Welcome to The Hibbert Group's (THG) website, www.hibbert.com and thank you for taking the time to review this Privacy Statement, which applies to all visitors to our website, including consumers, clients and prospects. THG provides comprehensive marketing support to many of the most successful companies in the world. We are an international marketing services firm established in 1881, proud of our rich heritage and family ownership. We seek long-term partnerships with our customers.
THG has identified the highest international performance standards in marketing support and are striving to meet or exceed these standards. Global Excellence is a major corporate initiative at our company. Also, all of our quality programs reside under the Global Excellence banner. These include the Partnership Performance Promise (PPP), ISO 9001:2008 certification and Leadership Certification. THG is a registered member of DMA (www.the-dma.org) and adheres to its privacy guidelines as well as a member of the international association of privacy professionals (i.a.p.p.).
We believe that protecting the privacy and confidentiality of consumer and client employee information is very important. We value your business and the trust you have placed in us. Keeping current with (GLBA), (HIPAA), the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and all state & federal regulations regarding consumer data, THG has continued to enhance our privacy procedures regarding how we handle our client's consumer and employee information.
THG will protect consumer and client employee information on our end; however, it is essential for you to protect yourself against unauthorized access to information on your side. Take simple measures as signing off and logging out when finished using any computer; keep your passwords in a secure location; and never share your passwords with any third parties.
The Hibbert Group will only collect consumer and client employee information that is voluntarily submitted to the company by its clients, purchased on behalf of its clients, or procured on behalf of its clients through marketing activities. The Hibbert Group will not knowingly collect consumer information from individuals under the age of 18 without verification of appropriate parental consent as performed by The Hibbert Group’s client. All consumer information collected online and offline is subject to “opt-in” and “opt-out” mechanisms as defined by our clients.

Consumer and client employee information is collected through, but not limited to, data file transmissions from The Hibbert Group’s client or their business partner, websites, e-mail campaigns, returned mail / Business Reply Cards (BRCs), consumer inquiry by mail or phone, and coupon rebate programs.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. We implement technical and organization measures to protect your Personal Data and follow data retention practices in line with applicable law. These measures can include physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. We also limit access to your Personal Data to only employees, agents and representatives who need to know. The Hibbert Group’s data transfer security is maintained through a combination of several data encryption methods and authenticity certificate programs including SSH, PGP and of SSL security certificates. SSH utilizes Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) which allows for increased security when transferring files over the Internet. The Hibbert Group will take reasonable steps to permit individuals access to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.
We will require third parties to whom we disclose Personal Data and who are not subject to laws based on the Privacy Shield principles, as applicable, to either (i) subscribe to the Privacy Shield principles or (ii) contractually agree to provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Data as is required by the relevant Privacy Shield principles. If the third party does not comply with its privacy obligations, The Hibbert Group may choose to, where appropriate, take steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure of Personal Data.
The Hibbert Group remains legally liable for any breach of the Privacy Shield by any of their third parties in connection with onward transfer of personal data.
