If you leave a comment on our website, you may opt in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again if you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Website Function Cookies
Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of ours and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.

Third party functions
We, along with third-party vendors including Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
Opting out: Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the “Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out” page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out browser add-on.
Who we share your data with:
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal data unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
How long we retain your data:
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data:
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data:
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data:
Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible. We use regular malware scanning to ensure your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit card information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We implement a variety of security measures when a user submits or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. It’s also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking
What data breach procedures we have in place:
In order to be in line with fair information practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
- Notify you via email within 3 business days
- Notify the users via in-site notification within 1 business day
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act):
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use FL Rising Alerts, and we do not intentionally collect or maintain Personal Information from those who are under 13 years old. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. Thus, if we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 13, we will take steps to remove that user’s Personal Information from our databases. We recommend that children between the ages of 13 and 18 obtain their parent’s permission before submitting information over the internet. By using FL Rising Alerts, you are representing that you are at least 18 years old, or that you are at least 13 years old and have your parents’ permission to use FL Rising Alerts.
Collection and Use of Information
In general, we collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily through FL Rising Alerts. We also collect information that you submit in the process of creating or editing your account and user profile on FL Rising Alerts. For example, our registration and login process requires you to provide us with your name, valid email address and password of your choice. When you personalize your profile and use the features of FL Rising Alerts, we will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your use of FL Rising Alerts, such as your year of birth, gender and other demographic information. We collect information in the form of the content that you submit during your use of FL Rising Alerts, such as photos, comments, ratings and other information you choose to submit. We may also collect information about you and your friends, from any social network you may have connected from, in order to provide you with a more personalized experience. For instance, we may collect your user ID or profile information that you have permitted to be displayed through FL Rising Alerts in order to display you as a friend or in association with your profile and collections. When you order our products or services, you will need to submit your credit card or other payment information so that our service providers can process your payment for those products and services. If you choose to sign up to receive information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we will collect your email address and all related information.

Information Collected Via Technology
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. For example, we, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access FL Rising Alerts to assist with ad targeting.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with FL Rising Alerts. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our services offered through FL Rising Alerts, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of FL Rising Alerts may not work properly, and you will not be able to receive our services.
Use and Disclosure of Information
In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used by us to provide you access to FL Rising Alerts, to improve FL Rising Alerts, to better tailor the features, performance, and support of FL Rising Alerts and to offer you additional information, opportunities, promotions and functionality from us, our partners or our advertisers at your request.
