Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by this website, and is contractually agreed to by each Artist.  The policy covers the following areas:

bullet What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website
bullet how it is used and with whom it may be shared
bullet What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data
bullet The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information
bullet How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site.  We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you.  We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us.  We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.   In this case, all information will be shared by the appropriate Artist.  We require the Artist to comply with this Privacy Policy.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this Privacy Policy.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time.  You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

bullet See what data we have about you, if any.
bullet Change/correct any data we have about you.
bullet Have us delete any data we have about you.
bullet Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

We take precautions to protect your information.  When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

We request information from you on our order form.  To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date).  This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders.  If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.

Wherever we collect the sensitive information described above, that information is encrypted and transmitted to the credit card transaction server in a secure way.  You can verify the encryption process used to transmit the sensitive information by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. 

Your credit card number and expiration date never comes to our website, and therefore is not stored by us or reviewed by us, and thus cannot be stolen from us and misused.  Even when we review orders via our transaction gateway, this information is not provided to us: we must rely on the authorized transaction number for any adjustments to the financial transaction, such as refunds for returned orders.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline.  This information includes all order information, including address, email, and phone number you included on the order form, and does not include credit card information, as explained above.  Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) and the Artist who fulfills the order are granted access to this information.  The artist has signed an agreement requiring their compliance with this Policy.  Finally, the computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, behind both hardware and software firewalls, and protected by anti-virus software.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at 775-782-9662 or via email.
