Most Ferrari owners and enthusiasts value their privacy – a lot. That’s why FLGstory.com will never sell or rent your email address or contact information, period. In fact, other than two exceptions noted below, your personally identifiable information will not leave this website except to accomplish our operations, for example, backing up our servers.
The two exceptions are as follows:
- We reserve the right to include advertisements in our emails to you, although you may unsubscribe at any time. We may also include advertisements in our publications. This is important to note because in some cases your IP address may be visible to a third party when the ad is served.
Any information that you voluntarily disclose online – for example in posts or comments – becomes available to the general public and can be viewed or collected by any third party. This information may be available on the internet once disclosed, whether in our archives or those of third parties.

The information about the content you provide, for example, the date a file was created or the location a picture was taken, is also indirectly collected.
When you visit our publications we may send one or more “cookies” to the browser on your computer.

Log File Information
When you access any website, your browser sends information to that website, including things such as your internet request, IP address, browser type, language, platform type, cookies and so forth. Our servers may record this information. Similarly, interacting with any blog – reading, commenting, posting – creates information, and our servers may record this information, including the types of content you view or engage with, as well as the frequency or duration of those activities.
How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
If you provide personally identifiable or other information to our publications, we may use that information to operate and maintain our publications.
We may use your email address or other information to send marketing or other commercial messages, however not without your consent, unless part of a specific program or feature for which you can opt-in or opt-out as you choose.
We may however use your email address or other information without further consent for administrative or other non-marketing purposes, for example, to notify you about changes to this policy.
When Do We Share the Information We Collect?
Other than the two exceptions noted below, we do not share your personally identifiable information with any third party except to accomplish our operations, for example, backing up our servers or emailing our users.
First, should your content be selected for inclusion in one of our publications, we may choose to cite your name as the source.
Second, we reserve the right to allow third-party companies called ad servers or ad networks to serve ads within our publications or the emails we send out. This is important to note because when these ads are sent to your browser or mail tool, they automatically receive your IP address, and may also send cookies or use other mechanisms to personalize or measure the effectiveness of their ads.
We may also share non-personally-identifiable information – such as anonymous usage data, platform types, number of clicks, etc. – with third parties to help them understand usage patterns for certain features, functions, content, services, advertisements, or promotions in our publications.
Your information may be shared between our publications, and in the event of changes to the ownership or control of all or part of our publications, your information may be transferred or assigned to the new owner.
In the event of bankruptcy or similar conditions, we may be unable to control how your information is shared. Similarly, although we employ commercially reasonable safeguards to protect your information, we cannot, and explicitly do not, guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a security breach or accidentally.
Finally, we may release your personally identifiable or other information as required by law, or in the good-faith belief that doing so is made necessary by law or by a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.
