Collection of Personal Information
When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as ordering products, downloading software, or entering contests, FML may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, FML may require that you provide us personal information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and other personal identifying information. When ordering products on the site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number.

When you submit personal information to FML, you understand and agree that FML and its subsidiaries, affiliates and trusted vendors may transfer, store, and process your customer profile in any of the countries in which FML and its affiliates maintain offices, including without limitation, the United States.

FML collects this information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you order a product, for example, the information is used to register your license and rights, if any, to technical support, upgrade discounts, or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. If you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. FML also uses information that you provide as part of our effort to keep you informed about product upgrades, special offers, and other FML products and services.

FML recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of this information. If you do not want the information you provide to FML to be used to inform you of other products and special offers from FML, and you indicate this preference when you provide the information to FML, FML will honor your preference. In addition, FML may selectively provide certain information to other companies or organizations that have products or services we think may interest you. If you do not want the information you provide to FML to be shared with other companies, and you indicate this preference when you provide the information to FML, FML will honor your preference.

Your personal information is password-protected to prevent unauthorized access to it. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone.

Use of Cookies
