By accessing the Beacon Design (“Beacon Design”) website, www.beacondesign.com, you agree to the following terms and policies. If you do not agree to the following terms and policies, please notice that you are not permitted to use the site.
Information Collection and Use
In order to use certain functions of this Web site, you may be required to first complete a registration form and/or create a user name and password. During registration, you may be required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest.
Beacon Design is the sole owner of the information collected on www.beacondesign.staging.wpengine.com. Beacon Design may collect personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address). We use this information to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
Surveys or Contests
From time-to-time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and, therefore, you have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic, to provide you with relevant and timely information, new products and offerings suited to your needs.
We may use Zoomerang or Constant Contact, third-party service providers, to conduct these surveys or contests; those companies are prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. Beacon Design stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
Your friend may contact us at [email protected] to request that we remove this information from our database.
Uses of Information

Communications from the Site
Special Offers and Updates
We will occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, and promotions. You can sign up for these emails from us on our registration page. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Choice and Opt-out.”
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe. Please see the “Choice and Opt-out” section.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us to use certain features of the site, we may send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third party sources to create a “profile” of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information, and/or your purchasing history to information in the profile in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to improve the content of the site for you. We do not share your profile with other third parties. From time to time, we purchase marketing data from third parties and add it to our existing user database to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested. To enrich our profiles of individual customers, we tie this information to the personally identifiable information they have provided to us.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable):
We DO NOT link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.
Personally identifiable information:
We DO NOT share personally identifiable information with third parties.
We use other third parties to provide certain services on our site, such as Figmint for web development, Zoomerang for surveys, and Constant Contact for email & survey. When you sign up for these types of services, we will share only information that is necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site
We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes when we ask for this information. For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at [email protected].
You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by emailing our Customer Support at [email protected] or by contacting us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us at [email protected]
In the event Beacon Design goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.
