We may obtain this consent through the Apps or Sites or using the standard permissions available on your device.

In many cases, your web browser or mobile device platform will provide additional tools to allow you to control when your device collects or shares particular categories of personal data.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with and use the tools available on your devices.

At this time, we do not respond to "do not track" signals sent by web browsers.

WHY and HOW Do We Use Your Personal Data?

We use your personal data in the following ways:

To Provide the Features of the Sites, Apps, and Services You Request

When you use our Sites and Apps, we will use your personal data to provide the requested product or service. For example, if you make a purchase on ajfwebdesign.com, or participate in an event or promotion, we will use the contact information you give us to communicate with you about the purchase, event or promotion. If you contact our consumer services, we will use information about you, such as delivery or payment information, or the product you have purchased to help you resolve a problem or question.

To Communicate Information about our Products, Services, Events and for Other Promotional Purposes

If you are an existing customer of AJF Web Design (for example, if you have paid for a service with us), we may use the contact details you provided to send you marketing communications about similar AJF Web Design products or services, where permitted by applicable law (unless you have opted-out). In other cases, we ask for your consent to send you marketing information.

We may use the information that you provide to us as well as information from other AJF Web Design products or services - such as your use of AJF Web Design Sites and Apps, your participation in AJF Web Design events and contests (possibly through other AJF Web Design affiliates) - to personalize communications and advertisements regarding our products and services that may be of interest to you. For registered users, this may include data collected from your interactions with our Sites and our Apps that are associated with your account across devices.

To Operate, Improve and Maintain our Business, Products and Services

We use the personal data you provide to us to operate our business. For example, when you buy a product or service, we use that information for accounting, audits and other internal functions. We may use personal data about how you use our products and services to enhance your user experience and to help us diagnose technical and service problems and administer our Sites and Apps.

To Protect Our or Others' Rights, Property or Safety

We may also use personal data about how you use our Sites and Apps to prevent, detect, or investigate fraud, abuse, illegal use, violations of our Terms of Use, and to comply with court orders, governmental requests or applicable law.

For General Research and Analysis Purposes

We use data about how our visitors use our Sites, Apps and services to understand customer behaviour or preferences. For example, we may use information about how visitors to ajfwebdesign.com search for and find services to better understand the best ways to organize and present product and service offerings in our storefront.

We use cookies, Google , analytics and Facebook pixel tags to track usage of the Sites and to understand our customers' preferences (such as country and language choices). This enables us to provide services to our customers and improve their online experience. We also use cookies and pixel tags to obtain aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction, to identify trends and obtain statistics so that we can improve our Sites. There are generally three categories of cookies used on our Sites:

Your browser can help you manage cookies. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings on each browser and device that you use. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make our Sites and Apps more efficient and some of our services will not function properly. There are also general resources for opting out of interest based advertising available on the websites of the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance.

Similarly, you can adjust your advertising preferences on your mobile device at the device level. For example, to adjust your advertising preferences in iOS, visit Settings > Privacy > Advertising > Limit Ad Tracking. To adjust your advertising preferences in Android, visit Settings > Google > Ads > Opt out of interest-based ads.

USING AJF Web Design's Sites and Apps with Third-Party Products and Services

Our Sites and Apps allow you to interact with a wide variety of other digital products and services. For example, our Sites and Apps can integrate with third-party devices for activity tracking, social networks, music streaming services and other digital services.

If you choose to connect your AJF Web Design account with a third-party device or account, your privacy rights on third-party platforms will be governed by their respective policies. For example, if you choose to share your AJF Web Design activity on third-party social media platforms, the policies of those platforms govern the data that resides there.

Our Sites and Apps may provide links to other (third-party) websites and apps for your convenience or information. Linked sites and apps have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly encourage you to review. To the extent any linked websites or apps are not owned or controlled by us, we are not responsible for their content, any use of the websites or apps, or the privacy practices of the websites or apps.

CHANGES to Our Privacy Policy

Applicable law and our practices change over time. If we decide to update our privacy policy, we will post the changes on our Sites and Apps. If we materially change the way in which we process your personal data, we will provide you with prior notice, or where legally required, request your consent prior to implementing such changes. We strongly encourage you to read our privacy policy and keep yourself informed of our practices.
