Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

FImetrix has created this privacy policy ("Policy") in order to demonstrate our commitment to our visitor and customer privacy and the right of privacy throughout the Internet. Privacy on the FImetrix website is of great importance to us, and as such we have established this Policy as a means to communicate any information gathering practices that may be utilized throughout this site.

Cookies

Cookies are files that web browsers place on a visitors computer hard drive and are used to allow a more enjoyable visit with easier use of site and to more accurately track visitor behaviors to our site. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. Cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser, unless you choose to identify yourself voluntarily. You may choose to identify yourself for any one of the following reasons: asking the browser to remember your username and password, by responding to a promotional offer, when personalizing a web page or requesting more information on a product or service, otherwise you remain as an anonymous web site visitor.

To this extent, FImetrix employs the usage of a single cookie for a single purpose...accessibility. Fimetrix takes great care in designing a site that is accessible by virtually anyone, while still maintaning a consistent look and feel to the website. As a consequence, some users may find our choice of font type/size difficult to read. Keeping the goals of this website in mind, FImetrix implements a site-wide font type and size changer to provide maximum accessibility.

This functionality requires the use of a persistent cookie. This cookie sets and collects two pieces of data, the current font type and current font size. When accessing the FImetrix website, this feature checks for the existence of a cookie previously set. If no cookie is found, then the default font type and size specified in the design is assumed. Upon adjusting the font type and size, the cookie is then set and/or updated to reflect the user's selection. This enables the user's font preferences to be stored and activated the next time the site is acsessed by the same user. In no way is any personally identifiable data collected through the use of this technology on FImetrix.com.

Clear Gifs

Clear gifs (a.k.a Web Beacons) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear gifs are not tied to users' personally identifiable information.

FImetrix does not utilize clear gifs in any means.

Third Party Sites

The Site may contain links to other web sites. FImetrix is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other web sites. Customers and visitors will need to check the policy statement of these others web sites to understand their policies. Customers and visitors who access a linked site may be disclosing their private information. It is the responsibility of the user to keep such information private and confidential.
