In some instances, data collected on this website will be stored on the database of various service providers we utilize in the delivery of these educational programs. While, The FAMEE Foundation chooses vendor partners with strict privacy policies, data collected and stored on their servers will be subject to the Privacy Policies of these firms.

The voluntary submission of your personal information to these affiliates, including your order or request, and your response to their surveys, if any, will be governed by the specific provider's terms of usage and privacy policies. To facilitate an order or request, or your participation in a survey, we may share your personal information with the provider. The affiliate may also share your personal information with us, or with third parties if permitted by the affiliate's privacy policy.
