Unless otherwise defined, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, and we strive to implement and maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information we store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. However, please be aware that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, and you should not expect the absolute security of your Personal Information.

Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure channels such as email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.

Where Information Is Processed

Our information processing facilities are based in the United States. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information for us, please note that we transfer the information, including Personal Information, to the United States and process it there.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to—and maintained on—computers located outside of your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

Your Choices About Collection and Use

If you have a Flora account, you have the ability to review and update your Personal Information within the Service. You can delete the Content you have posted by either following the instructions in the Service or submitting requests via email to eraser@flora.appfinca.com. Content you delete will be hidden or anonymized from other users. However, we may maintain a copy of such Content in our records. Please be aware that while information can be hidden or anonymized, it may not be possible to completely remove the information (such as when the Content is jointly created by multiple users) and that there still may be unwanted effects (such as when others had already seen the Content). So we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your Personal Information.

If you wish to back-up the whole or part of your Content, you will need to do so yourself. We do not undertake the obligation of backing-up user content.

You also have control over the collection and use of your Personal Information in the following areas of our Service:

Do Not Track Disclosure

We do not support Do Not Track (“DNT”). Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.

Links to Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third-party’s site. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services. So, we strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

Children’s Privacy

Only persons aged 13 or older have permission to access our Service. Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13 (“Children”).

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13.

If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from a children under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

To protect persons aged between 13 and 18 (“Minors”), we may put special safeguards in place, recognizing this may provide Minors with a more limited experience on our Service.
