Privacy Policy

The information HMEPS provides on our Web site is made available for the convenient access of our active members and retirees. Electronic information privacy protection is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a convenient means to provide customer service.

HMEPS is committed to responsible information handling practices. When you access or use our Web site, you agree to the terms and conditions published here. Please note that the privacy policies or statements of other Web sites linked to the HMEPS Website may differ. HMEPS is not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites.

To complete HMEPS-related business online, we sometimes need to coordinate efforts with other parties, such as the City of Houston. Information will be used only to conduct HMEPS-related business. You can find more detailed information on this in our Security Policy section.

If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use this Web site. To stay current, we reserve the right to update our Privacy Policy as needed, and your use will be subject to the most current policy version. You should check these policies from time to time.

HMEPS has a responsibility to protect our computing resources. If we believe an attempt is being made through the Internet to break into or otherwise abuse our computer systems or business information, we will use the information in our computer logs, and other means available, to determine those responsible. As part of these legal efforts, we may share the information we gather with law enforcement agencies or other authorized entities.

Saving Your “View” & More Info on Cookies
AccessHMEPS has information specific to you. By selecting AccessHMEPS, you’ll get the information that is most relevant to you. You can also choose to Save Your Selection so that AccessHMEPS remembers it for all your visits. Saving your selection will place a “permanent” cookie on your computer. These are simple text files that do not expire after you close your session. They do not collect any personal information or identifiers about you, and if you want, you can clear them from your computer at any time. If you do delete them, you will need to select your View each time you visit our site. In addition, to maintain the functionality of our interactive Web site and our online services, “session-based” cookies are used. These cookies let the site know where to return the information or business transaction results you request by creating a temporary, randomly-generated identifying tag which expires when you end your browser session.

If you turn off your cookie option in your Web browser settings, you may not be able to access some of the information on AccessHMEPS.

Limitation of Liability
While HMEPS makes every attempt to ensure the information provided is reliable, human or mechanical error remains a possibility. Therefore, HMEPS does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or correct sequencing of information, and will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions, or for the use of results obtained from the use of the information. This applies to any Web sites linked to and from the HMEPS Web site.

If there is a conflict between the information provided on this Web site and the Houston Municipal Employees Pension System’s governing law, any decisions will be based on the law and not the information on this Web site.

Note: This Privacy Policy is subject to change without notice and reflects the current HMEPS business practices.
