FBVA Privacy Statement

Privacy on fbva.org - An Overview

This site is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of consumers of its interactive products and services. Throughout cyberspace, we want to contribute to providing a safe and secure environment for consumers. 

The purpose of this privacy policy is to inform you, as a welcome visitor, what kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit this site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information. 

Please note that this policy applies only to FBVA, and not to other companies' or organizations' Web sites to which we link. If we link to another site, that site will appear in a new window and not within a frame or any part of our site. 
 

Information About All FBVA Visitors

In general, our site automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its areas, very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use such data in the aggregate. This aggregate data helps us determine how much our customers use parts of the site, so we can improve our site to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many of you as possible. For example, FBVA uses a technology nicknamed "cookies" that tells us how and when pages in our site are visited, and by how many people. These cookies do not collect personally identifiable information and we do not combine information collected through these cookies with other personally identifiable information to tell us who you are or even what your screen name or e-mail address is. We also may provide statistical "ratings" information, never information about you personally, to our FBVA partners about how our members, collectively, use our site. We do this so they too can understand how much people use their areas and our site in order for them to provide you with the best possible Web experience as well. Finally, FBVA, its advertisers and ad servers may also use cookies, as well as small pieces of code called "web beacons" or "clear gifs," to determine on an anonymous basis which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them, but do not use these technologies to collect personally identifiable information unless you give us permission to do so. 
 

Information About You

If you are an FBVA member, when you access FBVA you may obtain access to features of our service that contain personal information such as e-mail notifications. Additionally, we may specifically ask for personal information when you order a product or service. We will need certain information -- such as name, email, billing address, type of computer, credit card number -- in order to provide that service or product to you. We may also use that information to let you know of additional products and services about which you might be interested. You can choose not to receive such information if you don't want to by letting us know on the registration screen when you sign up for the product or service. We may ask you for information about your interests so that both you and we can take advantage of the interactivity of the online medium, but you may always choose to respond or not. 

We also use cookie technology in order to improve your experience, including to remember your preferences or customized settings when you use FBVA and its related services, and to authenticate your access to your personal information. 
 

Disclosure

We do not use or disclose information about your individual visits to FBVA or information that you may give us such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to any outside companies. 

FBVA may share such information in response to legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or in special cases such as a physical threat to you or others. And, as we mention above, we may share with our Web site partners aggregated statistical "ratings" information about the use of FBVA. 

Kids on FBVA

We takes special care to protect the safety and privacy of young people using our services, and encourages you to participate in your child's experience in cyberspace. FBVA is a youth recreation organization which strongly solicits total involvement by parents. The only information we knowingly collect about children is through on-line registration which must be done by an adult via credit-card. This information is kept private and confidential by best in class business practices. 

Privacy Policy Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy we will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information and whether we will disclose it to anyone. 

Questions regarding the above statement should be directed to FBVA
