Option to Opt-Out from Marketing Communications
- Information You Provide to Us. We only collect certain information from you when you provide it to us, such as when you: (1) register/create an account; (2) purchase one of our products or services or redeem FLX Membership Points ; (3) complete a survey or product review; (4) participate in one of our promotions, contests, or sweepstakes; (5) sign up for a Membership Program, newsletter or other communication; or (6) contact us. The information we collect from you may include your name, date of birth, gender, mailing address or zip code, daytime telephone number, cell phone number, e-mail address, account user-name and password, and payment information.

- Registration/Create an Account. We encourage you to register/create an account when shopping on our Site or App; however, registration is not required. Our Registration Form may require users to provide contact information (such as name, /date of birth, zip code, mailing address, daytime telephone number, cell phone number, e-mail address, and password). You must be 13 years of age or older to register. Registration helps us to provide you with a quick and simple checkout experience. The customer contact information you provide will be used to contact you concerning the status of an order, answer your questions and, unless you choose to opt-out, to send you communications about upcoming sales, contests, promotions and product information. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your registration information and password. You are responsible for all use of the Site or App under your registered account. If you would like, you can also fill out a customer profile.

These technologies, such as cookies, also allow us to keep track of your order as you shop on our Site or App, to make our Site better, to enable our Services to function, to maintain your preferences and settings, to provide enhanced features, to combat fraud, to recognize registered users when they visit, and to provide registered users with information and advertising that is more relevant to them.
- Tracking Options and California Do Not Track. You may adjust your browser settings to limit certain tracking or to decline cookies, but by doing so, you may not be able to use certain features on the Services or take full advantage of our offerings. Even without a cookie, you can still take advantage of most of the features of our Site, including making a purchase, but we will not be able to recognize you as a registered user unless you log in. We respond to Do Not Track setting by suppressing certain targeting cookies for users with a California IP address. Otherwise, our system may not respond to your Do Not Track request or browser header. We may use certain service providers to provide you with more relevant online advertising based on your activities on our Site and third-party sites. To learn more about, or to opt-out of, service provider use of this information, please click here. We may also use technologies, such as our own cookies, to provide you with online advertising tailored to your interests.

For certain service providers, such as social media platforms, and on your mobile device, you can adjust your privacy and advertising settings to limit your tracking for advertising or to control whether you receive more relevant advertising. To learn more about certain mobile and browser privacy and advertising controls see “Use and Management of Cookies” section below.

We may obtain information about you from other sources, including social networks, that you use to connect with us, advertising networks, internet service providers, data analytics providers, government entities, operating systems and platforms and data brokers. This information includes, for example, your name, username, demographic information, updated address or contact information, interests, and publicly observed data, such as from social media and online activity.
- Combination of Information. We may also combine the information we receive from and about you, including the information you provide to us on the Services or through the Membership Program, information we receive from third parties, the information we automatically collect (as explained above), and information provided or collected offline when you shop in our Stores.

As with any business, as our business develops, we may sell or buy online stores or other assets. In such transactions, information about customers often is among the transferred assets. Accordingly, in the unlikely event that a third party acquires our company or substantially all of our assets, such information may be one of the transferred assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personal information provided through the Services in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
We may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about Site users with third parties. Additional information on our data disclosure practices can be found in the Your California Rights Section of this Privacy Statement.
If we have actual knowledge that you are between the ages of 13 and 16, we will comply with laws that restrict us from automatically using cookies that send personal information to third parties for use by such parties for their commercial purposes unless you authorize us to do so.
You can manage your cookies related to Interest Based Advertising through various tools, including:
1. Adjusting your privacy and advertising settings on your mobile device (where your mobile device permits this) to control whether you receive interest-based targeted advertising. Learn more at https://www.networkadvertising.org/mobile-choices.
2. Managing the cookies on your browser using the cookie preference tool (where available). Most browsers will allow you to choose the level of privacy settings you want. You can block all cookies or accept all cookies or pick a setting somewhere in between. Deleting cookies means that any preference settings you have made on a website will be lost. If you have set your preferences to opt out of cookies, this setting will be lost too, as that information is stored in a cookie. Blocking all cookies means functionality on our websites may be lost. We do not recommend turning all cookies off when using our websites. We also use a browser-based cookie to remember your cookie preferences. If you use a different device, computer profile or browser you will have to tell us your preferences again. If you want to reduce your cookie settings at any time – for example, if you accept all cookies, but later decide you don’t want a certain type of cookie – you’ll need to use your browser settings to remove any third party cookies dropped on your previous visit. Find out more below about how to manage your cookies using the most popular browsers.

Changes To Our Privacy Statement
We reserve the right, at any time and in our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, remove, or otherwise revise portions of this Privacy Statement. When we update our Privacy Statement, we will take appropriate measures to inform you, consistent with the significance of the changes we make, and in accordance with applicable law. Except where prohibited by law, your continued use of the Site after we post changes to this Privacy Statement means you accept these changes.
