Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

Important Notes on Protecting your own Data

Please be aware of cybercrime and protecting your own information online, particularly financial information. Do not send unsecure personal information over the internet. We recommend you use encryption software or provide any information to us using the online tools we provide.

Do not respond to emails asking you to pay money. Never make a payment purely in response to an email. Always call the company to validate any payment requests and check the phone number independently from the email (i.e. via a secure web site). If you receive a phone call asking for payment ensure you are satisfied the call is genuine, or else call the company back to check. HL Partnership Limited will not take responsibility if you transfer money to a fraudster in error.
