Privacy Policy

Effective February 18, 2020

This website is operated and owned by Florida Bulk Sales on behalf of itself and certain affiliates (collectively, “Florida Bulk”, “we”, or “our”). Florida Bulk respects the data privacy of our customers and other visitors to our website, and the purpose of this Policy is to inform you about our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data and other information when you use the site and the choices you have associated with that data.

This Policy applies only to the website and online services provided by Florida Bulk. This Policy does not cover any interaction you may have with Florida Bulk by telephone, postal mail, or other offline communications.

COLLECTION AND STORAGE

We do not collect personal information from visitors unless the information is provided voluntarily and knowingly. When you complete a contact or inquiry form on our website, you may be asked for some personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address and phone number. From time to time, we may also collect additional information as needed for us to communicate with you, process your orders, and to provide services to you. We do not use your email address for purposes other than responding to the message you sent, to contact you regarding your transaction and product, or to send additional communication about our products and services. Collected data is securely stored with encryption, provided that no method of transmission or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, and although we use commercially acceptable means to protect such data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We or third-party vendors may use tools such as Google Analytics, first-party cookies, or other third-party identifiers to compile data regarding user activity with respect to this website. A cookie is a piece of information that is sent to your web browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each time you return to our website, we may be able to identify you as a previous visitor or registered customer. Cookies also enable us to measure our site traffic, including the number of repeat versus new visitors, the time users spend online, and their navigation behavior.

USE OF INFORMATION; DISCLOSURE

Personally identifiable information such as name, address, phone number and email information are stored in a secure database. This and other information we collect is used to provide the service or product you request; to enable billing and shipping; to qualify you for trade credit; to provide you with information about related or relevant products and services; for website and systems administration, improvement, and trouble-shooting; and for other legitimate business purposes.

We may share your information within Florida Bulk and among its subsidiaries and affiliates.  We may also share your information with website developers or companies that fulfill and ship orders or other third parties that assist with processing your orders or proving services to you.

Florida Bulk may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process; (b) protect and defend its rights or property; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect personal safety.

Transfer of Data

Your information, including personal data, 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 from those of your jurisdiction.  If you are located outside United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer data, including personal data, to the United States for processing.  Your deemed consent to this Privacy Policy represented by your submission of such information constitutes your agreement to that transfer. Florida Bulk will take reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your personal data takes place unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

THIRD-PARTY LINKS

Our website may link to third-party websites. When you follow a link to another website, you leave our site and your online interactions are no longer protected by this Privacy Policy. Florida Bulk is not responsible for, and does not endorse the content or the privacy or security practices of websites to which our site links. You should review the privacy policies of any such third-party websites for their policies and practices regarding the collection and use of your information because their policies may differ from ours. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of third parties.

YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS UNDER THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Florida Bulk’s legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in this Privacy Policy depends on the data we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.

Florida Bulk will take reasonable steps to allow you to correct, amend, delete or limit the use of your personal data. If you wish to be informed about what personal data we hold about you or if you want it to be removed from our systems, please contact us.

In certain circumstances, residents of the EFA verified as such have the following data protection rights under the GDPR: to request access, update, or deletion of personal data; to have such information corrected if inaccurate or incomplete; to object to or request that we restrict our processing of such information; to be provided with a copy of such information in a structured, machine-readable, and commonly used format; to withdraw your consent if relied upon to process such information; and to complain to a Data Protection Authority about our collection and use of your personal data.
