It is the goal of my Website to bring you information that is tailored to your individual needs and, at the same time, protect your privacy. The following is a summary of the various ways I treat the information you provide me while using my site.
THE TYPE OF INFORMATION THE WEBSITE COLLECTS
The Website generally collects personally identifying information with your specific knowledge and consent. When you complete a question form, make a purchase, subscribe to any publication(s), or register for any portion of my services, you are asked to provide information such as your e-mail address, name or phone number. Optional information such as your wedding date or other information may be required.
HOW THE WEBSITE USES INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU
Service Provider uses information you supply through the Website to provide you with the service you have requested. For example, if you make a purchase from our store website, www.weddingflowersinc.com, I may use your e-mail address to send you a confirmation notice and your mailing address to send you the product order.
Service Provider does not sell users' e-mail addresses. I do NOT share e-mail addresses and sell or share all other information with any other affiliates or companies. The only time you receive an e-mail from me is when you ask a question, place an order or request to be put on a web newsletter.
I also allow access to my database by third parties that provide me with services, such as technical maintenance but only for the purpose of and to the extent necessary to provide those services. And if you choose to purchase items through features on my site, I may forward your information to third parties for services such as credit card processing and order fulfillment. <BR><BR>
There are also times when you provide information about yourself to me in areas of the site that are managed or participated in by third parties, such as Google Ads or shopping areas (links that take you to another website selling goods). In such cases, the information may be used by us and by such third party(ies), each pursuant to its own policies. I may also provide your information to my advertisers (such as Google AdSense), so that they can serve ads to you that meet your needs or match your interests. While Service Provider will seek to require such third parties to follow appropriate privacy policies and will not authorize them to use this information except for the express purpose for which it is provided, Service Provider does not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of third parties.<BR><BR>
There may also be occasion when I am legally required to provide access to my database in order to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings. In those instances, the information is provided only for that purpose.
