General Information We Collect and How We Use It
We collect Visitor Information when you use our Sites. Sometimes you may submit it to us yourself. Other times it may be collected automatically.
Information Collected When You Use Our Sites
Your Visitor Information may be collected, used, and shared. As detailed below, the type of Visitor Information collected may vary based on how it was gathered, but may include, among other things, your name, email address, and other information that you voluntarily submit (e.g., when you request to receive our e-newsletter subscription), information automatically collected about your usage of our Sites that does not include personally identifiable information (e.g., the content that you choose to view and how you interact), and information about you that third parties may share with us if such third parties have previously received your consent to do so.
FOSKETT does not collect or process any data regarding race or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or philosophical beliefs; trade union memberships; genetic or biometric data; health or mortality; sexual orientation.
FOSKETT may collect Visitor Information that is voluntarily provided by you or with your permission. For example, we may ask you for information, such as your name and e-mail address, when you register to receive our e-newsletter.
The Sites may contain links to websites not owned or controlled by FOSKETT. FOSKETT does not have any control over these third-party websites and does not endorse them. We encourage you to be aware of third-party websites and their privacy policies, as we are not responsible for privacy policies or practices of third-party websites.
FOSKETT may contain electronic images known as web beacons (invisible images often referred to as pixel tags or clear GIFs) on the Sites in order to recognize users, assess traffic patterns, identify preferred content, and measure Site engagement. We may also include web beacons in our e-mail messages, including e-newsletters, in order to count how many e-mail messages have been opened, for example.
FOSKETT’s servers log information about your IP address, your browser type, and the current URL you are requesting. This information is always provided by your browser and automatically logged. These log files are stored in a secure location and used in our internal analysis of traffic patterns.
Cookies and Similar Tools
A cookie is a small data file that is written to a computer’s hard drive by a web browser. A cookie file can automatically collect information, such as a user identification code or IP address that a website will use to track the pages and number of times you have visited. The data read from these cookies may be linked to personally identifying (PII) and non-personally identifying (non-PII) information.
Cookies fall into the subcategories below.
Essential Cookies. Certain cookies are used for specific purposes that are essential to your secure use and navigation of the Sites. Without them, FOSKETT may not be able to provide core Site functions and features to you, and the Sites would not operate as well as you or FOSKETT would like. These cookies collect and use information such as your server preferences, single-session data and corresponding identifier, web beacons and log files, and other credential-related information. Essential cookies also help inform FOSKETT whether you require, or have already been served, an affirmative consent request in connection with our data policies. Essential cookies also include analytics cookies, which provide us data that allows FOSKETT to better understand its users and improve the Sites based on what we have learned from that data.
Preference Cookies. Other cookies are used to collect and process information about your preferences and similar choices in connection with the Sites in order to optimize your browsing experience. Preference cookies include social media cookies, which collect information about your social media usage and other data you may have provided in connection with such usage (if you access the Sites through a social media website or mobile application, you may have social media cookies). If you wish to modify or change your social media cookies, please visit and review the settings related to your applicable social media account(s).
Services providing analytic tools (“Analytic Services”), including without limitation Google Analytics® are being used with the Sites which transmits website traffic data to servers in the United States. Analytic Services do not collect personal information, identify individual users, or associate your IP address with any other data.

Use of Your Information
Your Visitor Information may be used for the purposes outlined below.
To Provide Communications to You
From time to time we may provide e-mails highlighting new features, promotions, or content on the Sites to those users who have expressly provided us with their permission to send such communications.
Sharing of Information
You may be requested to voluntarily provide certain Visitor Information during your use of our Sites. If you choose to do so, that Visitor Information may be shared with FOSKETT and its affiliates as well as business partners and vendors providing hosting and other web-based services for FOSKETT.
FOSKETT uses third parties to provide e-mail messaging, text messaging, account management and hosting services for the Sites. When you sign up for services, we will share your Visitor Information as necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited from using your Visitor Information for any other purpose. If you do not want your information to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer of your information by not using that particular service.
As Necessary to Provide Information or Services
We may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of e-newsletter mailings, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service. In some instances, these companies may collect information directly from you and you will be notified of the involvement of the external service provider. Such companies are subject to agreements that require them to maintain the confidentiality of your information and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
In the Event of Change in Ownership or Control
As Required By Law
FOSKETT may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law, investigate fraud or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on FOSKETT, or to protect and defend the rights or property of FOSKETT.
FOSKETT will not process your Visitor Information without a lawful basis to do so. In general, FOSKETT will process your Visitor Information on the legal bases of consent, contract (if you have entered into an agreement with us and such processing is a necessary part thereof), or legal obligation (as noted above).
How We Protect Your Information
Your information may be stored on servers owned and operated by FOSKETT and its affiliates or by cloud/software service providers (“SaaS Services”) and located in the United States. Our SaaS Services are committed to using industry-standard physical, electronic, and organizational safeguards to protect information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect individuals’ privacy and to employing security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access.
However, it must be noted that “perfect security” does not exist today. If you are concerned that your privacy may have been breached, please contact us.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Sites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our Sites.
