Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at any point as set out below.
  • Legitimate Interests: We may use your personal information if it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and if your interests and fundamental rights do not override those legitimate interests.

In general, we also use information for the following purposes:

  • To customize the advertising and content you see, to improve the Services, to contact you about the Services, to conduct research, and to provide reporting for Third Parties.

Advertisers may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria - for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area. By interacting with or viewing an ad, you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad. We may provide personal information to an advertiser if you interact with or view a targeted ad.

Generally, we rely on your consent and our performance of our agreement with you as the legal basis for collecting and processing your personal data.

You have the right to withdraw consent and stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes at any time by contacting us. To opt out, please email our Data Protection Officer, Jacob Slevin at jacob@designerpages.com.

4. Who may we share your personal data with?

In servicing your account, we may provide your personal information to:

  • Our affiliates such as our parent companies, our subsidiaries and any subsidiaries of our parent companies.
  • Non-affiliated service providers, only as permitted by law. For example, we may share such information in connection with the administration and operations of our Company, including disclosure to attorneys, accountants, auditors, administrators, or companies that may provide us with professional advice or assist us with mailing statements or processing your transactions.
  • Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice; and
  • Third-parties, pursuant to your use of Parade as detailed at the end of Section 3.

We limit disclosure of your personal data to the parties listed above who have a business need to know and require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Within the Company and its affiliates, access to the nonpublic personal information of our customers is restricted to employees who need to access that information to provide services to our customers.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

5. How do we protect your data?

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To guard your nonpublic personal information, physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards are in place that comply with federal standards. Your right to privacy extends to all forms of contact with us, including telephone, written correspondence, and electronic media. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

6. How long will we store your personal data?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Where and when applicable, if at all, by law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity and transaction data) for seven years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data, please see below for further information.

7. Your rights concerning access, correction, deletion and processing of personal information

As the subject of data processing you have the right to:

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We will try to respond to your request within one month of the receipt of the request. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

You have the right to direct us not to sell your personal information (the "right to opt-out"). If you have opted-in to the sale of your personal information, you may opt-out of future sales at any time.

Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve months before asking you to reauthorize the sale of your personal information. You may change your mind and opt back in to the sale of your personal information at any time by making that selection in a Company Privacy Policy Request.

To exercise your right to know or your right to delete, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us as indicated in the "Contact Us" section (Section 15) of this Privacy Policy. Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may only make a verifiable consumer request to exercise your right to know twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights described above. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not deny you goods or services; charge you different prices or rates for goods or services; provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services. However, please note that if we are unable to provide your personal information to our sponsors or partners it may mean that you will not receive benefits provided to other consumers (e.g., sample products or services).
