Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. When you visit our site, we do not collect any personal, identifying information about you unless you volunteer that information in our online survey. We do not use individual survey information for commercial purposes nor do we share this information with any other organization. You will not receive any unsolicited email from us as a result of using our website or completing our survey.

We do not place a "cookie" in your browser files (among other things, cookies allow websites to be customized for each user) except in the following situations:

1. If you elect to "turn off" the hyperlink alert (the popup box that informs you that you are leaving fundingyourfuture.org when you click on a link to another website), a cookie is placed in your browser to disable the alert for as long as your browser is open. Because it is not a permanent cookie, you will need to "turn off" the hyperlink alert each time you visit our site in order to disable it for that visit. If you do not want this temporary cookie in your browser file, leave the hyperlink alert on.

2. If you select the "skip intro always" option as you enter the site, a cookie is placed in your browser that will skip the intro each time you visit the site for one year. After that, the cookie expires and on your next visit, you will need to reselect the "skip intro always" option. If you wish to view the intro again during the year, you may either delete the cookie from your browser (see your browser help files for how to do this) or visit Federal Solutions Needed Now and click on "Everyday Investors Discussing Financial Security."

In addition to information you choose to provide us through our survey, we gather information about how our site is used. For instance, our web server automatically collects each visitor's domain name (the internet name of the organization through which the visitor connects to us; examples of domain names include ici.org, sec.gov, and aol.com). We also collect aggregate information about user visits, such as when the site is visited most often and which areas of the site are accessed most often.

We use both kinds of information—the information you volunteer through user surveys and the information we automatically collect—to analyze how to improve our site. We also use this information to report to our member organizations aggregate statistics on how the site is used.
