What Information Do We Collect, and How Do We Use It?
Like most Web sites, Designorati.com obtains and stores in log files certain pieces of anonymous data about every visit and visitor. Such data includes the internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and version, operating system, referring and exit pages, search engine and search results strings, and clickstream data. This information does not personally identify you, and cannot be linked to you personally. We use this information to better understand and serve our audience by analyzing trends, average browser/operating system profiles, movement through the site, and geographic data.
When you comment on one of our articles the following information is obtained and stored as part of your comment: your name, e-mail address, and IP address. Your name is shown publicly as part of your comment, but your e-mail and IP addresses are kept confidential. We may use your e-mail address for further correspondence relevant to your comment or previous comments, but it will not be added to a mailing list or used for purposes other than direct, person-to-person correspondence. Your IP address when commenting is used to enable site security measures only.
When you fill out certain forms on Designorati.com you will receive an automatic response from our servers. You may also receive a personal response from the editor or writer of the topic or article in question. When you fill out forms additional personal information is objected (phone number, company name, date of birth, etc.)
We limit access to the aforementioned personal information about you to staff who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information in order to respond to you. We have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you.
Designorati.com may update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by placing a prominent notice on our site.
Some of our advertisers occasionally serve you cookies as well. We do not have control over cookies placed by advertisers.
