Welcome to Forte Distribution, accessible at https://forte-distribution.com. We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors and service users. This policy outlines how we collect, use, maintain, and disclose information collected from users of our website.

Information Collection and Use

  • Comments: When you leave a comment on our site, we collect data shown in the comment form, your IP address, and browser user agent to help with spam detection. An anonymized string (hash) may be created from your email address and provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. Upon approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
  • Media: If you upload images to the website, avoid images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
  • Cookies: We use cookies to enhance your experience. If you leave a comment, you can opt-in to save your details in cookies, so you don’t have to fill them in again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may

include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Data Sharing and Retention

  • Data Sharing: We do not sell, trade, or rent users’ personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates, and advertisers for the purposes outlined above.
  • Data Retention: We retain comments and their metadata indefinitely to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Your Rights Over Your Data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any

data you’ve provided. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Data Processing

Comments on our site may be checked through an automated spam detection service to maintain the integrity and quality of user interactions.

Third-Party Services

We may use third-party services, such as analytics or advertising partners, to improve our website and services. These third parties may collect information about your visits to our site and other websites to provide targeted advertisements or other personalized experiences. Please review their respective privacy policies for more information on how they handle your data.

Security Measures

We take appropriate measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information stored on our website. These measures include encryption, secure socket layer (SSL) technology, and regular security assessments of our website.

Children’s Privacy

Our website is not directed towards children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us immediately so that we can take appropriate action.
