Users may also call FS&T and we can process your order over the telephone.
On occasion, FS&T may market products, send newsletters, and survey and solicit feedback from Users to help improve the products, services, and information provided. These information requests are strictly voluntary. Users may opt-out of receiving these communications at that time.

Is my information secure?
FS&T believes User data must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. The Internet service provider who hosts the Web site uses procedural and technical safeguards (such as backup files, virus detection software, firewalls and other computer software and hardware) to protect User personal information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect User privacy, including encryption, firewalls, and routers. While FS&T and our Internet service provider employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by Users inside and outside FS&T, perfect security does not exist on the Internet and FS&T and its affiliate’s do not ensure or warrant the security of any information Users transmit to on the Web site.
