As of: November 19, 2018

Scope

The West 7th Design Studio Client Portal (“the Portal”), is owned by West 7th Design Studio, LLC (“West 7th Design Studio,” “the Studio,” “w7th,” “we,” or “us”). This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes our information and privacy practices for the Portal. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through the Portal, and does not cover any information collected at any other West 7th Design Studio web site or web property (unless specifically stated).

Information Collected

Your account access for the Portal is created using the information provided in the West 7th Design Studio Design Contract. The Portal web server may collect certain non-personal data, such as the address (or “URL”) of the web site that you came from before visiting the Portal, which pages you visit on the Portal, which browser you used to view the Portal, and your IP address. In connection with this, the Portal and any emails sent from the Portal may utilize cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies. A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your browser from a web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie is essentially your identification card when you return to the Portal. You can set your browser to reject the cookies, although rejecting cookies might affect your ability to use the Portal. A web beacon is a small, often invisible, graphic image included in a web page or email. We may use web beacons for many purposes, such as to count visitors to the Portal or to monitor how visitors navigate the Portal. The Studio does not share non-personal data with potential partners or other third parties.

Use of Personal Information

The Portal stores your name, email address, phone number, and physical address to communicate and contact you with regard to your use of the Portal, project updates, send project estimates and invoices, or, at our discretion, communicate changes to this Privacy Policy, Terms of Use, or other policies. We may also use your information to improve the Portal or the Studio’s services, to customize your experience on the Portal, to serve you specific content, or for other internal business purposes.

Sharing of Personal Information

We do not sell your information to third parties. We may, however, share data with third parties when necessary to fulfill a transaction, complete a service, for administrative purposes, or when required by law. Any data that is shared with third parties is used to meet the Studio’s commitments to you. Additionally, we will share your data if such sharing is required by law or to protect against potential or suspected fraud. Also, if West 7th Design Studio undergoes a merger, corporate reorganization, or all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, your personal data may be shared. If you do not want us to share your personal data in these manners, please do not provide it to us.

Updating Your Personal Information

Should you need to update your personal data, contact the Studio at info@w7th.com so that we may do so.

Securing Your Personal Information

No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you understand that any information that you transfer to us is done at your own risk. That said, once we receive your transmission, we have technical measures in place to help protect your data from loss, manipulation, unauthorized access, etc. We continually adapt our security measures in line with technological progress and developments. We protect your data using encryption using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is a function that encrypts all information sent between you and the Studio, including card information, so that card details cannot be read by external parties.

For card purchases, we work with PayPal and Stripe, two of the leading card processing companies in the US. You can view their security practices here and here.

Privacy Policy Changes

Because the Portal will continue to implement new technologies and improve the services and features the Studio provides, this policy is subject to change. The Studio reserves the right to alter, modify, update, add to, subtract from, or otherwise change this Privacy Policy at any time. We will use your personal data in a manner consistent with the Privacy Policy in effect at the time you submitted the information, unless we receive your consent to the new or revised policy.

Electronic Notices

By using the Portal, you agree that all legal notices may be delivered via email to the email address in your account profile. It is your responsibility to inform us in the event your email address changes so we may update your account. The Studio is not liable for unreceived notices due to a non-working, or a non-current email address. Please contact us to update your information if necessary. By using the Portal you forego the right to written mailed notices. Please email us at info@w7th.com if you have any questions regarding this electronic notice policy.
