We collect information that you provide directly to us. For example, when you register for an account, we ask you to provide certain information such as your name and email address. If you choose to purchase products and services from us, we ask you to provide your name, credit card information, billing address, shipping address, phone number and email. If you choose to communicate with us via available electronic communication (e.g., email, online chat or instant messaging), we may retain a complete copy of the electronic communication together with your email address. If you register through, visit the Website from or otherwise communicate with us through a third-party social media platform, then we may receive information from such social media platforms in connection with such activities. We also collect information when you respond to our ads, respond to our surveys, receive technical support assistance from us or in connection with the Services, register through or otherwise communicate with us via third-party social media sites or participate in any interactive features of the Services (such as chat rooms, blogs, message or bulletin boards or new groups available to you through the Website).

Social Sharing Features

The Services may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button), which let you share actions you take on our Services with other media, and vice versa. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features.

Links to Third Party Websites

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any website or service to which the Services link. The inclusion of a link on the Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties prior to providing them with information or taking advantage of an offer or promotion.

Advertising and Analytics Services Provided by Others

We may allow others to provide analytics services and serve advertisements on our behalf across the web and in mobile applications. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Services and other websites and applications, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages or in apps, links clicked and conversion information. This information may be used by FFM and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on our Services and other websites and better understand your online activity. For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative by clicking http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Data Retention

We store the information we collect on you for as long as is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we originally collected it, or for other legitimate business purposes, including to meet our legal, regulatory or other compliance obligations.

Security

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, and no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of the databases where your personal information is stored and processed, nor can we guarantee that the information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the internet, including, without limitation, information included within emails. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

For purposes of clarification, we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be non-negotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their systems, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures.

Transfer of Information to the U.S. and Other Countries

FFM is based in the United States and we process and store information in the United States and Canada. Therefore, we and our service providers may transfer your information to, or store or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction. We reserve the right to block users located in certain countries from using the Website.
