We may transfer your personally identifiable information if we are acquired by or merged with another company, in which event we will notify you before your personally identifiable information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet or e-mail is not completely secure.

Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

We will strive to give you access to your personally identifiable information for any purpose, including to request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Francium is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical or require disproportionate technical effort, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made by contacting us at contact@francium.tech.

Francium will protect your company’s confidential financial information that is included in any information request form submitted to Francium through the Service with the same level of protection that we apply to personally identifiable information under this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to third-party websites that may be accessed through the Service. We may provide links to other websites that contain information that we believe may be useful to you or that you will find valuable. But we have not investigated the security of those linked websites, and you should not assume those sites have a privacy policy equivalent to ours. If you access such a third party website through a link we provide, you will be subject to the privacy policy of the new site. We are not responsible for the contents of any linked third party web pages referenced through the Service. If you have any questions regarding the privacy, security, or content of any third party websites, you should contact the appropriate contact(s) at those websites directly.

We may update this Privacy Policy, and any updates will be effective upon posting through the Service. We encourage you to periodically check back and review this Privacy Policy so that you always know what information we collect, how we use it, and if and to whom we may disclose it. You may update the personal data you provide to us during registration by contacting us at contact@francium.tech.
