We collect information such as name, phone number, mailing address, email address, login credentials (e.g., ID), order information, and payment information from Visitors who access data (e.g., product catalogs, line cards, etc.) and/or place orders via the Website (“Customers”). We also collect information contained on any Content voluntarily uploaded by Customers.

The data which FloWorks compiles from responses received from Visitors to the Website may also be shared with third parties for the same purposes, but the information shared includes no personal identifiable data, so your name and personal information is not provided to such merchants. Visitors that provide or request information via the Website are deemed to agree to this use of data and to consent to receiving a response from FloWorks to the email address or other contact information provided to FloWorks. Note that requesting information, such as using the “Contact” or “Investor Relations” page of the Website, will not confer any right to receive a response. Any requests for information may be responded to entirely in the discretion of FloWorks and there is no obligation on the part of FloWorks to respond or to provide any information.
