Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how Steel Design Solutions collects, uses, shares and protects the personal information that we collect through our website, steeldesignsolutions.com. By using this site, you agree to be bound by the terms of this privacy policy.

Information We Collect

Personal Information You Provide

You do not need to provide us with any personal information if you simply want to browse through this website and learn more about our products. However, we do ask you to provide us with personal information when you subscribe to our mailing list, fill out a form, or place an order on our site. This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number.

Steel Design Solutions does not collect or store your payment information. Instead, we use PayPal to process all payments for all orders placed via our website. The payment information that you provide will be collected and stored by PayPal subject to its privacy policy and terms of use.

Non-Personal Information

We may use a variety of methods, including “cookies,” to collect non-personal information about visitors to our website. Cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories. They are used by web developers to help users navigate their websites efficiently and perform certain functions.

Usage of Cookies

Steel Design uses cookies on our website to gather information about page visits (e.g. “performance cookies.”) This information is anonymous and is only used internally to help us gauge page popularity, analyze traffic patterns on our website, and guide improvements to our website.

Analytics Tools

We utilize third-party analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, to automatically collect non-personal information about visitors to our website. This information includes, but is not limited to, how often a user visits this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information gathered by Google Analytics only to improve this site.

Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on a user’s web browser to identify them as a unique user the next time they visit our website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about user visits to our website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. Users can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing them on return visits to the our website by disabling cookies on their browser.

Google Analytics employs cookies to define user sessions, which allows for the collection of data about how visitors are using our website. Google Analytics uses only first-party cookies for data analysis. This means that the cookies are linked to a specific website domain, and Google Analytics will only use that cookie data for statistical analysis related to a user’s browsing behavior on a specific website. According to Google, the data collected cannot be altered or retrieved by services from other domains. If a user chooses, they can opt out by turning off cookies in the preferences settings of their web browser.

Additionally, we may permit certain third party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to you based on your use of our website and to otherwise collect and use data about your use of our website. For more information, please see the “Advertising” section below.

Other Tracking Methods

We utilize other tracking methods to monitor performance of email communications sent to users subscribed to our mailing list. We use a tracking pixel in the emails to track “opens” and encoded URLs to track the clicks received by links within our communications. This information is used internally only to help us deliver relevant communication and is not shared with any third parties.

How We Use Your Information

We use personal and non-personal information gathered on our website to establish and enhance our relationship with our customers and/or website users.

Communication

We use personal information you supply to provide you with customer support, process transactions, respond to requests, send newsletters and updates, send special offers and advertisements, and seek your opinions and feedback.

Optimization

We use your information, both personal and non-personal, to operate, provide, improve, and maintain our website, to develop new products and services, to prevent abuse and fraud, to personalize and display advertisements and other content for you, and for other administrative and internal business purposes.

Advertising

We use your information, behavioral metrics, geo-location data, demographic data and marketing preferences to personalize and display advertisements and other content for you.

We also may permit certain third party companies, such as Google AdWords, to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to users and to collect and use other data about user activities on our website. These companies may deliver ads that might also place cookies and otherwise track user behavior. These companies may use information about user behavior in order to provide customized advertisements across various services and products. In the course of providing these services, products or placing advertisements, these third party companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer, and may record information to these cookies based upon your activities on our website and on third party websites.

You may view a list of other third party service providers who collect information, and/or opt-out of such collection of information about you, by visiting networkadvertising.org/choices or aboutads.info/choices. Please note this does not opt you out of being delivered advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

How We Protect Your Information

We use commercially reasonable means to protect the integrity of our website and limit access to your personally identifiable information. We also limit the amount of information that we collect to the information we believe is minimally necessary for us to provide our service.

If you choose to provide personal information about yourself, Steel Design Solutions will use this information only to communicate directly with you. We will not sell, rent or otherwise disclose that information to third parties unless such disclosure is necessary for the purposes set forth in this privacy policy, by law, or a policy or notice contained or associated with a specific Site(s) and/or Service(s).

Updates To Our Privacy Policy

We may need to update our Privacy Policy from time to time. Changes will be posted to this page and the effective date of the terms will reflect the date of the changes.
