Your privacy is important

This Privacy Policy describes how Development Signs collects, processes and handles your Personal Information.

Development Signs is committed to protecting your Personal Information. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, protect, and disclose your Personal Information. It also contains information on how you can access and have it amended, as well as who you can contact should you have an inquiry or complaint. 

Personal Information we collect

The types of Personal and related Information we collect depends on the product or service you receive from us. We provide information to enable you to order, monitor and request the removal of real estate signs. We may ask you for:

  • Your name, phone number, street and email address
  • Demographic information, such as where you own, lease or are purchasing or letting a property and how you heard about us

Where clients are corporations, they may provide us with Personal Information about different contact persons within that corporation including name, job title, and contact information. 

Personal Information: Why we collect it

We may collect, store and process personal and related information to respond to inquiries, and – unless you have let us know that you do not want us to do this - to provide you with information about other products and services that we offer from time to time (direct marketing). 

Personal Information: How we collect it

We will collect Personal Information directly from you, unless it is unreasonable or impracticable to do so. The Personal Information and related information we collect may be captured from a variety of sources including, but not limited to:

direct contact with us or use of our website

registrations / applications to receive products or services.

While some contacts with us such as general enquiries may be responded to, we cannot assist with advice for you without gathering certain information. 

Use of and access to your Personal Information by others

Generally, we will not make the Personal Information gathered using our products and services available to anyone outside Development Signs - except as agreed or instructed by you or where required by or permitted by Law.
