Cookies

Like many websites, we use “cookies,” which are small text files that are stored on your computer or equipment when you visit certain online pages that record your preferences. We use cookies to track use of our Websites and online services and to help ensure the security of those connections between your devices and our servers. We may also use cookies to monitor traffic, improve the Websites, and make it easier and/or relevant for your use. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies.

We may also use web beacons (i.e. an “action tag”, “tracer tag,” or “single-pixel GIF”) – an invisible graphic on a web page or e-mail newsletter that allows us to collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of a given website or newsletter, e.g., whether you opened the e-mail. Like cookies, web beacons allow First3Years and its technology providers to summarize overall usage patterns for our analysis and provide improved services to you. We do not share or provide personally identifiable information we may collect through such web beacons, such as names or e-mail addresses, without your permission.

General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a European Regulation concerning the use and processing of personal information. We are committed to processing your information in compliance with the GDPR upon its effectiveness on May 25, 2018.

The Website is published in the United States and is subject to laws of the United States. If you are located in a country outside the United States and voluntarily submit personal information to us, you thereby consent to the general use of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to the transfer of that information to, and/or storage of that information in, the United States.
