Your privacy is critically important to us. At First Lady Shears (FLS) we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we believe it to be absolutely necessary – as an example, we never ask questions such as “gender” or “income level”.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except within the confines of the law.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers
- In our social networking initiatives, we aim to give you the control of what may be visible to the public, what might be seen by search engines, any information that you wish to keep private, or to request permanent deletion.
