Message Digital Design is the sole owner of the information collected on the Message website. We collect information from our users at several different points on our website.
We request information from the user on our contact form. A user must provide contact information (name and email address). It is optional for the user to provide additional information for example, about the nature of their business and their job title. This information helps us to deal with the enquiry appropriately.
In order to gain access to the Client area of the site, users will be required to register. During registration a user must supply a name and email address, and a username and password. This information is required to ensure that only clients can access information about their own projects.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Cookies are not linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. These can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.
Cookies will be used to personalise content for specific users. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. See the "Profile" section.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We may send all new participating clients a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established clients will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may opt-out of these communications. Please see our Choice and Opt-out section.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and about issues relating to their account. We reply via email or phone.
Message does not pass on or sell information about our customers to any other business or organization. The only exception to this is where we are legally obliged to do so to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
In the event Message Digital Design Ltd goes through a business transition users will be notified via a prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information.
