SCOPE OF POLICY

This policy applies to Sierra Designs's treatment of personally identifiable information that Sierra Designs collects through Sierra Designs's website and when you use Sierra Designs's services. The policy does not apply to practices of companies whose websites may be linked to Sierra Designs. For access to the privacy policies of such linked websites, please refer to the information provided by such websites at their home pages. Also see the paragraph below under the heading "Hypertext Links".

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

Sierra Designs collects personally identifiable information when you request information from Sierra Designs. On such occasions, Sierra Designs may ask for your name, email address, zip code and personal information concerning your interests, occupation, gender and other demographic information. Sierra Designs also receives and records information from server logs from your browser including cookie information relating to pages requested.

Sierra Designs 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 inform us (through the Sierra Designs website or telephone number listed above) 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. Your provision of requested information to us through Sierra Designs’s website 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 as noted above and we will remove your information from 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.

Sierra Designs uses the information you provide to us to customize advertising and content that we present to you, to contact you concerning specials and new products and to enhance our product offerings. Sierra Designs 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;
  • Sierra Designs 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
  • Sierra Designs is required to respond to subpoena, court orders or other legal process requiring such disclosure.

USE OF COOKIES

Sierra Designs uses cookies to enhance the interactive nature of your Internet experience and to provide a convenient feature to save you time. Cookies enable Sierra Designs to quickly retrieve specific information from previous visits and to recall features that you may have customized on your browser.

MANAGING YOUR INFORMATION

You are entitled to request access to and correction of all your personal data collected by us via Sierra Designs’s website, as well as to require us to delete your data if you no longer want us to process it. You can make such a request or a related inquiry by contacting us. Please note that there may be a small charge for making an access request or it may be free, depending on the circumstances. You can find out more details by emailing or calling us as provided above. 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 Sierra Designs and you have the right to request deletion of your Sierra Designs account information, subject to Sierra Designs's need to keep appropriate archives of its business operations.

SECURITY

Sierra Designs 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. Sierra Designs utilizes secure socket layer encryption technology and firewall network protection to protect personally identifiable information that is transmitted to Sierra Designs’s e-commerce websites. 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.

Because of the international nature of the services and products provided by Sierra Designs’s website and the nature of Sierra Designs's business, personal data may, subject to applicable law, be transferred internationally throughout Sierra Designs world-wide for the purposes described above. This may mean that personal data are transferred to countries which do not have laws or regulations which protect personal data, such as the United States, where the server for Sierra Designs’s website is located. We use reasonable measures to limit the disclosure of the data you provide to us only to certain staff within Sierra Designs and its affiliates (i.e. staff whose job it is to process your inquiries and survey answers or otherwise to administer Sierra Designs’s website, and those staff involved in the provision of Sierra Designs 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 Sierra Designs’s customers from fraudulent transactions on Sierra Designs’s e-commerce website, 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 credit card billing information, which may include contacting the credit card holder.

MODIFICATIONS TO THIS POLICY

Sierra Designs may make modifications or amendments to this policy from time to time. In the event that such changes alter how Sierra Designs gathers, processes, uses or discloses your personally identifiable information, Sierra Designs will post such changes on our website.
