Thank you for using this website, which is owned by the Florida Phosphate Council (“Florida Phosphate Council,” “we,” “us,” or “our”).
Some of the information we collect through the Site may be “Personal Information” – information that identifies you personally, alone or in combination with other information available to us. Other information may be non-personally identifiable, such as information collected by IP addresses.

For example, we collect information when you sign up for email updates, ask us a question, or otherwise interact with our Site. Some of the information you manually provide may be Personal Information.

Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes your IP address, the identity of your Internet service provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings.

More About IP Addresses. Your IP address is the identifier assigned to your particular computer when you access the Internet. Depending on how you connect to the Internet, your IP address may always be the same, or it may change each time you access the Internet. IP addresses do not include your name, email address or other Personal Information, but in some cases, they can be used to identify you. For example, if you have registered with our Site, we may link your IP address to other information that identifies you personally. If we suspect inappropriate or criminal activity or a threat to our Site or their users, we may also share our server logs—which contain users’ IP addresses—with the appropriate investigative authorities, who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
- support the features and functionality of our Site—for example, to save you the trouble of reentering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits; and
- personalize your experience when you use our Site, including by serving targeted advertisements.
Generally, the information we collect using these web technologies does not identify you personally.

Steps We Take to Safeguard your Personal Information
We maintain reasonable administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Information you submit on or through the Site. Unfortunately, no website, app or database is completely secure or “hacker proof.” We therefore cannot guarantee that your Personal Information will not be disclosed, misused or lost by accident or by the unauthorized acts of others.
How We Share Your Personal Information with Others
Third–Party Service Providers and Members. Florida Phosphate Council shares Personal Information collected through our Site with third-party service providers, its members, and Florida phosphate manufacturing industry partners.
Compliance with Laws and Protection of Our Rights and the Rights of Others. We may disclose your Personal Information when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law, a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose your Personal Information to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to protect the security of the Site; to enforce or apply other agreements; or to protect our own rights or property or the rights, property or safety of our users or others.

Business Transfers. Your Personal Information may be transferred to a successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of the Site to another organization, if we merge with or are acquired by another organization, or if we liquidate our assets.
