We’re committed to protecting the privacy of our customers. This notice describes our “Privacy Policy.” By using the Matt Summers website, you agree to accept the terms set forth in this Privacy Policy
This statement applies to Personally Identifiable Information collected from our customers.

It may also include certain financial information that we collect. With this information, we can fill your service and product orders and better provide you with personalized services.

Matt Summers has implemented reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorized access to personal information that we’ve collected.  However, no website and no security measures can fully eliminate security risks or the possibility of data breaches.
In the event of any unauthorized access to your personal information, we will make a commercially reasonable effort to notify you regarding the nature and extent of the breach, and we will comply with all applicable laws and regulations related to the breach.

3. Information We Share with Others
We contract with other companies (such as shippers, credit card processors and website developers) to provide certain services to Matt Summers to fulfill orders, provide contests and create our website. In some instances, these contractors may have access to Personally Identifiable Information but they are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality of the information and to use it only for purposes of carrying out the business of Matt Summers.
These companies are prohibited by contract from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than Matt Summers.
Your Personally Identifiable Information is never shared with any third party (except as described above to our contractors who use it ONLY to carry out Matt Summers business.)

4. Disclosure Exceptions
Notwithstanding the above policies, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to appropriate third parties if we are required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary:
• To comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order

• To investigate reports of fraud or of users sending material using a false e-mail address or users sending harassing, threatening, or abusive messages
• To protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website
• During emergencies, such as when we believe someone’s physical safety is at risk

5. Your Choices
We offer choices about the types of information you receive from us. If you prefer not to receive product information or other communications from Matt Summers or if you prefer to receive them less frequently, please contact us at info@mattsummersdesign.com. Please be sure to provide us your exact name and address, or the mailing label from your catalog, so that we can be sure to identify you correctly. Because mailings are planned in advance, it may take several weeks for your request to become effective. If, due to human error, you continue to receive unwanted communications, please contact us again and we will make every effort to correct the situation.

6. Links to other websites
Occasionally we provide links on our website to other sites we think you will enjoy. These sites operate independently of Matt Summers and have established their own privacy and security policies. Matt Summers does not have any control over the privacy practices of these sites. For the best online experience, we strongly encourage you to review these policies at any website that you visit.
We provide links to other websites that we believe you will find interesting and useful.  We don’t own those sites and we can’t control what content is on those sites.
