You may be contacted directly by HMS or an HMS distributor if we have a direct need to contact you regarding an enquiry, order status, development project issues, or with product updates.
In addition, HMS uses "opt-in" email mailings for the distribution of company and product news via a 3rd party cloud-based system based in the USA called "Mailchimp". Customers have to complete a double opt-in system to be added to this list. With every publication, mailchimp provides an "unsubscribe" or "update my details" function, allowing you at anytime to change or be removed from further publications.
Details such as Name, Company name, Email, Phone and Country are stored on Mailchimp servers and are subject to US law. For more information about the mailchimp system please click the link above.
