2. Information Collected
Aggregate technical information (such as IP addresses, screen resolution, browser language, etc.) and anonymous demographic information (such as your postal or zip code, the web site that you came from, etc.) is collected during your usage of the Services.
3. Use of Information
We use personal information and other demographic or profile information you provide to us to fulfill your orders or requests, to attempt to prevent fraudulent transactions, to improve the content of our web page in order to enhance your experience, and to contact you when necessary.
Whenever possible, we use non-identifiable information (such as IP addresses and anonymous demographic information) rather than personal information. Non-identifiable information is used to tailor your experiences with our Services by showing content in which we think you will be interested and displaying content according to your preferences. We may use aggregate data for a variety of purposes, including analysing user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in (and use of) the various portions and areas of our Services. We also use the information collected to evaluate and improve our Services and analyse traffic to our Services.
Personal information collected on our Services is typically stored and processed in the United Kingdom; however, in some instances, it may be transferred, stored, and/or processed in other jurisdictions. It is important for you to note that the laws on holding data in any country in which we transfer, store or process your data may be less stringent than the laws of your country, but Designer-24 intends to adhere to the principles set forth in this Policy, unless otherwise required by applicable laws. By using our Services, you consent to the transfer of your personal information to any country in the world in accordance with the terms of this Policy.
The portions of our website (and our other Services) that handle sensitive confidential information are secured with Magento - Ecommerce Application. We are committed to maintaining the security of your information and have measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. All Designer-24 employees who have access to, or are associated with, the processing of personal information are contractually obligated to respect the confidentiality of your information and abide by the privacy standards we have established. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we cannot (and do not) guarantee the absolute security of personal information.
5. Sharing of Information with Third Parties
Designer-24 may share your information with our agents, processors, or contractors in order to fulfil your purchase order. We may also transfer information between our affiliates and related companies. You should note, however, that Designer-24 is opposed to spam mail activities and does not participate in such mailings, nor do we release or authorise the use of membership data for such purposes.
We may use statistical analysis of aggregate information to inform advertisers of aggregate user demographics and behaviour, as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. We will provide only aggregate data from these analyses to third parties.
We may transfer your information to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, or reorganisation involving Designer-24, its affiliates, related companies, or any of their respective assets.
We may also disclose your information in special cases if required to do so by law, court order, or other governmental authority, or when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is otherwise necessary or advisable, such as to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to – or interfering with – the rights or property of Designer-24, the Services, another user, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities (for example, identify theft or fraud).
7. Use of Web Beacons
8. Use of Advertisements
Any advertisements that may appear in the Services will generally be delivered (or “served”) directly to you by third party advertisers, and they automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer or use other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalise advertising content. Doing this allows them to recognise your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalise advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements were clicked. Third-party advertisers have no access to the information you have provided to Designer-24 unless you choose to provide it to them yourself directly.
9. Retention of Information
Different information is used for different purposes, and is subject to different standards and regulations. In general, information is retained for such period of time as is felt necessary to provide you with services you request, to comply with applicable regulations or legislation, and to ensure that you have a reasonable opportunity to access the information. If you no longer consent to us retaining your personal information, you can request that it be removed by contacting us as at Click Here
If you send us correspondence, including e-mails and faxes, we may retain such information along with any records of your account. We may also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence involving you, Designer-24, our partners, and our suppliers. We may retain these records in order to provide you with services you request, to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violation of Designer‑24’s Terms & Conditions. We may, over time, delete these records.
10. Third Party Websites
The Services may contain links to other Internet websites. By clicking on a third party advertising banner or certain other links, you will be redirected out of the Services and to such third party websites.
We are not responsible for the privacy policies of other websites or services. You should make sure that you read and understand any applicable third party privacy policies, and you should direct any questions or concerns to the relevant third party administrators or webmasters prior to providing any personally identifiable information.
