Personal Information Collected By ND Graphics
ND Graphics uses information that we collect from our customers and visitors to personalize and improve your visit and shopping experience at the Site. We gather the following types of information:
Information You Give to Us: We collect Personal Information that is provided by Site users. “Personal Information” includes your name, address, telephone number, credit or debit card information, email address and IP address. Personal Information is collected when you establish an account with us, place an order on the Site, participate in a contest, sweepstakes or on-line survey, or when you communicate with any of our departments such as Customer Service or Tech Support through the Site, telephone, mail or fax.
Orders: If you place an order through the Site, you will be required to provide contact, billing, and payment information.
Email Newsletter Subscriptions: Upon opening an account through the Site, you will be given the option of receiving the ND Graphics email newsletter based on the Personal Information you have provided. If you request an email newsletter subscription, we will send you an email confirming your request. This confirmation process allows you to unsubscribe if you change your mind and decide not to join the list. Furthermore, the confirmation email will alert you if someone else has entered your email address into our email newsletter subscription list. In order to make our email newsletters more relevant and useful to you, our servers may receive a confirmation when you open an email message from ND Graphics.
Contest and Sweepstakes Entrants: From time to time, we may run contests or sweepstakes. If you enter a contest or sweepstakes sponsored by us, we employ a double opt-in subscription program. Upon registration, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provide to us in connection with your entry which will include instructions, or a link to instructions, for completing the subscription process. You will not be entered until you click through the link in the email we send to you or otherwise follow the instructions contained therein. In order to make our contests and sweepstakes more relevant to you, our servers may receive a confirmation when you open an email message from us.
We will collect, use or disclose your personal information only with your knowledge and consent, except where required or permitted by law. We will not make your consent a requirement to the supply of a product or a service other than required to be able to supply the product or service.
Consent can be express or, in some circumstances, implied, and given in writing, by using or not using a check-off box, electronically, orally (in person or by telephone), or by your conduct, such as use of a product or service.
In determining the type of consent to obtain, we will consider all relevant factors, including the sensitivity of the information and your reasonable expectations.
You may withdraw your consent at any time, on reasonable notice, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. We will inform you of the implications of doing so.
Use of Information Collected
We use your personal information in an effort to improve your experience on the Site, to provide services to you and to communicate with you about information that you request. We may also use this information to help us target specific offers to you, to help us develop and improve our Site, and to tailor our Site to your interests.
Sharing of Information with Third Parties
Credit Card Companies: If you place an order through the Site, the Personal Information you provide is transmitted to your credit card company to verify and authorize your purchase.
Credit application: If you apply for a credit account with us, information provided by you may be used to request and obtain a credit report from third parties or may be sent to a third party for processing. If you are an individual, we will not request or obtain a credit report unless we have your express consent to do so.
Shippers: If you make a purchase through the Site, your name, telephone number and shipping information must be provided to third party shippers to deliver your purchase.
Law Enforcement and Protection of Users: To the extent permitted by law, we will disclose Personal Information to government authorities or third parties pursuant to a legal request, subpoena or other legal process. We may also use or disclose your information as permitted by law to perform charge verifications, report or collect debts owed, fight fraud or protect our rights or property as well as those of our customers. You should be aware that, following disclosure to any third party, your Personal Information may be accessible by others to the extent permitted or required by applicable law.
Security and safeguards
We will protect personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, including through the use of the following measures: physical (e.g., locked filing cabinets, restricted access, appropriate disposal of personal information), organizational (e.g., security clearances, access only on a “need to know” basis), technological (e.g., passwords, encryption) and training of employees.
We employ 128-bit encryption technology in all areas of the Site which require you to provide your personal or account information, including those areas related to online ordering, order status, catalogue request and contest forms. The Site utilizes industry-standard firewalls and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of potentially sensitive Personal Information, such as your name, address and credit card number.
You should recognize, however, that no computer system is fully secure and that there are inherent risks associated with Internet transactions. To make sure you have the latest security features on your browser, you may want to download the most recent version of your favorite browser, which should have full SSL support.
Access to your Personal Information
You have a right to challenge the accuracy and completeness of your personal information and to have it amended, as appropriate. You also have a right to request access to your personal information and receive an accounting of how that information has been used and disclosed, subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law. For example, if the requested information would reveal personal information about another individual, your access may be limited or denied. If your request for access is denied, we will notify you in writing of the reason for the denial.
To request access or to amend your personal information, please contact us or write to our Privacy Officer at the address below. We will respond within 30 days of receipt of your written request.
