|Siti's Gallery understands that your trust is our most important asset. We take
the protection and proper use of your personal information seriously and are committed
to protecting your personal information in our possession. In order to preserve
your trust, we want you to understand what personally identifiable or personal
information we may collect from you when you visit our website, how we use such
information, and the choices you have regarding our use of this information.
Protect Your Personal Information
Recently, there has been an increase in the number of websites and emails that
try to lure customers into providing personal information. Siti's Gallery will
never ask you to provide personal information in an email. Never send personal
or financial information via internet email.
In this policy, the words "we", "our", and "us" refer to Siti's Gallery (www.sitisgallery.com)
and the phrases "personally identifiable information" or "personal information"
mean any information by which you can be identified or contacted, such as your
name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc.
Categories of Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
We collect personally identifiable information, as defined above, from you when
you register on our website, request a catalog, place an order with us, subscribe
to Siti's Gallery E-mail Updates (our e-mail newsletter), through communications
with you, or through the Siti's Gallery family of companies. We may also collect
personal information about you from other third parties, such as demographic firms,
to make our future marketing efforts more efficient.
How We Use Your Information
We use your personal information that we collect to conduct our business and to
provide you with the best possible products and services. To best serve you, we
may share your personally identifiable information with other members of the Siti's
Gallery family of companies and with service providers that provide support services
to us or that help us market our products and services. Service providers, third
parties who perform services on our behalf, are contractually restricted from
using your information in any manner other than in helping us to provide you with
the products and services available from Siti's Gallery. We may also, in certain
instances, disclose your personally identifiable information when we have reason
to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action to
protect your rights or the rights of Siti's Gallery or others. We may also disclose
your personally identifiable information when we believe it is required by law.
Cookies and Web Beacons
beacons to distinguish you from other visitors, track your IP address and usage
of our site, and to identify the name of the Web site from which you linked to
Siti's Gallery. This information is used for fulfilling contracts with our business
partners, and to help us serve you better by improving our website design, as
well as our products, services, and promotions. We do not otherwise track any
information about your use of other websites. Non-personally identifiable information
obtained through cookies and web beacons may be shared with or obtained by service
providers on our behalf. A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard
drive of your computer when you visit a website. A "session cookie" expires immediately
when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). A "persistent cookie" stores
information on the hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same
website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. A web beacon
is a small string of code that represents a clear graphic image and is used in
conjunction with a cookie. When you visit our website, we may use both a session
and a persistent cookie. This cookie may contain information (such as a unique
user ID) that is used to track your usage of our website and in some cases, your
email address. Your email address is only saved in your cookie if you register
with us. A web beacon allows us to capture certain additional types of information
about a visitor's actions on a web site, such as a visitor's cookie number, the
time, date duration and number of page views, a description of the page where
the Web beacon is placed, and details about any items that were purchased. If
you register with us, your cookie allows us to recognize you when you return to
our website and provides you with access to your account information. If you save
maintain information about your use of our website. If you have not saved your
information with or ordered from us, we may monitor and maintain information about
your use of our website in a manner that does not identify you. You can disable
cookies at any time by using your browser options; however, if you turn off cookies,
we will not be able to track your order or enable you to make a purchase from
our website. In addition, we will not be able to recognize you as a registered
user to allow you access to your account information.
