The Way We Use Information

ToyFlow does not sell, rent, or provide your "Personal Information" to third parties, except as described below. Personal Information is generally kept for ToyFlow business, which is primarily used to assist you in your current or future purchases or in analyzing sales trends.

We use the Personal Information that you provide about yourself when placing an order primarily to complete that order. Personal Information from the order form (such as email addresses) is used to send orders and may be used for promotional purposes originating from some of our partners for our customers (for example, promotional email's). Personal Information is also used to get in touch with the customer when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings by following the directions in those mailings.

ToyFlow may use online surveys that ask visitors for Personal Information, which usually includes contact information (typically the customer's email address) and demographic information (like their postal or zip code, age, or income level). We use Personal Information gathered from our surveys to send the user promotional material from ToyFlow.  ToyFlow may run contests on our site in which we ask visitors for selected Personal Information such as contact information (typically the customer's email address) and demographic information (like their zip code, age, or income level). We use Personal Information gathered from our contests to send users promotional material from ToyFlow. The customer's Personal Information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary (i.e. when someone wins a contest). Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our product selection, and to choose content that we think they might be interested in.

ToyFlow shares Personal Information with third parties in certain limited circumstances. First, ToyFlow may share Personal Information with a third party but only with your consent.
