Format Solutions (Format) considers the responsible use of personal information to be a critical element in enabling the Internet to reach its potential as a serious tool for personal and professional activities. As the Internet changes our lives in a number of ways, Format is committed to respecting your privacy.
In general, you can visit www.formatfauna.com without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.
There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name, home or business address and e-mail address. Format will seek to let you know before we collect any personal information from you over the Internet. Some examples of when we may need information are if you choose to purchase a product directly from Format websites, subscribe to the automatic notification service, or when you register a new product. When you choose to give us personal information over the Internet that we or our business partners may request, Format will endeavor to let you know how we will use this information. Format will also seek to take appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us, including using appropriate technology for credit card data used in electronic commerce transactions.
When Format receives information about your session or about you, we may use it for research or to improve our site and the services we offer you. We will ask you if you want us to use that information to continue contact with you by Format and our business partners via e-mail or other means — for example, to send you new product information or notification of special offers. If you do not want us or our partners to contact you, you can choose to “opt out,” and Format will endeavor to respect your wishes.
In general on www.formatfauna.com, IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) are logged to track a user’s session while the user remains anonymous. We analyse this data for certain trends and statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. In general, we do not link your IP addresses to anything personally identifiable to you, except in the cases of certain personalised subscription services (such as automatic notification service), which utilise session data to improve the service. In those limited cases where session information is not anonymous, Format will provide notice of the practice and an opportunity to “opt out.”
Some Format web pages use “cookies,” which are small files that may be placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. A cookie helps us remember who you are and can make your subsequent visits to the web page simpler and more seamless. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. However, by not accepting cookies, some web pages may not display properly or you may not be permitted to access certain information.
If you have any questions or comments about our privacy practices, would like to stop receiving information from Format, or would like to correct or update information provided to Format via its website, please contact us by either clicking on the “contact us” button on the bottom of every page on www.formatfauna.com or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
