You should carefully review this privacy policy before using the Website. This privacy policy applies only to information collected through this Website and not to any information collected from us or through us through other platforms.

2.  What information is collected?
Demographic Information. For some activities, your mobile web browser or client software may transmit certain geographic information or information regarding your mobile device to RDW Design Studio. RDW Design Studio may use that information to generate aggregate statistics about our user community and may provide that information to advertisers and other parties with whom we have a business relationship. In addition, RDW Design Studio may use any such information for security, system integrity (the prevention of hacking, cheating and other improper or unlawful activities), or enforcement purposes.

When you visit this Website, we may, at our option, automatically collect and store the following types of non-personally identifiable information received from you: (i) information from server logs found on your browser; (ii) click-through statistics; (iii) Website traffic and behavioral usage (iv) your country; (v) the type of web browser you are using to access this Website; (vi) the type of operating system you are using; (vii) the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; (viii) the date and time you access this Website and the duration of your visit; (ix) the Internet address of the site from which you linked directly to this Website; (x) browsing history; (xi) mobile page views; and (x) the type of handset device and mobile operating system you are using (e.g. Android, iPhone, etc…). RDW Design Studio only uses this data in aggregate form, for statistical purposes, and not in a manner that would give RDW Design Studio sufficient information to identify you personally. Automatically collected information of that kind typically provides us with a greater understanding regarding the use of this Website, including which pages are the most popular with our visitors, what types of content, offers and products our visitors are interested in, where they are generally located and what are their general mobile browsing behavioral patterns. That information also allows us to determine if this Website is working properly, make changes to the Website that allows users to have better experiences on the Website, and improve the Website, our offers and promotional content so that they are more relevant to our visitors. We collect that information and track it for statistical purposes; we do not use it to identify or to market to a particular user.

When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work when a particular device visits a particular page. RDW Design Studio uses pixel tags for website analytics, to serve you more relevant content and promotional offers based upon your historical behavioral patterns.

Additionally, we may be required to disclose IP addresses pursuant to a court order or subpoena. RDW Design Studio may also identify and track your Internet protocol (“IP”) address.
