Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://lendesigns.net.

Lende Signs (“Company”) has adopted this Privacy Policy for its lendesigns.net website (the “Site”).  The Policy describes situations in which information about users of the Site is collected, the purposes and use of that information, and choices you can make about information that pertains to you.  In this Policy, Company is referred to as “we” or “our.”  Users of the Site are referred to as “you.” 

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

• What We Do. We use our website to publish information about our products and services and to enable users to purchase certain products online.  We try to make it easy to use the Site and to deliver relevant information to you and other users.  In order to accomplish these goals, we need to collect information from or about users of the Site. 
• Types of Information Collected.  There are three general types of information that may be collected as a consequence of your use of the Site.  The most common is what we describe as “anonymous information.”  It is anonymous in the sense that it ties to an IP address, i.e. the machine used to generate the visit to the Site, but provides no information that is specific to the user of that machine.  The second is personally identifiable information (“PII”).  PII includes your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, or other information that is specific to you.  Generally, any PII we have about you would have to have been furnished by you.  Finally, we may obtain credit card information if you purchase products from us.  We handle different types of user information in different ways.  The type of information being collected impacts on whether or how much third party access is permitted.
• Anonymous Information We Collect to Provide Better User Experience.  In order to make user visits to our Site more productive and enjoyable, we may use “cookies” to track those visits.  A cookie collects anonymous information.  Using cookies allows us to know if users of a particular computer have been on the Site before.  That information, in turn, allows us to do things like display to you the searches you  undertook on recent visits to the Site.
