PRIVACY POLICY

SmartSign knows that your privacy matters to you, and so we have established this privacy policy to let you know how we use your information. Our privacy policy is also subject to our Terms and Conditions.

1. Information we collect

We do not collect personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. If during your visit to one of our websites you complete a form, send an e-mail, or perform some other transaction, this website may collect your name, company name, business address, business e-mail address, business phone number, business fax number, job title, industry sector, and/or credit card information.

To protect credit card numbers, we outsource this information to a certified payment processor via a hosted payment page on our website in accordance with PCI DSS regulations. The provider returns the credit card number to us as a token. We do not see, process or store customers' raw credit card information in any of our systems or databases. We are PCI compliant and attest to such via an annual SAQ-D and quarterly vulnerability scans performed by and attested to by an outside agency.

Please note that there are instances where we share your volunteered information with third parties in order to fulfill your request.

We, like many companies that provide products and services to customers, may employ other companies and individuals to perform specific functions on our behalf. Examples include, but are not limited to: manufacturing and/or fulfilling orders; delivery of packages, mail, and e-mail; address hygiene; credit card processing services; research that improves the quality of services or offers provided to you, including customer satisfaction surveys; or performing a credit check as part of your order. These providers have access to the information that they require to perform their functions but are strictly forbidden from using it for any other purposes. You may, however, "opt-out" of this use of your volunteered information at any time, but doing so may impair our ability to provide you with proper service and to process your orders.

This site also uses cookies. Cookies are small data files stored on your computer, and most browsers are set up to accept cookies by default. Cookies do not track any personal information, but we may use them to identify you as a past customer, for instance. We use third-party cookies, like Google, for analytics, and those third-party cookies may be placed on your computer. You can opt out of advertising cookies by clicking this link. We do not respond to web browser “do not track” signals. We do not collect data on your online activities over time across third-party websites.

Our servers automatically log some information that comes from you, like which browser you are using, your IP address, what IP address you came to SmartSign from, and how you navigate within our site. This information cannot be used to identify you personally, but it helps us to determine if someone else is accessing your account without authorization.

We also track your usage history, such as your search history and which content you have accessed. This history lets you easily backtrack to a location you’ve previously visited.

If you receive emails from us, we use web beacon technology to track whether you have clicked on individual email advertisements.

2. How we use your information

We may use your personal information to personalize your profile, maintain the SmartSign family of sites, make improvements to the site, and to communicate with you. We will share your personal information with third parties only under the following conditions:

  • To provide products or services you have requested. Among other things, this includes order confirmations, invoices, and customer service communications.
  • For marketing purposes, like to send you catalogues or marketing emails. SmartSign may share your name and physical address but no other personally identifiable information with our third-party affiliates, to distribute third-party catalogues that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of this sharing on the My Account page.
  • When disclosure is required by law. For instance, we will disclose your personal information if we receive a court order instructing us to turn over data. We do not give your data to law enforcement unless they present us with a court order.
  • To investigate suspected fraud, illegal activities, threats to any person, or violations of our Terms and Conditions.
  • When we hire contractors to perform services for us. This includes companies that do payment processing, order fulfilment, catalogue printing and marketing for us. For instance, if you check out through PayPal or Amazon, we submit your personal information to them.
  • If you donate to any of SmartSign’s charity partners at checkout, SmartSign will give that charity partner your contact information if you choose to receive SmartSign emails.
  • If SmartSign is purchased by or merged with another company. We will provide you with reasonable notice if that happens by updating this page.
3. Control of your information

If you do not want to us to share your personal information with our partners, receive catalogues, or marketing emails, you can unsubscribe at the My Account page. Even if you do opt out, we may still use your personal information to communicate with you regarding your account, fulfil your orders, or if required by law.

To deactivate your account, please email [email protected] or call us at 800-952-1457.

4. Your rights

You have the choice to share your personal data with us. You also have the right to request us to rectify or erase your personal data as far as this does not interfere with the execution of any contractual obligations. You acknowledge that a refusal to share data or a request to erase these data will make the delivery of certain services and/or products impossible.
