Clear Gifs Information
When you use the Website, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously.

The information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and make WiseDesigner better for our users.
Third Party Websites
How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Website.
By providing us with your email address (including by “following,” “liking,”, linking your account to the WiseDesigner Website, etc., on a third party website or network), you consent to our using the email address to send you Website-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail.

Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers. You may not opt out of Website-related e-mails.
Following termination or deactivation of your User account, we may retain your profile information and User Content for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, we may retain and continue to use indefinitely all information (including User Content) contained in your communications to other Users or posted to public or semi-public areas of the Website after termination or deactivation of your User account.
We may use certain information about you and/or your User Content internally for purposes such as analyzing how the Website is used, diagnosing Website or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing content.
How We Share Your Information
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Website, such as User Content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings. To change your privacy settings on the Website, visit your account settings page. If you remove information that you posted to the Website, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Website, or if other Users have copied or saved that information.
From time to time, we may run contests, special offers, or other events or activities (“Events”) on the Website together with a third party partner. If you provide information to such third parties, you give them permission to use it for the purpose of that Event and any other use that you approve. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with a third party, you can choose not to participate in these Events.
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain WiseDesigner Websites.
How We Protect Your Information
We care about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to WiseDesigner or guarantee that your information on the Website may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of WiseDesigner’s distributors, such as social networks. We are not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from WiseDesigner, at all times.
Compromise of Personal Information
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Website, in which case WiseDesigner may not be able to provide certain Websites to you. You may update or correct your account information and email preferences at any time by logging in to your account settings page. You can review and correct the information about you that WiseDesigner keeps on file by contacting us directly at email@example.com.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register as Members. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on WiseDesigner. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
