Privacy Policy

The Federal Market Group is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. FMG collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site that is necessary to provide a service or product to our customers.

Below are the areas on the FMG Web site where FMG collects data.

Data Collection on FMG's Web Site

Registration/Ordering Publications
While you may freely browse our online course catalog and list of publications online, you will need to register in order to sign up for a course or purchase any materials from our on-line store. After selecting a course or publication, you will be directed to a log-in area where you will be asked for your e-mail address and a password. Both serve to protect access to your personal information submitted within this secure registration/order area of the site.

If you choose to take an FMG course or order an FMP publication, information collected during the registration/publication order process includes: your name, title, organization, e-mail address, phone number, fax number, mailing address, billing/shipping address and billing information such as card, card type, number and expiration date. FMG uses the e-mail address, fax number and mailing address to provide additional information (course location, start date etc.) about your selected course. Our customer service representatives may also use the information to contact you in the event that they need to clarify your registration or publications order.

FMG asks for the name, mailing address and phone number of your organization’s training director/human resources director and approving manager. This information is optional and is not required. FMG uses this information to inform decision-makers via mail about other FMG training opportunities. The phone number is collected as a secondary contact for billing purposes.
