Pixels. Pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third-party analytics providers may place pixels on the Site that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting the Site). Our third-party analytics providers use information obtained from pixels to help us improve our business and the FFF Services. We do not control the use of pixels by third parties.

We may disclose your information, including personal information, to any affiliated entity or organization, business partner, and to agents and service providers to help us operate the FFF Services, improve our business or the FFF Services, and to provide services to us. These third parties may include customer service providers, business or sales service providers, or providers that provide support for the FFF Services. Use of information by affiliated entities and service providers will be subject to this Policy or an agreement at least as restrictive as this Policy.

D. Disclaimer. We cannot ensure that all of your personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy.

No transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure.
4. INFORMATION SECURITY MEASURES. We exercise care in facilitating the transmission of information between your device or computer and the third party servers that operate and store information for the FFF Services. The personal information we collect is stored in operating environments that are not available to the public.

5. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY.
A. The FFF Services are not for or Directed Towards Children. While the FFF Services are not intended for anyone under the age of 18, we do not intend to and will not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. Children under the age of 13 are prohibited from using the FFF Services. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information immediately and delete it from our servers. If you believe information from a child under the age of 13 has been provided to the Service, please notify us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
B. California Minors. While the FFF Services are not intended for anyone under the age of 18, if you are a California resident under age 18 and you believe your information has become publicly-available through the FFF Services and you are unable to remove it, you may request removal by contacting us at: email@example.com. When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information is located, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) the information was not posted by you; (3) we anonymize the information so that you cannot be identified; (4) you do not follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the information. Removal of your content or information from the FFF Services does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information from our systems or the systems of our service providers. We are not required to delete the information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the information or render it invisible to other users and the public.
6. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS; CALIFORNIA SHINE THE LIGHT LAW. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties to whom we have disclosed personal information (if any) for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request, please send an e-mail with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org or write us at: FFF Enterprises, Inc., 44000 Winchester Road, Temecula, CA 92590

Linked Sites are governed by their own user agreements and privacy policies, which you should be sure to read. We are not responsible for and do not control any content you may share on a Linked Site and access to any Linked Site is solely at your own risk.
9. ACCESSING, UPDATING, OR DELETING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. You may access, update, or delete your personal information by contacting us at: email@example.com. We will make good faith efforts to resolve requests to correct inaccurate information except where the request is unreasonable, requires disproportionate technical effort or expense, jeopardizes the privacy of others, or would be impractical. If your Account is terminated for any reason, your information will no longer be accessible through your Account or associated with your Account. However, activity that occurred prior to deletion may still continue to be stored on our systems or the systems of our service providers indefinitely.
