Personally identifying information, or personal information, includes your name, home or other address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other information that tells another person who you are. When you register as a flopalongs.com member, we ask for some personal information such as your e-mail address, birthday, physical address, phone number(s), and interests. This allows us to send you rewards from time to time. We also may collect personal information when you contribute an article, video, or other feature for flopalongs.com. This allows us to credit you by name.
Please Note: Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on message boards, in e-mails, or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others. If you post personal information in public places, others may send you unsolicited e-mail messages. Always be cautious about the information you provide online.
Our primary goal in gathering your personal information is to provide you with a personalized experience and send you prizes as you qualify. Currently we do not customize the content you see based on any information you have provided, but we eventually intend to do so. Essentially, we will compare your profile with other member profiles, and based on their interests, we will make predictions about your interests. Based on these predictions, you may see specialized content, including advertising banners. Advertisers will never have direct access to any of your personal identification information.
If you are a member, we will send you e-mail notices about products, companies, and events that we think might interest you. If you do not want to receive these messages, simply tell us that when you give us your personal information. Or, you can easily edit your flopalongs.com profile to indicate that you no longer want to receive these messages. After you log in, just click on "My Account". This will direct you to pages where you can review and modify your membership information and profile.
If you are a customer and choose not to become a member, we only collect personal information that is essential to fulfilling your order and notifying you of your order status. Additionally, you will automatically be added to our periodic shop email newsletter and catalog mailing lists. If you want us to remove you from these lists, you have two ways to do this: 1.) When you receive your first email newsletter, you can opt-out of future mailings from us by following the opt-out instructions in the newsletter (this is to opt out of the email newsletter only). 2.) You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your message should state that you do not want to receive any emails or any catalogs from flopalongs.com
We also may match information obtained from cookies with data provided by you. This allows us to analyze this data both in the aggregate and in connection with individual users. This information lets us tailor our services to your interests. We also provide the analysis of our users (as a group) to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties. We do this so that our advertisers and us understand your needs and interests better, which allows us keep bringing you cool stuff free of charge.
Finally, we may disclose user information when we are required to by law, or when we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other flopalongs.com users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
