Use and Disclosure of Your Information
At The Flower Box, we understand that your inbox is already cluttered with too much spam.

We will always give you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving any future marketing emails or text messages.
If you opt-in to receive information from us, we may use your purchase history, contact information, or other information requested at registration to customize the information provided and improve the content of the emails you receive.
