If you elect not to provide us with the personal information requested, we may not be able to respond to your inquiry, consider your application to be a Pro Artist or Retailer, or process your order.

We also may collect and use non-personal information about your use of our website, such as your Internet (IP) address, type of browser, access times and referring website. In addition, we may track general information about traffic on our websites.

How We Use Collected Information:

We use the personal information that we collect for the stated purpose, e.g., if we collect information in connection with an application to become a Pro Artist or Retailer or in connection with an order, we use the information to review the application or to fulfill and invoice the order. We may also use your personally identifiable information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, analyze the effectiveness of our services or our website (or portions of our website) and recommend customized products, services, web pages or other content to you. In addition, we may use the information that we collect to provide additional information to you or to improve your user experience. For example, we may publish and distribute email announcements or newsletters to our registered users or we may contact you with announcements regarding special offers or new products or services or new features available from us.

We use non-personal information about web visitors and website traffic to assess the performance of our websites and improve your website experience.

In general, except as stated at the time we request your information, we will not sell, share or rent your personal information with third parties. Please note, however, that we may share your information with one or more of our partners or retailers if you request information about our products and services and those products or services are marketed through our partner or retailer arrangements. In addition, we may share your information with outside contractors (including credit card processors) who provide marketing, order fulfillment, shipping, billing or support services for us. Any third party receiving your information from us is required to hold such information in confidence and in accordance with applicable law and to use such information only for the stated purpose for which it was provided. We may also use and share aggregated information about browsing traffic to and from the websites of our partners and retailers and other product-identifying information to track and make commission payments to our partners and retailers.

If we merge with another company or if our company (or all or substantially all of our assets) are acquired, the acquirer will own the personal information that we have collected, but such ownership shall be subject to the terms of this privacy statement.
