Privacy Policy

Our commitment to privacy

Here at the Scott Design Inc. website, your privacy is important. To better protect and ensure that privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

Who operates this site and collects information?

This site is owned and operated by Scott Design Inc., PO Box 758, Capitola, CA 95010, United States of America.

What types of information are collected?

On the hotdesign.com website, visitors can sign up for an HTML e-newsletter and can create an account for Special Delivery.

The types of personal information collected are:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email address
  • Company address and phone number

Note: Only your first name and email address are required to sign up for the e-newsletter or a Special Delivery account. With one necessary exception, personally identifiable information is never shared with a third party. The only exception would involve the use of a third-party email vendor that manages the emailing of the Scott Design Inc. e-newsletter to interested subscribers. The email vendor used by Scott Design Inc. follows the same strict Privacy Policy to which the hotdesign.com site adheres.

How is this information collected?

Information is collected when a visitor to the site submits information in a registration form. Information currently is submitted to register to receive the e-newsletter or open a Special Delivery account. Registration is conducted online.

How is this information used?

We use the information you provide about yourself to send you an e-newsletter or to store your Special Delivery designs. We use return email addresses to answer the emails we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Electronic newsletter subscription

You can register with our website if you would like to receive an e-newsletter, which provides the latest information about Scott Design Inc., or if you would like to be notified when we update the Special Delivery application. Information you submit on our website will not be used for these purposes unless you fill out the registration form and check the appropriate box(es).

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures that safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Special Delivery emails

You may determine who receives emails you create with Special Delivery, but Scott Design Inc. cannot ensure that only specified individuals will see them. The people to whom you send your email may forward the email or link to others. Your email’s content is your sole responsibility and Scott Design Inc. is not responsible in any way for the email’s privacy. (See our Terms and Conditions to learn more about guidelines concerning Special Delivery and other services, activities, and promotions provided by Scott Design Inc. and its website, hotdesign.com.)

How you can access or correct your information

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

Cookies and log data

At hotdesign.com, we will use cookies (information files) to determine the number of visitors to our website and to eliminate the need for visitors to conduct multiple log-ins, if they seek to avoid those steps. We also will use cookies to determine user preferences that help us better provide the appropriate content you seek. Our cookies cannot and will not damage your hard drive, and our cookies will not collect and/or distribute personally identifiable information about you. You can disable cookies in computers by indicating that action in the preference or options menus of the browser.

Links to other websites

At hotdesign.com, we will limit the use of links that bring users to third-party web pages, and when such links are used, the identity and host of those third-party web pages will be clearly displayed and recognizable. Please alert us if you believe any of our links take viewers to content that could be deemed inappropriate. We encourage you to consult the other sites’ privacy notices, since our Privacy Policy does not cover those sites.
