Privacy Policy



SECTION 1 - Information collected by Modmopolitan and How it is used

We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our website, which is to enable creative people to print and share designs for textiles and other products and to share other information and ideas as a community. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience, inform you about new products and creative ideas, to remember your preferences, to provide for the security of our site and users, to process transactions and perform under agreements between you and Modmopolitan, and to improve our services. We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with these objectives. For a complete list of the information we collect, where it is stored and which, if any, third-party processors have access to the data, please see our Data Map. The following summarizes the types of information we collect from Modmopolitan visitors:

  1. Information You Provide to Us:
  2. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way (e.g. via e-mail, fax, etc.). You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our features.
  • Registration: In order for you to use some Modmopolitan services, such as viewing order history and saving custom designs, you must complete a registration form. As part of this registration form, we require you to provide certain personal information, such as your email address and to select a unique screen name that will be used to identify you throughout the site.
  • Profile: To allow you to express yourself more creatively, we may enable you to provide additional information, such as a bio, favorite links, and profiles on other sites. In addition, you may choose to include photos of yourself in your profile. As indicated below, in the section titled "Sharing Your Information", you can control how your information is displayed and used within the Modmopolitan website.
  • Purchases: If you purchase materials or other products or services from us, we will collect and use your shipping address, billing address, and phone number and credit card or other payment information to facilitate your purchases through our website. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt the data you provide to us while placing an order with us online. In addition to encrypting your credit card information while it is transmitted to our payment gateway, for your security, we do not store credit card information in our database.

  1. Automatic Information:
  • We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Modmopolitan and its agents and third party providers (identified in the Data Map) automatically receive and record certain "traffic data" on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, the page you requested, how long you visit a page, how many times you visit a page, information you search for, browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your request. Modmopolitan uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends, monitor compliance with its Terms of Service, improve its service and administer the website.
  • Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. Additionally, Modmopolitan may use third-party cookies, such as Google advertising cookies or similar Google anonymous identifiers to receive analytics regarding use of the website. Modmopolitan does not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or e-mail address is. We may use cookies to automatically remember who you are when you next visit our website, to perform analytics, provide a custom, personalized experience on our website and monitor the success of marketing or promotional campaigns and aggregate metrics.
  • The "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. You may opt-out of the analytics provided by use of the Google advertising cookies by installing an add-on to your web browser available at We recommend that you leave the cookies activated because cookies allow you to use our site - and others - as designed.
  • We have no access to, or control over, cookies stored on your computer by other third parties.
  • Modmopolitan may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed. This includes Profile pages.
  • Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While Modmopolitan will not be able to provide the experience we hope to provide if we cannot recognize you, we encourage you to be aware that these programs are available.
  • Modmopolitan may use cookie data and certain pseudoanonymized data about use of the Modmopolitan website and services to improve the quality and design of our website and services and we may track and analyze user preferences and trends to create new functions, promotions and services for the Modmopolitan website. We may provide aggregated and statistical data about our users and use of our website and services to third parties for such purposes as Modmopolitan may deem appropriate from time to time.

Email Communications

Except as expressly set forth herein, we will never provide your email address to an unaffiliated third party without your explicit permission, but we may use third party service providers who work on behalf of or with Modmopolitan to provide services to you, which third parties may be granted access to your email address and other information in order to provide the services. For example, we use MailChimp, a third-party service, to maintain and administer our email list. We require that these parties agree to use such information solely for the purposes of providing Modmopolitan’s services, that they take adequate measures to protect the security of the information, and we use reasonable efforts to limit their use or access to such information.

Modmopolitan may send out emails with news, products, offers, surveys or promotions. You may also receive notification emails from Modmopolitan that inform you of actions (e.g. message notifications or when your design sells) that have been performed on the site. If you do not want to receive email from us, please visit the Email Preferences section of your Profile and/or follow the instructions contained in the unwanted e-mail message. However, please note that in all cases you will continue to receive all system emails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords or order confirmation emails) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.
