Welcome to Flipteria.lk! Sri Lanka’s exclusive and unique online shopping website. We value your privacy and are committed to safeguarding your personal information. Please read this Privacy Policy for more information.

This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information (under certain circumstances). This Privacy Policy also highlights the safeguards we've put in place to protect your personal data. Finally, this Privacy Policy describes your options for personal information collection, use, and dissemination. You accept the practices outlined in this Policy by visiting the Site directly or through another site.

Data protection is a matter of trust, and we value your privacy. As a result, we will only use your name and other personally identifiable information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy. We will only gather information if it is necessary for us to do so, and only if it is related to our business relationships with you.

We will only store your data for as long as we are obliged by law or as long as it is relevant to the purposes for which it was obtained.

You can browse the Site without providing any personal information. You remain anonymous during your visit to the Site, and we will never be able to identify you unless you have an account on the Site and log in using your user name and password.

Information we gather

If you want to order a product from us on the Site, we may gather several pieces of information from you.

We collect, store, and handle your personal information in order to complete your purchase on the Site and any subsequent claims, as well as to provide you with our services. Your title, name, gender, date of birth, email address, postal address, delivery address (if different), telephone number, mobile number, fax number, payment details, credit card details, or bank account data are all examples of personal information that we may collect.

We'll use the information you give us to process your orders and provide you with the services and information available on our website that you've requested. Furthermore, we will use the information you submit to run your account with us, to verify and complete financial transactions related to payments you make, and to communicate with you. Improve the appearance and/or content of our website's pages and customize them for users; audit the downloading of data from our website; determine who is visiting our website; conduct demographic studies on our users; send you information we think you'll find useful or that you've requested from us, such as product information and services. If you have stated that you do not object to being contacted for these purposes, we will contact you. We may contact you by email with information about other products and services if you give us your permission. You can opt out at any time if you do not want to receive marketing communications from us.

In order to provide the goods to you, we may share your name and address with a third party (for example to our courier or supplier). You must only submit to us truthful and non-misleading Site information, and you must keep it up to date and notify us of any changes.

Your actual order information may be saved with us; however, they cannot be retrieved directly by us due to security concerns. You can, however, retrieve this information by login into your Site account. You can manage your address details, bank details (for refund purposes), and any newsletter subscriptions you may have subscribed to by viewing the details of your orders that have been completed, those that are open, and those that are about to be delivered. You agree to keep the personal access data private and not to share it with unauthorized third parties. We cannot be held liable for password usage unless the misuse is our fault.

Uses of your Personal Information in Other Ways.

We may use your personal information for market research and opinion polls. Your information will be kept private and will only be used for statistical purposes. You have the option to opt out at any time. Any responses you provide to surveys or opinion polls that we may conduct will not be shared with third parties. If you want to participate in competitions, you must give out your email address. We keep your survey responses separate from your email address.

We may also send you information about us, the Site, our other websites, our products, sales promotions, newsletters, and anything else related to our group of companies or business partners. Please click the 'unsubscribe' link in any email we send you if you do not want to receive any of the additional information described in this paragraph (or any part of it). We will stop sending you information as requested within 7 working days of receiving your instruction (days that are neither I a Sunday nor (ii) a public holiday anywhere in Sri Lanka). We will contact you for clarification if your instructions are unclear.

We may also anonymize data about Site users in general and use it for a variety of purposes, such as determining the users' general location and usage of certain aspects of the Site or a link contained in an email sent to those who have signed up to receive them, and supplying that anonymized data to third parties such as publishers. That anonymized data, on the other hand, will not be able to identify you individually.

Competitions

 We utilize the data to contact winners and publicize our offers for any competition. Where applicable, you can find more information in the competition's participation terms.

Links and Third Parties

Your information may be shared with other companies in our group. We may also share your information with our agents and subcontractors to assist us with any of the data purposes described in our Privacy Policy. We may, for example, utilize third parties to assist us in delivering items to you, collecting payments from you, analyzing data, and providing marketing or customer service assistance.

For the sake of fraud prevention and credit risk reduction, we may share information with third parties. If we sell our company or a portion of it, we may transfer our databases holding your personal information. We will NOT sell or disclose your personal data to third parties without your explicit consent, unless it is necessary for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy or we are forced to do so by law. The Site may contain third-party advertising, as well as connections to other websites or frames of other websites. Please keep in mind that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those third parties or other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those third parties or other sites, nor for any third party to whom we transfer your data in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
