In order to avoid your e-mail address or other personal information from being gathered and used by others for inappropriate or harmful purposes, Future Groep advises that you should be cautious about posting a real e-mail address or other personal information to newsgroups, chats, or other public forums.
Use of your Personal Information
The personal information collected on this Site will be used to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) or carry out the (trans)action(s) you have requested or authorized. In support of these uses, Future Groep may use personal information for no other purposes than to improve the Site and any related Future Groep products or services, and to make the Site easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customizing the Site to your particular preference or interests. With your permission, and with your permission only, we may send you information about other Future Groep products and services, and/or share information with Future Groep Subsidiaries so they may send you information about their products and services.
When you sign up for a newsletter or agree to receive promotional e-mail, Future Groep may use customized links or similar technologies to track e-mail links that you click. We may associate that information with your personal but anonymous information in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications. Each e-mail communication includes an unsubscribe link allowing you to stop delivery of that type of communication.
Future Groep occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Security of your Personal Information
Future Groep and its subsidiaries are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. Additionally, when we transmit sensitive personal information over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content, eases site navigation, and so on. When you return to the Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the site’s features that you customized.
Web beacons, also known as clear gif technology, or action tags, may be used to assist in delivering the cookie on our site. This technology is a tool we use to compile aggregated statistics about Future Groep website usage, such as how many visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on a Future Groep webpage, blog or a newsletter. We may share aggregated site statistics with partner companies.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of this or other Web sites you visit.
Use of Web Beacons
Future Groep webpages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes called single-pixel gifs – that allow Future Groep to count users who have visited those pages. Future Groep may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. Doing this allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views. Future Groep prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
Changes to this Statement
We may occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date at the top of the privacy statement. For material changes to this privacy statement, we will notify you either by placing a prominent notice on the home page of our Web site or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.
Future Groep welcomes your comments regarding this privacy statement.
