We respect your privacy. This policy explains Faces of Innovation?s (FOI) practices about the way your information is collected and used. By using this website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of Personal Information

You are not required to provide any personal information to visit FOI?s website. However, the information FOI collects about you depends on how you use the website. If you wish to receive information from or about FOI, FOI will collect personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. This information is provided by you on a voluntary basis only and FOI will secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment.

If at any time you wish to unsubscribe or no longer receive information from or about FOI you will be allowed to opt-out by contacting FOI at [email protected].

Collection of Non-Personal Information

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by FOI. This information includes your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by FOI for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the FOI website. Examples of non-personal information FOI collects include:

  • The type of domain from which you accessed the Internet
  • The date and time you accessed the site
  • The IP address from which you accessed the site
  • The type of browser software used to view the site

Cookies

The FOI website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page 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 Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize FOI pages, or register with the FOI website or services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as email addresses, postal or shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same FOI website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the FOI features that you 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 FOI web services or websites you visit.

Third Parties

FOI does not sell, rent or lease lists to third parties. FOI may, from time to time, contact you about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to a third party. While we may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries, all such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to FOI, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

External Links

FOI?s website may contain links to external websites. FOI encourages you to review the privacy statements of the websites you choose to link to from our website so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. FOI is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the FOI and FOI family of websites. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through FOI public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.

Disclosure of Information

The FOI website will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on FOI or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of FOI; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of FOI?s website, or the public.

Children?s Online Privacy Protection

FOI abides by the standards set forth in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). FOI does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 and is not intended to solicit such information from children younger than 13.

Changes to this Statement

FOI may occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect you feedback. We encourage you to periodically review this Policy to be informed of how FOI is protecting your information.
