Information We Automatically Collect

When you use DeckWise®’s website that connects to the Internet, including, but not limited to, when you access the products via www.DeckWise.com, we may collect certain information as described below for such purposes as improvement of our products and software services, troubleshooting bugs, providing the Services, managing the products, security and monitoring purposes, tracking and analyzing usage, providing content for referring traffic sources and improving overall performance of the products. We may use third party analytics providers and technologies, including cookies and similar tools, to assist in collecting this information.

As discussed further below, we may collect and store this information in a way that it is linked to you personally, unless you have chosen to opt out.

Websites:

When you use any of our websites we may collect and analyze information such as your IP address, browser types, browser language, operating system, the state or country from which you accessed the products, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the site, error logs, and other similar information. We monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site, and to improve the content of our website to better match the interests of our website users.

Information from Other Sources:

DeckWise® may receive information about you from third parties, such as commerce partners, marketers, social network services, and other parties that we may use to supplement the information that we collect directly from you. If you connect to a third party network (such as a social network), platform, or service through the products, you are authorizing us to collect, store, and use in accordance with this Privacy Policy any and all information that you agreed the network or other third party platform could provide to DeckWise® based on your settings on the third party network or platform. Your agreement takes place when you connect with the third party network, platform, or service via our products, and/or when you connect with one of our applications through one of these services.

Anonymous or De-Identified Data:

We may collect data that is already in anonymized or de-identified form or we may manually anonymize and/or de-identify information collected by the products or via other means so that the information does not identify you. Our use and disclosure of aggregated and/or de-identified information is not subject to any restrictions under this Privacy Policy, and we may disclose it to others without limitation for any purpose.

3. Cookies and Similar Technologies

We do not use cookies.

4. Online Advertising and Analytics

Online Analytics

We may use third-party web analytics services on our products, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the Automatically-Collected Information section above to help us analyze how users use the products, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the products. We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to online marketing, as described in the following section.

Online Advertising

We do not serve third party advertisements to you while using www.DeckWise.com. However, we do work with website analytics and advertising partners, including Google, Adwords, Remarketing, Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook, to deliver DeckWise® advertisements on third party publisher websites - these partners may set cookies on your computer's web browser. These cookies allow our partners to recognize your computer so that the ad server can show you DeckWise® advertisements elsewhere on the Internet, and so that our analytics software can measure your engagement and interactions while using www.DeckWise.com. In this way, ad servers may compile anonymous, de-identified information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw our advertisements, whether or not you interacted with our advertisements and actions performed on subsequent visits to www.DeckWise.com. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you, and it allows DeckWise® to optimize the performance of our advertising campaigns and the usability of our website. In other words, we use analytics data in concert with data about our online ads that have been shown using the Google Display Network, or other online advertising networks. By doing so, we can understand how anonymous users interacted with our website after seeing our ads.

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and products that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our website for third party purposes, and that is why we provide the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out links below. However, we do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.

For more information about these advertising and analytics services and how to opt out, please see the “Your Choices” section below.

5. Uses of Information

DeckWise® may use the information it collects for various purposes, including but not limited to:

These web pages may be designed to look and feel just like www.DeckWise.com, but are actually hosted on a different domain. When we enter into co-branded partnerships we may at times share your name and email address in order for DeckWise® to communicate with you about DeckWise® related promotions, news, and updates via tools provided by our third party co-branded partner website. Information collected on third party co-branded webpages may not be covered under our Privacy Policy. All information collected on third party co-branded websites is owned and controlled by that website’s privacy policy.

Service Providers - We use third party service providers to offer or facilitate services on our behalf, such as a shipping company to fulfill orders, a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services, and an email service provider to send out emails on our behalf. When you order products from DeckWise®, we will share your information as necessary for such third party services providers to provide the applicable service to us or on our behalf. These third parties are prohibited from using any identifying information about you for promotional purposes.

Business Transactions - Information that we collect is considered a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or sale of some or all of our assets, your information may be disclosed or transferred to a third party acquirer in connection with the transaction.

Legal Compliance - We reserve the right to access and disclose your information when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to: (a) enforce legal rights and comply with the law; (b) comply with an order from a government entity or other competent authority, (c) prevent or address potential or actual injury or interference with our rights, property, operations or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage; (d) protect our rights, prevent fraud and/or comply with judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on DeckWise®.

Law Enforcement - We may be required to disclose your information to government or law enforcement officials in response to a lawful request by a public authority or if we have to do so to comply with a legal obligation, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We can also disclose your information in order to apply or enforce our terms and conditions or to respond to any claims, to protect our rights or the rights of a third party, to protect the safety of any person or to prevent or prevent any illegal activity (including for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction).

The COPPA Rule spells out what websites and their operators must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

DeckWise® does not specifically advertise, sell or market to children under the age of 13.

13. CAN SPAM Act
