Accessibility of Your Information – How You Control It
Our services, and in particular the Online Showroom feature of our inFlow Cloud™ Services, are designed so that users publish their product information online for their customers or public to see. Our services do not filter or monitor in respect of this.
You have control over, and You are responsible for, what information is accessible to other users of InFlow Cloud™ and the public. This is done via Your choices in the Online Showroom Settings of our services, and by specific actions that You take from time to time when using our services such as invoicing or adding users to Your account.
Be careful: Your use of our services can also result in making other information accessible to others which is not covered by the Online Showroom Settings as a result of actions that You take. For example, if You choose to allow Public Access to Your Online Showroom and choose to show the Pricing Information, then anyone on the Internet will be able to see Your products with their respective prices. When You add a user to Your account or You issue an invoice through our services, You are handling personal information and should ensure that You do so in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
Please note that we reserve the right to change the Online Showroom Settings and their related default behavior within our services, but we will post notice of such changes on our affected website(s).
