Privacy

Your privacy is vital to us at Professional Themes. The primary principle which guides us is that we will only ask for your information if we need it. We will never share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, protect our rights, or develop our products. Put simply, we deeply value your privacy. Below you will find the privacy policy for all of Professional Themes’s websites, including professionalthemes.nyc.

Security

Professional Themes takes extensive measures to protect information both offline and online. All website information, including any transmitted during a payment transaction on professionalthemes.nyc, is encrypted and protected using a Comodo-provided EV SSL. Information that is stored about our customers in external platforms, for example Basecamp or Highrise, is SSL-protected as well. Email, group communication channels, and client-facing project management tools are all protected via 2FA. In short, we are very serious about security and take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of both our data and your data.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Professional Themes collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Professional Themes’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Professional Themes’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Professional Themes may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Professional Themes also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Professional Themes does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Professional Themes’s websites (including professionalthemes.nyc) choose to interact with Professional Themes in ways that require Professional Themes to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Professional Themes gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our products or purchase our support to provide a username and email address. In each case, Professional Themes collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Professional Themes. Professional Themes does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Professional Themes may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Professional Themes may reveal how many downloads a particular software version got, or say which products are most popular based on checks from sales figures, ratings, or visits. However, Professional Themes does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Professional Themes discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Professional Themes’s behalf or to provide services available at Professional Themes’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Professional Themes’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Professional Themes will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Professional Themes discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Professional Themes believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Professional Themes, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Professional Themes website and have supplied your email address, Professional Themes may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Professional Themes and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Professional Themes takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
