The types of Personal Information that we may collect from time to time may include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, contact details, financial, credit or billing information, demographic details, and other personally identifiable information.

Personal Information may be collected through your voluntary disclosure, use of our service, apps, or websites, purchase of our products, subscription to our publications, completion of registration or subscription forms, by means of surveys, entry to a contest or other promotion or through third-party agents, contractors, vendors or suppliers who provide products and services to us (“Service Providers“), as well as through our third-party business partners to whom we provide our products and services.
We collect, use and/or disclose your Personal Information for purposes reasonably connected to why you’ve provided it to us, as well as for purposes otherwise permitted or required by law. Some examples of purposes for which we use personal information include the following:
We may share non-personal, aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, demographics, traffic patterns, and related site information with advertisers and reputable third-party vendors for marketing and promotional purposes; however, none of the information we disclose in this aggregate form can be used to personally identify you.
Disclosure to FTA; Disclosure as Permitted or Required by Law

We will retain your Personal Information for further employment opportunities that may arise within FTA, unless you inform us that you no longer want us to retain your information.
We may provide Personal Information in response to a court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful.

Disclosure to Service Providers

PRIVACY PROTECTION AND OUR WEBSITES
By using a browser feature called a “cookie” and other methods (including tracking pixels, also known as web beacons and log files), FTA and our third-party Service Providers may gather non-personal information and Personal Information when you visit our websites, services, or apps, such as data about the frequency of your visits to our websites, the duration of your visits, the number of pages you view and the type of Internet browser and operating system you use, the date and time of your query, and your browser language. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that identifies the visitor’s browser, but not necessarily the visitor, each time our websites, services, or apps are visited. As part of our email communications and website analyses, we may use web beacons and track URLs. Web beacons are electronic files that count users who access a website or page and can also allow us to see if a cookie has been activated. Web beacons on web pages or email communications allow us to see how successful an article may be or that an email message was successfully delivered and read. Tracked URLs will count the amount of clicks on a web page. This allows us to edit a web page according to the popularity of the articles you read.
We may use this information for purposes including remembering your preferences and settings, providing personalized content, determining the popularity of certain content, authenticating users, determining the effectiveness of any advertising campaigns, and analyzing the behaviour and interests of people (including traffic and trends) accessing our website, services, and apps. We may also allow others to provide analytics services (e.g. Google Analytics) and audience measurement services for us, to serve advertisements on our behalf on the Internet, and to monitor and report on the performance of those advertisements.
You can manage your cookies by installing a third-party program or by reconfiguring your web browser. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can delete or disable cookies by modifying your settings. If you decide to disable cookies on our services, apps, and websites, you may not be able to take full advantage of all features of our services, apps, and websites.
Some of FTA’s websites, apps, and services offer chat rooms and other public forums. If you post a review, make a comment, or otherwise submit Personal Information on a public forum such as social media accounts or public forums on our websites, services, or apps, your communications may be viewable by the public.
For your convenience, search functions are sometimes provided on our websites. We keep records of the words searched to learn more about what kind of information our visitors are seeking, and thus improve our products and services.

We may request the Personal Information of an individual under 18 years of age for contest administration purposes.
