Your use of this website means you agree to follow and be bound by the terms outlined below. We reserve the right to update or modify these terms at any time without prior notice. For this reason, we encourage you to review this page whenever you use this website. Please use this website only if you agree to these terms.
Your privacy is important to us. When considering customer privacy we are guided by the following principles:
Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.
At NiNDeigns we are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, please be assured that it will only be used as outlined within this privacy statement.
Information that you provide to us is just that — information that you freely give through the use of this website. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
Through the act of visiting this website, we also collect some information automatically:
All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal account information at any time (with the exception that usernames cannot be changed).
Only authorized employees, third-party agents using software required for the use of the services on this website, and contractors (all under agreement to keep information secure and confidential) have access to your personal information. NiNDesigns may at its discretion use other third parties to provide essential services on this website or for our business processes. We may share your details as necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
For users who register on this website, we store the personal information they provide through e-newsletter sign up. Website administrators can also see and edit user information. We only edit or delete a customer’s information at the written request of said customer.
If you leave a comment on this website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
If you have signed up for the e-newsletter through this site, or have left comments on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
When you submit a request to have your data exported or deleted, we will send you a confirmation email to verify your request. If you are requesting to have your data deleted, we will complete the deletion upon your verification. To submit a request to have your data exported or deleted, contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
All emails and e-newsletters distributed from this site allow you to opt out of future mailings at any time.
Our Services are not directed to children under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 18. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under the age of 18, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
While no online service is 100% secure, we take all reasonable precautions and follow industry standard practices to keep your information from being inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed without our permission.
This website has an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate, which is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. For example, when you enter your personal information, it will be securely encrypted before being sent to our server.
When you make a payment, the third party payment processor (e.g. PayPal) receives your full payment information; we receive only a funding confirmation.
If a data breach is determined to have occurred, we work with our Customer Service team to notify those customers involved, and with our security partners to implement a solution, as quickly as possible.
