2. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
FIC and our service providers collect the following information from and about you:
Registration Information is the information you submit to register for a FIC Service, for example, to create an account, post comments, receive a newsletter, or enter a contest or sweepstakes. Registration Information may include, for example, name, email address, gender, zip code and birthday.
Public Information and Posts consist of comments or content that you post to the FIC Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture. Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.
Activity Information. When you access and interact with the FIC Services, we may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the FIC Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information.

Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. Websites, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the FIC Services, such as pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run and advertisements you have seen.
