We are committed to handling your information with high security standards. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to information only for those employees or affiliates of Hubio who require it for their job responsibilities.
In operating our website, we may transfer business or personal information to service centers operated by Hubio, our affiliates, and our data processing service suppliers, which may be located in the USA or Canada.

A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer that uniquely identifies you. It tells our web servers when you return to a page you’ve already visited.
In general you may visit our website without providing us with any personal information. However, there are times when we may need information from you, including your Internet address, so that we can track unique visits to our site for analytic purposes.
There are a number of cookies that we use, including:
‘_utma’, ‘_utmb’, ‘_utmc’ and ‘_utmz’
These are used by Google Analytics to anonymously count visits to the site and tell us patterns in how the user moves around the site, enabling us to make the site better.
Third party cookies
Cookies for certain other services (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, AddThis) are set by the embedded content. We don’t control these cookies so for more information we advise you to check those services’ cookie policies.
The open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures, and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. While this is out of our control, we aim to apply appropriate levels of security at all times.
Our website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to enhance security when entering sensitive data while requesting an online quote. SSL is the industry standard technology for protecting and maintaining the security of message transmissions over the Internet. When you enter sensitive data from secured sites, encryption will scramble your data into an unreadable format to inhibit unauthorized access by others.
Open rates and clicks
Hubio sends email and tracks the open rates of the HTML version of these messages. This allows us to improve the quality of the messages we send. Hubio cannot track open rates on plain text messages. Hubio may also track clicks on website links included in the messages.
Hubio employs the use of transparent images in our messages for tracking purposes. This only tracks open rates of messages that have been deployed by Hubio. Upon opening, messages sent from Hubio will send a notification to our internal reporting services.
How we protect the information you provided
Hubio takes strong precautions to protect the information you provide from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction.
How you can change the information you provided
If you have provided information to Hubio and would like it deleted from our records, or you would like to update information you’ve given us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Contacting us if you feel you have received unsolicited email
Hubio does not send or condone unsolicited email, or “spam”. We send email only to people who have requested information about our products, or have attended industry events in which Hubio participates.
If you feel you’ve received unsolicited email from Hubio, please send a message to email@example.com. We promise to deal with your issue promptly.
