We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Art Inspires You and its authorized agents (e.g. Google Analytics) automatically receive and record certain “traffic data” on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.

This is anonymized data and does not involve collecting any of your personal information.
The Website may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed.
a. Third party links: Third parties are responsible for their own privacy policies; we are not responsible for outside policies or practices. Learn more in our Terms (section 12).
The “help” portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. Please note, however, that if your browser does not accept cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of some of our features.
c. Security: Art Inspires You is hosted on a secure server with an SSL certificate, which generates the ‘s’ in https:// at the beginning of The Website address; you often see this in online payment form URLs, and other secure sites. This site maintains security measures to ensure your personal information is safe. However, no exchange over the internet is 100% guaranteed to be protected. You acknowledge that any information submitted through The Website could be accessed by a third-party and shared without our knowledge or permission, and you therefore release Art Inspires You from any blame, claims and/or liability arising from such situation.

Email Communications (“The Newsletter”)
Art Inspires You may send out e-mails with related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions via optional newsletter (i.e. signing-up for The Newsletter is optional).
