Our Policy – as of march 1, 2015
FLO Components has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our personal information gathering and dissemination practices for this website, flocomponents.com.
The consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal information may be implicit or explicit, depending on the circumstances. In some cases, consent need not be in writing.
At FLO, we sometimes collect personal information from consumers via direct mail, questionnaires, contests, magazines, by phone, and through our web sites or other on-line means. However, we will not collect such information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly.
USE AND DISCLOSURE
At the time we collect your personal information we will explain how we will use it. If you specifically agree to follow-up contacts by us or ask to be put on our contact list, we may also contact you from time to time. Personal information shall be used and disclosed in a manner consistent with the purpose for which it was originally collected or in any other way the law does not prohibit. The consent of the individual shall be obtained before personal information is used or disclosed for any other purpose, unless the law otherwise permits the proposed use or disclosure. We will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties. Access to personal information shall be restricted to those who have a need for access in order to administer FLO programs or carry on FLO activities and to individuals for information about themselves.
Any information provided can be updated at any time by advising FLO accordingly. Please refer to our Contact Us page for contact information and methods.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We will not share any information you give us with anyone outside of FLO except when required or permitted by law, and with those suppliers that need to have access to the information to provide the services you have requested.
Website hosting, storage and management of electronic communications, and data processing within FLO may be done via servers located outside of Canada. Some of our supplier as described above may also be located outside of Canada. As a result, your personal information may be accessible to regulatory authorities in accordance with the laws of other jurisdictions, including without limitation, the United States Patriot Act.
