Use of your Personal Information
Mears Floral Products collects and uses your personal information to operate the Mears Floral Products website and deliver the services you have requested. Mears Floral Products also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Mears Floral Products and its affiliates. Mears Floral Products may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Mears Floral Products does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Mears Floral Products may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Mears Floral Products may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Mears Floral Products, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Mears Floral Products does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Mears Floral Products keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within Mears Floral Products, in order to determine what Mears Floral Products services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Mears Floral Products to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Mears Floral Products websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only 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 served on Mears Floral Products or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Mears Floral Products; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Mears Floral Products, or the public.

What about Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as personalization and storage of information you already gave us between visits. This interim storage will relieve you from re-entering personal data and preferences in future visits.
The “HELP” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of Mears Floral Products ordering features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Security of your Personal Information
How secure is information about me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which encrypts information you input.
How Does Encryption Work?
Encryption is based on a key that has two different parts. The public part and the private part. The public part of the key is distributed to those you want to communicate with. The private part is for the recipient’s use only.
Mears Floral Products secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Mears Floral Products secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
When you send personal information to Mears Floral Products, you use Dreisbach Wholesale Florist’s public key to encrypt your personal information. That means, if at any point during the transmission your information is intercepted, it is scrambled and very difficult to decrypt. Once Mears Floral Products receives your encrypted personal information, we use the private part of our key to decode it.
If at any point in the future we start accepting online credit card purchasing we will reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
How does Mears Floral Products use or share the information we collect?
Mears Floral Products is not in the business of selling consumer information to others. We share and use the information we collect only in order to serve you better as described below:
Email communications: we use email to communicate with you in a quicker and more efficient way, advising you about special discounts available, new products, responding to your questions or to confirm your orders or shipments to you. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please let us know by sending us a message via email or postal mail.
Phone Communications: We may use the phone to communicate with you, advising you about special discounts available, verifying incomplete orders or responding to your questions, in compliance with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. We may contact you by phone if you have previously contacted us to request information about our products and special offers, or if you unsuccessfully attempted to place an order on our website. If you do not want to receive phone calls from us, please let us know by sending us a message via email or postal mail.
