Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Biscuit By Design collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Biscuit By Design’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Biscuit By Design s visitors use its services. From time to time, Biscuit By Design may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its services.

Biscuit By Design also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in. Biscuit By Design only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users of Biscuit By Design online services choose to interact with Biscuit By Design in ways that require Biscuit By Design to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Biscuit By Design gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who sign up for a Biscuit By Design shop user account to provide a username, email address and company information. Those who engage in transactions with Biscuit By Design – by purchasing additional access to the available online services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Biscuit By Design collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the user’s interaction with our online services. Biscuit By Design does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Biscuit By Design may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Biscuit By Design may monitor the most popular uses of Biscuit By Design.biz to better optimise the user interface in future releases.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Biscuit By Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to lawful legal procedure, court order or other legal governmental request, or when Biscuit By Design believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Biscuit By Design, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Biscuit By Design web service and have supplied your email address, Biscuit By Design may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Biscuit By Design and our products. We primarily use our various online communication mediums to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Biscuit By Design takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
