Information Collection and Use
U.S. Flag Store is the sole owner of the information collected on www.USFlagStore.com. U.S. Flag Store collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
During registration a user is required to provide contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact the user about goods and services on our site for which he/she has expressed interest.
We request information from the user on our order form. A user must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. This site also uses Google Analytics Smart Lists features to remarket to users who are most likely interested in our products. Users can opt out of Google Analytics advertising features. To learn more visit Google Ads Settings. Note that this may impact shopping experiences throughout the web.
Like most standard website servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
U.S. Flag Store offers announcements, promotions, coupons, discounts, and more via e-mail newsletter. Subscribers who no longer wish to receive newsletter e-mails may remove themselves from the mailing list via the unsubscribe link in the footer of any newsletter email.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature (Users may opt-out of promotional communications).
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the users wishes.
Legal Disclaimer Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. At U.S. Flag Store we take credit card security very seriously. U.S. Flag Store does not store customer credit card information. Should you choose to utilize the "Save My Card" feature at checkout, we retain only a secure token which links to your payment profile securely stored by our credit card payment processor.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally identifiable information. This can usually be done via the My Account dashboard, or by emailing our Customer Support via our web contact form. Users may also contact us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.

Notification of Changes
If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner.
