By using the MakerSights platform, and any of its associated tools or sites, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information,. MakerSights may collect basic demographic information, such as your zipcode, age, gender, household income and other custom demographic questions developed by our brand partners.

This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the MakerSights platform.

MakerSights encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from MakerSights so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. MakerSights is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the MakerSights platform.

 

Use of your Personal Information

MakerSights uses non-sensitive customer information as part of its standard business practices in the collection and delivery of market research to its clients. We treat customer information and any research responses shared as information that is private. MakerSights does not sell, rent or lease any customer information it collects to third parties, except as set forth below.

MakerSights may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within MakerSights, in order to determine what MakerSights services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within MakerSights to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.  

MakerSights will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on MakerSights or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of MakerSights; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of MakerSights, or the public or in cases of national security.

MakerSights may choose to buy or sell assets in the future, and may be required to transfer and/or share customer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into any such transactions.

We may also allow our merchant partners to choose the demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and/or promotional offers and you agree that we may provide any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to a merchant partner, in order for that partner to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements and/or offers.

In rare cases of onward transfer to third parties, MakerSights is generally liable for the acts of the third party that are in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles. Customer information that is transferred to a third party abroad for processing or to support our efforts in providing our services to you is subject, by law, to a comparable level of protection as that provided by MakerSights. A “comparable level of protection” means a level of protection generally equivalent to that provided by Makersights.

Use of Cookies

The MakerSights website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize MakerSights pages, or register with MakerSights site or services, a cookie helps MakerSights to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same MakerSights website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the MakerSights features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the MakerSights services or websites you visit.

Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. While we respect the privacy of our users, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals set by your browser at this time. As described above we use cookies to enable you to use MakerSights site and services. It helps us remember users’ settings as well as for authentication and analytics.
