This Privacy Policy, which is part of our Terms of Use, governs your visit to this Web site and any other Web site operated by Forest2Market, Incorporated (collectively, the "Sites”). This Privacy Policy sets forth how we collect, store, use, disclose and transfer the personal information you provide through any of the Sites. “Personal Information” is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.  Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, home and/or business address, phone number, email address, date of birth, as well as other non-personally identifiable information or demographic information such as your age, gender, income level, habits, or preferences.

Review this Privacy Policy before you submit any Personal Information to us on our Sites.   By accessing this Site, you signify that you accept and agree to all of the terms of this Privacy Policy, and the practices described in it as well as the Terms and Conditions of Use.  If you do not agree with any term of this Privacy Policy or the Terms and Conditions of Use, please do not use this Site or submit any Personal Information.

HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION. Generally, we do not ask you to provide any Personal Information to browse our Sites. However, certain information may be collected automatically to enhance the functionality of our Sites and to make your activities at our Sites more convenient and efficient, including, without limitation, your IP (Internet Protocol) address and other publicly available information, such as Internet browser information, operating system information, dates and times of a particular users visit and/or click path taken through the site, lookup information, and information that may be publicly available in connection with an IP address such as general location of the user, business names and contact information, to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site and identify our users. This aggregate information provides statistics that we use to analyze, market and improve our Sites and business. 

If you wish to participate in some of the features and services the Sites may offer, including features and services available to registered users, such as the purchase of any of our products, we may ask you to provide certain Personal Information and/or non-personally identifiable or demographic information.  Your submission of demographic information is generally optional and rarely required.  When such non-personally identifiable information is tied to you personally (i.e. with other personally-identifiable information), it will be treated as Personal Information.

We do not collect Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. In some instances, if you choose not to provide the requested information, for example in order to register with one of our Sites or to participate in surveys, you may not be able to access all of the areas on the Sites or participate in all of their features.   Users who affirmatively choose to receive communications from us via a wireless device may be asked to submit a cell phone number to receive text messages. 

We may collect Personal Information you provide while using our Sites during an online transaction (including your credit card or account information, the type of services or products ordered or purchased, shipping and billing addresses, and the date of the order or license purchase), any online account information, e-mail addresses, and other information you might provide to us. In the case of placing an order, this information is essential for verification and shipping purposes, and we may also need to contact you about your order. We will store your shipping and billing information if you create an account with us, but this information will not be used by anyone but F2M and vendors who provide services related to F2M’s services.  We may also offer the option to interact with one of our representatives directly while using the Sites in order to ask questions, request information, and to assist you in making a purchase or using our services.

If at any time you provide a third party’s Personal Information to us, whether in the form of a name, shipping address, photo, email address or other, you warrant that you have the permission of the person whose information you submit to share that information with us and you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless F2M and its affiliates and third-party service providers from and against any claims, liabilities, costs and expenses arising in connection with your sending or providing that information to us. 

COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES. Cookies are small files placed on your computer's hard drive by a Web site when you access the site, so that the site remembers your preferences when you visit subsequently.  Like many other Web sites, our Sites use cookies.  Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis.  If you do not accept our use of cookies on the Sites, you may modify your browser settings to reject cookies. If you modify your browser settings so that your computer does not accept cookies from us, then we cannot guarantee that all functions of the Sites will operate as intended.


FORUMS, LINKS & OTHER SOCIAL NETWORKING SERVICES. Our Sites may include discussion forums or other interactive areas or services, including blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards, online hosting or storage services, or other areas or services in which you or third parties create, post or store any content, messages, comments, materials or other items on our Sites (collectively, “Interactive Areas”). Interactive Areas are open to the public and any Personal Information you post or provide may be viewable by others. F2M is not responsible for any Personal Information you submit in connection with the Interactive Areas, nor is F2M responsible for how others might use that information. Interactive Area postings may be retained indefinitely.

For the convenience of our users, our Sites often contain links to other web sites which are not under our control.  F2M is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.  You acknowledge that F2M is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency, data collection, privacy policies, or any other aspect of the content of sites it does not operate or control. Your accessing the links to any other off-site pages or other sites is at your own risk and subject to the applicable privacy policies and terms and conditions of such websites. 

HOW WE USE PERSONAL INFORMATION. We may use Personal Information to communicate directly with you, such as to respond to inquiries, confirm registration information or your desire to opt-in to marketing communications from us, to inform you if you have won a sweepstakes or contest, to send you communications and offers by mail or email, to fulfill your request for an online newsletter or other online subscription service, to keep you informed about the status of any transactions, or to offer additional information about other database services, products, programs, services, promotions or offers that may be of interest.

We may use Personal Information to protect the security and integrity of our Sites, to correct technical problems and malfunctions on our Sites, to process your information, to take precautions against liability. 

We may use Personal Information to identify your product and service preferences, to improve our promotional offers, customer service and overall user experience on our Sites, and to research, develop, manage and improve our Sites. 

We may share Personal Information with third parties who provide services on our behalf.  These parties may use the Personal Information solely in conjunction with the specific services they provide for us (e.g., data processing, fulfillment of an order, managing and enhancing customer data, responding to your question or comment, providing a promotional prize, deployment of a consumer survey, investigation of a complaint, etc.).  Our service providers are obligated to protect your Personal Information.   We may also provide third parties with aggregate statistics about traffic patterns, and related site information. This data reflects site usage patterns gathered during millions of customer visits to our Sites each month, but it does not contain behavioral, profile, or identifying information about any individual user.  We also may transfer, sell or assign your personal information to third parties as a result of a sale, merger, consolidation, change of control, transfer of assets, reorganization or liquidation.  In that event, we will use reasonable efforts to require that the transferee use Personal information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to disclose any Personal Information as needed if such information is requested by law enforcement agencies or if we are required to do so by law, regulation, subpoena, court order or by a government entity.  We also may disclose Personal Information to third parties in response to legal request such as court orders, subpoenas, and specific requests from law enforcement agencies, if we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to conduct investigations of possible breaches of law or to cooperate in any legal investigation. 

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. F2M takes certain physical, electronic and administrative security precautions to maintain the security and accuracy of Personal Information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or alteration. Only authorized F2M personnel, including service providers, have access to the data.  Notwithstanding the above, due to the open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that any information stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from a user, will be free from unauthorized access.  By using our Sites, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of sharing Personal Information with us.

YOUR CHOICES REGARDING USE OF THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT. At any time, you may opt-out of having your Personal Information used for commercial purposes.  If you would prefer not to be contacted about our special offers, products or services, or if your Personal Information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), you may correct, update or delete/deactivate your personal information at any time by notifying us at the mailing address, e-mail address or phone number provided below:

If you opted in to a mobile messaging (e.g., SMS and MMS) offer but later decide you no longer wish to receive them, please follow the opt-out instructions included in the mobile message.

If you receive any online newsletter or similar promotional e-mail communication from us, you will always have the option of replying and inserting "unsubscribe" in the subject line, by following the “Update Email Profile” link located in the website footer, or by emailing us your changed preferences at any one of our Sites.  (If you use more than one e-mail address, then send your opt-out e-mail from, or ask to unsubscribe for, each of your e-mail addresses.). Your option not to receive promotional and marketing material will not preclude us from corresponding with you, by e-mail or otherwise, regarding your existing or past business relationships with us (e.g., any use of our services, fulfillment of a pending prize delivery, or responses to requests for information you pose to us either through use of the Sites or by other means), and will not preclude us from accessing and viewing your personal information in the course of maintaining and improving the Sites, our products or our services.

Because customer lists generally are prepared well in advance of a communication, you may continue to receive some offers after you send us a request not to use your information for specified marketing purposes. We appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to implement your request.


F2M does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13.  If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
