COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION

Flywheel is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site.  We collect information from our Users in a number of different ways, as detailed below.  The information we collect depends on what you do when you visit our Site.  Please note that we do not collect personally-identifying information about you, including your name, email address, telephone number or postal address, when you visit our Site, unless you choose to provide such information to us by subscribing to our alert, newsletter or related services, and/or contacting us regarding the Site or our services.  If at any time you do provide us with such information, we will collect it.

Voluntary Submissions

Flywheel may collect personally identifiable information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users sign up to be a volunteer on the Site, subscribe to a newsletter, fill out a contact form, or make a donation. These are voluntary submissions to stay connected to Flywheel and support Flywheel initiatives. 

Log Files and Analytical Information

For each visitor to our Site, we may automatically gather certain information and store it in log files.  This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.  We may collect and store this information on an individual basis and in aggregate, or combined, form.  We may also collect both user-specific and aggregate information on what pages visitors access or visit.  We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  We also use this information to improve the content of our web pages, and to customize the content and layout of our pages.  All of this is done with the intention of making our Site more useful to visitors.  We do not correlate this information with data about individual users.

We may use one or more third-party tracking services to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our Site in the aggregate.  These third-party services may use JavaScript, pixels, transparent GIF files, and other means to enable us to learn which advertisements bring users to our Site.  Any information we track in this manner is anonymous, limited to usage and volume statistics, and is used to provide insight into the effectiveness of our online marketing initiatives and strategies. 

We do not divulge any information about an individual user to a third party unless it is in connection with Flywheel services.

As a general rule, Flywheel will not disclose any of your information except to our affiliated companies and except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or under the circumstances described below.   

We do not rent or sell email addresses to third parties, or otherwise share any personally-identifying information we collect, with any third parties (other than our affiliated entities) except as set forth below.

If we do share personally-identifying information with an entity working on our behalf, we will employ commercially-appropriate procedures to help ensure that the disclosed information is used only for authorized purposes by authorized persons, and that safeguards are in place to help maintain the security, integrity and privacy of the information. 

You may opt out of having your information shared with entities working on our behalf, as discussed below.  However, should you do so, you should be aware that you may not be able to utilize the full functionality of the Site.

SECURITY

The security of your personal information is important to us.  We implement commercially reasonable standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it, and to guard that information against loss, misuse or alteration.  When you enter sensitive and/or personally-identifying information on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

Please note, however, that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.  Therefore, while we use commercially-reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
