Information collection and use
There are several methods by which Fwoopi collects Personal Information. We may collect Personal Information from individuals as voluntarily disclosed via our websites, in person, over the phone, through the postal mail service or electronic email.
Where we collect Personal Information, we make clear the nature of the information and the specific purpose(s) for which it is used.
While recognizing that all Personal Information deserves to be protected, Fwoopi exercises special precautions and safeguards for any Sensitive Information we may collect. Sensitive Information includes Personal Information specifying medical or health data, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of the individual or details of a conviction or criminal offense.
Fwoopi does not collect Sensitive Information regarding its customers or vendors, unless it is required or authorized by law or unless the customer or vendor has provided its express consent.
Fwoopi provides a specific detailed "Privacy Notice" to its customers, vendors and employees describing what Personal Information we may collect, how we use it, when it may be shared with others, choices of what Personal Information an individual may provide, and how we safeguard its confidentiality. Where a legal requirement exists, we will request consent from individuals to the collection and use of that information as set forth in the Privacy Notice.
We collect Personal Information that is knowingly and voluntarily provided to us related to the following:
CUSTOMER: Fwoopi collects and processes Personal Information about our customers in order to efficiently provide our services.
VENDOR: Fwoopi collects and processes Personal Information about any vendor we retain in order to ensure that we are able to contact our vendors when necessary and to ensure that Fwoopi's standards of service/care are met.
EMPLOYEE: Fwoopi collects and processes Personal Information about its employees to carry out human resources management and to provide benefits for employees.
Fwoopi may contract with other companies or individuals ("Third Party Service Providers") to perform certain duties on our behalf. In so doing, it may be necessary that we provide Third Party Service Providers with access to Personal Information. Our Third Party Service Providers are required to maintain the confidentiality of the Personal Information and are restricted from using the information for any other purpose than the purposes defined by Fwoopi.
We take appropriate measures, by contract or otherwise, to provide adequate protection for Personal Information that is disclosed to our Third Party Service Providers and we take reasonable measures to ensure that our Third Party Service Providers have sufficient legal, organizational and technical procedures in place to protect Personal Information in accordance with applicable data protection law.
We also provide Personal Information to government agencies and regulatory and legal authorities as required by law or regulation.
Fwoopi's internal and external websites may provide links to third party websites. Upon accessing these links, the Fwoopi website is automatically exited. Fwoopi controls neither the websites nor the privacy practices of third parties. The privacy practices of third parties may differ from Fwoopi's. We do not endorse or make any representations about third party websites.
