At nickelndimedesign.com (NaDD), we believe it is important to protect and respect the privacy of our customers and visitors to our website, nickelndimedesign.com, and affiliated sites, forwards and redirect sites (the “Site”). We are committed to ensuring your privacy as a guest and a customer as set forth below, and we know you care about how your personal information is collected, used, and shared.
General. In general, you can browse the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you (“Personal Information”). Generally, this information is requested when you contact us for information or sign up for our online marketing or administrative services (“Services”). We use your Personal Information for the following primary purposes:
- To facilitate the marketing and delivery of our Services.
- To make our Site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- To help you quickly find information on the Site.
- To alert you to special offers, updated information and other services from our company, affiliates, and business partners.
- Collected Information. NaDD may collect information from you in several different ways including the following:
Requests. When you request information from us, by phone or e-mail, through the Site, or by requesting to join our mailing list, we may collect certain personally identifiable information from you. If you respond to a survey or sign up contest or drawing, we may request certain Personal Information. We use this information to provide you with information, customer service, or other services related to your request.
Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Correspondence. If you send us personal correspondence, such as an email or letter, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
Third Party Referral. We may collect certain personally identifiable information regarding you when a third party may voluntarily provides such information, such as when using a “Send To A Friend” option with respect to our communications.
Public/Sponsored Events. NaDD participates in many public events and events with multiple sponsors, such as trade shows and seminars. The events generally collect certain personally identifiable information from all attendees and distribute this data in whole or in part to all the event sponsors including NaDD. While we cannot control and are not responsible for the practices of other sponsors for these events, NaDD will maintain the privacy of its copy of your personal information received in this way.
Site Usage. NaDD may monitor your activities, preferences, and transactional data (such as your IP address) relating to your use of the Site and/or services and log this information. This information may be used to diagnose Site technical problems. We also use personal and non-personal information in aggregate or statistical form in order to improve our Services, services and procedures. This means that information from many persons and/or web site visits is grouped together in a way that does not disclose the personal information of any particular person. For example, we track how many people have expressed interest in a particular Service and what kinds of web browsers are most often used when visiting our web site. Among other things, this information helps us determine which of our Services and services are successful and which should be changed or discontinued.
Web Beacons. Web beacons are very small, invisible graphics present on web pages or emails that help us track when the page or email has been accessed. Some parts of the Site, emails and other files may use web beacons, also known as clear gif technology or action tags. We do not use web beacons to collect, use or store any Personal Information about you.
Customer Service. Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we may send you a confirmation e-mail to act as a receipt of your purchase. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries and to provide the services you request.

In such cases, we strictly limit the information provided to these third parties to the minimum necessary for them to perform the functions for which we have retained them and prohibit them from using the information for any other purpose or retaining it after it is not longer needed.

You should be aware, however, that no data transmitted over the Internet, sent through the mail or stored on a computer is 100% secure and that we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data while in transmission to us.
