PRIVACY POLICY

 

WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION: When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system. Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.

 

YOUR CONSENT: When you log onto the website, provide personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting your personal information and using it for that specific reason only.

 

If we ask for your personal information for any other reason, for example, to put you on our mailing list so we can send you marketing emails, we either ask you directly for your consent, or imply that you consented and provide you with an opportunity to say no by, for example, unsubscribing. 

But, don’t worry.  After opting in, you can always change your mind and withdraw your consent: consent to contact you; consent to continue collecting, using or disclosing your information, etc., by emailing us at Sales@GaylePrintz.com

 

We may be compelled to disclose your personal information if:

(a) you violate the Terms and Conditions posted on our website, or

(b) if we are required to by law.

 

WIX: Our online store is hosted by WIX.COM. WIX provides us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell my paintings to you. Your data is stored through WIX data storage, databases and the general WIX application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

 

Payment: If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Wix stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that, your information is deleted. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. For more insight, you may also want to read the WIX Terms of Service or Privacy Statement.

 

Payment and Third-Party Links: Third-party links on this site may direct you to third-party websites that are not affiliated with us. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating the content or accuracy and we assume no liability or responsibility for any third-party materials or websites, or for any other materials, products, or services of third-parties. We are not liable for any harm or damages related to the purchase or use of goods, services, resources, content, or any other transactions made in connection with any third-party websites. Please review carefully the third-party's policies and practices and make sure you understand them before you engage in any transaction. Complaints, claims, concerns, or questions regarding third-party products should be directed to the third-party. 

 

In general, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they providing. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to information we are required to provide for all of your purchases. For these providers, we recommend you read their privacy policies so you can understand how outside providers will use your personal information. In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in, or have facilities located in, a different jurisdiction than ours or yours. Therefore, should you elect to conduct a transaction involving services by a third-party service provider, the privacy of your information may become governed by the laws of a  different jurisdiction. For example, if you are located in France and your transaction is processed by payment through a third-party gateway located in the United States, personal information used to complete your transaction may be subject to disclosure under U.S. law, including U.S. Copyright Law and the U.S. Patriot Act. Once you leave GaylePrintz.com, or are redirected to a third-party website to complete your transaction, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our Terms and Conditions. You are subject to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use of Service of the third-party website to which you are redirected. 

 

Links:  When you click on the links in our store, the link may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

 

Security: To protect your personal information, we use reasonable care and follow industry standards to ensure your personal information is properly safeguarded. We try to make sure it is not accessed, disclosed, lost, misused, altered, or destroyed. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

Until you do, when you visit most storefronts, you will be collecting cookies galore. Due to the complexity of the Internet, I can’t be sure what programs will put cookies on your browser by visiting my site. I do know that if you clear your cache, browser and history on a regular basis, you have more hope of protecting your own privacy. I also think it helps to unsubscribe to the following cookie monsters that we believe GaylePrintz.com may be tied into.  To the best of my knowledge, the following third party providers this site may tie into are as follows: I list them so, if you know how and want to, you can opt out of their cookies:
