FOTC encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to visit from links that may be posted on the FOTC website so you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. FOTC is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the FOTC website.
Use of Information about You
FOTC collects and uses information about you, including PII, and your use of the FOTC website to operate the FOTC website and affiliated websites and to deliver the services you have requested. FOTC also uses PII from time to time to inform you of other products or services available from FOTC and its affiliates. FOTC may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services. Note that you may opt out of being contacted by FOTC for any research or product updates at any time through links at the bottom of every email from FOTC.
FOTC may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of third-party business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. FOTC also uses third-party companies to help serve targeted product recommendations.

In addition, FOTC may share data, including PII, with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. FOTC requires these third parties to maintain the confidentiality of your information and to not use your PII except to provide services to FOTC. FOTC keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within and from the FOTC website in order to determine what FOTC services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising from FOTC to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
FOTC will not use or disclose sensitive personally identifiable information about you, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your express consent.

The FOTC website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the website server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register with the FOTC website or services, a cookie helps FOTC recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personally identifiable information, such as your billing addresses, shipping addresses, and other similar information. When you return to the same FOTC web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the FOTC features that you have customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the FOTC services or websites you visit.
