Once you choose to provide us personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified), you can be assured that it will only be used to support your customer relationship with MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts.

This statement regarding the privacy of the personally identifiable information you provide online covers the five foundation principles of fair information: Awareness, Choice, Accuracy & Access, Security, and Oversight.

Awareness

To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and from the bottom of every MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts.com, its subsidiaries' and affiliates' web pages.

What we collect

In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our products and services (including registration), we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our products, and more detailed contact preferences. Some electronic newsletters record anonymous data about articles you have expressed interest in.

How we use it

MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back to you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our web sites for you. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing, fraud protection, and are not retained for other purposes.

From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.

Who we share it with

MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with other MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described in "how we use it". Such MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts entities and/or business partners, including those in the United States and/or any other countries, are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate confidentiality agreements.

Data collected online may also be combined with information you provide when you register your ownership of MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts products.

Children's Privacy Protection MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts takes special care to protect the privacy needs of children under the age of 13 and encourages parents to be an active participant in their child's online activities and interests. We abide by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requirements. The vast majority of MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts web sites do not target and are not intended for children under the age of 13. MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts web sites that do not target children will not knowingly collect data from them.

Choice

MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a choice. As previously stated, we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us and we will do everything we can to honor such requests. Local country laws and policies are applied where they differ from those in the U.S.

Your permission is always secured first, should we ever share your information with third parties that are not acting on our behalf and governed by our privacy policy. For example, as part of MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts's commitment to offering you choice, we enable you to make online purchases directly from us or through our resellers. When you choose our resellers, we inform you that your registration and shopping basket data is being transferred to the reseller you selected. This notice is important because when you choose to make online purchases through our resellers, use of your registration and shopping basket data by the reseller is then governed by their privacy policy. Local country laws and policies are applied where they differ from those in the U.S.

How MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts uses cookies

A cookie is a piece of text asking permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, then your browser adds the text in a small file. The purpose of a cookie is to help us analyze web traffic or let us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow a web application to respond to you as an individual. By gathering and remembering information about your preferences, the web application can tailor its operation to your needs, likes and dislikes. For example, when you visit an electronic store, a cookie makes it easy to shop by allowing you to drop things into a shopping cart; the cart itself is not the cookie, the cookie is placed on your hard drive and keeps track of your cart versus others' in use at the same time.

MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts uses traffic log cookies to identify what pages are being used and which ones aren't. This helps us aggregate and analyze data about web page traffic and make improvements to MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts.com web sites to better meet customer needs. In this case, MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts uses this information only for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. That is the case of many of our support and information-sharing pages and forums. Denial of a traffic log cookie should not prevent you from using one of these sites.

A few MyArts or MyARTSite.Biz web sites use temporary cookies as part of the customer web navigation experience, tracking unique IDs for that particular web site session only. Examples are product registration sites. This cookie, by itself, only tells us that a previous MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts.com visitor has returned. If you deny the cookie, you can still use the site anonymously. At MyARTSite.Biz or MyArtsshopping.com, you will receive a persistent cookie. Customers can browse with cookies turned off, but you can only purchase if you accept the cookie. The MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts InfoAgent subscription service site requires enabling cookies to subscribe to the free newsletters offered through this service.MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts InfoAgent uses cookie technology to assign and place an identifier unique only to you, placed on your computer. When you register for the subscription service, it ensures that you are accurately identified and linked with your registration data. The InfoAgent also uses a temporary "authentication" cookie to assure secure access to your personal information by you alone (completed with user name and password).

Overall, cookies help us give you a better web site to use, by letting us monitor what's working and what isn't through site traffic analysis. MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts wants to be sure you understand that accepting a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you, other than the data you chose to share with us. This practice is strictly enforced. We know that a lot of people have concerns about cookies, but in talking with many of our customers, we believe that the benefit we both gain from their proper use is worthwhile. We value the relationships we have with our customers, so we respect these concerns. MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts works to continuously improve the MyARTSite.Biz or MyArts.com web experience and personal data privacy policy and practices.

You may set your web browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) to notify you of cookie placement requests or decline cookies completely. You can delete the files that contains cookies; those files are stored as part of your internet browser.
