Fen Industrial Inc. does not collect, use or disclose personal information of individuals except when individuals give consent and provide the information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where more specific personal information is necessary for Fen Industrial Inc.to proceed with a request for information, or provide a product or service; for example in cases of account information, or feedback forms. In such cases, Fen Industrial Inc. will describe the information required. In all such cases, Fen Industrial Inc. limits the amount and type of information collected to only the personal information that is required to provide the individual with the requested information, product, or service. Fen Industrial Inc. collects only information that is voluntarily provided by the individual and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential.

Safeguarding Personal Information
Fen Industrial Inc. respects the privacy of its members, partners, potential website visitors and internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible. Personal information is stored in electronic and physical files that are secure. Security measures include secure locks on filing cabinets, and using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and restricted access to computers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Fen Industrial Inc. strives to protect personal information, it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or received from it electronically. This is especially true for information transmitted via e-mail. Fen Industrial Inc. has no way of protecting that information until it reaches it. Once a transmission is received, Fen Industrial Inc. makes its best efforts to ensure its security on its servers. Internally, access to personal information is restricted to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These employees are limited in number, and are knowledgeable about and committed to our privacy policies.
