Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At YZ DESIGNS we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

In our website products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

YZ DESIGNS Limited (“YZ DESIGNS”) operates other websites including yzdesigns.net and websitedesign-bristol.co.uk. It is YZ DESIGNS’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, YZ DESIGNS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. YZ DESIGNS’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how YZ DESIGNS’s visitors use its website. From time to time, YZ DESIGNS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

YZ DESIGNS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on YZ DESIGNS sites. YZ DESIGNS only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to YZ DESIGNS’s websites choose to interact with YZ DESIGNS in ways that require YZ DESIGNS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that YZ DESIGNS gather depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a site at YZ DESIGNS to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with YZ DESIGNS – by purchasing services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, YZ DESIGNS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with YZ DESIGNS. YZ DESIGNS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

YZ DESIGNS may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, YZ DESIGNS may monitor the most popular sites on the YZ DESIGNS site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. YZ DESIGNS may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, YZ DESIGNS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Website updates and security

YZ DESIGNS will help to run and maintain your website as per agreement set out prior to launching the site. Any third-party theme files used will be reliant on the relevant theme author providing updates for that theme and YZ DESIGNS will not be held responsible for any future updates. We will offer alternative solutions in the form of security firewalls and theme upgrades at an additional cost to be agreed prior to work being carried out. All website theme and plugin updates are down to the theme author and YZ DESIGNS will not be accountable to provide further updates independently should the theme/plugin is discontinued. Any theme/plugin deemed to be a security breach or shown to be susceptible to a hack will be removed asap and YZ DESIGNS will not be accountable or liable for any loss of data or information. All security, hacking repairs or theme development will be costed accordingly at a cost to the client.

YZ DESIGNS will NOT be held responsible for ANY security breaches. Websites are built using the latest in security measures to assure your site is protected, including the use of third-party plugins. We are also able to provide regular site back-ups, but will not be held responsible for any loss of website content due to security.

YZ DESIGNS will NOT be held responsible for ANY Hacking attempts, malware and security breaches. YZ DESIGNS will offer to repair and clean up any malware or malicious scripts at an agreed additional cost to the offending account owner.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using YZ DESIGNS’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. YZ DESIGNS will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, YZ DESIGNS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when YZ DESIGNS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of YZ DESIGNS, third parties or the public at large.
