TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

Cookies, Log Files and Web Beacons: Like many other Web sites, we make use of log files. These files merely log visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

We also use cookies - small text files sent to us by your computer - and web beacons to store certain  information. We may use cookies to authenticate your identity, to determine if you are logged onto our website, for personalization, for security, for targeted advertising, or for analysis of the performance of our website and services.  For example, cookies allow us to recommend blog posts to you based on what you have read on our site in the past. We use cookies that are not specific to your account but unique enough to allow us to analyze general trends and use, and to customize your interaction with our website.

Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default.  In addition, when you first encounter our website, you will be asked to “consent to cookies.” If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options.  However, this may affect your ability to use or make purchases from our website.

PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION

For the most part, we do not process your information in-house, but give it to third party processors for processing.

More detail on third party processing is detailed below.

However, we may, from time to time, process your data internally. The legal basis for this processing is both your consent to the processing, and our need to conduct our legitimate business interests.  Our purposes in processing this information, if we do, is to administer, maintain, and improve our website and offerings, to enter into contracts with you, to fulfill the terms of those contracts, to keep records of our transactions and interactions, to be able to provide you with goods and services, to comply with our legal obligations, to obtain professional advice, and to protect the rights and interests of our company, our customers (including you), and any third parties.  We may process the following data:

  • Data associated with your account, such as your name, address, email address and payment information
  • Data about your usage of our website, such as your IP address, geographical information, and how long you accessed our website and what you viewed. 
  • Data related to your personal profile, such as your name, address, profile picture, interests and hobbies, or employment details.
  • Data that you provide us in the course of using our services.
  • Data that you post on our website, such as comments or responses to blogs.

By using our Services, you’re agreeing to our Electronic Communications Policy, which describes how we provide that information to you. It says that we can send you information electronically (by email, etc.) instead of mailing you paper copies (it’s better for the environment), and that your electronic agreement is the same as your signature on paper.

 

TERMINATION

Termination By You. We'd hate to see you go, but you may terminate your account with Little Sweet Designs at any time from your account settings. Terminating your account will not affect the items you've downloaded prior to termination on the condition that you've been on a paid membership plan for more than one month - you get to use and keep those for life. If your membership with Little Sweet Designs spans under one full month, you agree to discard the downloaded items immediately upon termination of your membership - these downloads, templates and lessons are not licensed to you for use and you agree to delete and discard them immediately off all your devices.

Terminating your account also means you won't be able to access any future new content added to the membership site after your termination expires. You will also loose any discount rights to the price of your original membership enrollment. Once you leave, if you decide to join us again, it will be at the current enrollment price as stated here.  

Termination By Little Sweet Designs. We may terminate or suspend your account (and any related accounts) and your access to the Services at any time, for any reason, and without advance notice. If we do so, it’s important to understand that you don’t have a contractual or legal right to continue to use our Services, for example, to download files or access the membership content.

We will not be liable to you for the effect that any changes to the Services may have on you, including your income or your ability to generate revenue through the use of the Members Club Service.

Survival. The Terms will remain in effect even after your access to the Service is terminated, or your use of the Service ends.

 

WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
(or the Things You Can’t Sue Us For)

Third-Party Services. Our Services may contain links to third-party websites or services that we don’t own or control (for example, links to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Font sites). You may also need to use a third party’s product or service in order to use some of our Services. When you access these third-party services, you do so at your own risk. The third parties may require you to accept their own terms of use. Little Sweet Designs is not a party to those agreements; they are solely between you and the third party.

People You Interact With. You can use the Services to interact with other individuals, either online or in person (for example; in the private Members' only Facebook group). However, you understand that we do not screen users of our Services, and you release us from all liability relating to your interactions with other users. Please be careful and exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with others, especially if you are meeting someone in person.

Warranties. Little Sweet Designs Pty Ltd is dedicated to making our Services the best they can be, but we’re not perfect and sometimes things can go wrong. You understand that our Services are provided “as is” and without any kind of warranty (express or implied). We are expressly disclaiming any warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, as well as any warranties implied by a course of performance, course of dealing or usage of trade.

We do not guarantee that: (i) the Services will be secure or available at any particular time or location; (ii) any defects or errors will be corrected; (iii) the Services will be free of viruses or other harmful materials; or (iv) the results of using the Services will meet your expectations. You use the Services solely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

Liability Limits. To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither Little Sweet Designs, nor our employees or directors shall be liable to you for any lost profits or revenues, or for any consequential, incidental, indirect, special or punitive damages arising out of or in connection with the Services or these Terms. In no event shall Little Sweet Designs' aggregate liability for any damages exceed the greater of one hundred ($100) US Dollars or the amount you paid Little Sweet Designs in the past twelve months. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

 

CHANGES TO THE TERMS

We may update these Terms from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely let you know by doing one (or more) of the following: (1) posting the changes through the Services or (2) sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.

 

SOME FINER LEGAL POINTS

The Terms, including all of the policies that make up the Terms, supersede any other agreement between you and Little Sweet Designs regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms.

We’re based in Adelaide, Australia, so any legal action against Little Sweet Designs Pty Ltd related to our Services must be filed and take place in Adelaide. The Terms and any action related to the Terms will be governed by the laws of the Australia (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of South Australia.
