Collection and Use of Personal Information
FMG and the parties with whom we work (e.g., service providers, business partners) may place, view, or use “cookies,” web server logs, web beacons, or other electronic tools to collect statistical and other information about your use of this website and other websites. This information may include information about the IP address of your computer, browser type, language, operating system, your mobile device, geo-location data, the state or country from which you accessed this web site, the web pages visited, the date and the time of a visit, and the websites you visited immediately before and after visiting this web site.
FMG and the parties with whom we work may use the information collected for various reasons, either on behalf of FMG or for the other parties’ own purposes, including research, analysis, to better serve visitors to the website (such as by enabling log-in, providing access to certain sections of this website, providing customized content, or presenting online advertising on this website or other websites tailored to your interests as described further below), to compile aggregate and anonymous information about usage of this website and other websites, and other statistics. However, if you have deleted and disabled cookies, these uses will not be possible to the extent they are based on cookie information.
Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to disable cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. Likewise, most mobile devices allow you to disable the ability for geo-location information to be collected from your mobile device. The help function on most browsers and mobile devices contains instructions on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies, disable cookies entirely, or disable the collection of geo-location data. You need to set each browser, on each device you use to surf the web. Thus, if you use multiple browsers (e.g., AOL, Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), you should repeat this procedure with each one. Similarly, if you connect to the web from multiple devices (e.g., work and home), you need to set each browser on each device. However, if you disable cookies or refuse to accept a request to place a cookie, it is possible that some parts of this website, such as the polls, surveys, contests, and product sales, and certain areas of the website for which you need to log in, will not function properly, and the advertising you receive when you visit this website may not be advertisements tailored to your interests.
FMG adheres to the industry’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising.
