SCOPE OF THIS POLICY

This policy applies to the treatment of personally identifiable information that DNA collects through our website and our services. The policy does not apply to practices of companies whose websites may be linked to DNA. For access to the Privacy Policies of such linked websites, please refer to the information provided by such websites on their homepages. Also, see the paragraph below under the heading “Hypertext Links.”

HOW WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR INFORMATION

From time to time, DNA collects personally identifiable information, which may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, zip code and personal information concerning your interests, occupation, gender and other demographic information.

DNA does not seek to collect such information from persons under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not submit any such information to us. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 18 who has provided such information to us, please contact us at 888.504.8812 or at info@dnadesigncollective.com and we will remove such information from our database as described further below.

In addition, no person (of any age) is required to provide us with the personally identifiable information we request. If you do not wish to provide such information, you are free not to do so, although that may prevent you from using certain features or taking full advantage of all of our offerings on our website. Your provision of requested information to us through dnadesigncollective.com or other means is presumed by us to be voluntary and with your consent to the uses described herein. If, after submitting personally identifiable information to us, you wish to “opt-out,” please contact us at 888.504.8812 or at info@dnadesigncollective.com, and we will disable the account that contains your information in our database as set forth below in the section titled “Managing Your Information.” Please know that such a decision will not stop advertising or content that is generated prior to the time when we can accomplish the removal of your information.

DNA also receives and records information from server logs from your browser, including cookie information relating to pages requested. We treat this information as non-personal, unless required to do otherwise by applicable laws. Some web browsers and devices permit you to broadcast a preference that you not be “tracked” online. At this time, we do not modify your experience based on any such signal or broadcast.

DNA uses the information you provide to us to customize advertising and content that we present to you, to contact you concerning specials, abandoned shopping carts and new products, and to enhance our product offerings. DNA will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to any third party except when:

  • you have been given an opportunity to “opt-out” of sharing the information and have declined to exercise that right within the time period provided;
  • DNA must share the information in order to provide a product or service that you have requested, in which case, we will demand that any third party we use to fulfill your order agree that it does not have the right to use the personally identifiable information other than to fulfill your request; or
  • DNA is required to respond to subpoena, court orders or other legal processes requiring such disclosure.

USE OF COOKIES

DNA uses cookies to enhance the interactive nature of your Internet experience and to provide a convenient feature to save you time. Cookies enable us to quickly retrieve specific information from previous visits and to recall features that you may have customized on your browser. We may also use other tracking mechanisms such as web beacons to collect marketing statistics.

You may at any time “opt out” of DNA’s use of cookies, web beacons or other tracking mechanisms through your browser settings. However, disabling such features may prevent you from using certain features or taking full advantage of all of our offerings on our website.

MANAGING YOUR INFORMATION

You are entitled to request access to and correction of all your personal data collected by us through dnadesigncollective.com, as well as to require us to disable the account that contains your data if you no longer want us to process it. You can make such a request or a related inquiry at 888.504.8812, or at info@dnadesigncollective.com. We will keep your data as long as it is reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. You may choose not to receive unsolicited marketing material from DNA, and you have the right to request your DNA account information be disabled, subject to our need to keep appropriate archives of our business operations.

SECURITY

DNA employs reasonable measures to maintain all personally identifiable information provided by you on computer servers in a controlled and secured environment in an effort to hinder unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of such information. DNA utilizes secure socket layer encryption technology and firewall network protection to protect personally identifiable information that is transmitted to dnadesigncollective.com. Unfortunately, the nature of the Internet is such that information may be transmitted over networks without appropriate security measures and may be accessed, deleted, altered, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons at that time.

Because of the international nature of the services and products we provide on our website and the nature of our business, personal data may, subject to applicable law, be transferred internationally throughout DNA worldwide for the purposes described above. This may mean that personal data are transferred to countries which do not have laws or regulations that protect personal data, unlike the United States does, where the server for our website is located. We use reasonable measures to limit the disclosure of the data you provide to us only to certain staff within DNA and our affiliates (i.e. staff whose job it is to process your inquiries and survey answers or otherwise to administer dnadesigncollective.com, and those staff involved in the provision of our services and products which may be of interest to you) and to require that they process the data only for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy.

To protect our customers from fraudulent transactions on dnadesigncollective.com, all orders are subject to review and verification. As part of the verification process, an order may be temporarily placed on hold in order to verify order information: that includes, but is not limited to, credit card billing information, which may involve contacting the credit card holder directly.

MODIFICATIONS TO THIS POLICY

DNA may make modifications or amendments to this policy from time to time. In the event that such changes alter how we gather, process, use, or disclose your personally identifiable information, we will post such changes on our website.
