This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for Darlene C. Almeda, visual artist, and her website; http://www.photoscapes.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by her website, except where stated otherwise. It will notify you of the following:
- What information I collect;
- With whom it is shared;
- How it can be corrected;
- How it is secured;
- How policy changes will be communicated; and
- How to address concerns over misuse of personal data.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
I am the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I can only access/collect the information you voluntarily give me via email or other direct contacts. I will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
I will use your information to explain why you contacted me. I will not share your information with any third party outside of my organization other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g., to ship an order.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contact with me at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting me via the Contact page on my website:
- See what data I have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data I have about you.
- Have me delete any data I have about you.
- Express any concern you have about my use of your data.
To use this website, a user must first complete the registration form. A user must give certain information (such as name and email address) during registration. This information is used to contact you about the products/services on my site where you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.
I request information from you on my order form. To buy from me, you must provide contact information. My registry database uses this information for billing, shipping, and owner registration. If I have trouble processing an order, I’ll use this information to contact you.
I use an outside shipping company to ship orders and PayPal for credit card processing. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
I take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected online and offline.
I do not collect credit card data as this service is provided through PayPal. PayPal ensures your information is encrypted and securely transmitted to them. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or “HTTPS” at the beginning of the web page’s address.
I protect your information offline as my employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g., order fulfillment or shipping preparation) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers I store personally identifiable information are kept securely.
I use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help me improve your access to my site and identify repeat visitors. For instance, when I use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in with a password more than once, saving time on my site. Cookies can also enable me to track and target the interests of my users to enhance their experience on my site. The cookie usage is not linked to any personally identifiable information on my site.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for such other sites’ content or privacy practices. I encourage my users to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Notification of Changes
Other Provisions as Required by Law
Due to laws, international treaties, or industry practices, numerous other provisions and practices may be required. It is up to you to determine what additional practices must be followed and what additional disclosures are required.
