We deeply care about privacy and we’ll go to great lengths to protect it. Here we explain what kind of personal information we collect, why and when we collect it, how we use it and what we do to make keep it secure.
Who we are
H Beier Design is the legal name for Harbor Type, a graphic design and software development company based in Porto Alegre, Brazil, registered under the CNPJ 21.252.725/0001-47.

How we collect information
We collect information about you during the checkout process, when you choose to create an account on our website, or if you choose to receive our newsletter.
The information we collect from you
The information we collect includes your name or business name, email address, billing and shipping addresses, IP address and fonts purchased. We collect this information so we can process your orders. We do not collect credit card information. All payments are processed through PayPal and Mercado Pago, depending on the currency.
We don’t like being tracked, so why would you? We’ve been personally using blocking extensions like Ghostery for years. Knowing your browsing habits will not make us design better fonts, that’s why we do not track users for analytics.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
When you access the website, we will automatically try to determine the country you’re in using your IP address. This is not a precise process. If we think you are located in Brazil, the currency will be set to Brazilian Reais. Otherwise, it will fallback to US dollars. You can manually change the active currency while on the cart page. This cookie will expire after three hours.
You may globally disable cookies using your browser’s preferences or a third-party extension, however this website will not function properly and you will not be able to purchase or download our fonts.
