Privacy Policy

Furaxa, Inc. ("Furaxa") has established this Privacy Policy to demonstrate its firm commitment to privacy. This Privacy Policy governs collection, use and disclosure practices related to information obtained by Furaxa while a person accesses any content residing in the Internet domain (the "Website") and any linked or framed content accessed through the Website (all such content, including the content on the Website being referred to as the "Content"). All information so obtained is referred to in this Privacy Policy as the "Collected Information." Any person who accesses any Content is a "User."

In becoming a User, a person acknowledges to Furaxa that the person has read this Privacy Policy and the Legal Notices and that the person accepts and agrees to be bound by this Privacy Policy and the Legal Notices.

Information Collection & Use

Furaxa is the sole owner of the Collected Information. Furaxa will not sell, share, or rent the Collected Information to others in ways that vary from what is disclosed in this Privacy Policy. Furaxa obtains Collected Information at several different points on its web site. Personal information, such as a User's name, address and other contact information may be gathered from you on a voluntary basis. Users need not submit this information to use the site unless it is specifically required to access certain Content or to allow Furaxa to contact a user.


Some areas of the Website may require registration to access. Typical requirements include a User's e-mail address and some basic information about the User, such as name, company name and job function.


Users have the opportunity to subscribe to Furaxa's mailing list by filling out an optional form. In order to subscribe, a User is required to give basic information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the User about press releases, corporate announcements and the services on the Website site in which the User has expressed interest. Furaxa makes no other use of this information unless otherwise indicated on the Website or in future communications with the User.

Log Files & IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever its user accesses the Internet. Web servers like the one(s) hosting the Website automatically identify computers by this number.

When Users request Content from the Website, the Website's server(s) log(s) the User's IP addresses. Furaxa does not normally link IP addresses to personally identifiable information, which means that a User's session will be logged, but the User remains anonymous to Furaxa. Unless otherwise indicated, this information is not shared with anyone outside of Furaxa and/or its designated contractors. When shared with contractors, usage is for the purpose of analyzing user trends and demographics. No IP addresses will be shared with third parties.

That said, Furaxa can and will use IP addresses to identify Users when Furaxa feels that it is necessary to enforce compliance with law, Furaxa's Legal Notices or this Privacy Policy, or to protect Furaxa's services, Website, customers or others.


A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user's hard drive containing information related to the user. Furaxa does not use cookies to identify particular Users unless a given User has consented by registering for access to restricted parts of the Website or registering for one or more mailing lists. Furaxa uses cookies to enhance the User experiences in using the Website by such means as storing password or User preference information. If a User rejects the cookie, the User may still use the Website with the only drawback being the disablement of some of the usability features of the Website. Some of Furaxa's business partners or others (such as advertisers) may use cookies placed by the Website, or may place their own cookies, but Furaxa has no access to or control over such practices.

Users always have the option of disabling cookies by simply turning off their browsers' functions that accommodate cookies. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. Users can, however, reset their browsers to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.

To disable cookies in Netscape 4.7, for example, simply go to "Preferences" under the "Edit" drop-menu. Select the "Advanced" option and select "Disable Cookies." Click "OK."

To disable cookies for Internet Explorer 5, for example, go to "Internet Options" under the "Tools" drop-menu. Select "Internet" within the "Security" tab and click on "Custom Level." Select "Disable" for both stored and per-session cookies. Click "OK."


Furaxa partners with various third party contractors to help process orders and provide other services. To Furaxa's knowledge, these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.


This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Furaxa is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. Furaxa encourages Users to be aware when they leave Furaxa's site and to read the privacy statements of each and every other website Users access. The restrictions and limitations on Furaxa's use of Collected Information pertain only to Collected Information and do not apply to information collected by third parties, whether such information is collected incidental to Users' access of Content or otherwise.


The information collected at this web site is stored in a secured database, which is password protected and encrypted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Correction/Updating Personal Security

If a User's personally identifiable information changes (such as the User's zip code or email address), or if a user no longer desires to access Content service, Furaxa will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that User's personal data provided to Furaxa. This can be done by emailing Furaxa's customer support staff through one or more links on the Website.


In certain cases where Furaxa is aware of actual or potential secondary uses for User information, Users will be given the opportunity to "opt-out" of having their information used for purposes not directly related to the Website at the point where Furaxa asks for the information.

Users who no longer wish to receive press releases, corporate announcements, or promotional materials may opt out from receiving these communications by replying to such e-mail with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject line of the emailed reply or by e-mailing Furaxa's customer support staff.

Requirements of Law

Furaxa may release account information whenever it believes in good faith that such release is reasonably necessary to comply with law, enforce or apply the terms of any user agreements, or protect the rights, property or safety of the Website, its Users or others.

Notification of Changes

If Furaxa decides to change this Privacy Policy, it will use commercially reasonable efforts to post those changes as a link on its homepage. If, at any time, Furaxa decides to use personally identifiable Collected Information in a manner different from that stated in the privacy policy in force at the time such Collected Information was collected, Furaxa will notify Users by e-mail to the User's last e-mail address known to Furaxa.
