As we operate internationally, and our computer systems are currently based in the United States, your personal data will be processed by us in the U.S. where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.
We may collect personally identifiable information (your name, address, telephone number, age and email address) when you voluntarily subscribe to a service offered on our Website. This information is used solely by FBC or other companies who are involved in the operation of the Website. FBC does not sell, share or disclose this information to third parties.
FBC does not seek to collect such information from persons under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not submit any such information to us. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 18 who has provided such information to us, please inform us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove such information from our database.
By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. If you accept the first tracking cookie from frenchbroadchocolates.com, you won’t be offered as many afterwards.
FBC collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers, if applicable. An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the web. Web servers—the big computers that “serve” up web pages—automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When guests request pages from frenchbroadchocolates.com, our servers log their IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.
FBC employs reasonable measures to maintain all personally identifiable information provided by you on computer servers in a controlled and secured environment in an effort to hinder unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of such information. However, the nature of the Internet is such that information may be transmitted over networks without appropriate security measures and may be accessed, deleted, altered, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons.
FBC may make modifications or amendments to this policy from time to time. In the event that such changes alter how FBC gathers, processes, uses or discloses your personally identifiable information, FBC will post such changes on our site.

FBC is always interested in hearing from you regarding our business products and services.

Any such material will either be sent back to you or discarded.
We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by FBC might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. It has been our experience that while you may believe that a submission or idea is unique, in many cases, such submission or idea resembles other submissions or ideas that FBC has received, whether solicited or unsolicited, or are similar to projects that are being created by or on behalf of FBC. While we do value your feedback on our business products and services we request that you be specific in your comments on those products and services. Therefore, please do not send unsolicited submissions of any kind to FBC, including, without limitation, any unsolicited creative suggestions, stories or ideas, concepts, notes, formats, artwork, or other similarlyrelated materials.

Without limitation of the foregoing, to the extent it has the legal right, FBC shall exclusively own all nowknown or hereafter existing rights to the Submissions of every kind and nature and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions or any other person or entity.
