Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how WPDesignHub.com uses and protects any information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. If you provide us with personal information through WPDesignHub.com, you can be assured that it will only be used following this privacy statement.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, WPDesignHub.com 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. WPDesignHub.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WPDesignHub.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, WPDesignHub.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

WPDesignHub.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. WPDesignHub.com does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to WPDesignHub.com choose to interact with WPDesignHub.com in ways that require WPDesignHub.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WPDesignHub.com gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who buy our products to provide a name, username, email address, billing address, telephone number, VAT number, and business details if needed.

In each case, WPDesignHub.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WPDesignHub.com. WPDesignHub.com 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, like purchasing a product or sending a support request. Your decision to disclose this data is entirely voluntary. You consent to give us this information by providing it to us voluntarily on our website.

We collect financial data to allow you to purchase, order, renew, return or exchange products or services from our website. We store limited financial data. Most financial data is transferred to our payment processor, Stripe and/or PayPal, and you should review these processors’ Privacy Policy to determine how they use, disclose and protect your financial data. As a courtesy, Stripe’s Privacy Policy can be found here: https://stripe.com/us/privacy. PayPal’s Privacy Policy can be found here: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

We may access personal information from social networking sites and apps, including Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Twitter, Snapchat or other social networking sites or apps not named specifically here, which may include your name, your social network username, location, email address, age, gender, profile picture and any other public information. If you do not want us to access this information, please go to the specific social networking site and change your privacy settings.

All of the information that is collected on WPDesignHub.com will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

WPDesignHub.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on WPDesignHub.com’s behalf or to provide services available through WPDesignHub.com, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using WPDesignHub.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

WPDesignHub.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, WPDesignHub.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when WPDesignHub.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WPDesignHub.com, third parties, or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of a WPDesignHub.com website and have supplied your email address, WPDesignHub.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with WPDesignHub.com and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. WPDesignHub.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
