The FORTH, Inc. web site does not target and is not intended for children under the age of 13. FORTH, Inc. abides by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requirements and FORTH, Inc. does not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13.
FORTH, Inc. collects information from its web site that could be used to identify you ("Personal Information") when you contact us for information. Such specific information is only collected via online forms and direct communications. Any other information we collect, including but not limited to browser version and operating system, does not include details that identify you and are only used for statistical analysis.
Except as set out in this section, FORTH, Inc. will not disclose your Personal Information to companies other than its strategic partners and necessary service providers, including but not limited to third party consultants who may assist FORTH, Inc. from time to time. FORTH, Inc., its strategic partners, and its necessary service providers use your Personal Information in order to operate the web site and to deliver the information.
While FORTH, Inc. attempts to require that the third parties described above not further use or disclose your Personal Information for any purpose other than as described in this policy, FORTH, Inc. cannot guarantee their compliance with such restrictions. FORTH, Inc. will otherwise only release your Personal Information to third parties in the following limited circumstances: (i) if legally required to do so under a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; (ii) if the rights or property of FORTH, Inc., its affiliates, their service providers or the users of the web site are at risk; and (iii) if the personal safety of users of the web site or other members of the public are at risk.
FORTH, Inc. may also use your Personal Information to generate information about you that does not allow you to be identified or contacted ("Aggregated Information"). Aggregated Information shows user activity as a whole rather than on an individual basis. For example, FORTH, Inc. might compile Personal Information in order to determine the percentage of users that live in a particular geographic area. FORTH, Inc. may also disclose Aggregated Information to third parties. For example, FORTH, Inc. might inform third parties about the number of users of the web site and the activities conducted by users while on the web site.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy the assets of similar organizations. In such transactions, user information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that FORTH, Inc. or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of those transferred assets.
FORTH, Inc. recognizes that your privacy is important to you and therefore we employ technical security measures that endeavor to protect information from outside threats. However, FORTH, Inc. and its service providers do not represent, warrant or guarantee that Personal Information will be protected against loss, misuse or alterations, or unauthorized access by third-parties and do not accept any liability for Personal Information submitted to them, nor for your or third parties' use or misuse of Personal Information.
Among our top priorities is keeping your Personal Information secure. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which provides the highest level of security currently available for secure transactions, to encrypt your Personal Information before it is transmitted to us. Encrypted information cannot be read or recorded as it travels over the Internet. You can tell you are sending information securely by the unbroken key icon or closed lock icon that should appear at the bottom of your internet browser's window (depending on what browser you use). These icons will appear when you are placing an order on our Web site. In addition, you will see our site address change slightly, from http: to https: indicating a secure server connection is being used.
