Federated Co-ops Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on www.FederatedCoops.com. Federated Co-ops Inc. collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site. You can access our Web site home page without disclosing your personal data. We collect personal data that you may volunteer while using our services.

Newsletter
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications.

Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.

Children's Privacy
