Hawk Design, LLC. (“Hawk Design“) operates https://hawkdesign.co and may operate other websites. It is Hawk Design’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Hawk 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. Hawk Design’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Hawk Design’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Hawk Design may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Hawk Design also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on hawkdesign.co blogs/sites. Hawk 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, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to Hawk Design’s websites choose to interact with Hawk Design in ways that require Hawk Design to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hawk Design gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at hawkdesign.co to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Hawk Design are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Hawk Design collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Hawk Design. Hawk 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.
Hawk Design may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Hawk Design may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Hawk Design does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Hawk Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Hawk Design’s behalf or to provide services available at Hawk Design’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Hawk Design’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hawk Design will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Hawk Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hawk Design believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hawk Design, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Hawk Design website and have supplied your email address, Hawk 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 Hawk Design and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Hawk Design takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to google servers in the United States. Google analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage.
We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
If Hawk Design, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Hawk Design goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Hawk Design may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
When visitors leave comments on This Website we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
