HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Any information we collect from you, can be used by any entity carrying out functions on behalf of Hyperion and its related entities for:

We may use the information we gather to provide you with targeted communications about products and services we think will be of interest to you. We may also send you details of offers or services provided by Hyperion’s related entities.
You may at any time choose not to receive these communications. Doing so will not cost you anything, and we commit to ensuring that you stop receiving any unwanted communications as soon as possible. If you do not want to receive such communications, please contact us.
WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH?
We will only disclose personal information to third party entities carrying out functions on behalf of Hyperion and its related entities on a confidential basis.

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Hyperion regards the security of your personal information as a priority and takes all reasonable steps to protect your information from loss and unauthorised access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.
Hyperion stores personal information in a combination of computer storage facilities, paper-based files and other records. These are held on our secure premises and systems as well as offsite using trusted third parties. We will take reasonable steps to protect personal information from loss, interference or misuse, and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Where personal information is no longer required to be retained, we will take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to de-identify the information or put it beyond use.
