Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") explains how Office Designs, LLC ("Office Designs," "we" or "us" ) collects and processes the information that you share when you use this website (the "Site") through a computer or mobile device (collectively, the "Service").

Before providing your information to the Service, please read this Privacy Policy. By using or accessing the Service, you accept the terms and conditions set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you do not want us to collect and process information about you, please do not submit it and do not access or use the Service.

We do not intentionally collect any Personally Identifiable Information from children under thirteen (13) years of age. Where any such information is inadvertently collected, we will delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe a child under thirteen (13) years of age has provided us with Personally Identifiable Information, please contact us.

Information We Collect

We collect certain information that you share with us, including:

  • Personally Identifiable Information: "Personally Identifiable Information" or "PII" is information that can personally identify you, such as your name, email address and telephone number. We may retain your Personally Identifiable Information as reasonably required to serve you and operate the Service. What specific Personally Identifiable Information we collect depends on how you use the Service. Providing your Personally Identifiable Information to us is your choice. Be aware, however, that if you choose not to provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information, you may not be able to take advantage of certain features of the Service.
  • General Information: When you visit the Service, we may collect various categories of general non-Personally Identifiable Information ("General Information"). General Information includes browser information, operating system information, device information, TCP-IP address and the date, time, length of stay and specific pages accessed during your visits to the Service.

Registering for the Service or Creating an Account

If you register to use the Service or create an account we may collect Personally Identifiable Information including your name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number and other information that you provide to us.

You may review, update, or modify your account information, including profile and contact information, at any time by logging into your Office Designs account.

Online Identification Tools

We may use your IP address to help identify and solve issues with our server and provide you with a better web browsing experience. We may use your IP address to identify you, your shopping cart and wish list and to collect General Information.

We use cookies to keep track of your items in your cart and wish list and for other purposes such as personalizing the Service. A cookie is a small file stored by your internet browser on your computer. By default, your web browser is set up to accept cookies. If you change the settings to reject cookies, the Service will not be able to recognize your account, cart, wish list or to personalize the content that you see.

Do Not Track Signals

Some web browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" ("DNT") or similar feature that signals to a website that a user does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. Thus, the Site may not recognize or respond to DNT signals.

Third Party Features

The Service also may include social media buttons and widgets, such as the Facebook or Twitter "Like" button. Clicking on these buttons will take you to third party website. These third party websites may collect and display your Personally Identifiable Information, your IP address and the page you are visiting on the Service and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These features may be hosted by a third party and your interactions with them are governed by the privacy policy of the third party that provides the feature.

Third-Party Links

We may provide links to third-party websites that we do not own or control, for example, to social media websites and websites operated by manufacturers of products we sell. We are not responsible for the information collection practices of any website that we do not own or control. The privacy practices of third-party websites are solely their responsibility.

How Your Personally Identifiable Information is Used, Processed and Disclosed

Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, Office Designs does not rent, sell, trade or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties without your prior consent. Office Designs may, however, use, process and disclose Personally Identifiable Information to:

  1. send information to customers about orders;
  2. fulfill your orders;
  3. process and collect your payments;
  4. send you promotional marketing material about Office Designs' company and partners;
  5. customize, analyze, adjust and improve the Service to better meet your needs;
  6. enforce Office Designs' agreements with you;
  7. provide you with important administrative information regarding the Service, such as changes to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use, and other policies;
  8. prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities; and
  9. comply with potential requests of law enforcement or data protection agencies.

We may combine and/or link General Information with Personally Identifiable Information.

Information about customers is considered an asset of Office Designs and, as such, may be transferred to another company as part of a merger or acquisition.

We may use your General Information and Personally Identifiable Information that has been stripped of personally identifiable information to prepare anonymized, aggregated data about our users ("Anonymized Data"). We may provide third parties with Anonymized Data in describing the Service to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties, and for any other lawful purposes. As communicated to third parties, the Anonymized Data will not include any information permitting the recipient to identify, locate or contact you.

Third Party Service Providers

Office Designs employs other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, providing search results and links, processing credit card payments, and other services. These third-party service providers have access to Personally Identifiable Information needed to perform their functions but are contractually obligated not to use it for any other purpose.

To request this information, please contact us.

Visitors from Outside of the United States

The Service is hosted in the United States. The Site is intended for users who reside in the United States of America. Office Designs only sells product to addresses in the United States. If you are visiting the Service from outside the United States, your information may be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable US laws.

We have instituted reasonable safeguards to help ensure that information collected on the Site is secure. We also take reasonable steps to ensure that third parties who work with us to make the Site available to you agree to protect Personally Identifiable Information that they must access in order to serve you and to honor your preferences about contacts you receive.

When you send or otherwise transmit your sensitive information (such as your credit card number) to or though the Site, your sensitive information is encrypted and protected with SSL, the current industry-standard encryption protocol. We do not store your credit card information. When you are on an SSL-protected page, a picture of a closed lock appears at the bottom or top of some web browsers. Alternatively, check the URL or address of the page. Secure SSL-encrypted pages have URLs that start with "https://" instead of "http://".

Nonetheless, it is possible for third parties to access information despite our efforts. Without limiting the terms of our Terms of Use or this Privacy Policy, we do not guarantee that your use of the Site and/or information provided by you will be private or secure and we are not responsible or liable to you for any lack of privacy or security you may experience. You are fully responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the Site. You also understand that any information provided by you or collected by us or our agents in connection with your use of the Site will be used in the manner described in our Terms of Use. Please do not use the Site if you do not agree to the terms and conditions described in this Information Security section.

Office Designs' Copyright Policy

This Copyright Policy describes Office Designs' policy of prohibiting any information or materials that violate another party's intellectual property rights from appearing on the Site.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for a copyright owner who believes that material appearing on the Internet infringes his, her or its rights under U.S. copyright law. Office Designs complies with the DMCA by responding to notices and counter-notices that meet the then-current DMCA requirements. Current DMCA requirements may be found at http://www.copyright.gov/.

Notification of Alleged Copyright Infringement

If you have a good faith belief that material appearing on the Site infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Office Designs a written notification pursuant to the DMCA (a "DMCA Notice"). Your DMCA Notice should be sent to our Copyright Agent (identified below), contain all of the information listed below (and as further set forth in 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3)) and request that the material be removed or that access to it be blocked. Your DMCA Notice must contain:

1. Identification in sufficient detail of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed. If multiple copyrighted works on the Site are covered by a single notification, you may provide a representative list of such works on the Site; however, the representative list must contain sufficient detail for each of the copyrighted works so that we can identify them;
2. Identification of the URL or other specific location on the Site that contains the material that you claim to be infringing your copyright. You must provide us with reasonably sufficient information to enable us to locate the alleged infringing material and comply with your request to remove or deny access to the material;
3. Your name, address, telephone number and email address (if available);
4. The electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or a person authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf;
5. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material on the Site as you have described in the DMCA Notice is not authorized by the copyright owner or its agent or the law; and
6. A statement that you swear under penalty of perjury that the information contained in your notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

You must submit any notification of an alleged copyright infringement to Office Designs' Copyright Agent by mail or email as set forth below:

Office Designs Copyright Agent
Attn: Legal
722 Landwehr Road
Northbrook, IL 60062
Email:
customercare@officedesigns.com (Re: "Office Designs DMCA Notice")

If you fail to comply with all of the above requirements, your DMCA Notice will not be valid. Please note that you may be liable for damages, including court costs and attorneys' fees, if you materially misrepresent that materials on the Site are infringing a copyright.

Counter Notification

If you believe in good faith that your own copyrighted material has been removed from the Site as a result of mistake or misidentification, you may submit a written counter notification letter to Office Designs' Copyright Agent pursuant to Sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. To be an effective counter notification under the DMCA, your written correspondence must include substantially the following:

1. Identification of the material that has been removed or disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
2. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court in which your address is located or the federal district court for Northbrook, Illinois if your address is outside the United States;
3. A statement that you will accept service of process from the party that filed the notification of alleged copyright infringement or the party's agent;
4. Your name, address and telephone number;
5. A statement that you swear under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material in question was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled, or that the material identified by the complaining party has been removed or disabled at the URL or web location and will no longer be shown or accessible; and
6. Your physical or electronic signature.

You may submit your counter notification to Office Designs' Copyright Agent by mail or email as set forth below:

Office Designs Copyright Agent
Attn: Legal Department
722 Landwehr Road
Northbrook, IL 60062
Email:
customercare@officedesigns.com (please reference "Office Designs DMCA Notice")

Upon receipt of a counter notice, Office Designs' Copyright Agent may send a copy of it to the original complaining party informing that party that Office Designs may replace the removed content or cease disabling it. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against Office Designs, the removed content may be replaced or access to it restored by Office Designs.

You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the above requirements, your DMCA counter notification will not be valid. Please note that if you materially misrepresent that the disabled or removed content was removed by mistake or misidentification, you may be liable for damages, including costs and attorneys' fees.
