Privacy Policy

Thank you for reviewing the Privacy Policy for compositesforecasts.com, your web portal into Composites Forecasts and Consulting, LLC. CFC is sensitive to the issue of confidentiality in online dealings and is committed to protecting individual privacy. This Privacy Policy is intended to inform users about the general approach CFC uses in collecting, using and disseminating user information via compositesforecasts.com. What data do we collect automatically and why? When you visit compositesforecasts.com, our web server automatically recognizes your domain name, but not your e-mail address. We collect the domain name and monitor general site use and traffic patterns to improve our web site and the products and services we offer. CFC uses web server logs to collect data for metric purposes. Examples of the types of data collected on the logs are IP addresses, referral pages, date and time of Site access, and Site visited. Do we use Cookies or Tracers? Cookies are small data files placed on your hard drive by a website server when you visit. CFC.com may use cookies for tracking purposes or to make the Site easier to use. Cookies are currently the only way to effectively identify a unique anonymous visitor and understand how they navigate our web site. An anonymous visitor to our site remains anonymous in all cases. We do not attempt to identify visitors if they do not voluntarily submit personal information to us. With most internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Cookies offer enhanced functionality to the user, but whether you allow a cookie to be placed on your computer is up to you! Do we collect personal information? In some cases, CFC requests personally identifiable information from you in order to satisfy the underlying transaction or purpose of your accessing the Site. Examples of personally identifiable information include names, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, and the like. Please note that we do not consider aggregated information, from which personally identifiable information has been removed, to be private. What security is provided? We do not treat your general interaction with compositesforecasts.com (e.g., submission of suggestions) as confidential. However, our site does conduct e-commerce for which heightened security is appropriate. In this cases, we encrypt your personal information (e.g., for transmission of credit card data), so that only appropriate personnel are able to decode your information. Note that most internet browsers also offer security alerts that permit you to determine whether your transmissions are protected. When would we disclose your information? We do not rent, sell, or trade any personally identifiable information about you (e.g., e-mail addresses) to third parties. We may disclose information to third parties assisting us in processing  a transaction requested by you (e.g., credit card service providers). In order to cooperate with legitimate governmental requests, subpoenas, or court orders, to protect CFC and customers, or to ensure the integrity and operation of CFC, we may access and disclose any information it considers necessary or appropriate under the circumstances. What if data is transmitted internationally? If you are one of our international guests, we realize that you may want to know whether your personal information will be transferred out of your country of origin. Please be aware that when you register or request a transaction on compositesforecasts.com, your personal data may be transferred to computers in the United States in order to process your request. What about third party links? For the convenience of our Site visitors, CFC may provide links to third party web sites that are external to CFC. These web sites are not operated or controlled by CFC, and CFC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external web sites. Policy Updates? From time to time, CFC may revise this Privacy Policy at its discretion. We note the date of the policy at the top of this section, so you know when it was last updated. CFC advises you to check back periodically to review the Privacy Policy because users of the Site will be prospectively bound by the then-current version of this Privacy Policy.
