Protecting your privacy is important to us. We hope the following statement will help you understand how we collect, use, and protect the personal information you share with us on our Web Site.
Security of Your Information
Personal information which you share with us in this site is encoded using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, a powerful encryption protocol that protects data as it travels over the Internet. All Internet commerce transactions we process are issued a digital certificate by Verisign, Inc., which ensures your data can only be read by our e-commerce processor, Publishers Art. As long as your browser shows its secure mode symbol, like a key or closed lock, your information will be transmitted safely. For enhanced security, we recommend using either Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.0 or higher, both of which enable SSl.
Collection of Your Information
When you browse our web site, you do so anonymously. Personal information associated with your name - including your E-mail address - is not collected unless you purchase from the site, in which case we'll keep your information in order to communicate new product offerings and events. Your browser provides us with information automatically, like the type of computer and operating system you are using. The IP address of the computer you use at the time you browse (the Internet address of your computer) is logged to give us an idea of which parts of our web site you visit and how long you spend there. There are times that we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, including your E-mail address and possibly your postal address, for purposes such as correspondence, site registration, making a purchase, registering for a new product, etc. Credit card numbers are only used for processing payment and are not used for other purposes. We may utilize a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how the site is used.
