Our browser-based app version and website also places cookies (session cookies and persistent cookies) as necessary to provide functionality to you. We associate usage data with your device and your personal account. We process usage information to deliver, improve and optimize our Petal Closet service, to protect you, us and other users from actual or potential fraud and misuse, and to determine what information, features, promotional information and other services you need or may be interested in.

You may opt out of geo-location information collection by editing the setting at your device level.


Cookie Statement

The cookies we use on our browser-based app and website do not hold any personal information about you. Where personally identifiable information is required to be gathered, the need for this information will be clearly communicated before you choose to provide the information. Information collected by cookies may be used to serve interest-based advertising about Petal Closet’s service. If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising click here. Please note you will continue to receive transactional data and general ads.


Many Internet browsers allow you to adjust your cookie preferences or delete existing cookies. If you set your browser to reject cookies, you should be aware that certain browser-based app or website features, promotions or services may not be available to you or may not function correctly.


Certain Internet browsers may enable you to set "do not track" preferences, to limit the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Petal Closet’s systems do not respond to Internet browser "do not track" signals or similar mechanisms.


Data Retention and Access

We retain account and usage data as long as required by applicable law. We may retain personal information from your account to collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, complete investigations, prevent fraud, enforce our Terms of Service User Agreement, or take other actions as required or permitted by law.


If you close your Petal Closet account we will inactivate the account within less than 10 business days. Please keep in mind that others can retain messages and content that you have sent them or posted publicly before you closed your account and, as we are a financial institution, we keep deactivated account information for a certain time period in our archives before we can delete any data.
