The web site you have entered is operated by, or on behalf of, First Network Group, Inc. or its subsidiaries ("FNGi").
FNGi is committed to providing special protection for the privacy of children who may visit our web sites. FNGi is also committed to fully complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Our protections for the privacy of children include the following:
If you become aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information at one of our web sites, we invite you to notify us so that we may delete the information from our records and discontinue any related features or services (see Opt-Out below). We appreciate your cooperation in assisting us to provide a safe and enjoyable online experience for your children.
FNGi collects Personal Information from visitors to our web sites in the following ways:
The use of any of these services is entirely optional and voluntary; however, if you do not provide the Personal Information
requested, we may elect to not make the related services available for your use. If you send us an e-mail in which you disclose Personal Information, we will use it to discuss the subject of your correspondence and, if appropriate, share it with other interested parties (such as manufacturers of merchandise you have purchased from a web site).
If you send us an e-mail, you should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication needs to include sensitive information like your bank account, credit card, or social security number, please contact us by postal mail or telephone (see Contact Us, below) rather than e-mail.
In order to track your use of the site, "cookies" may be employed. Cookies are pieces of information that are sent by web sites and stored in your computer's hard drive, which provide you a service by allowing us to recognize your computer to save you from having to re-enter the same data every time you visit our web sites. They also allow us to learn how visitors use our web sites. This user data is aggregated for tracking purposes primarily by tallying pages viewed throughout our web sites and logging Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses and browser types.
Aggregated usage data enables us to tailor our content to our visitors’ interests and to help our advertisers better understand the preferences of our audience. Providing such usage data to advertisers is essential to keeping as many of our services free to visitors as is reasonably possible. This information does not reveal your identity although, in some cases, we may have to combine this non-identifiable information with Personal Information to enforce compliance with our Terms of Service or to protect our service, web sites, visitors or others.
If you do not want to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject them. However, if you turn cookies off, you will not have access to some FNGi features and services.
All Personal Information collected at our web sites is collected and stored in the United States. By submitting Personal Information to this web site, you are consenting to the storage of your Personal Information in the United States.
We limit the manner in which your Personal Information is used. We use Personal Information to provide you the products and services you want, to better understand and serve the needs of the FNGi community, and to provide news and information to community members on new content, products and features of the web sites via direct e-mail. If you have registered with us and do not want to be contacted in the future by FNGi or our advertising partners, please see Opt-Out below.
If you order a product or service from us or register for one of our contests, promotions, or interactive services, FNGi may share Personal Information with service providers, suppliers and other third parties (for example, sweepstakes sponsors or delivery services) that assist us in operating the web sites or providing the products or services. When we share your Personal Information with third parties, they may use your Personal Information to send you information on their additional products or services, but FNGi does not allow them to sell or transfer your Personal Information to others. We do not otherwise sell or provide your Personal Information to third parties.
Finally, please note that we will release your Personal Information if required to do so by law, or by search warrant, subpoena or court order.
We take reasonable precautions to keep your Personal Information secure, including the use of Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology to protect credit card information and other Personal Information you provide in connection with purchases, paid subscriptions or other similar transactions.
Any feature on our web sites requiring registration allows you to opt-out from receiving any newsletters, product offers, or other correspondence from either us or our business affiliates. In addition, if after registering, you would no longer like to receive any such materials or correspondence, please send an e-mail to email@example.com indicating your preference to “unsubscribe,” and we will promptly remove you from our list. Please be sure to include your name and e-mail address in the e-mail. You will need to send separate e-mails if you are registered for more than one of our features or services.
If you believe your child (age 12 or younger) has provided us with Personal Information and/or is receiving access to certain features or services, including marketing communications, we invite you to notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may delete such Personal Information and/or discontinue your child’s access to the related features or services.
If you would like to know what Personal Information FNGi has concerning you, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. We will contact you by mail to verify your identity and provide you the information you request. If you would like to correct or update your Personal Information, including providing a new e-mail address, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your old e-mail address.
