practices of company (“we,” “us,” and “our”).
Unless otherwise stated, this Policy describes and governs the information
collection, use, and sharing practices of company with respect to your use of our
website http://www.donriedesigns.com. and the services (“Services”) we provide and/or host on
Before you use or submit any information through or in connection with the
Services, you understand that your information will be collected, used, and
We collect information in multiple ways, including when you provide information directly to us; when we passively collect information from you, such as from your
browser or device; and from third parties. We will collect any information you provide to us. We may collect information from
you in a variety of ways, such as when you: (a) create an online account, (b) make
a donation or purchase, (c) contact us or provide feedback, (d) subscribe to our
newsletter, or (e) subscribe to our newsletter. This information may include but is
not limited to your name, email address, phone number, mailing address, payment
information and your geographic location.
We also collect data about your use of the Services through the use of Internet
server logs and online tracking technologies, like cookies and/or tracking pixels. A
web server log is a file where website activity is stored. A cookie is a small text file
that is placed on your computer when you visit a website, that enables us to: (a)
recognize your computer; (b) store your preferences and settings; (c) understand
the web pages of the Services you have visited and the referral sites that have led
you to our Services; (d) enhance your user experience by delivering content
specific to your inferred interests; (e) perform searches and analytics; and (f) assist
with security administrative functions. Tracking pixels (sometimes referred to as
web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny electronic tags with a unique identifier
embedded in websites, online ads and/or email, and that are designed to provide
usage information like ad impressions or clicks, measure popularity of the Services
and associated advertising, and to access user cookies. We may also use tracking
technologies in our license buttons and/or icons that you can embed on other
sites/services to track the website addresses where they are embedded, gauge
user interaction with them, and determine the number of unique viewers of them. If
you receive email from us (such as the CC newsletter, campaign updates, or other
ongoing email communications from CC), we may use certain analytics tools, such
as clear GIFs, to capture data such as whether you open our message, click on any
links or banners our email contains, or otherwise interact with what we send. This
data allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing
campaigns. As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather additional
information through other methods.
Please note that you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being
set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of
your browser for more information. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies,
you may not have access to certain features or offerings of the Services.
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Information from Third Parties
the extent permitted by law, we may also collect information from third parties,
including public sources, social media platforms, and marketing and market
research firms. Depending on the source, this information collected from third
parties could include name, contact information, demographic information,
information about an individual’s employer, information to verify identity or
trustworthiness, and information for other fraud or safety protection purposes.
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.
