How we use Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes, and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Our website uses web analytics services, including, but not limited to, 'Google SEO services' - a web marketing service provided by Google which allows us to measure the effectiveness of our online marketing campaigns. These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our site, and see how they move around the website and our products and services. This in turn helps us make our service to you a lot better. We keep a record of traffic data which is logged automatically by our server, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the website that you visited before ours, and the website you visit after leaving our site. We also collect some site, product, and service statistics such as access rates, page hits and page views. We are not able to identify any individual from traffic data or site statistics.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Controlling your personal information


You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways:


  • Whenever you are asked to fill in a form on the website, look for the box that you can click to indicate that you do not want the information to be used by anybody for direct marketing purposes

  • If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by emailing us at

Sharing your information

We may share your information with:


  • Third party businesses with whom we are collaborating to provide a service to you, so that this service can be provided. For example, if you wish to place an order with us, it will be delivered by a third party courier. That third party may also wish to use your information for other purposes and that third party should inform you of those purposes. We therefore encourage you to read any third party's privacy policies.

  • Third parties which supply services to use or which process information on our behalf (for example, payment providers and website hosts, where relevant). These third parties may have incidental access to your information, but we will ensure that they keep your information secure and do not use it for their own purposes.

  • Another organisation if we sell or buy (or negotiate sell or buy) any business or asset.

  • Another organisation to whom we transfer our agreement with you.

  • With our founders or potential funders, such as our bank and with our professional advisers who have a reasonable need to see it. We may pass collective information about the use of our website or our products or services to third parties, but this will not include information that can be used to identify you. We will disclose your information if we are required to by law. We may disclose your information to enforcement authorities if they ask us to, or a third party in the context of actual or threatened legal proceedings, provided we can do so without breaching data protection laws.




We value your privacy and want you to understand the choices and control you have over your information with Flanagan Flooring Distribution. To help explain those choices and give you that control, we have recently made some changes to Flanagan Flooring Distribution policies.


We have updated our Privacy Policy to take into account the new requirements of the GDPR. We encourage you to review the below. Highlights include:


  • Transparency: We've provided additional details about the information we collect and how we use that information. We've also explained your choices and the control you have over your information.

  • GDPR: On May 25th. a new European Union (EU) data protection law, the General Protection Regulation (GDPR), takes effect. The GDPR gives individuals in the EU more control over how their data is used and places certain obligations on businesses that process information of those individuals.

  • Functionality: Depending on your location, we may provide you with the ability to access, download, and request deletion of your personal information.


At Flanagan Flooring Distribution, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers on our website, through our newsletters and on our database.
