Privacy & Disclaimer
Effective June 1, 2005
Frontera is committed to protecting your privacy. We believe it is important for you to know what types of information we collect from our Web site and how we treat information we may receive from our Web site.
The Types of Information We Collect
In general, you can visit our Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Our web servers collect the IP address of visitors. We may also seek to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive which allows the server to determine the computer when it visits again. We do this solely in order to track statistical information about navigation to and throughout certain areas of our site. This cookie is not used to obtain your name or any personal information from you, and the information that is tracked is used only for internal purposes, such as to improve site navigation and to measure the effectiveness of our promotional placements, and is not shared with anyone other than our affiliates and contractors who are bound to confidentiality. However, if you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.
In addition, there are portions of this Web site where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information you request or to send you news letters. The information collected from you may include your name, address, telephone, fax number, or e-mail address. For electronic access to annual reports and proxy statements, we may collect your tax identification number to verify your shareholder status. You can opt-out of certain uses of the personal information we collect from you. For more information on how to opt-out, please see below.
We do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from or about children, and we do not knowingly market our products or services to children.
Use of Collected Information
Information that we collect through cookies is not used to personally identify you. Instead, we use such information to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our Web site.
When personal information is collected from you, such as your name and e-mail address, we use such information you provide only to respond to your inquiry or to process your request (such as to receive electronic annual reports). This information may be shared with Frontera affiliates, but only if necessary to fulfill your request or for related purposes.
We may share the personal information you provide with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies – our vendors – are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide. We do not share, sell, or lease personal information about you to any third-parties for their marketing use. We will release information about you if you direct us to do so, if we are required by law to do so, or in other legally limited circumstances (for example, to protect your account from fraud).
With regard to personal information that you provide to us, you may give us, or decline to give us, your consent to use your personal information in certain circumstances. If you provide us with personal information, you will be given a choice at the time to opt out of certain uses of your personal information, such as providing newsletters to you or receiving updated information about us or our Web site. You may also opt out after registration by contacting us as described below.
