Privacy Statement

Fortbendstar.com is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. Fortbendstar.com will use its best efforts to ensure that information submitted by individual users remains private, and is used only for the purposes described below.

Fortbendstar.com may collect personal information from its individual users in connection with commercial transactions between fortbendstar.com and an individual user (for example, advertising transactions between the parties), from contest registrations, from content submissions, or from suggestions, corrections and event submissions. Personal information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise provided to unaffiliated third parties unless the user specifically approves of the transfer at the time of collection.

Fortbendstar.com reserves the right to collect aggregate information about its users, such as what areas they visit most frequently, what services they access the most, and how often they click on a particular banner advertisement. Fortbendstar.com will provide only aggregate data from such analysis to third parties.

Individual users should note that if a third party collects personal information from a user as a result of a click-through banner advertisement placed on the fortbendstar.com web site, then fortbendstar.com is not responsible for the actions or privacy policies of such third party. In such a case, individual users should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party before providing personal information because such activities are beyond the control of fortbendstar.com.

Cookies are used to tailor a web site or advertisements to better match the users' interests and preferences.
