As of February 2015

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and share information we obtain through your use of (FDO40) and related services (the “Services”). This Privacy Policy does not govern our use of any information you provide when you call or write us or communicate with us in any manner other than through the Services. Due to the global nature of the Internet, information about you that we collect or you submit may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries other than the one in which you reside (including the United States). By joining FDO40 and using the Services, you explicitly consent to such use of your information and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

1. Information We Automatically Collect. We automatically collect certain information to help us understand how our members use the Services (i.e., Usage Data). For example, each time you use the Services we may automatically collect your IP address, browser and computer type, access time, the came-from and gone-to URLs, and the FDO40 website page(s) you access during your visit. We will use such Usage Data to diagnose problems with our servers and software, to administer the Services, and to gather demographic information.

2. Information You Choose To Submit. You can visit our public pages without revealing your name or any Personal Information. However, if you register to become a member of FDO40, you are required to provide certain Personal Information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address, phone number) and select a user name and password. We use your Personal Information to fulfill your requests for services and to contact you from time to time about us and our services.

3. Our Information Sharing Practices. (a) Generally. Except as otherwise described in this section of our Privacy Policy, we will never share your Usage Data or Personal Information with any third party without your permission. (b) Aggregated Data. From time to time we may share aggregated User Information with third parties; however, we will not share any aggregated data in a manner that would enable the recipient to personally identify you. (c) Service Providers. From time to time we may enter into relationships with third-party vendors (e.g., providers of data management and storage services, credit card processing services). In those circumstances we disclose User Information that is necessary for such service providers to perform those services and require that they maintain the confidentiality of such User Information. (d) Other Disclosure Scenarios. Notwithstanding anything in this Privacy Policy to the contrary, we reserve the right, and you hereby expressly authorize us, to share any User Information: (1) in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; (2) if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person or property; (3) if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding significant abuse of the Services infrastructure or the Internet in general (e.g., voluminous spamming, denial of service attacks, attempts to compromise the security of information); and (4) if we are acquired by or merged with another entity.

4. Public Information. If you identify any User Information as public, you are authorizing us to share such information publicly. For example, you may elect to share information such as your username or email in online social media forums (e.g., Facebook, Twitter). By choosing to use social media, you understand and agree that anyone may access, use, and disclose any information that you post to those sites.

5. Cookies. We may set and access cookies on your computer. Upon your first visit to the Services, a cookie is sent to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. A “cookie” is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer and stored on your hard drive when you visit a website. Many major Web services use cookies to provide useful features for their users. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent; however if you reject cookies, you will not be able to sign in to the Services or take full advantage of our Services.

We also may allow certain analytic services and providers of applications used on the Services (e.g., sharing buttons) to collect Non-personally Identifiable information by placing cookies on the Services that will track certain performance of our Services, such as web traffic and click-throughs, in order to assist us in better understanding the interests of our users and to better serve those interests.

6. Modifying and Deleting Your Personal Information. If you would like to modify any User Information you previously submitted to us, please access and update your account. Please note that any User Information we have copied may remain in back-up storage for some period of time after your request and that if you delete certain information you may not be able to use services in the future without resubmitting such information. Please note that we will maintain User Information in our database whenever we are required to do so by law.

7. Security. We have implemented reasonable measures to help protect your User Information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, while we strive to protect your User Information, we cannot guarantee its security.

8. Links. The Services may contain links to other websites (e.g., restaurant websites). We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any such other website and urge you to review such practices prior to submitting any information to such websites.

9. Changes. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If under any such update we make any material change to the way we treat your User Information, we will inform you of such change via email or by posting a notice on relevant areas of our website. Any updated version of this Privacy Policy will be effective as of the date set forth therein.
