Florida Flamingles Privacy Policy

Effective date: November 15, 2023


Florida Flamingles, a Florida State 501 (c7) Corporation (“Florida Flamingles,” “Flamingles,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) owns and operates this website (this “Site”). This Online Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) describes our commitment to privacy and reflects our importance on earning and keeping your trust.


Scope of This Policy


Florida Flamingles collects certain information about or related to you through this Site. Some of the information Florida Flamingles collects may be “personal information”—information that identifies you personally, alone or in combination with other information available to us. Additional information may be non-personally identifiable, such as your IP address.


Florida Flamingles has provided this Policy so that you will know what information Florida Flamingles collects about or related to you through this Site, how Florida Flamingles uses this information, the types of third parties with whom Florida Flamingles may share this information, and some of the choices that are available to you.


This Policy may be supplemented or amended occasionally by additional privacy notices (“Privacy Notices”) provided when we collect your information. For example, certain pages of this Site may contain Privacy Notices providing more details about the information we collect on those particular pages, why we need that information, and your choices about how we use that information. In other cases, specific Privacy Notices may be required to comply with the privacy laws of one of the countries, provinces, or states in which we do business.


Your Consent


Using this Site, you consent to the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of your information as described in this Policy (and any Privacy Notices that apply to you). If you do not consent to the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of your information as described in this Policy (and any Privacy Notices that apply to you), you may not use this Site. If you have questions about this Policy or any Privacy Notice, please get in touch with us via e-mail at


Our Terms of Use


This Policy is part of the Terms of Use that govern your use of this Site. A link to our Terms of Use is provided at the bottom of each site page.


Your Choices


In General. We respect your right to choose how we collect, use, and disclose your information. For example, we strive to give you choices about the email communications you receive from us and our business partners. We typically ask you to indicate such choices at the time and on the page where you provide your information. In addition, this Policy describes some of your options, such as opting out of receiving “cookies.”

Do Not Track Mechanisms. Florida law, where applicable, requires this Policy to address how we respond to any “Do-Not-Track (‘DNT’) signal” delivered by your browser. Because of the changing state of technology and indecision within the industry regarding the meaning of DNT signals, we currently do not make any guarantee that we will honor DNT signals.

Previously Expressed Preferences. You may change previously expressed preferences regarding how we use your information. For example, you can opt out of promotional emails we send you by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each communication. You may be able to change other preferences through the functionality provided on this site. Otherwise, you can contact us at


This Policy May Change


Florida Flamingles reserves the right to update or modify this Policy and any Privacy Notice, at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version of the Policy or Privacy Notice on this Site. These changes will only apply to the information we collect after we have posted the revised Policy or Privacy Notice on this Site.

Your use of this Site following any such change constitutes your agreement that all information collected from or about you after the revised Policy is posted will be subject to the terms of the revised Policy. You may access the current version of this Policy at any time by clicking on the link marked “Privacy” at the bottom of each page of the public areas of this Site.


Information We Collect


Information You Manually Provide. Florida Flamingles collects the information you manually provide (using your keyboard, mouse, or touchpad) when you use this Site. For example, we collect the information you provide when you complete a profile or communicate with us through the Site, including personal information such as your name, contact information, User-Generated Content (as defined below), and information about your recreational vehicle.

Information From Third-Party Social Media Platforms. You may be able to register with, log on to, or enhance your profile on this Site by choosing to automatically populate the requested data fields with information you previously provided to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook, Twitter, or X). By doing this, you are asking the third-party platform to send us information, including personal information, from your profile on that platform. We treat that information as any other information you give us when registering, logging on, or enhancing your profile.

Information from your browser or device. Florida Flamingles automatically collects the data sent to us by your web browser or mobile device. This information typically includes your IP address, the name of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. The information we receive may depend on your browser or device settings.

The information we receive from your web browser and device is not, in and of itself, personally identifiable. Generally, we use this information in the aggregate to help us improve this Site and make it more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. However, we may combine it with other information to identify you, or we may combine it with information that does identify you. We may also review our server logs for security purposes—for example, to detect intrusions into our network—and we might share our server logs containing visitors’ IP addresses with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify you.

Your Location. Using GPS technology, and only with your opt-in consent, we may collect precise, real-time location information from your mobile device and use that information to deliver tailored content through this Site. We may also share information about your location with your friends and other contacts to the extent you interact with them using the social networking tools available on this Site.

Your mobile device may allow you to adjust your settings so that location information is unavailable on any mobile website or application. If you have questions about the security and privacy settings of your mobile or tablet device, please refer to instructions from your mobile service provider or the manufacturer of your device.

The location information we receive from your mobile device is not personally identifiable, but we may link it to information that identifies you.

Information Collected by Cookies and Other Technologies. We use “cookies” and other technologies to collect data and support certain features of this Site. A cookie is a small file assigned to your Internet browser that can collect and store data. Generally, we may use cookies and other technologies to:

To provide you with effective customer service; • to provide you with a personalized experience when you use this Site; 
to contact you with information and notices related to your use of this Site; 
To contact you with special offers and other information we believe will be of interest to you (by any privacy preferences you have expressed to us);

How We Share Your Information


With Third–Party Vendors. Florida Flamingles may share information collected through this Site with third-party vendors who act for us or on our behalf by providing services to Florida Flamingles. For example, we may use third-party vendors to design and operate this Site, conduct surveys, and help us with our promotional efforts. These third-party vendors may need information about you to perform their functions. These third-party vendors are not authorized to use the personal information we share with them or that they collect on our behalf for any other purpose other than to perform their functions on behalf of Florida Flamingles. In addition, they are required to protect personal information appropriately and comply with applicable privacy laws.


With Other Users of this Site. You can submit User-Generated Content on or through this Site. In this Policy, “User-Generated Content” or “UGC” refers to content that you post using the social networking tools we make available to you and that does not constitute “Feedback” (as that term is defined in our Terms of Use). Any personal information in UGC can be read, collected, or used by others. In addition, we may use the UGC you submit for advertising campaigns and other promotions. We may or may not use your name in connection with such use, and by raising the UGC, you consent to our use of the content for such purposes as advertising campaigns and other promotions. Therefore, you should not expect privacy concerning the UGC you submit on or through this Site.


With Third-Party Social Media Platforms. We may provide functionality on this Site that allows you to automatically

post information about the actions you take on this Site to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook, Twitter, or X). If you take advantage of this functionality, people with access to your profile on the third-party platform may be able to see your actions—for example, the items you have purchased. Thus, you should have no expectation of privacy in those actions. Further, if you link your profile on this Site with an account on a third-party social media platform, we may share the information in your profile with that third-party platform.


With Carefully Selected Business Partners. From time to time, and with your consent, we may share your information with selected third parties for their marketing purposes. For example, we may partner with third parties to sponsor contests or other promotions, and we may share with these third parties the information you submit to us to participate in the contest or take advantage of the promotion. Before doing so, however, we will offer you the opportunity to “opt-in.”


In aggregate or de-identified form. We use information collected through this Site to create a compiled, aggregate view of usage patterns. We may share aggregate data with third parties so they can better understand our user base. We may also communicate with third parties information about how particular individuals use this Site, but only on a de-identified basis (“Individualized Data”). Individualized Data is not personally identifiable, but it does reflect the usage patterns of a particular Site user, as opposed to Site users collectively. We may provide basic demographic information (gender and age) in conjunction with providing Individualized Data. Third parties typically use this information for analytical purposes and to market their products and services. It is possible that third parties will attempt to “re-identify” de-identified data, and you should know that this is possible using external points of reference.


As Part of a Business Transfer. Your information may be transferred to a successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of this Site to another organization or if we merge with or are acquired by another organization. If such a transfer occurs, the successor organization’s use of your information will still be subject to this Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed.


To Comply with Laws and Protect Our Rights and the Rights of Others. We may disclose your information when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law, a court order, or a subpoena. We may also disclose your information to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to protect the security of this Site; to enforce or apply our online Terms of Use or other agreements; or to protect our rights or property or the rights, property or safety of our users or others.


As Described in a Privacy Notice or click-through agreement. We reserve the right to disclose your information as described in any Privacy Notice posted on a page of this Site where you provide that information. By providing your information on that page, you will consent to disclosing your information as described in that privacy notice. We also reserve the right to disclose your information as described in any click-through agreement to which you have agreed.


How We Protect Your Information

Florida Flamingles takes reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the information we collect. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your data against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases. We will not be responsible for security breaches beyond our reasonable control.

You must be at least 18 years old to have our permission to use this Site. We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information about visitors under 18. If you are under 18, you can use this service only with your parent’s or guardian’s permission.
