Information collection and use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide, administer and improve our Services and software, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate and interact with the Services.
We will collect personal information when you interact with our Services such as when you:
register with us through the Services and create an account;
make a purchase via the Services;
submit a request for technical support;
submit a request for information about the Services;
download, register, and/or install any of our software; or
post any content via the Services
This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information"). We use your Personal Information mainly to provide and improve the Services, complete your transactions, enforce licensing terms, and administer your inquiries. During the registration process on our Sites, you will be asked for the following Personal Information: your name, your email address, a password and your mailing address. This Personal Information is used for validation purposes and to be able to carry out our Services. It may also be used to send you additional promotional information about our Services. We store all data associated with your account, including your contact information, but we do not keep credit card or other billing information.
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, you may follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or opt-out of receiving such communications via the Services (See "Changing or Deleting Information", below).
When you register or create an Pattern Orchard account, we will collect certain personal information, including but not limited to IP address, operating system, username, hostname, and hardware ID during your use of the software. When you use our software, the software may automatically provide us with anonymous usage statistics.
We may combine Personal Information that we collect from you with information we obtain about you from third parties (e.g., updated contact information and additional demographic information). We may also aggregate your Personal Information with information collected from other Pattern Orchard users (defined below) to customize your user experience, to improve the quality and value of the Services, to inform you about Pattern Orchard products and services that may be of interest to you, and to analyse and understand how our Services are used.

We may use standard Internet technologies, such as web beacons (also called clear GIFs or pixel tags) and other similar technologies, to deliver or communicate with cookies and track your use of the Services. We may also include web beacons in e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we obtain in this manner enables us to improve our existing Services, create new Services, and measure the overall effectiveness of our online content, marketing campaigns, and the Services.
Information sharing or disclosure
In the event that we contract with a third party to provide some part of the service that you have requested or to assist us in analysing our service or information collected about you, Pattern Orchard may provide your information and/or your end user information to such third party, or such third party may collect information from you or the end users on our behalf. We may share your information and end user information with third parties with whom we have a strategic relationship, such as suppliers and advertisers. The information shared with these third parties may be used for industry analysis or demographic profiling. When permitted by applicable law, we may also provide your information and end user information to our business partners or other trusted entities for the purpose of providing you with information on goods and services we believe will be of interest to you.
We will disclose any information about you or your end users to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Pattern Orchard or any third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable.
In addition, we may disclose information to third parties in connection with a corporate reorganization, merger or amalgamation, or the sale of all or substantially all of our assets.
Changing or deleting your information
All Pattern Orchard account holders may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information provided during registration by contacting us. If you completely delete all such information, then your Account may become deactivated.
If you would like us to delete your Account in our system, please contact us with a request that we delete your Personal Information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honour your request. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
Confidentiality and security
While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to your data will not occur, we make good faith efforts to prevent such occurrences. We do not warrant or represent that your account or any of your information or end user information will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.
