We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Services. We also use this information to customize the content and layout of our Services, to improve our content, for editorial and feedback purposes, and for recordkeeping. We generally do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below. In order to access certain content, features, services, products, or benefits on our Services, you may be required to provide us with certain information, including some types of personally identifying information such as your name, postal and email addresses, interests, and phone number. If you do not wish to provide such information through our Services, you may not be able to obtain certain content, features, services, products, or benefits of our Services. From time to time, we may need to contact you regarding information you submitted to us, updates to our Services, and new products or services. You agree that we may use your personal information for such contact with you. We may also desire to contact you for market research purposes or to provide you with marketing information that we believe would be of particular interest. If you wish to opt-out of receiving promotional emails at any time, please click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email.
b. Registration. Members may be asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Services. This may include your name, username, physical and email addresses, phone number, billing information (such as a credit card number), the type of device being used to access the Services, and other personal information. The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes) and as set forth above. This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances as described below.
c. Partners and Sponsors. We may offer you products and services in conjunction with a third party, such as an affiliate, an independent contractor, a non-affiliated partner of our company, or a sponsor of our Services. To provide you with these products and services, the third-party partners and sponsors may collect and maintain personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred, and you may decide not to use that particular service or feature. Additionally, we may share non-identifying and aggregate information, but not personal information, with such third parties in order to administer the products or services offered. In instances where we jointly promote our Services with a third party, we may provide the third party with certain personal information (such as the names, usernames, postal and email addresses, and other personal information of persons who become Members as a result of the joint promotion) in order to provide and assess the results of the promotion. In this instance, personal information may not be used by the third party for any other purpose.
d. Online Shopping. If you order services or products directly from Green Flower, we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. At some websites linked to our Services, you can purchase third-party products and services or register to receive materials, such as a newsletter, catalog, or new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, username, physical and email addresses, phone number, and credit/debit card information. If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number.

However, we do share aggregated and non-identifying information with these advertisers about our Visitors and Members, including information collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions. Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements. For instance, an advertiser tells us the audience they want to reach and provides us an advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display or send the advertisement to the intended audience.
f. Responses to Email Inquiries. When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to us, we reply using the return email address provided. We do not use the return email address for any other purpose, and we do not share the return email address with any third party.

We may aggregate survey responses to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our Services and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.
