Privacy Policy

Welcome to Refresh Restyle

Refresh Restyle has created this Privacy Policy in order to set forth the principles governing our information-gathering and dissemination practices, including but not limited to such activities as forums, chat rooms, personal profile pages, product reviews, article commentary, blogs, RSS feeds and newsletters, among other offerings. Refresh Restyle has a strong commitment to the privacy of our users. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through Refresh Restyle and not to information collected offline or to information you may provide to any third-party sites to whichRefresh Restyle may link, except as expressly provided herein.

Information We Collect

There are two kinds of information that Refresh Restyle can obtain about you: “AnonymousInformation” and “Personally Identifiable Information.” “Anonymous Information” consists of non-personally-identifiable data, such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address or domain, or information about your usage onRefresh Restyle that is used for administrative purposes only. For example, an IP address is a unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We may collect our users’ IP addresses for such purposes as to help diagnose problems with our servers and to report aggregate information to our advertisers, corporate affiliates and consultants, and to third parties that perform particular services on our behalf. We may also use the information linked to IP addresses to ban users who violate our Terms and Conditions of use. “Personally Identifiable Information” is any information that personally identifies you, such as your name, street address, email address, or telephone number. We collect such information when, for example, you enter a contest, subscribe to our email newsletter, and participate in other interactive online activities such as forums. When we collect Personally Identifiable Information from you, you will have the opportunity to “opt in” to receive email or other digital communications from us and/or our business partners. If you have submitted your personal information to Refresh Restyle, you may correct, amend or delete the Personally Identifiable Information maintained on file about you if it is incorrect. In all cases, we will only use your information as permitted by law. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Privacy Policy, however, we may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to others if we are required to do so by law or we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights and property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site; or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public. Please note that we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

Use of “Cookies”

Refresh Restyle uses “cookies” – data that is transferred fromRefresh Restyle to your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visitRefresh Restyle. Some of the advertisements appearing onRefresh Restyle are delivered by our third-party ad network, DoubleClick. In the course of serving advertisements, DoubleClick may place or recognize a unique “cookie” in your browser’s cache, and may use Anonymous Information (including date/time of the banner ad displayed, the ad that was displayed and the IP address of the visitor) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you and to collect statistical information. For more information about DoubleClick’s privacy policy, please click here. If you would like to “opt out” of having a unique cookie placed on your hard drive by DoubleClick, please click here or here.

Disclosure of Information through Business Transfers

As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses, and in so doing, acquire customer information. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. Similarly, in the event that a portion or all of Refresh Restyle’s assets are sold or transferred to a third party, customer information (including your email address) would likely be one of the transferred business assets.

Third Party Web Sites

Refresh Restyle contains links to third-party Web sites not owned or controlled byRefresh Restyle. Refresh Restyle is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third-party Web sites. Inclusion of any linked Web site on Refresh Restyle does not imply or express an approval or endorsement of the linked Web site by us, or of any of the content, opinions, products or services provided on these Web sites. Even if an affiliation exists between Refresh Restyle and a third-party Web site, we exercise no control over linked sites. Each of these linked sites maintains its own independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. If you visit a Web site via a link from one of our Sites, we encourage you to consult that Web site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information, and whenever interacting with any such Web site.

Public Forums

Refresh Restyle may make chat rooms, forums, blogs, article commenting, and personal profile pages available to users. Please remember that any such information that you may choose to provide in these areas becomes accessible to the public, and also becomes the property of Refresh Restyle in accordance with our Terms and Conditions, and we may use such information in any way that we see fit. Consequently, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information or to upload material of any kind.

Security

Refresh Restyle has reasonable security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Security of information communicated by or to us over the Internet is of utmost concern to us; however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that your email, like most, if not all, unencrypted Internet communications, may potentially be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. While we strive to protect your personal information, Refresh Restyle cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Once we receive your transmission, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived.

Policy Regarding Minors

Children should always ask parents before providing any personal information online. No information should be submitted to or posted on Refresh Restyle by any minor (a person under 18 years of age) without the consent of a parent or guardian. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, we do not knowingly provide any Personally Identifiable Information about minors, regardless of its source, nor is this information knowingly used by Refresh Restyle for any marketing or promotional purposes. Minors are not eligible to participate in contests. Refresh Restyle abides by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. In the event that we learn that we have collected information from any child under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete this information from our database as quickly as reasonably possible.

    Debbie,
    Love your DIY Projects and your blog. My company sponsors other DIYer blogs nationwide and we also are a sponsor of an Atlanta Home Radio Show. I was wondering if we could be a sponsor on your site in exchange for me helping with marketing of your blog. We have good traffic through my company’s pinterest pages, facebook pages, twitter and numerous followers as we are a pro with the hometalk.com community. We post Tuesdays through Fridays on all our social sites including Google Plus. On Hometalk we feature a DIY Project every Wednesday and would love to feature yours with a link back to your site if that is okay with you as we have to get approval for that from you specifically. I could also get you on the home radio show as well. Let me know if this is of interest and look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, KRISZTINA BELL, professional home stager, founder of modern virtual staging & co-host of At Home Radio Show
