In addition, we share your personal information with our online store provider so that they can process your payments for us. We also may share your information with third-party vendors who provide services or functions on our behalf, such as data processing. Mailing lists compiled from the information you provide will only be used by Destify for its own marketing and promotional purposes, and will not be sold or shared with any third parties.

It may also be used to help Destify review and improve its products, promotions, and customer service.

This information may include number of page views, visitor sessions, session length, hits, number of unique visitors, browser type, number of visits by each visitor, most requested pages, most accessed pages, top paths through the site, number of returning users. Not all of this information is shared with our business affiliates, but some aggregate numbers such as page views on a particular page during a particular time frame may be shared.

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and any who have such access are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be kept on file for more than one year after your return from vacation, or as required by applicable laws and regulations.
You can opt out of targeted advertising using the following links:
FACEBOOK – https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads
GOOGLE – https://www.google.com/settings/ads/anonymous
BING – https://advertise.bingads.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/policies/personalized-ads
Additionally, you can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at: http://optout.aboutads.info/ . Note that if you choose not to receive tailored ads, you will still see online advertisements, but they will be more general and less relevant to you.
Certain browsers may offer you the option of providing notice to websites that you do not wish for your online activities to be tracked for preference-based advertising purposes (“DNT Notice”). Some browsers are, by default, set to provide a DNT Notice, whether or not that reflects your preference. Providing DNT Notice is often touted as a means to ensure that cookies, web beacons and similar technology are not used for preference-based advertising purposes – that is, to restrict the collection of information your online activities for advertising purposes. Unfortunately, given how preference-based advertising works, DNT Notices may not effectively accomplish this goal. For this and a variety of other reasons, with respect to our Site, we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices based on browser based DNT Notices. Rather, if you do not wish to participate in preference-based advertising activities, you should follow the opt-out process identified above.
