Deme In the Mirror (“ITM”, “we”, or “us”) is committed to integrity and the protection of your privacy.  This Privacy Policy is provided to inform you of the ways ITM collects and uses your personal information.   

By providing your information, you agree to your personal information being processed in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND RECEIVE

Automatically-Collected Information: 

When any visitor visits ITM, non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available are collected. This includes things such as your operating system type, browser type, language preference, type of computer, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.  This data is collected in aggregate for the purpose of understanding how visitors interact with and use this website. From time to time, ITM may publish parts of this information in aggregate as part of reporting on trends in the usage of this website.

Information You Voluntarily Submit to the Website:

Certain visitors to this website choose to interact in ways that require ITM to gather personal data. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction.  ITM may collect personal information from you such as your name or email address. For example, you may voluntarily submit information to the Website by leaving a comment, subscribing to receive blog notifications, or submitting a contact form.

In each case, ITM collects only the information that is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. ITM does not disclose personal data other than described below. Furthermore, visitors can always refuse to supply personal information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities on this website.

HOW WE USE DATA COLLECTED

ITM uses this data in order to effectively further its operating services.  More specifically:

  • We use your personal, demographic and profile data to enhance your experience on the site and to enable us to present content we think you might be interested in.
  • We use your contact information to communicate with you by responding to requests, comments and questions. We may also send you other administrative emails, messages and other communications related to any services you have purchased.
  • We will use your email address to send you marketing and promotional emails when permission has been granted for that.
  • We may also use your personal, demographic and profile data to improve our site, for statistical analysis, for marketing and promotional purposes, and for editorial or feedback purposes.
  • As required by applicable law, legal process or regulation.
  • To investigate or prevent security issues and abuse of our service.

SECURITY

We take security of your data very seriously. We take all reasonable action to protect from loss, misuse and unauthorized access or disclosure. This includes:

  • Employing secure protocol (SSL) across our entire site so that all interactions with our website are secure.
  • Restricting access to personal information to ITM administrators who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
  • Not storing sensitive data (such as credit card information) on our servers, but instead relying on trusted third parties to secure this data.
  • Doing due diligence with third party providers (see Disclosure to Third Parties below) to ensure they have a secure environment.

Given the nature of communications and information processing technology, ITM cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others.

DATA RETENTION

ITM will retain user data as spelled out here unless otherwise requested by the customer.  When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.

  • Aggregate data not personally identifiable is retained in logs.
  • Customer data is retained for as long as necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.
  • Email subscriber information is retained even after you choose to unsubscribe. Unsubscribed emails are deleted in batches roughly every 60-90 days.

DISCLOSURE OF DATA TO THIRD PARTIES

This section describes how information is disclosed to third parties.

  • We never rent or sell customer information or email subscriber information to any third parties.
  • Additionally, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.  Additional information on the service providers used is found below.
  • If required by applicable law, regulation or legal process, we may disclose information.
  • If necessary to enforce security, enforce an agreement, prevent fraud or theft, we may disclose information to third parties.
  • We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorize us to share your information.

Below is a list of third party service providers that ITM uses in order to provide necessary infrastructure. Prior to engaging any third party service, we perform due diligence to evaluate their privacy policy, security and confidentiality practices to ensure they are meeting their obligations.

  • Site Ground – web hosting service
  • Google Analytics – this service tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.

At this time, your personal information is not shared with any other third-party applications. This list may be amended from time to time in the Website’s sole discretion.
