Links to Other Websites
Information from Outside Parties
Examples of information we may receive from other sources include account information; purchase or redemption information; page-view information from some merchants with which we operate co-branded businesses; and information from search results and links, including paid listings (such as Sponsored Links from Google). Content and information that you submit through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or other online platforms may appear on our Website or other platforms. We are not responsible for the dissemination of content or information from, or the privacy practices of, any such platform.
The Website may be accessed by users located outside the United States, where legally permitted. If you choose to use the Website from outside the United States where the laws governing data collection and use may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your personal information outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing, and that by providing your personal information on or through the Website that you hereby consent to such transfer.
Before entering certain portions of the site, Users may be required to authenticate their identity. When a User enters sensitive information on the Website, we encrypt that information using encryption techniques such as secure socket layer technology (SSL). To learn more about SSL, follow this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer. Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the Internet or by other means, and no system for storage of data, is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for hackers or other third parties not under the control of Flex to intercept or access private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your personal information, Flex cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or otherwise provide to us. Any transmission or other provision of information is done at your own risk.
In the event that the Website undergoes a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically through the contact information you provide so that you can take appropriate steps to protect yourself from future harm. Additionally, we may also post a notice on or through the Website in such an event. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
While it is difficult to guarantee that your personal information is secure, there are steps to take which can minimize such risk. For instance, passwords containing uppercase and lowercase letters, as well as numbers and symbols are viewed as harder to be “hacked”. Similarly, the risk to your computer from external attacks by malicious users can be reduced through usage of an active firewall. As a further means of protection, please logout anytime you are finished with a session.
You should also be aware of fraudulent attempts to gain access to your account information, such as “phishing.” Phishing refers to an email that attempts to fraudulently acquire personal information from you, such as your username, password and/or financial information. These emails appear to be from legitimate companies or individuals, but are not. Flex will never send you an email asking for your password or login information. In general, you can protect yourself against phishing by providing personal or login information only on the Website from which the email is purportedly sent.
Information we collect and use may be transferred, stored and accessed from various locations to support our operations. We retain information for as long as it is needed or useful to provide and improve our products and services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates. Currently, there is no standard that governs what, if any thing, websites should do when they receive these signals. Flex currently does not take action in response to these signals.
