Privacy Policy

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for www.designships.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:

  • What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared
  • What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

When you visit the Designship web site, we capture your Internet provider’s domain name (e.g., ‘aol.com’), and the IP from which you connect to the Internet. We also capture the country from where the visit came, and the paths taken as you move from page to page (i.e., your “click stream” activity).

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about the apprenticeship programs, events, or changes to this privacy policy.

Browsing and the use of cookies and logs
The Designship℠ web site uses cookie technology as part of our web site’s statistical reporting. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web site that is saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. It holds information a site may need to personalize your experience (such as, rotating images on the home page). Cookies are also used to gather web site statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is downloaded, the Internet provider’s domain name and country of origin, and the addresses of sites visited immediately before, and after, coming to the Designship web site.

None of this, however, is associated with you as an individual, unless you have selected to opt-in to receive further information from us. The information provided by cookies and logs is measured anonymously and only in aggregate. Information from cookies lets us trace your “click stream” activity (meaning, the paths taken by visitors to our site as they move from page to page). Cookies do not capture your individual email address or any private information about you.

If you prefer, you can configure your browser to reject all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie and privacy preferences.) If cookies are disabled, certain features of the Designship web site may not function properly.

We also use standard web server log files to help us count visitors and evaluate our site’s technical capacity. This information tells us how many people visit the Designship℠ web site. We record information on site traffic, but not on individual visitors to our site.

Email, mailing lists, and other services
When you send us an e-mail, we use your e-mail address to thank you for your comment and/or reply to your question. We store your communication and our reply in case we correspond further. We may also contact you later as part of a satisfaction survey. Beyond these uses, we will not use your e-mail address to send you any unsolicited message or information. We also will not share it with, or sell it to, anyone else for such use, other than as specified in this policy.

When you request information or services, we will continue to provide them until you ask us to stop. You may “unsubscribe” (stop) these services by using the “unsubscribe” instructions provided on each e-mail and/or the web site where you signed up and/or as we otherwise provide), or until the information or service is no longer available.

We do not sell or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances.

Your Access to and Control Over Information
You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any
  • Change/correct any data we have about you
  • Ask us to delete any data we have about you
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data

We may periodically send you e-mail messages describing events, or programs at Designship. You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. Simply follow the instructions included in your email, or send a reply stating your request.

If you do not explicitly choose to receive informational emails, the only email messages you will receive from Designship will be a response to an email inquiry that you send us.

Security
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. The Designship web site uses firewalls and Secure Socket Layers for all personal data we collect from you. We also employ many different security techniques to protect personal data against loss, misuse, alteration, and unauthorized access. We cannot, however, guarantee perfect security of your personal information.
