THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Anonymous Information: Anonymous Information is aggregated data that websites use to administer their site. It may include information such as your browser type or your Internet Protocol (IP) address. From time to time we may retain third parties to help us collect and aggregate site visitor information.
IP Addresses: An IP address is a unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Site, avoid hacking attacks on the Site’s servers, and may use it to gather broad demographic information.
Personally Identifiable Information is any information that personally identifies you, such as your name, address, email address or your telephone number. Sometimes this personal information is needed when you contact us. We may ask you to provide us with personal information on a voluntary basis on certain areas of the Site. More specifically, you may be asked to provide the following information: name, postal address, email address, and telephone number(s).
Email correspondence: Scattered throughout the Site are links or forms that can be used to contact us so you can comment, make a complaint, make suggestions, and ask questions. Your email address is required on this form so we can answer your questions.
HOW WE USE GATHERED INFORMATION
The information you share with us may be used in a few ways:
Anonymous information is used internally for Site administration, troubleshooting, and to help improve the quality of the webpages. We may share such aggregated, non-personally identifiable information, such as demographics, with existing and prospective business partners and advertisers.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by us may be used for purposes including administration of the Site and communications with you. We may disclose personally identifiable information if we are required to do so by law, or strongly believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights and property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site; or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.
We may use the information collected to notify you of changes made to our Site, to send you promotional materials, and to determine what information and services users want the most. If you contact us for assistance or support, we may use your information to provide service and support to you. We may also provide the information to third parties who assist us in contacting customers about special offers and other Forward Kenosha services, programs, or events that would likely be of interest to you.
We support the right of our visitors to choose. If you decide that you do not wish to receive special offers or promotional communications, you can contact us at [email protected], indicating that you no longer want to receive information relating to the Site.

The Site incorporates appropriate safeguards to protect the security, integrity, completeness, accuracy, and privacy of the personal information we have collected. Therefore, we have put in place reasonable precautions to protect information from loss, misuse, and alteration. When surfing on a secure page, the lock icon showing in web browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked. Security of information communicated by – or to us over the Internet is of utmost concern to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that your email or other electronic correspondence with us through the Site, like most non-encrypted Internet communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users. This may happen while you are in transit, without your knowledge or permission. In order to protect your privacy, please do not use email or the contact forms provided through the Site to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us through the Site. Once we receive your transmission, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided throughout the Site.
DISCLOSURE OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION THROUGH BUSINESS TRANSFERS
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge, or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, acquired customer information may be one of the transferred assets. Similarly, in the unlikely event that a portion, or substantially all our assets are sold or transferred to a third party, customer information would likely be among them.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. The Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”) defines a “child” as anyone under the age of 13. We strictly adhere to COPPA. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information obtained through the Site from those we know are under 13, and no part of the Site is structured to attract anyone under 13.
