Maki Privacy Policy

Welcome to Maki, a new, simple app that provides an easy way to get your design mock-ups and final website to match up. The Maki site and service ("Service" or "Maki") is owned and operated by Bearded Studio, LLC, a Pennsylvania limited liability company, referred to throughout this Privacy Policy as "Bearded", "we", "us", or "our". Any references to "you" or "your" refer to both you and any person on whose behalf you act, if any.

This Privacy Policy tells you about Bearded's policies and practice for the collection, use and disclosure of information we collect about you through our website and Services, including the website (the "Site"). By using our Site and Services, you agree to the terms of the Privacy Policy and you consent to the processing of information about you as described here.

Information we collect

Information we collect when you use our Site and Services

We may collect information about the way you interact with our Site, Services, and content, including computer, browser and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from our Site, IP address and standard web log information.

In addition, files that you voluntarily upload to Maki in order to use the Service may contain personally identifiable information. Also, you may send us biographical information, correspondence, testimonials, photos, blog comments, writings, customer satisfaction surveys or customer service communications.

How we use information

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to create a customized experience for you on the Site. In addition, we may also use the information we collect to:

How we share information

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements (for example, a court order or subpoena) or in the good faith belief that disclosure is legally required, enforce our policies, establish or exercise our legal rights, or protect anyone's rights, property or safety.

We may also share your personal information with other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity or sell assets. Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your personal information. If your personal information will be used contrary to this policy, you will receive prior notice.

Cookies and web beacons

When you first use our Site and Services, Maki may send a cookie to your computer that identifies you as a unique user. We may use session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to store your preferences, identify you and maintain your signed-in status, and provide you with a more personal and interactive experience. You can set your browser to refuse cookies or delete persistent cookies by following your browser's help instructions. If you choose to disable cookies, some of our Services may not work properly. We work with companies who may use cookies and web beacons to collect anonymous information that helps us measure and improve our content effectiveness.


We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others or other sites throughout the internet (including the ones we link to), different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Bearded does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Privacy Policy Updates

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this Site and notify you of material changes with an alert on the Site or a communication to you. Changes take effect immediately after they are posted to the Site. This policy was last updated effective July 28, 2010.
