Privacy Policy

The purpose of this website is to provide information about the FDMC Program to the general public.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, our computer system employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

At FDMC, we are always conscious and respectful of your personal privacy and we recognize the importance of protecting your personal information. FDMC has provided this Privacy Policy to inform you how we intend to treat your Personal Information. Most visitors to this web site will not leave any Personal Information; however, we believe you should be aware of the extent of information gathered. That being said, this Privacy Policy will answer any questions you may have about the kind of information we may collect and how we may use it when you visit our website and/or send us e-mail.

Information Collection and Use

Except for authorized law enforcement investigation and to maintain required correspondence files, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used to simply determine how many users are accessing the site, which pages are the most popular, and, from time to time, from which top level domain users are coming.

When you send us e-mail, we do retain the content of the e-mail, your e-mail address, and our response in order to handle any follow-up questions you may have. We also use this information to measure how effectively we address your concerns.

Information Sharing

We do not sell, rent, or lease your name or any other personal information to anyone. We occasionally contract with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

FDMC will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law to: (1) protect and defend the rights or property of FDMC; (2) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on FDMC; and, (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of FDMC customers, visitors to FDMC’s website and/or the public.

Protection of Personal Information

We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection

While none of the FDMC webpages are directed towards children, we are committed to comply with the United States’ Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). If a child has provided us with personally-identifiable information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should e-mail us to remove the information and cancel the e-mail subscription.

FDMC’s programs provide accessible products, documentation, services, and websites recognizing that Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, mandates that when the federal government purchases most electronic information and technology (EIT), including software applications, it must ensure that the EIT provides access to and use of, information or data to federal government employees with disabilities that is comparable to the access provided to federal government employees without disabilities.

Moreover, under the act, the federal government is also obligated to provide access to information and data to members of the public with disabilities that is comparable to the access provided to the public without disabilities, but also provides ease-of-use for those that do not have disabilities. We understand the importance of Section 508 requirements to our customers. The regulations adopted by the federal government to implement Section 508 generally require U.S. government agencies to purchase software solutions that are most compliant with Section 508 requirements. In addition, other customers, including state governments and international bodies, increasingly require compliance with accessibility standards when making procurement decisions. Beyond the legislative compliance, we recognize that universal design and accessibility are good business strategies.

We are committed to providing accessible software products and documentation through the ongoing evolution of our business. Recognizing that accessible software also provides ease-of-use, we incorporate universal design into our planning process. As we develop our products, documentation, services, and websites, we test them with assistive technologies and with operating system accessibility extensions to assess their compliance with applicable Section 508 accessibility criteria established by the federal government. The extent of compliance with the Section 508 accessibility criteria currently varies by product. Upon request of an eligible customer, we will provide information detailing the extent to which specific products, documentation, services, and websites of interest to the customer support the applicable Section 508 accessibility criteria.

As accessibility requirements, standards and methodologies evolve, our customers can be assured that they will continue to have access to the most current product evolution made available in our efforts to meet current and future accessibility requirements for disabled users.

FDMC will occasionally update these privacy statements. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date at the bottom of this page.
