There are two types of information collected when you visit our website: public information and personal information.
- Public information - such as IP address, domain type, browser version, service provider – is recorded during each visitor’s use of our site. This information helps us to know our customers better so we can serve you more efficiently. For example, public information will tell us how frequently our visitors browse a particular page, and we, in turn, use these trends to help us decide what items you would like to see included in our next sales promotion.
- Private information – When you sign up for an account with DesignerLiving or when you place an order with us, we ask you for information including, but not limited to your name, address, phone number, and credit card number. This information is used to service your request, deliver your product, answer your inquiries, and process returns and exchanges. The information is also used to develop, market, and sell products to you in the form of surveys, promotions, and enhanced web experience. You have the choice to opt out of any promotional and marketing materials by following the simple instructions at the bottom of each message.
Most people are not concerned as much with how DesignerLiving uses the information, but more so with if/when/why your personal information will be shared with third parties. DesignerLiving will share your personal information only with those parties who need the information in order to help us serve you by performing their various functions. These third parties may include our printer, mailing house, shipping company, survey firm, database administrators, etc. We may also disclose your personal information when we deem it appropriate to comply with the law. Finally, if DesignerLiving were ever merged or purchased by another entity, we would share our customer information with this business entity as well as retaining a copy for our records as well.
