Like most website operators, DesignSeer.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. DesignSeer.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DesignSeer.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, DesignSeer.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
DesignSeer.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. DesignSeer.com does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
DesignSeer.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, DesignSeer.com may monitor the most popular pages on any competitor site or use spam screened by the Antispam Bee service to help identify spam. DesignSeer.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, DesignSeer.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our website. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. Google also collects Demographics and interests data so that our website may provide you with the best user experience.

Contact / Subscription Forms
Customers that email us, or use any of the contact forms on our websites, will have their email address, IP address, and any data provided in the contact form or body of the email stored in G Suite archives and in our third-party service provider, Mailchimp. We use email marketing to communicate with customers and potential customers from time to time. All email lists and campaigns are “opt-in” meaning we will not send you these sorts of emails unless you indicated that you wish to receive them during signup or other interactions on our website. All marketing emails sent by us will include an unsubscribe link in the footer of the email. Emails sent to you may also include standard tracking, including open and click activities.
Certain visitors to DesignSeer.com choose to interact with DesignSeer.com in ways that require DesignSeer.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DesignSeer.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address.
In each case, DesignSeer.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with DesignSeer.com. DesignSeer.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Who We Share Your Data With
DesignSeer.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on DesignSeer.com’s behalf or to provide services available through DesignSeer.com, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using DesignSeer.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
DesignSeer.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, DesignSeer.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when DesignSeer.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DesignSeer.com, third parties, or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a DesignSeer.com website and have supplied your email address, DesignSeer.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with DesignSeer.com and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. DesignSeer.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, 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.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, 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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
