Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website.

Other information we collect

Social buttons - on many of the pages of the HFoM site you will see ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. There are buttons for Twitter and Facebook ‘Like’’. In order to implement these buttons and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of HFoM. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on HFoM's site. So, if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting HFoM, and the specific pages you are on, even if you do not click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Twitter and Facebook. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

External web services - we use a number of wix applications services on the HFoM site, mostly to display content, such as YouTube videos within our web pages. As with the social buttons we cannot prevent these providers from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not know who you are but are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.


The material on our site is given for general information only and does not constitute professional advice. You should take specific advice before taking a course of action as we do not accept directly or indirectly any responsibility for loss arising directly or indirectly from reliance on information on this site.

Given that the Internet uses an open system we cannot warrant that the site and downloads reach you virus-free. You must, therefore, take all appropriate precautions for your own safety.
