4.1 Disclosure to Successors. We may disclose your Personal Information to any successor-in-interest of ours, such as a company that acquires us. In the event iDesign Street goes through a business transition, such as a merger or acquisition by or with another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information will likely be among the assets transferred.

4.4 Disclosure to Design/Content Owners. If you purchase a product from a Store, iDesign Street may provide your name, the city, and state information provided by you to the Storekeeper. In the DCOSA iDesign Street contractually obligates each Storekeeper not to use or disclose this information for any purposes other than internal record keeping, and for marketing their Stores (only if you have opted in to receive marketing material directly from the Storekeeper).

You may not opt-out of the sharing of this information; however, identifying you personally is extremely difficult with the information we disclose.

6. Does iDesign Street Protect My Personal Information?
6.1 Personal Information. Whenever we obtain your Personal Information, we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access or disclosure. However, we are not insurers of the security of your Personal Information. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access, other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.
6.2 Website Design/Content. The content that you store, post, or transmit on or through the Website, such as message board postings, storefront pages, and images on your Products, may be accessed by other users, including people that you do not know. We are not responsible for the actions of others. Therefore, you should use care in communicating with other users and only disclose your Personal Information to other users that you know to be trustworthy. You should not assume that your content will be kept private.

We will attempt to notify you of any material changes by sending you an email, an electronic newsletter, posting a notice on the home page of the Website, posting a notice in your account when you first login, or any combination of these, after we have made changes. We may send you such notifications in advance of the changes being posted on the Website. We are not responsible for any failure of delivery of such notifications, including, but not limited to, pop-up blockers, spam blockers, ISP blockage, email client misfiles and errors, disabled or deactivated cookies, or other electronic mechanisms that might prevent timely delivery of the notifications.
8. How Can I Review and Make Changes to My Personal Information?

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number and/or social security number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
10. Internet-based Transfers
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process Personal Information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis.

We endeavor to protect all Personal Information collected through the Website in a safe, confidential, and secure manner.

In addition, we will delete any information in our database that we know originates from a child under the age of 13.
12.2 Thirteen to Seventeen. Prospective users who are at least 13 but not yet 18, can only use the iDesign Street Services under their parents’ or legal guardian’s supervision.
