Personal Information We Collect
When you interact with us, we collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide. For example, when you sign up for our newsletter or other e-mail lists or otherwise use certain aspects of our Services, we may ask you to provide information such as your name and e-mail address. In addition to collecting information on our Site, we may collect information from you when you communicate with us via e-mail. You can choose not to provide any information that is requested of you by us. However, this may limit your ability to use the Services.
Non-Personal Information Automatically Collected
We and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, now and hereafter devised, that automatically record certain usage information. When accessing our Site, Squarespace may log your IP address, access URL, time of access, geographic location, browser type, and referral URL in order to provide us with internal information regarding Site traffic statistics. This information may also be used to identify users who are using our Site for spam or other activity that is deemed in conflict with our Terms of Service. Otherwise, this information is used in the aggregate, and is never linked back to any Personal Information.
Cookies and Other Technologies We Use
Squarespace and our other service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means in connection with our Site and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, track the actions of users, to determine the success of marketing campaigns and to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. This information is collected anonymously, in a manner that does not personally identify you.
Our Use of Your Information
We mainly use Your Information, either alone or in combination with other information, so that we can provide, enhance and personalize our Services and related content.
Your Information is used and disclosed for, but is not limited to, the following purposes:
• to provide you with the best user experience possible;
• to respond to your questions and comments;
• to communicate with you regarding updates to our Services;
• to send you our newsletter or other subscriptions;
• to help us develop, customize, deliver, support and improve our Services and content;
• to protect the rights or property of Pixel Fondue or our users, and prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities;
• for distribution to third-party service providers that provide services to us;
• to protect the security of our Services and business;
• to conduct system administration and system troubleshooting and to diagnose or fix technology problems;
• for marketing and advertising purposes;
• for our internal purposes (such as auditing and data analysis);
• otherwise, as disclosed to you at the point of collection; and
• to monitor and analyze use of the Services and for the technical administration of the Services.
We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users or sources to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality of our Services, and to analyze and understand how our Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically. After you terminate your use of the Services, we may continue to use your Non-Personal Information for statistical purposes or other purposes as we see fit. Please note that we cannot guarantee that Non-Personal Information will not identify you as we cannot guarantee that others with access to Non-Personal Information may not have knowledge sufficient to identify you.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We will not rent or sell your Personal Information to others. Non-Personal Information may be provided to third parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
