Weird Greeting in e-mail correspondence with HR department discussing salary

After many tough technical interviews with a giant tech company, I was finally contacted by the HR department to let me know that I passed all of them and they wanted to schedule an interview to discuss about salaries etc.

We talked for about an hour, and after that we start exchanging some e-mails regarding bonuses etc, usual stuff. However, in almost all of our e-mail correspondence, this HR person keeps greeting me with

"Hello dear," or "Hi dear,"

and then the message follows.

I wonder if this is simply because the person forgets to type my name in the template they probably have or what? I have to say that I feel somewhat uncomfortable with this and I would never expect that from such a giant company.

Did this happen to anyone before, and how shall I handle it? I think I will simply ignore it and reply as I always have: Dear [name of the person].

I wouldn't read into this too much. This is probably just a quirk of this one person at the company, and my guess would be that English isn't their first language. Either that or they are an elderly grandmother who addresses everyone younger than her as "dear".

Your response, to ignore it and address the HR person appropriately, is correct and you should continue as you have been.

what's your interest
