A. TFCC gathers customer information in order to improve the Site, to understand which areas of the Site are used most often, to enhance the browsing experience of customers, to disseminate requested information, and for limited marketing and promotional purposes.

B. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, we may collect such information into a database for such purposes. If you post messages in our Discussion Groups or leave feedback for other users, we may collect that information as well.

· We do not sell, rent or give your information to third parties.
· We allow you to determine whether, and how, we may contact you.
· We have no tolerance for spam (unsolicited, commercial email).

2. OUR — USE OF YOUR INFORMATION : You agree that we may use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, improve our content and product offerings, and customize our site’s content, layout, and services. These uses improve our site and better tailor it to meet your needs. Our Site design allows you to choose to receive information including administrative notices, product offerings, and communications relevant to FOD in general and to your use of the Site. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive these communications, please e-mail us regarding your decision.

3. OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION : Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or Discussion Group users may abuse or misuse the information that is posted on our Site. Therefore, although we make reasonable efforts to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private.

As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party. However, the following are some of the ways that your personally identifiable information may be disclosed.

A. Manufacturers/ Service Providers. If you submit a request for information, goods or services, and we are unable to process your request for any reason, we will forward your request and information to an alternative source so that you may obtain the assistance you require.

B. Legal Requests. TFCC cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as: intellectual property rights, fraud and other rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability.

4. YOUR — USE OF OTHER — USERS’ INFORMATION : In order to facilitate interaction among all Discussion Group participants, we allow you to view information posted by other participants. You agree to use such information only for: (a) TFCC-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, and (b) any other purpose that such user expressly agrees to after adequate disclosure of the purpose(s). In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this Section, may you disclose personally identifiable information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure.

5. SPAM : TFCC and our users do not tolerate spam.

To report TFCC related spam to TFCC, please email us at .

6. REVIEWING AND CHANGING POSTING CONTENT : Once posted, you cannot change or remove any public postings made in our Discussion Groups or other message areas. Upon your request, we will remove your posting from our sites and your information from our active databases. To make this request, please contact us. Such information will be removed as soon as reasonably possible. We will retain in our files information you have requested to remove in some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our Terms of Use. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical and legal constraints, including stored “back up” systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your request.

7. OTHER INFORMATION COLLECTORS : Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties on our Site or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Third parties, including manufacturers and suppliers, may adhere to their own privacy policies. Since TFCC does not control the privacy policies of any third party, you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

8. NOTICE : We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time based on your comments and our need to accurately reflect our data collection and disclosure practices. All changes to this policy are effective immediately and without notice to you.
