We collect several types of information from and about users of the site, as further described herein, including information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number (“personal information”), information that is about you but does not identify you such as your company’s name and your title, and information about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access our site and usage details. We collect this information directly from you when you provide it to us and automatically when you use the site, including when you navigate through and interact with our site, as explained below.
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us to provide our products and services to you, to inform you about updates to our site and the products and services we offer, to provide you with information relating to your purchases, to provide you with other information that we think may be of interest to you, and for other purposes with your consent, as explained in greater detail below. We may also supplement the information we collect with additional information purchased from third parties for marketing purposes.
In addition, we may use your information to contact you about products and services that may be of interest to you. If you do not want us to use your information in this way, please see the “Opt-Out Policy” section of this Privacy Statement above.
If you register for an account with us, we collect and store personal information that you submit to us. Some of the information you may be required to submit includes your name, user ID, password, street address, city, state, zip/postal code, country, email address and billing information as described above. Other information requested on our registration page, including the ability to receive promotional offers from Digity, may be optional. We may, in the future, include other optional requests for information from you, to help us to tailor the site for you and deliver personalized information to you. Certain personal information we obtain may reveal or allow others to identify aspects of your private life, including information deemed “sensitive” by applicable law.
If you decide to purchase a product from us, we will collect only the information necessary for authentication and billing purposes. When you place an order, we need to know your name, email address, street address, city, state, zip/postal code. For credit card transactions, we will need the applicable credit card number, expiration date, security code, and the name as it appears on the card. This information allows us to process and fulfill your orders, and to notify you of your order status.
If you decide to participate in an online survey or use one of our promotional features, such as a free trial for a particular product, if applicable, we may ask for your name, address, email address and other pertinent information to administer the survey or promotion and tabulate survey results.

We value your input and encourage you to help us expand and make improvements to the site by providing us with any thoughts or comments you might have regarding our services or the operation of our site. You can submit any comments you have to us by clicking on the comment link available on our site. When sending us comments we may receive your email address or user ID, the country in which you are located, and other information about you. If you provide this information, we will only use it to acknowledge or respond to your comments. Submitting comments via an email will not cause you to receive any secondary or promotional material, unless specifically requested by you. In certain circumstances, we may ask for your permission to post your comments in marketing or promotional materials.
Usage Details, IP Addresses and Cookies
Digity automatically collects your browser type and browser software version to tailor the presentation of the services to your platform and to maintain a record of your activity on the site. To improve our site and make it more useful and interesting to you, we use “cookies” for navigation of site and for customization of information that we may present to you. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive and enable users to specify unique preferences and to track user trends and patterns. As an automatic process, our web server software records a log file of IP addresses that access the site. We also collect IP address information but do not ordinarily link IP addresses to users’ personal information. However, will use IP addresses to identify a user when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our various policies or to protect our services, site, customers or others.
Sharing Your Information
In addition, we may provide summary statistics about our customers’ interests and preferences, products sold, traffic patterns and related site information to third parties. These statistics do not include personal information; they are used only to enhance the design of our site and customize new products offerings to our customers. We do not use or share personal information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described in this Privacy Statement.
Though we use commercially reasonable efforts to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, when requested in connection with a governmental investigation or under similar circumstances wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a governmental investigation or directive, court order or legal process. We may also disclose personal information to enforce or apply our Service Terms and Conditions (available at http://www.digity.com/terms) and other agreements, including for billing and collection purposes, and if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Digity, our customers or others.
Additionally, we may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide to us to a buyer or other successor in the event of a change in ownership, merger or sale or transfer of some or all of Digity’s assets in which personal information held by Digity about our users is among the assets transferred. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you (for example, by posting on our site) of any such change in ownership, merger or acquisition of Digity’s assets.
Preventing Unauthorized Access to Your Information
When appropriate, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) server software to help prevent unauthorized access to the information you submit online. If and when you place orders or access your account information, SSL technology encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. You can identify the secure connection by looking at the URL, which will begin with “https:” (instead of “http:”). Please note that although we have implemented measures designed to help protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data as it travels over the Internet.
Accessing and Updating Your Information
If you register for an account with us, you can review the personal information you provided Digity and update such information by accessing your account. If you update any of your information, we may keep a copy of the information which you originally provided to us in our archives for uses documented herein. If you have questions regarding your ability to update or remove information, or relating to this Privacy Statement, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of Your Personal Information Following Termination
We save your personal information until your account with us is terminated or your use of the site is otherwise discontinued, or the service package(s) you purchase has expired, whichever is later. To terminate membership, contact Digity Customer Service at email@example.com.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, your personal information will remain on our archived database and records. We will not use this archived personal information except to the extent we believe it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or if required by law. In addition to the above, we will maintain information on users who have been removed for violating any of our agreements.
