Your privacy is critically important to us. At Design Mentors we have a few fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Design Mentors Inc. (Design Mentors) operates designmentors.org and app.designmentors.org. It is Design Mentor's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Design Mentors 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. Design Mentor's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Design Mentor’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Design Mentors may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Design Mentors also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Design Mentors does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to Design Mentors websites choose to interact with Design Mentors in ways that require Design Mentors to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Design Mentors gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up account at app.designmentors.org to provide a username and email address. Design Mentors collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitors interaction with Design Mentors. Design Mentors 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.
Design Mentors may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Design Mentors may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Design Mentors does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Design Mentors 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 Design Mentors behalf or to provide services available at Design Mentors 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 Design Mentors websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Design Mentors 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, Design Mentors discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Design Mentors believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Design Mentors, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Design Mentors website and have supplied your email address, Design Mentors may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with whats going on with Design Mentors and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. Design Mentors takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
