Who are we?
Our website address is https://hscrevision.com and we can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why do we collect information?
As is true of most websites, we collect non-personal information of the type that typical web browsers and servers make available. This information is used to better understand how patrons use our website and provide you with the best possible experience and service. For example, we can use the information to:
- Make our website easier for you to use
- Help you find what you’re looking for, quickly and easily
- Create articles and other content that you’ll enjoy
- Let you know about new promotions, products and other information
In each case, we collect such information only as necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the user’s interaction with us. Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
We may also use information about you for the purposes listed below:
- To provide our Services. For example, to set up and maintain your account, process payments and orders, and verify user information.
- To ensure quality, maintain safety, and improve our Services. For example, by monitoring and analysing how users interact with our Services so we can create new features that we think our users will enjoy or make our Services easier to use.
- To place and manage ads in our advertising program. For example, to place ads on our sites as part of our advertising program, and understand advertisement performance.
- To protect our Services, our users, and the public. For example, by detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with our legal obligations; and protecting the rights and property of HSC Revision and others, which may result in us, for example, declining a transaction or terminating Services.
- To fix problems with our Services. For example, by monitoring, debugging, repairing, and preventing issues.
- To communicate with you. For example, by emailing you your feedback from the queries generated via the Contact Us form.
What type of information is collected?
When you access the pages on the hscrevision.com site, our computers automatically record common information such as:
- your server address
- date and time of visit to hscrevision.com
- the type of browser and operating system you have used.
- the pages accessed and documents downloaded from hscrevision.com
- the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the machine that has accessed the site
What personal data do we collect?
For users that register on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information
Certain users or visitors choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who contact us to provide their names and email address. When users leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Like most websites, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website.
It is the policy of HSC Revision to utilise positive feedback from students as a promotional tool and hence students hereby agree to permit the use of such statements referred to HSC Revision in email and other correspondence. Keeping the use of such statements, a student’s privacy and confidentiality will be respected as any such advertising or promotion will be restricted to only use of Name, City and State.

You can tell if you are using a secure server by looking for a closed padlock sign at the left side of the URL address bar of your browser window. In internet browsers, you will see a lock icon. When the symbol is unbroken or the padlock appears to be in its closed state, the page is encrypted and therefore secure. If you wish to take advantage of the latest encryption standards, be sure you have the latest version of the browser you’re using.
