Privacy Policy

At HMF Cranes we ensure we meet our legal obligations as laid down by the Data Protection Act 1998

HMF Cranes. (“HMF”) may operate several websites including It is HMF’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, HMF collects 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. HMF’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how HMF’s visitors use its website. From time to time HMF may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

HMF also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. HMF does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to HMF’s websites choose to interact with HMF in ways that require HMF to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HMF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

Aggregated Statistics

HMF may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, HMF may monitor the most popular blogs on the HMF website. HMF may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, HMF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

HMF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HMF’s behalf or to provide services available at HMF’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using HMF’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

HMF will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, HMF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when HMF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HMF, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of a HMF website and have supplied your email address, HMF may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with HMF and our products.

We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. HMF takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, HMF may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in HMF’s sole discretion. HMF encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
