Last Updated:  January 12, 2012

Introduction

  Fastdezine, Inc. (collectively "FDI" or "us" or "our" or "we") is the owner and operator of www.fastdezine.com  and any related sub-domains (the "Service").  This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy" or "Policy") applies to the Service in its entirety but does not apply to entities that FDI does not own or control.   FDI is committed to the privacy and protection of information provided to us by our users. This includes any information provided to us through the Service, including any information submitted to us through various forms and through other mechanisms.  By using the Service you are accepting the practices contained in this Policy.   The purpose of our Privacy Policy is to inform our users regarding the information that we collect, utilize, and share.  If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, or our privacy practices in general, please contact us using the contact information provided below:   Fastdezine, Inc. Privacy, c/o FDI Privacy Officer 2516 E Milmar Dr. Sarasota, FL 34237 USA (or) Email: privacy@fastdezine.com Phone: 941-730-4755   Information Collected   There are various types of information that FDI collects when you register with, interact with, or otherwise use the Service.  Some of this information is provided voluntarily by you and other information is provided through automated processes under FDI's control.

I. Information Provided By You

  In addition to personally identifiable information ("PII") provided during the FDI registration process, you may also provide us PII during the following representative classes of interactions:  
  • Requesting customer support and sending FDI similar communications;
  • Making payments to FDI for various Service offerings;
  • Signing up for FDI email alerts, newsletters, and similar special offers;
  • Responding to FDI surveys and other special information requests; and
  • Communicating with FDI regarding our compliance with applicable law.
  The above list is not exhaustive, but is merely representative of classes of interactions you may engage in with FDI, all of which are covered by this Policy.

II. Information Provided By Automated Processes

  FDI may automatically collect non-PII when you use the Service. FDI may use cookies, web beacons, log files and similar methods to collect non-PII.   A cookie is data stored in a small text file on your local access device that contains data about you. The information in the cookie is used to uniquely identify you and other users of the Service. The cookie may contain a token linked to our databases in order to provide you an enhanced feature set. It identifies a particular user at a particular point in time. You have the option of resetting your browser to reject cookies. If you choose to do so some Service functionality may not be available to you.   FDI may collect an assortment of non-PII during your use of the Service. For example, a TCP/IP ("IP") address does not uniquely identify an individual and as such is non-PII.  An IP address is a way to uniquely identify a computer.  FDI may collect IP addresses in order to analyze Service usage patterns and trends. FDI may collect, in addition to IP addresses, browser type and other related information for similar purposes. FDI may collect non-PII status information, including but not limited to, whether you opened email or other communications sent from us to you via the Service.   FDI may use web beacons to enable communications with third parties.   A web beacon is a small image in an HTML page with all dimensions set to one (1) pixel.  Because of its insignificant size, it is not visible. It is used to pass certain non-PII anonymously to third-party sites, usually advertisers.   FDI reserves the right to adopt alternative methods for collecting non-PII consistent with the provisions of this Policy.

III. Implications Regarding Collected Information

  Your use of the Service implies your consent to have your PII and non-PII (i.e. any data provided by you to FDI via the Service or through other mechanisms) stored, transferred and processed within the United States, or in any other country in which FDI or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities. By providing us with your personal information and using our Service you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country, at FDI's sole discretion.   Control and Access to Information   FDI respects both the need to control PII and our users' need for sharing it with us. FDI is diligent in ensuring that it has taken all appropriate administrative and technical measures to prevent the unauthorized or unlawful use of your PII, and to prevent any accidental loss, destruction, or damage to such information.

Use of Information

  FDI is the sole owner of the information collected on the Service and will not sell, rent or share the information collected in a manner that differs from what is disclosed in this Policy. FDI collects this information in order to: 1) accomplish the objectives of the Service; 2) provide you with a high quality user experience on the Service; 3) offer you a personalized feature set on the Service; and 4) to improve the Service. 

Sharing of Information

  PII provided by you will not be shared with third parties, without your permission, for any purpose other than those enumerated below.  FDI, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to share with third parties aggregated non-PII for the purpose of compiling information that is relevant to our business interests. FDI, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to disclose any information that it obtains through the Service to appropriate governmental or regulatory authorities or governmental agencies, if required by law.  FDI, at its sole discretion, may share any information collected, stored and processed, if it has a good faith belief that to do so is reasonably necessary to (1) enforce our Terms of Use; (2) detect, investigate and otherwise address fraud, security or technical breaches or related matters; or (3) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of FDI, its users, or the public at large, as required or permitted by law.   FDI shares transaction information with our third party payment processor ("Payment Processor") when you make purchases on the Service. The information shared with our Payment Processor is limited to the information required by our Payment Processor to complete the payment transaction. FDI does not capture or store the financial information provided by you to our Payment Processor. FDI only stores the results of said transactions as provided via notifications from our Payment Processor to us upon the completion of a payment transaction.   In addition to disclosing information to our Payment Processor, FDI may disclose your personal information to other third-party service providers ("Providers") who perform services on our behalf. Examples of such Providers may include, but are not limited to, data storage and web hosting companies, as well as consultants we may engage for various reasons. FDI requires Providers to use and protect your personal information consistent with the provisions of this Policy.  

Security of Information

  Any information sent by you to FDI through Internet e-mail or through the Service may not be secure and is therefore done on a non-confidential basis and at your own risk.  Once such information is received, FDI takes appropriate security measures to prevent its unauthorized use, alteration, disclosure or destruction. These measures include periodic review of our internal processes, and benchmarking of same with industry best practices.  Access to PII is restricted to FDI employees, contractors, and agents on a need to know basis.  Such individuals are generally bound by confidentiality agreements and may be subject to termination and criminal prosecution should they fail to comply as required by said agreements.

Data integrity

  FDI processes PII only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with the provisions in this Policy.  Reasonable steps are taken to ensure the quality of the PII that FDI collects, processes, and stores.   FDI depends on its users to keep their PII current and accurate.  FDI conducts periodic reviews to ensure that only the PII required by the Service is captured and used consistent with the provisions of this Policy. The maintenance of data integrity is a joint collaborative effort between FDI and our users.   FDI may delete data, from time to time, upon the request of an individual user.  FDI requires that a user present proper credentials for identification before honoring all such requests.  Good faith attempts are made to work with individual users regarding data related issues.  FDI reserves the right to refuse such requests when they prove unduly burdensome and/or are impractical. FDI will not delete data required to be kept by applicable law or data otherwise required by FDI for legitimate business reasons.

Choices Regarding PII

  Should FDI decide to use PII other than for the purpose originally collected, FDI will do so only with your consent. You will be given the opportunity to opt out of any such use.  Should FDI become involved in a sale, acquisition, or any form of transfer of some or all of its assets, then FDI will provide notice to you before your PII is subject to a new or different privacy policy.   You always have the option of contacting FDI should you have questions regarding your PII. Please contact FDI using the contact information provided.

Protecting Children

  FDI restricts the use of our Service to individuals of legal age and above.  FDI does not knowingly collect or solicit PII from anyone under the age of 13, with or without parental consent. If you are a parent of a child under the age of 13 and you suspect that your child has registered on the Service, then you can request that any information provided be immediately deleted from FDI's database(s) by sending an email to: privacy@fastdezine.com, or by contacting FDI via the contact information provided. FDI will promptly respond to any such notification, and upon verification, immediately delete the information in question.   No child under the age of 13 should attempt to register on the Service, or otherwise provide FDI any PII including name, email address, phone number, physical address or any similar information.  The protection of children on the Internet is an important public policy concern-one that FDI is committed to supporting.  

Links

  The Service may contain hyperlinks to third-party websites that may collect or solicit information.   Our Privacy Policy does not cover information collected or solicited by these third-party websites.  FDI is not responsible for the privacy practices of such sites.  FDI users are encouraged to pay attention when they leave the Service and to read the respective privacy policies of each website that collects personally identifiable information. This Policy only applies to information provided by you to FDI via the Service or through other mechanisms.

Enforcement

  Because we are committed to protecting our users' PII, FDI conducts periodic reviews of our internal processes to ensure that we remain in compliance with this Policy.  We will cooperate with the appropriate authorities to resolve any user complaints regarding the transfer of PII. FDI will initially try to resolve the complaint with the individual user. Formal complaints should be sent to FDI using the contact information provided.  

Policy Changes

  In the future, we may make changes to our Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our privacy practices and/or changes to the Service.  FDI's goal is to keep our users aware of what information we collect, use, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. When changes are made to this Policy the "last updated date" will be modified accordingly. If changes are made to our Privacy Policy then FDI will be provide notification on our Website. In addition, further notification will be provided to users that have registered on the Service.
