Privacy Statement

Privacy Policy & Legal Statement

1. Privacy Policy

Wavdesign is serious about protecting your privacy online. I treat your data as if it was my own. The policy listed below explains how I do this.

Q. What personal information does ‘ store ?

A. If you make an enquiry or signup to post an entry in the blog, then I store your email address and message/post in a database for my contact purposes only. If you signup as a member of the pages or on the .com blog then a minimum set of details are stored in the database which lies behind these facilities. Should you request for me to build a website for you then from time to time I will ask you for further information relating to the required features of the site. Wavdesign uses cookies to remember your personal details for when you visit the site. For an explanation, see the section on cookies below.

2. Use of Cookies.

You’re probably aware that ‘Cookies’ are small files which many web sites transfer to your hard disk in order to identify you as a unique user. These (generally non-malicious pieces of code) can inform the web site of which pages you visit and your site preferences, which enable web sites to provide you with a more personalized service. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to warn you before accepting them but most web users are happy to allow cookies to be used. Wavdesign uses cookies, but most parts of this website can be accessed even if your cookies are turned off. At present there are no parts of the site which you cannot access if your cookies are turned off other than the ‘signup’ and ‘login’ pages. Please note that the ability to style pages or increase text size (also cookie based) will also not be available.

3. Supplied Information.

Any information you supply is kept private at all times. I have listed below a number of questions which have arisen regarding personal details. Please contact me if you need more information on any aspect of this.

Q. How do I use supplied information?

A. I use any information you supply to help me understand your needs for the product you have requested (e.g. a website, a logo design or a menu system). By using this information I will be able to use the knowledge gained to improve the service for others.

I do not send direct ‘mail shots’ to customers or non customers. If I need to contact a client I will send an e-mail or use the telephone (this only on the agreement of the client).

Q. Do I share information with other companies or agencies?

A. Rest assured that I never pass on or attempt to offer customer personal information to others (for personal or financial gain). I never share customer personal information which (I may) keep on file. I treat this information as if it were my own personal details. However I may request that I use say a website or advertisement I created for you as a means to advertise my services. I will always seek permission to do this and you would be (of course) free to refuse this if you did not wish to be referenced on the Wavdesign web pages.

A number of other web sites have links out of the Wavdesign site. If you do follow links to these external sites, then you may well be exposed to the collection of personal information from them. Such sites are obviously not within my control and are not therefore covered by this privacy statement.

If I believe that your use of the site is unlawful or damaging to others, |I reserve the right to disclose the information I have obtained through the site about you to the extent that it is reasonably necessary in our opinion to prevent, remedy or take action in relation to such conduct.

4. Security

All personal and credit card information is encoded using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology before being sent over the Internet. To protect your data further, your credit card information (where used) is always stored in encrypted form in a remote database which is not connected to the web site database (i.e. it is not connected to the Internet). Credit card transactions are issued a digital certificate, ensuring that your data can only be read by our transaction system as long as your browser shows its secure mode symbol (such as a key or closed lock).

To make the most of the security on our site, we recommend using Firefox, Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 or higher). Each of these browser types enables you to use the SSL technology. We also recommend setting your browser preferences to accept cookies and also to enable JavaScript.
