Fo-Martor the term “us”, “we”, or “our” refers to the owner of this website and provider of the services. The term “you” refers to the user or viewer of this website or any of the services provided by Fo-Mart. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information we receive from you.
In order for our sites, products, and services (collectively “services”) to function properly, we need to collect and use some of your personal information. We want you to understand what personal information we collect and how it is used.
While using our services or visiting any of our stores, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information. Personal information refers to information that is linked or linkable to you and may include the information listed below depending upon which of our services you choose to use.
Fo-Mart also automatically gathers and stores certain information in our server logs about the use of our services, including the number of unique visitors, the frequency of visits, how users interact with our services, user experience preferences, and other information that may help us improve the user experience, market our products, mitigate fraudulent activity, and comply with legal requirements. Such information may include personal information such as: IP address, Unique Device Identifier, content of web pages, transaction with APIs (Application Program Interface), transactions with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) systems, activity and content of visitor interaction with call center representatives; application usage activity, hardware information, hardware and system settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, or referral URL. Search queries may be saved and data later used to see which pages on the website garner the most attention from customers.
A cookie is a small data file that is managed by your web browser or other application and stored on your local system. We use session and persistent cookies to, among other things, identify your device during a particular interaction and analyze your behavior during a particular visit. Most web browsers provide you with the ability to accept or decline cookies, as well as to be advised each time a cookie is being sent. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully use our services.
Pixel tags, also known as web beacons, help us better manage user experience and content tracking. They also help us engage users who have searched for, viewed, and/or purchased our services or similar services. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, which provide a similar function to cookies and are used to track user interaction with content provided by us, an affiliate organization or a non-affiliated company to assist us in providing, maintaining and operating our marketing. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device hard drive, pixel tags are embedded within content. The small size and transparency of pixel tags are not intended to deceive content recipients, but rather minimize distraction.
Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative, http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/, that has developed a technical “flag” or signal that an end-user may be able to activate within their browser software to notify sites that they do not wish to be “tracked” by third parties as defined by the initiative. The initiative, however, has not reached a consensus as to exactly what technical or other actions those parties receiving the signal should take. As a result, Do-Not-Track has not yet been standardized and most sites, including our sites, do not alter their behavior or change their services when they receive a “do-not-track” flag or signal. You can, however, make decisions about your privacy and the advertisements you receive.
The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via these links:

Please note, however, that if you do decide to block cookies or similar technologies, some parts of our sites may not function correctly.

In addition, if Fo-Mart sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, Fo-Mart may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of that transaction.
We use commercially reasonable, industry standard technical, administrative, and physical controls to protect your personal information, including encryption where appropriate; however, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure the security of information during its transmission between you and us.

We will notify you of any confirmed security breach of your personal information to the extent required by and in accordance with state and federal law.
