How do we protect your information?
To keep your information secure, we implement a variety of security measures.
For starters, we use regular malware scanning to ensure the information you share on our website is as secure as possible. We also do our best to keep hackers out by regularly updating the website plugins and platform.
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers. To further ensure the protection of your information, a third-party PCI-compliant service handles all transaction processing. That’s why we invoice you and accept payment through the portal on Wave.
Do we use ‘cookies’?
If you turn cookies off, it won’t affect your web browsing experience.
We do not sell, share or hand over your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our customers. But only so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. Which they have.
When appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ right, property or safety, we may release information to appropriate authorities.
Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, we put parents in control of that. We do not market to children under the age of 13 years old. Parents and children are in charge of supervising their children while they browse the internet.
Fair Information Practices
Here’s what we’re doing in order to be in line with Fair Information Practices should a data breach occur: We will notify you via email within 30 days of receiving the notification of a data breach.
And as in accordance with the Individual Redress Principle, we also agree that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is one of our favorite laws ever. The law sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. Basically, the law says you can’t try to sell people stuff via email unless they’ve consented to receive that kind of communication from you.
At Off-Center Design, we collect your email address. We do that in order to:
- Send you requested information
- Respond to inquiries
- Honor your subscription to our newsletter by sending monthly emails with helpful content
In accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to:
- Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses
- Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way if it is indeed an advertisement
- Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
- Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used
- Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly
- Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email newsletter you receive. And we will promptly remove you from all correspondence.
