We only send text support and offers to customers who have specifically opten in to receiving it. That opt-in typically happens through the course of checking out on arxtecdesign.com—there is a checkbox underneath the field where you enter your phone number. If you check the opt-in box, but do not complete checkout, you may receive a text message from us asking if we can assist with your incomplete purchase.
We also have a “live text” service that sometimes runs on arxtecdesign.com. When we’re running this service, we’ll display a phone number on our website that customers can text for support. If you text that number, you’ll first be asked to opt-in to receiving text messages from us.
On rare occasions, we may send out a text message offer or update to some or all customers who have opted in to receive text messages.
You can unsubscribe from receiving text messages at any time, simply by replying “STOP” to one of our text messages. When you do, you’ll receive one more text confirming that you have unsubscribed.
WEBSITE A/B TESTING (CONVERT & HOTJAR)
We’re always trying to make our website a better experience for customers. To do this, we use third party tools called Convert and Hotjar to run A/B tests. During an A/B test, we split our website visitors into 2 groups and show each group a different page design. We use these tools to determine which group of customers was best able to accomplish their goals on our site. The winning page design is then implemented for 100% of website visitors. Our A/B testing and analytical tools do not collect or retain personally identifiable information. Instead, they collect and retain pages you visit on our website, things you click on, mouse movements, and how far down you scroll.
You can opt out of Convert & Hotjar cookies by turning off “Performance Cookies” in your Cookies Settings. When you do this, you will not longer be taking part in website A/B testing.
