register and login, providing certain personal information (such as your name and email address), which enables HTI to monitor and support your progress through the Humaneering Proficiency Development Program, and to retain a record of your course completions and the associated Intellectual Property License Level for which you are authorized.

In order to enable these or any other login-based features, HTI uses cookies to store session information. You can block or delete cookies and still be able to use the Site, although if you do you will then be asked for your username and password every time you log in to the Website. In order to take advantage of certain features of the Site, you may also choose to provide us with other personal information, such as your picture, but your decision to utilize these features and provide such data will always be voluntary.

You are able to view, change and remove your data associated with your profile. Should you choose to delete your account, please contact HTI at

Minors and children should not use the Site. By using the Site, you represent that you have the legal capacity to enter into a binding agreement.

  1. Use of the Data

HTI only uses your personal information to provide you HTI’s products and services, or to communicate with you about these HTI products and services or the Site.

HTI treats seriously any documents you may choose to upload to the Site. We encrypt all documents. If you choose to make a document public, HTI recommends you redact any and all references to people and addresses, as HTI cannot assure protection of public data and we cannot be responsible, and are not responsible, for any violation of privacy law you may be liable for.

HTI utilizes industry standard techniques to protect against unauthorized access of data about you that we store, including personal information.

HTI does not share personal information you have provided to us without your consent, unless:

(a) doing so is appropriate to carry out your own request;

(b) HTI believes it’s needed to enforce HTI’s Terms, or that it’s legally required;

(c) HTI believes it’s needed to detect, prevent or address fraud, security or technical issues;

(d) otherwise protect HTI’s property, legal rights, or the property and legal rights of others.

HTI is operated from the United States. If you are visiting the Site from outside the U.S., you agree to any processing of any personal information you provide us according to this policy.

HTI may contact you, by email or other means. For example, HTI may send you promotional emails relating to HTI or other third parties HTI feels you would be interested in, or communicate with you about your use of the Site. HTI may also use technology to alert HTI via a confirmation email when you open an email from HTI. You can modify your email notification preferences by clicking the appropriate link included in the footer of email notifications. If you do not want to receive email from HTI, please opt out of (i.e., unsubscribe from) receiving emails at the bottom of any HTI emails or by editing your profile preferences.

  1. Sharing of Data

HTI does not share your personal information with third parties. Only aggregated, anonymized data is periodically transmitted to external services to help HTI improve the Site and HTI’s products and services.

In the future, HTI may also use social buttons provided by services like Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook. Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. HTI is not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these third-party services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding third party services’ privacy policies.

HTI employs and contracts with people and other entities that perform certain tasks on HTI’s behalf and who are under HTI’s control (HTI’s “Agents”). HTI may need to share personal information with HTI’s Agents to provide products or services to you. Unless HTI tells you differently, HTI’s Agents do not have any right to use your Personal Information or other information HTI shares with them beyond what is necessary to assist HTI. You hereby consent to HTI’s sharing of your Personal Information with HTI’s Agents.

HTI may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if HTI, or substantially all of HTI’s assets, were acquired, or if HTI goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of HTI or HTI’s assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

  1. Changes to the Privacy Policy

HTI may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information HTI collects now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. If HTI makes major changes in the way HTI collects or uses information, HTI will notify you by posting an announcement on the Site or sending you an email. A user is bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when he or she uses the Site or HTI’s products and services after such changes have been first posted.
