Collection and Use of Information
FST will only collect your personal information (such as your name, address, or telephone number) if you provide it to us voluntarily.
In addition, we automatically collect certain information regarding visitors to our Site, including information about your equipment, browsing actions and usage patterns. The information we collect automatically is statistical data and does not include personal information. We use this information solely for internal purposes, such as to improve our Site.
FST, on its own or through third-party vendors, occasionally uses first-party and third-party cookies together to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past visits to our Site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our Site may include your IP address. The techniques FST’s third-party vendors employ do not collect any personal information. You can visit this page and this page to opt out of this advertising.
Our Site uses Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to help us understand, in aggregate, the age, gender and interests of Site visitors. This Google Analytics tool does not reveal to FST your name or other identifying information. FST does not combine the information collected through use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. The information received from Google Analytics is used only to improve our Site and the type of information displayed to Site visitors so we can better serve those interested in FST. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to our Site by using Google Analytics’ Opt-out Browser Add-on, available on this page.
FST works with an advertising agency and occasionally hires other companies to provide services on our behalf, for example, to process event registrations. FST will provide these companies only with the information they need to deliver the services, and they are contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
At any time, while accessing our Site, any visitor may decline participation in any activity that would require providing information (e.g. Request for Information). Your decision not to participate will not affect your ability to use any other feature on our Site.
FST offers you opportunities to engage in blogs, and social networks like Facebook and Twitter that are designed to be visible to other users, including comments and postings. You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you choose to submit via those media can be read, collected, and used by other participants and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit when you engage in such activities.
FST has implemented a number of security features to help prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal information. Although we strive to create a secure and reliable Site for you, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from FST via the Site or email cannot be guaranteed.
