Privacy Policy

We take your privacy seriously. When you use our browser extension, we only collect the information necessary to provide and improve our services.

Short version

When you're not registered or signed in, we don't gather any personal information. However, once you sign in, we store your email address and account ID. Secondly, when you subscribe to any of our paid tiers, we'll require additional details to facilitate your payments and grant you access to the corresponding features.

Your information will be safely kept with Stripe, our payment provider. We can only view the last four digits of your credit card number and will not access any unnecessary data. Our sole purpose in collecting your information is to enhance your experience, and we do not share or sell it to any third party. We take appropriate measures to protect your data, and if you have any queries or concerns, please reach out to us.

Full version

Designer Tools respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Statement explains how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information. By using our website and services, you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Statement.

Information Collected

When you use Designer Tools, we collect certain information from you. The information we collect depends on whether you are using the free or paid version of the extension.

We do not collect personal information if you are not registered or signed in. The extension cannot remember any settings or changes in this mode. No user information is stored or used. The user can use the extension to measure, compare and align elements, inspect distances between two elements, and add guidelines on top of a page to make it easier to see misalignments.

When you register or sign in, we store your email address securely in Stripe, our payment provider. When logged in, you can do everything the logged-out tier can but will be able to store the guidelines and sync them between different browsers where the user is logged in. Also, settings are available now, which can switch between color schemes, change measure units, and customize the ruler thickness and the number of pixels between each line on the ruler. A setting also toggles the selection of inline elements on or off.

For the paid versions (PLUS, PRO, and TEAMS), we collect additional information, such as your name, address, and credit card information. This information is necessary to process your payment and provide you with access to the paid features.

How We Use Your Information

We use the information we collect to provide and improve our browser extension, Designer Tools, as well as to communicate with you about our services, including technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages. We also use your information to personalize your experience with Designer Tools, such as by remembering your preferences and settings, and to display relevant advertising. If you subscribe to any of our paid tiers, we use your information to process your payments and to provide you with access to the corresponding features. Additionally, we may use your information to monitor and analyze usage and trends of our extension, to improve its functionality and performance, and to develop new features.

We only collect and process your personal data when we have a legal basis for doing so. In most cases, we process your data to fulfill our contractual obligations to you, such as when you subscribe to our paid tiers. We also process your data based on our legitimate interests, such as improving our extension, preventing fraud and abuse, and ensuring the security of our systems. In some cases, we may need to process your data to comply with legal obligations, such as responding to lawful requests from law enforcement agencies. We may also process your data based on your consent, such as when you agree to receive marketing communications from us or when you grant us access to certain information from your device. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, although doing so may impact your ability to use some of our services.

Sharing of Your Information

We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes. However, we may share your information with our service providers and business partners who assist us in providing and improving our services, such as our payment provider Stripe. We may also share your information in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets. In such cases, we will ensure that any party to whom we transfer your information agrees to comply with the terms of this Privacy Statement and applicable data protection laws.

Third-Party Services

Our extension may contain links to third-party websites or services, such as social media platforms or other applications. We do not control these third-party services and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these third-party services before using them.

Data Retention

We retain your information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. If you unsubscribe from our services or if your account becomes inactive, we may retain your information for a reasonable period to allow you to resubscribe or reactivate your account. We may also retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. After your information is no longer necessary for these purposes, we will securely dispose of it in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Your Rights

We want you to be in control of your personal information, and we respect your privacy rights. You have certain rights regarding your personal information, subject to local data protection laws. These include the right to access, correct, or delete your information or to object to or restrict our processing of your information. You may also have the right to receive a copy of your information in a commonly used format and to transmit it to another controller without hindrance from us.

If you ever want to exercise any of these rights or have any questions or concerns about how we handle your information, please don't hesitate to contact us using the information in Chapter 12. We're here to help and will do our best to address your concerns as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Security of Your Information

We take the security of your personal information seriously and implement reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect it against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We regularly review and update our security measures in accordance with industry best practices and applicable laws and regulations. However, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee absolute security.

Children's Privacy

Our services are not directed to children under the age of 16, and we do not knowingly collect or process personal information from children. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child without verified parental consent, we will take steps to delete it as soon as possible. If you believe that we may have collected personal information from a child, please contact us using the information in Chapter 12.

These are important aspects of our privacy policy, and we encourage you to read and understand them fully before using our services. If you have any questions or concerns about our Privacy Statement, please contact us using the information in Chapter 12.

Changes to the Privacy Statement

We may update this Privacy Statement from time to time to reflect changes in our information practices or applicable laws. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Statement, we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on our website or in the Designer Tools extension. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
