I. Personally-Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE may collect two different types of information, Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”). PII is information that identifies you as an individual – for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information, billing address and shipping information. Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools and other information that does not reveal your specific identity. PII and Non-PII may be collected anytime you access or use a DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE website. PII and Non-PII may also be collected by DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE during in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE also collects information via cookies; blocking cookies may render you unable to access certain DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE products, services, or websites.
DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE uses PII to respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE thinks may be of interest to you, and otherwise personalize your experience with DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE, and other reasons. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE does not sell or lease PII about you to others. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE may share PII with DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE affiliates and third parties contracting with DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE to provide services to you, e.g., financial institutions. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE may also share PII when required by law, or when you have expressly requested DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE to do so. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE reserves the right to disclose and use your PII if DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE believes it is necessary to: (a) respond to legal process, e.g., a subpoena; (b) respond to a law enforcement agency’s request; (c) enforce the Terms; or (d) protect the rights, privacy, safety, property, or operations of DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE or third parties;
Because Non-PII does not personally identify You, DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE reserves the right to use and disclose to third parties Non-PII for any purpose.
DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE maintains reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to protect PII from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE enforces its Privacy Policy via self-assessment.
DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE reserves the right to change this privacy notice, which changes will become effective upon posting of the revised notice, or upon emailing of the changes to You at the email address You provided to DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE, or as required by law.
II. Links to or From Other Sites.
Except where expressly stated by DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE, DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE is not affiliated or associated with operators of any third party websites that link to or are linked from any DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE-maintained website. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy or content of information found on third party websites that link to or are linked from any DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE website. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE disclaims any responsibility for the security of any information (including without limitation credit card and personally identifiable information (“PII”)) that you may provide to any third party. DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE reserves the right, at any time and in its sole and absolute discretion, to block links to any DIGITAL DESIGN EMPIRE-maintained website through technological or other means without prior notice.
