COOKIES AND SIMILAR COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES
When you visit our website we may collect certain information by automated means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, browser analysis tools, server logs and web beacons. For example, we may collect information about the device you use to access our website, your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. Our server logs also may record the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet, our Site pages that you visit, the time and date of your visit. We may also collect information about the website you were visiting before you came to FHA and the website you visit after you leave our site.
In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is only used in a non-identifiable way, without reference to PII. For example, we use information we collect about website users to optimize our website and to understand website traffic patterns.
In some cases, we do associate the information we collect using cookies and other technology with your PII. This Policy governs how we use all of this information when we associate it with your PII.
FHA has relationships with third party advertising analytics companies to perform tracking and reporting functions for our web processing. These third-party advertising companies may place cookies on your computer so that they can display targeted advertisements to you. These third-party advertising companies should not collect PII in this process, and we do not give PII to them as part of this process.
EXTERNAL DATA STORAGE SITES
We may store your data on servers provided by third party hosting vendors with whom we have contracted.

FHA uses industry-standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, and we make good-faith efforts to store PII in a secure operating environment. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect PII, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to, and you do so at your own risk.
