Who We Are

Our website address is https://digitaldesignerstudio.com/. The ‘https’ designates our use of an SSL certificate to ensure encryption for secure transactions.

We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy whenever you make purchases or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

 

Collection of Information

 

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an account, make a purchase, subscribe to a newsletter or email list, participate in a promotion, communicate with us via third-party social media sites, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us.

The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, password, postal address, phone number, and any other information you choose to provide.

Use of Information

We may use information about you for various purposes, including to:

  • Provide, maintain, improve and promote our products and services;
  • Provide and deliver the information, products and services you request, process transactions and send you related information, including confirmations and receipts;
  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages;

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
