Data Collection and Personally Identifiable Information.
- Overview and Definition of Personally Identifiable Information.
In providing our Services or otherwise interacting with you through your use of our Website(s) or our Services, we may collect your personally identifiable information (“PII”). PII includes personal information such as the user’s name, email address, account profiles and passwords, IP address, telephone number, physical addresses, and anything else a user provides to us that can in any manner identify the user individually.
- Methods of Information Collection, Including Collection of PII.
Your information, including your PII, and any other information you input via use of our Website(s) or Services may be collected through your direct interactions with our Website(s), email or written correspondence, telephone calls, or web based forms or from third party providers.
We also may place a “cookie” (a small file) on your hard drive during your access to any of our Website(s) or use of our Services to help us identify the number of unique visitors to our Website(s), learn what our users’ technology preferences are, monitor the functionality of our Website(s) and/or Services, help with authentication/login and otherwise improve our Services.
We may also use “local storage”, a feature of your browser, to retain information locally regarding your usage to improve our Services. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer or do not wish for us to use “local storage” you may adjust your web browser settings accordingly. If adjustment is not feasible, you may elect to refrain from using our Services or accessing our Website(s). Please be aware that restricting cookies may impede your ability to use our Site or our Services or certain features of our Site or our Services.
Like most Internet services, we use log files on the server side. The data held in log files includes your IP address, browser type, email application, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit Web pages, computer platform type, date/time stamp, and user activity. The Company uses server log data to analyze trends, administer the Services offered through our Website(s) and otherwise administer our Website(s).
The software enabling the Website(s) and the Services has associated log and temporary files that are stored on Company controlled servers. These files may store your account information, preference settings, system notifications as well as other data necessary to enable you to participate on the Site and/or use the Services. Your information may also exist within regularly performed server backups.
Additionally, if you log-in to any of our Services using a 3rd Party Authenticator (as defined in Section 5 below), we may receive and collect your third party service log-in, email, profile picture, and/or other information transmitted by such 3rd Party Authenticator to us.
- Use and Disclosure of PII.
We use your PII to (i) create any applicable user accounts, (ii) communicate with you about Services you have purchased, (iii) offer you additional products and services, (iv) allow use of the Sites and the applicable Services you have purchased, (v) process service requests, (vi) provide access to secure areas of the Sites, (vii) send invoices for our Services and process payments related thereto, and (viii) ensure compliance with intellectual property and other applicable laws. We also use PII to the extent necessary to enforce all applicable agreements with you (“Use Agreements”), monitor adherence to all applicable Use Agreements, and to attempt to prevent and/or detect fraud, as well as to allow third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf as long as those third parties have agreed to use the level of privacy protections commensurate with industry norms.
For example, your account information is stored on servers controlled by the Company and if you forget your log-in password, you will be asked to enter your email address on record with the Company in order to gain access to the applicable Website or Service. Moreover, we collect additional information from you when you provide us with on-line comments or feedback via our Website(s) or via our Services or post information about yourself or others to a Website or via the Services. This information, if any, is available to others accessing the Website or Service (as applicable). We work to process and maintain accurately the information that you share with us and will use commercially reasonable efforts to allow you the ability to change or modify your user information in order to enhance your ability to use our Websites and the Services you have purchased.
Additionally, when you purchase or subscribe to a Service, we collect your contact information (such as your address) and may collect your financial information (such as your credit/debit card information). We use the information you provide only to complete that Service order or to otherwise fulfill the Service. We do not share this information with unaffiliated parties except to the extent necessary to complete that transaction. If we have trouble processing an order, we use the information to contact you. For clarification, we may use third party vendors to process payment transactions (the “Payment Processors”) and you agree to such use and understand that the terms and conditions (and privacy and security policies) of such vendors shall govern and control for all purposes with respect to all applicable payment processing transactions related to your purchases. By using our Services, you understand and agree that we have no liability for the action, behaviors or failings of our Payment Processors.
We do not rent or sell your PII to anyone and we share your PII only as described below.
Advertisers: We may allow advertisers to choose demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and you agree that we may use any of the information we have collected from you (including, without limitation, information you may have decided not to show to other users or your PII) to select or allow the advertiser to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We anticipate that we may become affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses may sell items or services to you through the Website. In other situations, Dream Site Designer may provide services, or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, and we will share your PII that is related to such transactions with that affiliated business.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to administer the Website and provide Services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use PII we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of PII for the above purposes.
User profiles: User profile information including users’ name, email address, and other information you may enter (“User Submissions”) may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within our Website(s) or Services. Email addresses are used to add new User Submissions to user profiles and to communicate through User Submissions. Users’ email addresses will not be directly revealed to other users by us, except, when the user is “connected” to another user via a shared group membership, or an invitation, or if the user has chosen to include their email address in their User Profile.
Communication in response to User Submissions: As part of our Website(s) and Services, you will receive from Dream Site Designer email and other communication relating to your User Submissions. You acknowledge and agree that by posting such User Submissions, Dream Site Designer may send you email and other communication that it determines in its sole discretion relate to your User Submissions.
Protection of Dream Site Designer and Others: We may release PII when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Dream Site Designer, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. WE CAN (AND YOU AUTHORIZE US TO) DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOU TO LAW ENFORCEMENT, OTHER GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY THAT WE, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION, BELIEVE NECESSARY OR APPROPRIATE IN CONNECTION WITH AN INVESTIGATION OF FRAUD, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT, OR OTHER ACTIVITY THAT IS ILLEGAL OR MAY EXPOSE US, OR YOU, TO LIABILITY.
With Your Consent: In addition to the matters set forth above, we may also share your PII upon receipt of your consent.
- Hosted Data.
Through its Services, the Company provides technology hosting services used to host a variety of internet-based solutions, including internet-based communications and applications (including website hosting) as well as other information your users input via use any website operated by you that the Company hosts. As a result, the Company’s hosting services store and transmit information about our customers, their business, as well as information collected or inputted by those businesses (the “Hosted Info”). Hosted Info may include PII and other information that belongs to you and/or your employees or other service providers and/or your end-users.

- General Security Overview and Disclaimers.
Substantially all information Dream Site Designer receives from you or via your use of our Website(s) or Services are copied, stored and managed through computer servers owned or controlled by Dream Site Designer. While we attempt to employ security techniques to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the organization, you should be aware that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet; third parties may unlawfully or improperly intercept or access transmissions, personal information, or private communications. As such, we cannot make any assurances that a security breach will not occur that may expose your personally identifiable information to others.
For example, our servers are not located at Dream Site Designer but rather are managed and located at a third-party Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider (an “IAAS”). We have taken commercially reasonable steps to choose a professional IAAS provider but we cannot guarantee the performance of the IAAS provider, its security measures, or the actions or inactions it takes in the future. By using our Website(s) or Services, you understand and agree that we have no liability for the action, behaviors or failings of our IAAS provider or any of our other subcontractors.
Also, please understand that except with respect to online payment information described below, Dream Site Designer does not encrypt in any manner any information you choose to share or distribute through use of the Dream Site Designer Platform.
With respect to on-line payments, if any, we use encryption and secure https protocol to communicate with your browser software, which guards against interception of on-line payment and/or credit card information you give us.
Your PII may also be protected by a password chosen by you for your privacy and security. You need to ensure that there is no unauthorized access to your account and PII by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer (or other device) and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
Additionally, we may use third party sign in providers to authenticate users of our Services, such as Google Signin and OneLogin (the “3rd Party Authenticators”). You understand that your information (including PII) may be made available to and stored by such 3rd Party Authenticators and by using our Services, you understand and agree that we have no liability for the action, behaviors or failings of our 3rd Party Authenticators.

Access; Avoidance of Sensitive Information; COPPA Compliance.
Upon request, we will grant you reasonable access to your PII held by us.

This allows us to ensure full functionality of our Website(s) and Services.
