Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information
When you open a wholesale account with John F.

When you place an online order, or contact our sales department to place an order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, billing address, telephone number and credit card information. This information allows us to process your order, and to notify you of your order status.
When you sign up for our e-mail newsletter, we need only your e-mail address.
We contract with a partner company to provide credit card processing. We provide this company with only the information they need to perform their services and work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected. This company is prohibited by contract from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than JF Allen & Son. For your protection, neither JF Allen nor our credit processing partner store your credit card information and you must re-enter your credit card details each time you make a new purchase on this site.
When you provide us your e-mail address, we may send you e-mails necessary to process your order, respond to a request, or provide customer service.
