Flaming Chocolates respects your personal privacy. The security of your personal information is a priority.
The personal information we collect may include information such as your name, username, password, billing address, shipping address, telephone numbers, email address, and credit and debit card information. In some cases, such as when you ask us to ship an order or you purchase a gift or gift card, we may collect information about someone other than you, such as the name, address, telephone number and email address of the recipient.
We record information about the pages viewed by all of our website visitors. This data includes internet protocol (IP) address, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, connection speed, read time, display time, and number of clicks.
We use this data, in aggregate form, to compile statistics and reports for our own use, and to improve the online experience for all visitors.
We may, occasionally, provide portions of this aggregate information to vendors, consultants, potential advertisers, or news agencies. Typical uses of the data in this fashion would be to gauge the amount of interest in our site and/or to plan for site infrastructure improvements.
When posting information to other social networking sites (e.g. posting a link to our Facebook or Instagram pages, or “liking” a product on your Facebook account, or “pinning” a product on your Pinterest account), the personal information that you post or share in connection with these third-party sites is visible to other persons and can be read, collected, used and disclosed by other persons. Any information provided to such third-party social networking sites and other sites is outside of our control and is not governed by this policy.
Flaming Chocolates may also use targeted advertising service providers to tailor Flaming Chocolates advertisements to your preferences. These advertisements may appear on our website or social media sites, or on third party sites. If you have opted in to receive email, we may use your email address to target advertising to you. You may unsubscribe from Flaming Chocolates' email by using the unsubscribe link in any email.
If you place an order online, we only require the information needed to complete the processing of your orders and billing. We may also share our users’ personal information with outside shipping companies and credit card processing companies in order to bill and ship your order, but we do not provide any more information than necessary for these purposes. We may also use the information to contact you regarding your order.
We use appropriate security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access. Any personal information you provide to Flaming Chocolates in connection with a product order is exchanged on a secure server. We use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, to encrypt, or encode, information you send to us in the order process. The encryption process protects information, such as your credit card number, and billing and shipping information by scrambling it before it is sent from your computer. Only once we receive your information is it decoded, and we make all reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our own systems.
Warning: Email is not a secure means to send personal information, as it is not encrypted.
When you use any Flaming Chocolates Service, or send emails, text messages, and other communications from any device to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you electronically in a variety of ways, such as by email, text, or by posting notices and messages on the flamingchocolate.ca site. You agree that all agreements, notices, messages, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Flaming Chocolates marketing email is sent only to users who opt in or current customers. Our subscriber database is never sold, rented or loaned to any other parties. Those wishing to opt out of receiving Flaming Chocolates emails can do so by using the unsubscribe link in any email.
We collect aggregate information regarding open rates, page views, and generated sales from our HTML email newsletters. Aggregate information does not personally identify individuals. Subscribers concerned about collection of aggregate information may unsubscribe by using the unsubscribe link in any email.
Flaming Chocolates reserves the right to cooperate with local, national, or international law enforcement or other authorities in the investigation of improper or unlawful activities and this may require the disclosure of personal information. If such an investigation requires disclosure of personal information kept in our records, we may be required by law to cooperate. We also reserve the right to report improper or unlawful user activities on our site, which may require the disclosure of personal information relating to those individuals conducting such improper or unlawful activities. There may also be other circumstances under which we are required by law to disclose personal information.
In addition to the above purposes, Flaming Chocolates may collect personal information when you:
Flaming Chocolates will retain personal information for as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the identified purposes, or as otherwise required or permitted by law. Flaming Chocolates will take reasonable steps to destroy, erase or render anonymous personal information that is no longer required to fulfill the identified purposes.
We strive to ensure that any personal information we retain and use is as accurate, complete and up-to-date as necessary for the purposes for which we will use it.
