Welcome to Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority.
We currently do not, but we may in the future provide third party content or links to third-party web sites or applications or include features that allow you to connect your XSI account with your accounts with third parties, social media platforms like Facebook. When you leave our Services or interact with a third-party feature, you should also read the applicable third party's privacy policies and terms of service to make sure you understand how they might collect and share information about you.
We collect information in two ways, when you give it to us and with automatic technologies.
Information You Provide
You may be asked to provide certain information to HISA through various forms, features or other means throughout the Services. These means include, for example, our registration form for new customers, data collection forms for personalized features, and feedback forms where you send us comments, questions, or other feedback.
The types of information we may collect from you include your name, address, email address, phone number and method of payment. We may also collect information about you or your firm, like the size, and primary business.
Currently we collect: your email address
Information Automatically Collected
HISA automatically collects certain information about how you access and interact with our Services ("Usage Information"). This Usage Information is a key part of how HISA improves your experience with the Services. HISA may use various technologies to collect, use and store Usage Information in connection with the Services. These may include things like cookies, browser web storage (e.g., HTML5), web beacons and similar technologies. There are three types of Usage Information HISA might collect:
Device Information: This is information about how you access the Services, such as the operating system, hardware model, application or browser type and version, and unique identifiers associated with your device. We may also integrate with built-in device features.
Log Information: There are certain pieces of information we automatically collect in system logs or similar files about how you interact with the Services, such as which features you visit or click on. This Log Information may also include things like your IP address, browser or device configuration, date and time of access and cookie information.
Location Information: We may use certain information like your IP address or other Device Information or Log Information to estimate your location We may also request to use location-enabled services on your device (which typically provide GPS or Wi-Fi access point details) to enhance the Services. We will only use these location-enabled services on your device with your consent, though.
How We Use the Information We Collect
HISA uses the information collected from you to operate the Services, communicate with you, conduct research and development to improve or enhance the Services and our users' experience. These are a few specific examples of how we use the information we collect for these purposes:
Communicating with you. We may use information we collect to provide you with member support or to send you things like service-related announcements, or other updates.
Legal reasons. HISA reserve the right to access, use, preserve, transfer or disclose, at any time without notice to you, any information (including personal information) as reasonably necessary to:
Comply with any applicable law, regulation, subpoena or legal process, or respond to any governmental requests and cooperate with law enforcement, if we believe such action is required or permitted by law;
Enforce our Terms of Service, including investigating any potential violations.
Protect the safety, integrity, rights or security of the Services or equipment; or
Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues related to the Services.
When HISA Might Share the Information It Collects
HISA does not sell or rent personal information to third parties for their use. We may share information about you, including personal information, with third parties in the following circumstances:
You publicly post information: As part of the Services, we may in the future provide you with the ability to publicly post reviews, questions, comments, suggestions or other content, which may include personal information and portions of your HISA account designated as public profile information, like your name or username. Anything you share in a public forum is, public, so be certain you are comfortable about what you decide to share.
For Legal Reasons: We reserve the right to transfer or disclose information about you to third parties for certain legal purposes. (You can read more about these in the "How We Use the Information We Collect" section above.)
With Your Consent: We may also share your personal information in other circumstances with your consent or where required by law.
You can manage your communications preferences by visiting your account profile. We default to no marketing communication. If you want to receive marketing information you must 'opt-in'. Technology moves fast, so the types of communications and communication preference options might change from time to time.
Deactivating Your Account
We hope this never happens, but if you decide you no longer want to use the Services, you can cancel and deactivate your account by selecting the deactivate account on your account profile.
Do Not Track Signals
Currently, we do not respond to automated signals regarding tracking mechanisms, including "do not track" instructions from your browser. Please note that blocking cookies may affect your browsing experience on many sites and may limit your ability to use certain features of our Services, including many of the personalized features we provide for our members.
