Users may not use content from FEI's Services unless Users obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant Users the right to use any branding or logos used in FEI's Services.

The information, products, and services ("Services") hosted on and from forexfactory.com are provided by Fair Economy, Inc. ("FEI"), located at 100 North Tampa Street, Tampa, Florida 33602, United States. In the process of using FEI's Services, users of the Services ("Users") may provide information that is collected by FEI. This policy explains how FEI stores and uses that information.
FEI collects and uses information, including Personal Information, to provide better services to all Users – from determining basic information, such as which country a User is connecting from, to more complex information, like how a User navigates the FEI website ("Site").
Personal Information ("Information") is information that Users provide to FEI which personally identifies them, such as a name, email address, or other data that can be reasonably linked to such information by FEI, such as information FEI associates with Accounts.
Users may deliberately provide Information to FEI. For example, many Services require Users to create a member account ("Account"), which requires Users to provide a valid email address. Users may also add Information to their member profile, including where they live, their occupation, name, age, or other data that can be reasonably linked to such information by FEI.
FEI collects information about Users' activity on our Site, such as browsing history, search history, and information regarding Users' interaction with our Platform and other websites. FEI uses various technologies to collect and store location information, including cookies, pixels or pixel tags, local storage, such as browser web storage or application data caches, databases, Session Replay, and server logs. FEI may also collect anonymous Information from Users without their explicit consent. For example, FEI may collect information about the Services that Users use and how they use them, which device the User is using (such as hardware model, operating system version, and unique device identifiers), and which keywords Users' search.
Session replay provides FEI with the ability to replay a visitor's journey on a web site or within a mobile application or web application. Replay can include the user's view (browser or screen output), user input (keyboard and mouse inputs), and logs of network events or console logs. Session replay is used to help improve customer experience, analyze usability, and help identify obstacles in conversion processes on websites. It can also be used to study a website's usability, customer behavior, interests, and the handling of customer service questions as the customer journey, with all interactions, can be replayed. It can also be used to analyze fraudulent behavior on websites.
FEI may collect and store information locally on Users' devices using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches. FEI uses various technologies to collect and store information when Users visit a Service, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to Users' devices.
Users may set their browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with FEI's Services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by FEI. However, many Services may not function properly if Users' cookies are disabled.
FEI uses Information from all Services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect FEI and Users. FEI also uses Information to offer Users tailored content and ads.
When Users contact FEI, FEI may keep a record of Users' communications to help solve any issues Users might be facing. FEI may use Users' email addresses to inform them about Services, such as letting Users know about upcoming changes or improvements.
FEI uses Information to operate, maintain, supervise, administer, improve, and enhance the FEI website and related Services, features, and functionality. FEI uses User's contact information to communicate and interact with them, such as to send Users emails and text messages about FEI's Services. FEI uses the IP address assigned to User's devices to send Users the data they request to display on their devices. FEI uses unique identifiers stored in cookies on User's devices to help FEI authenticate Users as the person who should have access to certain areas and features of FEI's website. FEI also uses Information to ensure its websites are working as intended, such as tracking outages or troubleshooting issues that Users report to FEI. FEI also uses Information for research and development for FEI business, and to make improvements to its websites.
FEI uses data collected from Users and their devices for analytics and measurement to understand how its websites are used. For example, FEI analyzes data about User's use of FEI websites to accomplish tasks such as optimizing Services. FEI uses a variety of tools to do this, such as Google Analytics and similar third-party online data analytics services.
FEI uses information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve Users' experience and the overall quality of Services. When showing Users tailored ads, FEI will not associate a cookie or anonymous identifier with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or health.
FEI will ask for Users' consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this policy.
FEI processes Information on servers in many countries around the world. FEI may process Information on a server located outside the country where Users live.
FEI does not share Information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of FEI, unless one of the following circumstances applies:

FEI may also share Information with professional advisors, such as auditors, law firms, and accounting firms.
FEI may share Information with companies, organizations, or individuals to enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations, detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of FEI.
FEI may also use de-identified information, so that it cannot be reasonably used to identify any individual, with third parties for marketing, advertising, research, or similar purposes.
Users can generally opt out of receiving interest-based advertisements from third-party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website. FEI does not control third parties' collection or use of Information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide Users with ways to choose not to have Information collected or used in this way. Users can also opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the NAI on its website. You can learn more about interest-based advertisements and User's opt-out rights and options on the NAI website and DAA website.
If Users do not wish to have their email address used by FEI to send them advertising messages and content, Users can opt-out at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any marketing emails Users receive from FEI. Users may have other options with respect to marketing and communication preferences through FEI's websites.
FEI restricts access to Information to FEI employees and contractors who need to know the information in order to process it for FEI, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and will be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
