Please note your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us.

Other Information and “Cookies”
You should also be aware that when you visit the Website, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with “usage data,” such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide on the Website.
Like most commercial website owners, we may use what is known as “cookie” technology. A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website is able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address.
Linking To Other Sites
In the rare and unlikely event of link sharing, the Website may provide links to other websites, not owned or controlled by Fingerprinting Express, that we think might be useful or of interest to you. We cannot, however, be responsible for the privacy practices used by other website owners or the content or accuracy of those other websites. Links to various non-Fingerprinting Express websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by Fingerprinting Express of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them. We will do our best to choose our partners carefully.
Compliance is important to us.
Fingerprinting Express has adopted and adheres to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public Personal Information on the Website against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure.
