We dislike spam as much as you do!

protect your privacy

Protecting your privacy is important to Dreystone Software. We strive to keep your personal information confidential. By ensuring that you are aware of and understand the Dreystone Software Privacy Policy, we can provide you with better and more efficient service. Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.

This privacy policy covers the treatment of personal information Dreystone Software collects when you are on our site. This policy also applies to the treatment of any personal information that our business partners share with us. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that we do not employ or manage.

Information Collection and Use

Dreystone Software collects and uses your personal information only to give you high quality customer service, to provide you with convenient access to our products and services, and to make a wider range of services available to you.

We do not send unsolicited email. Because we hate spam, we will not use your email address to send out product announcements, software updates, or special offers unless you specifically request to be notified of such. If you are receiving email from us, it is because at some point you, or someone with access to your email account, requested it. If you choose to join our announcement list, you can always opt-out simply by following the instructions that appear at the bottom of the email message in question. If you are receiving email from us in response to an inquiry you made, you can rest assured that we will use your email address for no purpose other than to respond to your inquiry.

help us help you

We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we might ask for your email information when you correspond with us, make a purchase or request service, or to register your software or stock photography product. We collect and store the information you provide us in a secure database.

Your Dreystone account allows you to easily access your account assets. This can include software product activation codes, download links for stock photography assets, and records of purchases. Access to your order information is kept confidential through use of a transaction id and a secret reference key which is only provided in the order confirmation.

As with any site, we do have a log file which tells us the IP address and referring page of our visitors, but we make no effort to tie any of this to you personally. We do use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to help administer our Web site and your IP may also be used to gather broad demographic information.

Information Sharing

We only use this information for two general purposes: to customize the content you see and to fulfill your requests for certain services and information. For example, we might give shipping companies this information so they can deliver your products efficiently. The information they receive is for shipping and delivery purposes only, and we require that the companies safeguard your personal information in accordance with Dreystone Privacy policies.

The Dreystone website contains links to and from other sites. Dreystone does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

To make sure your personal information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to every employee.

It is our strict company policy that we will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your prior permission, except for cases where we may be required by law.

Cookies

When you browse the Dreystone website, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we do not collect personal information when you browse -- not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.

Like many websites, the Dreystone website uses "cookie" technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. The cookies we use do not reveal any personal information about you. Cookies help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, the shopping cart information, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better.

The Dreystone Software Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time. We encourage you to review the privacy policy regularly for any changes.
