  • Links to Other Websites


When you send us E-mail we won't keep or share your E-mail address with anyone outside of FCFB staff and its contractors.  If you sign up for one of our (E)mailing lists we will send you periodic information on the FCFB and will request donations via email, as well.

Information Collection

When you visit our Web site we collect certain information about your visit that does not identify you personally. We can tell the type of computer, browser, and Web service you are using. We also know the date and time you visit and the pages you visit. Collecting this information helps us design the site according to your needs.

Sometimes we use "cookies," which are small amounts of text stored on your computer. We only use "session cookies" in some places where people can transact business. That means we only store the cookie on your computer during that visit. So, if you are entering information for a business transaction, you won't lose the information if you go to another site and come back during the visit. After you turn off your computer or stop using the Internet, the cookie is erased. If you don't want us to put a "cookie" on your computer, just follow these instructions. You will still be able to use the entire Web site.

Site Security

We monitor visits to the Web site to identify any attempt to tamper with it.

When you submit personal information using our Web site –– for example, if you sign up for a donation online –– we have systems that make sure people outside of FCFB cannot access your personal information.

We would only try to identify you personally when required to do so by a law enforcement investigation. Any information we collect for those investigations is destroyed according to federal guidelines.

Tampering with FCFB's Web site is against the law. If anyone tries to tamper with it, they may be punished under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986.

Links to Other Sites

Our Web site has links to many other Web sites. When you go to another site, you are subject to the privacy and security policies of that site. FCFB cannot attest to the accuracy of information provided there.

Linking to a Web site does not constitute an endorsement by FCFB, or any of its employees, of the sponsors of the site or the products presented on the site.

If you have any questions, please contact the FCFB webmaster.
