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

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 gathers depends 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 fulfill 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.
