However, we may provide aggregate information and statistics about our customers, sales and related site-information to our third party vendors, but this information and statistics will include no personal identifying information. Please note that we may release PII in good faith as is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or protect our rights or others’ rights.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post changes on this page and note the effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. If we materially change our practices regarding collection or use of your PII, your PII will continue to be governed by the Policy under which it was collected unless you have been provided notice, and have not objected to this change.

This Website is a general audience website and we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age.  If we learn that we have PII of a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (PII)
When you enter an order or submit an order, we need to know your name, email address, mailing/shipping/billing addresses, phone number, credit card number and expiration.

When you create an account, we need to know your name and email and we may request other information about you.

We may use the information you provide to create and verify your account profile; fulfill your order;  provide you with information and customer service in response to your specific request or respond to any of your other inquiries; provide you with information on the Company’s services, either on a personalized or aggregate basis; improve the content and navigation on the Website; enforce our Terms of Use; resolve disputes, prevent and detect fraud and otherwise help us to comply with the law, regulation and/or legal process. If you would like to access and modify the personal information you have provided, please contact us at info@familyhistoryexpos.com.

We may share your PII with outside contractors or agents who work on our behalf to help us manage our informational activities, but they may only use your PII to provide us with a specific service and not for any other purpose. 

Any communications that you submit or post to an interactive feature such as a blog or message board may be viewable by other users of the Website. While we may remove PII about you, we assume no obligation to do so. We are not responsible for, nor can we guarantee protection of, any PII you submit or post to the interactive features of the FHE Website. Therefore, you acknowledge and understand you have no expectation of privacy in the content you submit to the Website’s interactive features, whether or not it contains your PII.

The information practices of these third party advertising companies are governed by their own privacy policies and are not covered by this privacy policy. Some of these advertising companies may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"), a cooperative of online marketing companies that offers a centralized tool for opting out of behavioral advertising delivered by each of its member companies. If you would like to obtain more information about the NAI and make choices about their members’ use of your information, please visit the NAI website at www.networkadvertising.org.  Also, through the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA"), several media and marketing associations have developed an industry self-regulatory program to give consumers a better understanding of and greater control over ads that are customized based on their online behavior across different websites. To make choices about interest-based ads from third parties participating in the DAA, please visit the DAA consumer opt out page at www.youradchoices.com.
