What happens when I leave ftn.fedex.com or worldtariff.com to visit a FedEx Trade Networks linked web site?
Parts of ftn.fedex.com and worldtariff.com may consist of products and services hosted by third parties. When you leave ftn.fedex.com or worldtariff.com to visit one of these sites, the only information transferred to the third party is the fact that you came from ftn.fedex.com or worldtariff.com (the referring address). This practice allows the third party to monitor its own web site traffic, but does not provide them with any information about you. FedEx Trade Networks is not responsible or liable for the independent privacy policies of our third party sites. You should consult the privacy policies at those sites to determine how your information may be used.
