Your privacy on the internet is important to us at HermanHeylFlorist.com.  Our online privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") describes the types of information we gather online and how we use it.  Please read this information carefully.  If the online information practices of HermanHeylFlorist.com change, we will let you know by posting the Privacy Policy adjustments on our Web site.

HermanHeylFlorist.com collects two types of information about users: "Personal Information" (such as name, email address, mailing address and phone and credit card numbers) and "Aggregate Information" (such as information about how many users log on to our sites on a daily basis).

Personal Information Collected Online by HermanHeylFlorist.com
Personal Information is collected online when users voluntarily register with HermanHeylFlorist.com to purchase items, receive electronic newsletters, use community and communication services, answer surveys and enter contests and other promotional opportunities provided on HermanHeylFlorist.com.  We also maintain a record of your product interests and purchases online.

Aggregate Information Collected Online by HermanHeylFlorist.com
Aggregate Information is nonpersonally identifiable/anonymous information about you, such as age, gender, types of products purchased, pages you access most frequently or search terms you enter.  Aggregate Information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information.  For example, the number of people who shopped at HermanHeylFlorist.com who are 25 years of age is Aggregate Information that does not personally identify a specific user.  Tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of collecting Aggregate Information about your activities online and information volunteered by you.  An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web.  The computers, which deliver the Web pages to you, automatically identify your computer by its IP address.  When you request a page from our site, our servers log your IP address.

Sharing Information Collected Online
HermanHeylFlorist.com does not share, sell or trade with third parties your Personal Information gathered online, such as email addresses, Personal Information collected as part of an online survey or other specific details about you.  We do not contribute to or participate in cooperative databases, which give other companies access to such Personal Information.  For privacy purposes, all information relating to our customers is stored on a highly secure server, and all credit card information is stored in an encrypted format.

HermanHeylFlorist.com may divulge Personal Information if such information is required for HermanHeylFlorist.com to comply with any valid legal process, such as a subpoena, search warrant, statute or court order, or if HermanHeylFlorist.com believes that membership has been used to commit unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health or safety of another user or of the general public.  In addition, HermanHeylFlorist.com receives personal usage and demographic information from its affiliates and from third parties and uses this information to improve our products and services.

HermanHeylFlorist.com may share Aggregate Information with affiliates and consultants for any internal business purposes only.

Security and SSL
Protecting your order information is a priority for us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https." Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won't be able to connect to the server and therefore won't be able to place an order through a secure connection. If you cannot access the secure server for any reason, please print our shopping page and place your order by phone at 1-800-247-6100.
