The Signs Studios website allows you to create an “Signs Studios ID” based on your personal information. This convenient service saves you time and allows for easier use of our web services.

The system saves your information and assigns you the Username and Password you specified in the registration form.
If you use a bulletin board or chat room on an Signs Studios website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages.

For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, Signs Studios will collect that information from your interaction and the information will become publicly available.

These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with Signs Studios’s policies. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Signs Studios website.

In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Signs Studios website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
In addition we use pixel tags — tiny graphic images — to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.
Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we’re sending only messages that are of interest to our customers. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a customer. We store all of this information in a secure database located in Italy at Register SPA Internet Provider, one of the best provider in Italy.
