The following describes how we collect, use and disclose the personal information of those individuals who visit our website.
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third parties to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences. Consequently, collected information is tied to a user's personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user's visit to our Web site, and to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them. We do not share your profile with other third parties. Please ensure that the personal details you provide on registration are correct and complete and let us know immediately of any changes.
When registering you will be asked to create a password. Please keep this confidential and do not disclose or share it with anyone. You are responsible for all orders submitted under your password. If you suspect someone has used your password please contact us.
We request information from the user on order forms. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill a customer's order. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user. All online purchase transactions are done on a secure server hosted off-site.
Bouquet in a Card uses state of the art security technology to protect our customers when shopping online with the Website. Credit card information is encrypted so that transactions are private and protected as information is exchanged over the Internet. All orders must be placed through browsers that accept Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
The Website operates the highest standard of encryption available for online trading certified by DigiCert®. All Bouquet in a Card orders are processed with a secure connection with PayPal® so it is virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us. We do not store your payment details.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. This data is stored on your hard drive and is returned to our server every time you access certain pages on the Website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We use three types of cookies on the Website:
- Session ID cookie – once a user closes the browser, the cookie simply terminates;
- Persistent cookie – a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. These are used to remember login details, address details and basket details. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions; and
- Third party cookies – these are used by our partners to measure site visitors, such as Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a tool that allows us to track visitors and how our site is used. All personal information collected is anonymous so neither Google nor Bouquet in a Card can use your details for any marketing purposes. We use this for seeing which products and pages are most popular. In addition, from time to time we send out marketing emails to users who have opted in to our mailing list. These emails have cookies that allow us to track how many visitors clicked on a link in the email and how much revenue each email generates.
f) Log Files
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
2. Children's Privacy
The Website is directed toward and designed for use by persons aged 16 or older. Bouquet in a Card will not approve applications of, or establish or maintain accounts or memberships for, any child whom Bouquet in a Card knows to be under the age of 16. Bouquet in a Card does not solicit or knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16. If Bouquet in a Card nevertheless discovers that it has received personally identifiable information from an individual who indicates that he or she is, or whom Bouquet in a Card otherwise has reason to believe is, under the age of 16, Bouquet in a Card will delete such information from its systems. Additionally, a child's parent or legal guardian may request that the child's information be corrected or deleted from Bouquet in a Card’s files by contacting us.
3. Communications from the Site
a) Special Offers and Updates
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username, and those who place an order will be sent order notifications. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, and special deals. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, an 'opt out' or 'remove from list' feature is provided with all these communications. Users may also contact us to opt out.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users’ privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications.
c) Service Announcements
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
d) Customer Service
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the users' wishes.
e) Information Sharing
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site. Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
We may from time to time make our mailing list available to carefully selected companies which may be of interest to you. If you would prefer not to receive such mailings please contact us, confirming that you wish to be removed from this service. For orders placed by telephone, if you do not wish your details to be passed on to other reputable companies for marketing purposes please state this to your customer service representative.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Website.
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as postal code).
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just 'surfing'. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to user information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

5. Delivery in Canada
Bouquet in a Card uses Canada Post - Xpresspost Delivery Services.
Deliveries are guaranteed within 1 or 2 days depending on the recipient address and location.

Please make sure that the recipient will be at home when you send them their gift. Bouquet in a Card will ensure that all Bouquet in a Card products arrive in excellent condition on the date of delivery specified by the customer; however, Bouquet in a Card will not be held responsible for the whereabouts of recipients at time of delivery.
