Information We Collect & How We Use It
FC doesn’t make money from ads. So, we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do at FC is to make our service work as well as possible.
In order to give you the best possible experience using FC, we collect information from you and your customers using our service. Some of this information, you actively provide us during checkout (such as your warehouse and billing email address or your customer’s email address, which we use to track their shipment or communicate with them for clearance). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using FC, such as app installation, invoicing and order fulfillment. This information includes records of those actions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information.
We use this information to:
- provide, test, improve, promote and personalize FC Services
- fight security issues and other forms of abuse
- generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how consumers use FC Services
Wen you create your FC account, we may collect, store, and periodically update information associated with your account.
FC won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third- party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you.
We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonomization; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.
If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.

We maintain two types of logs: application logs and server logs. By using FC Services, you authorize FC to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate.

To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, we may maintain residual copies for a brief time period. But, if you delete your account, your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time. FC may preserve and maintain copies of your information when required to do so by law.
We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.
Email from FC
Sometimes we’ll send you emails about your account, service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of this type of “transactional” email (unless you delete your account). But, you can opt out of non- administrative emails such as digests, newsletters, and activity notifications through your account’s Settings tab.
When you interact with an email sent from FC (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction. We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please send it to us so we can investigate.
Changes to this Policy
FC may periodically update this Policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it.
