CFIC will not sell or rent your personal data to third parties. In the course of business development, we may elect to purchase or sell assets or business offerings. In these types of transactions, customer, email, and visitor data is usually one of the business assets transferred. We may also assign or transfer this information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.
We may disclose or share your information with your consent, such as if you elect to sign on to the Website through a third-party service. We cannot control the use of your information by third-parties.
