DesignDocs Inc. (“DesignDocs”, “Us”, “Our” or “We”) is concerned about privacy matters and wants you to be familiar with how We collect, use and disclose your personal information.
Personal information means any information about an identifiable individual. Personal information includes such things as age, telephone number, e-mail addresses and mailing address.
DesignDocs identifies the purpose for which your personal information is collected and will be used or disclosed. If that purpose is not listed below, We will do this before or at the time the information is actually being collected. All personal information collected by Us from Website visitors, customers and other individuals (as applicable) is collected, at a minimum, for the following purposes:
DesignDocs will obtain your consent before, or when, We collect, use and/or disclose your personal information. By accepting services from Us, using the Website, or otherwise providing Us with your personal information, you will be deemed to consent to Our use of your personal information for the purposes outlined above. Otherwise, DesignDocs will obtain your express consent (by verbal, written or electronic agreement) to collect, use or disclose your personal information. You can change your consent preferences at any time by contacting DesignDocs (please refer to the “How to Contact Us” section below).
DesignDocs will not use or disclose your personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with your consent or as permitted or required by law or regulatory authorities. Your consent to the collection, use and/or disclosure of your personal information may be either express or implied, depending on the circumstances, the purposes for which such personal information is being collected and the sensitivity of the information.
DesignDocs collects only the information required to provide Our products and services to you. DesignDocs will collect personal information only by clear, fair and lawful means. We will not, as a condition of supplying you with a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the specified, legitimate purpose.
We may collect the following types of information from you:
Under certain exceptional circumstances, DesignDocs may have a legal duty or right to collect, use or disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent. In accordance with applicable laws, We will not disclose any consumer information (which may include personal information) without your written consent, except where consumer information is required to be disclosed: (i) for billing or market operation purposes; (ii) for law enforcement purposes; or (iii) for the purpose of complying with a legal requirement.
You are deemed to consent to disclosure of your personal information for those purposes. If your personal information is shared by Us with third parties, those third parties are bound by appropriate agreements with DesignDocs to secure and protect the confidentiality of your personal information.
DesignDocs will retain your personal information only for so long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected and to meet Our legal and contractual obligations. We will employ explicit retention periods for closed accounts, after which the personal information is destroyed or made anonymous.
We take steps to safeguard your personal information, regardless of the format in which it is held, including, but not limited to: (i) physical security measures, such as restricted access facilities and locked cabinets; (ii) electronic security measures for computerized personal information such as password protection, database encryption and personal identification numbers; (iii) organizational processes such as limiting access to your personal information to a selected group of individuals; and (iv) contractual obligations with third parties who need access to your personal information requiring them to protect and secure your personal information.
We are committed to providing you with understandable and easily available information about Our policy and practices related to management of your personal information.
