Privacy Policy

Your privacy is paramount to us.
(and to our attorneys as well!)

We are Artistic Fuel!

 

We respect your privacy and are committed to keeping secure any information we obtain from you or about you. This Privacy Policy describes our practices with respect to your Personal Information (defined below). But this Privacy Policy does not apply to content that we process on behalf of customers of our business offerings. Our use of that data is governed by our customer agreements covering the access to and use of those offerings. 

In this Privacy Policy, we are referred to sometimes as “we,” “our,” or “us,” and sometimes as “Artistic Fuel.” And when we speak of “Artistic Fuel,” “we,” “our,” or “us,” we mean Artistic Fuel, LLC, and its affiliates.

Certain capitalized terms are used, but not defined, in this Privacy Policy. Those terms have the same meanings as in the Terms of Service Agreement (“TOU Agreement”) you entered into with us when you first used or accessed Our Services.  (Agreement is HERE)

There are many different ways you can use Our Services. You can search for and share information, communicate with other people, or create new content. When you share information with us (for example, by creating an Artistic Fuel account), we can make those services better by helping you connect with other people and share Your Content with others quicker and easier. 

As you use Our Services, we want you to understand how we use the information you provide and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, store, share, and use information and your choices about privacy when you use Our Services. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to be informed about our privacy practices. 

BY USING, VISITING, BROWSING, OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OUR WEBSITE OR APP OR USING OUR SERVICES YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO IT, DO NOT ACCESS OUR WEBSITE OR APP OR USE OUR SERVICES.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is a part of the TOU Agreement (which can be viewed at www.artisticfuel.com). By using or accessing Our Services, you agree that your Personal Information may be collected, stored, shared, and used as described in this Privacy Policy and the TOU Agreement. By accessing or using Our Services, you also consent to the collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information, as discussed in this Privacy Policy. You may withdraw your consent at any time in writing; however, that does not negate our right to process your data prior to when we receive your written withdrawal.

 
PERSONAL INFORMATION

As used in this Privacy Policy, the term “Personal Information” means information that by itself can be used to identify or contact a specific person (for example, the person’s name, email address, postal address, or phone number), but Personal Information does not include information that has been aggregated or made anonymous so that by itself it no longer identifies (and can no longer reasonably be used to contact) a specific person.

 
WHEN THIS PRIVACY POLICY APPLIES

This Privacy Policy applies to all of Our Services, regardless of how and to what extent you use them and regardless of whether you do or do not register for an Artistic Fuel account or whether you do or do not subscribe for a Personal+ membership. But this Privacy Policy only applies to how we collect, store, share, and use information; it does not apply to any entity that we do not own or control or that is under common control with us or to any person we do not employ or manage. If, at any time during the course of accessing or using Our Services, you are directed to a third-party site, you understand and agree that the policies of that third-party site will govern.

 
TYPES OF INFORMATION WE PROCESS

Information You Give Us.  We may collect the Personal Information you provide or otherwise make available to us when you access or use Our Services (such as when we require you to sign up for an Artistic Fuel account or update your account or user profile information). If you want to take full advantage of the sharing features Our Services offer, we might also ask you to create a publicly visible profile, which may include your name and photograph. You may also be asked to provided certain Personal Information (a) when you access or use Our Services to search for or view artwork or other items; follow artists, galleries, institutions or other users; place bids in an auction; or otherwise perform transactions or communicate with other users; or (b) when you link your Artistic Fuel account to an account you maintain on another social media service, in which case we may obtain your username on that other service and other information you make publicly available through that other service; or (c) when you communicate with us.

Information From Your Use Of Our Services.  We may automatically collect certain information about how you access or use Our Services. By using Our Services, you consent to the collection of that information. Examples of that information include device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information, which may include your phone number); log-in information (such as your search queries); telephone log information (such as your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information, and types of calls); internet protocol address; system activity; hardware settings; browser type and language; the date and time of your request; the referral URL; and cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Artistic Fuel account.

Location Storage.  We may collect and store information (including Personal Information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

 

Cookies And Anonymous Identifiers.  We may use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit an Artistic Fuel service, which may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. We may also use cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with services we offer to third-parties (such as advertising services or Artistic Fuel features that may appear on other sites). We may also use third-party service providers (such as analytics and advertising providers) who may use cookies and similar technologies to help operate their services. Your browser may have settings that let you decline cookies, but please understand that some of Our Services may not be available if you decline cookies. For more information about cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies, and how they are used, please see Cookie Policy below.

Information From Other Users.  If you use Our Services to communicate with other users or perform transactions with other users, we may obtain information or feedback from them about their interaction with you (for example, whether you were responsive to their communications or completed a transaction with them). Also, if users share content through Our Services that contain information about you, we will also receive that information. 

Information From Other Sources.  We may obtain information about you from certain third parties (such as other companies with which we jointly offer services or conduct promotional events), third-party service providers, credit bureaus, or other sources. This information may include demographic information, contact information, open data, publicly available data, and credit check information. We may use this information for legitimate business purposes (such as the performance of a contract, customer support, fraud prevention, and credit-related decisions in connection with Our Services).

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHY COLLECT IT

The information we collect helps us provide, maintain, protect, and improve Our Services; develop new products and services; provide customer support; and make Our Services more efficient for you and other users.

We may use the name you provide for your Artistic Fuel profile across all of Our Services that require an Artistic Fuel account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Artistic Fuel account so that you are represented consistently across all of Our Services. If other users already have your email address or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Artistic Fuel Profile information, such as your name and photograph.

When you contact us, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about Our Services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, such as pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of Our Services. When showing you tailored advertisements, we will not associate a cookie or anonymous identifier with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or health.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

TRANSPARENCY AND CHOICE

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can review and control certain types of information tied to your Artistic Fuel Account by using the Artistic Fuel Dashboard to view and edit advertising preferences (such as which categories might interest you); by opting out of certain advertising services; by viewing and adjusting how your Artistic Fuel profile appears to others; and by controlling who you share information with.

You may also set your browser to block cookies (including cookies associated with Our Services) or to let you know when we are setting a cookie. However, it is important to remember that Our Services may not function properly if you disable cookies. 

We want you to know why we collect your Personal Information so that you may be able to make informed decisions regarding your use of Our Services. In addition to the other uses of your Personal Information described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, we may use the information we obtain from or about you to provide Our Services to you, including new services we develop later; to provide you with customer support; to facilitate your communications or transactions with us or with other users; to operate, improve, and customize Our Services, content, and marketing; to understand how you use and interact with Our Services and the products, services, and content of others; to develop and display more customized content and advertising to you on or off Our Services; to promote and maintain a trusted, safer, and more reliable environment on Our Services (for example, to help detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; conduct investigations or risk assessments; or verify actions taken by you or associated with your account); to contact you (by email, postal mail, telephone, mobile devices, or SMS text message, or as otherwise authorized by you) in order to address issues with your Artistic Fuel account or your use of Our Services, collect fees, send you updates about the Services or our policies, or for other purposes permitted by law; to contact you (by email, postal mail, telephone, mobile devices, or SMS text message, or as otherwise authorized by you) in order to send you marketing communications, promotional messages, and offers about Our Services and the products and services of others; to facilitate your participation in contests, sweepstakes, and other promotional events sponsored or conducted by us or by others in conjunction with us; to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce the TOU Agreement or any other Artistic Fuel policies or agreements with users; to perform other functions that are described when the information is collected or requested; or for other purposes with your prior consent.

COMMUNICATION PREFERENCES

We provide registered users with settings on Our Services to control whether they receive certain communications from us. If you do not want to receive marketing emails from us, you can unsubscribe by following the unsubscribe link in the email you receive, changing your preferences in your profile and account settings (if you have registered for an Artistic Fuel account), or emailing us. Please be aware that opt out requests may take up to five business days to process, and you may not be able to opt out of receiving certain communications from us (such as emails about your account, your relationship with us, or your transactions). Unsubscribing from receiving emails we send you may result in your having a less robust experience with Our Services.

ACCOUNTS AND USER PROFILES

Registration, Access, And Records.  To register for an Artistic Fuel account, you will need to provide your full name and a valid email address. If you have received our permission to use Our Services as a business, you may need to provide additional information. If you have an Artistic Fuel account, you may access, add, remove, or update certain information about you in your profile and account settings. It is your responsibility to update your Personal Information to keep it accurate and current.

 

When you update your account or profile information, we may keep a record of the unrevised information for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you wish to cancel your account, you may do so by using the tools provided in your profile and account settings, subject to the TOU Agreement and any other agreements between you and us. If you terminate your account, we may keep a record of any or all information associated with you or your account for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy (as required or permitted by law), as well as specific account data that includes your Personal Information. Certain other records (such as settings and collector profiles) will be removed upon termination. For further information, please contact us at info@artisticfuel.com.

Profile And Account Information. 

 

To make Our Services more interactive, certain information about your user profile or account may be made accessible to other users on or through Our Services, as indicated in your user profile and account settings on Our Services, or as otherwise indicated by us when you use certain of Our Services. For example, if your public profile is enabled in your settings, your name and certain information that you may enter in your user profile (such as your biography, location, and website) will be visible to other users of Our Services. Our Services may include settings to control how certain user profile or account information is shared with other users on or through Our Services. You should check your user profile and account settings regularly to be informed of your current choices. Public information on Our Services may be indexed by third-party search engines and accessible by or through them. For further information, please contact us at info@artisticfuel.com.

Data Retention.  We will keep and use your data, as described in this Privacy Policy, for as long as (a) your account is in use, open, or active; (b) is necessary to comply with applicable tax, legal, or other regulatory requirements; and (c) is necessary to protect and defend against potential legal claims. If you would like to request the deletion of your personally identifiable information or request that it be returned to you, please contact us at info@artisticfuel.com. Please understand that by deleting your data from our site you will no longer be able to use Our Services. We will retain your anonymized, aggregated, depersonalized data after it has been deleted from our site.

“FAVORITES” AND “FOLLOWS”

Our Services may include features that enable you to designate your “favorite” artists, designers, or other creators; artwork and other items or categories of artwork; or other items. Our Services may also include features that enable you to “follow” galleries, institutions, and other users, artists, designers, and creators; categories of artwork; or other items. If your public profile is enabled, other users may also be able to follow you, and the number of users that follow you may be visible to other users of Our Services. You may be able to share, or choose not to share, certain information about your “favorites,” “follows,” or “followers” on or through Our Services, as indicated by us in connection with these features or in your profile and account settings. If you enable those designations, we may include you in email communications regarding them. If you would like to opt out of receiving those emails, please follow the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the relevant email or visit your account profile to update your email settings. For further information regarding opt-outs, please contact us at info@artisticfuel.com.

YOUR USER CONTENT

As described in the TOU Agreement, you may be able to provide Your Content on or through Our Services. When you post or publish Your Content on Our Services, any information contained in Your Content (including information in images or videos) becomes publicly accessible on Our Services and may be indexed by and accessible through third-party search engines, and we and other users may access and use Your Content, as described in the TOU Agreement. This applies even if you or someone else also provides the information to us by other means and our use of the information might have been more limited under this Privacy Policy if the information was only provided to us by those other means. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the right to share any information about others that you share with us or with others.

USER COMMUNICATIONS

Connecting With Other Users.  We strive to provide a platform and marketplace where users can discover and engage with a wide range of artwork, design, and other items from around the world, including items from the various galleries, institutions, and others that use Our Services as exhibitors or sellers. To help make this happen, Our Services may include features (such as messaging tools and email addresses hosted on Our Services) that could enable you to contact and communicate with other users. For example, when a seller lists an artwork or other item on Our Services, Our Services could enable you to contact that seller about that item or other items that may be available, although we do not offer that service at this time.

Sharing Information With Other Users.  Our Services let you share information with others. When you use Our Services to contact another user or perform a transaction with another user (such as a gallery), that other user may obtain from us your name, email address, and other contact information to facilitate communications and transactions or for their marketing purposes. Sometimes these users may be able to obtain additional information about you when you use Our Services to contact them or perform a transaction with them. For example, they may be able to obtain information about your location, interests, and other information, as indicated by us in connection with Our Services, or as otherwise indicated in your profile and account settings. Our Services may include settings that enable you to choose how certain information is shared with other users when you contact them or perform a transaction with them. Please remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, such as Google.

WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Personal Information.  We will only share your Personal Information with others in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy or to which you have otherwise consented in writing. In addition to the other sharing of Personal Information described in this Privacy Policy, we may share your Personal Information with others in the following contexts:

Service Providers.  We may contract with third-party providers to help us provide Our Services or to perform services related to Our Services. Those third-party providers may access your Personal Information as needed to perform their functions for us. Examples include order fulfillment, package delivery, payment processing, bill collection, fraud investigation, email and postal mail administration, customer service assistance, web and mobile data analytics, and server and database hosting services.

We use third parties (including, for example, Google) to gather your data from financial institutions. By using Our Services, you authorize those third-party providers to act on your behalf to access and transmit your personal and financial information from relevant financial institutions according to the terms of those third-party providers’ respective privacy policies and service terms.

Business Transfers.  If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of our assets, your Personal Information may be one of the assets transferred. Should this occur and you have registered for an Artistic Fuel account, we will notify you of the change of ownership by sending an email to the most recent email address you provided us under your Artistic Fuel account.

Legal Purposes.  We may access, preserve, and disclose your Personal Information or other information if we believe that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request (such as search warrants, subpoenas or court orders); enforce the TOU Agreement or any other agreement with users; investigate potential violations; detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; protect and enforce your or any other person’s rights and property; protect and enforce Artistic Fuel’s rights and property; or prevent physical harm to any person.

Affiliates.  We may share your Personal Information with any of our affiliates, which means an entity that controls us, is controlled by us, or is under common control with us. Our affiliates will use your Personal Information we share in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy. 

AGGREGATED AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may aggregate or make anonymous any Personal Information we have obtained in any way from or about you or others so that such information no longer contains any Personal Information. We may use and share any aggregated, anonymous, or other non-personally identifying information for any legitimate business purpose (including, for example, to instruct how to access and use Our Services, and for research, development, statistical, and marketing purposes). If we have anonymized or de-identified any of your Personal Information so that it can no longer be associated with you, we may use that Personal Information for the above purposes indefinitely without further notice to you. 

PAYMENT INFORMATION

If you use our marketplace or register for certain of Our Services, you may need to provide payment information (such as a credit card number, type, and expiration date). We do not store credit card information entered on Our Services. This information is stored by a third-party payment processor, and the use and storage of this information will be subject to the payment processor’s own terms of service and privacy policy. We do receive certain information from the payment processor, including a unique token we associate with you to authorize your purchases, and in certain cases, the last four digits of the credit card number associated with that token in order to help prevent fraud and identity theft. If you do not wish to provide payment information, you will not be able to use certain of Our Services.

OTHER WEBSITES AND SERVICES

Our Services may include links to websites or services we do not own or control, some of which may include links to Our Services. Our Services may also include features that enable you to link your Artistic Fuel account to your account on other social media services. For example, you may be able to sign up for, or sign in to, Our Services through another social media service. Our Services may also include features that enable you to share Your Content or the content of others that is on other websites and social media services. However, these links and features are not an endorsement by us of any other website or service or any of their respective privacy policies or practices. When you visit or use other websites or services, they may collect information from you, including through the use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies. We encourage you to read carefully the privacy policies of those other websites and services.

INTERNATIONAL PROCESSING

Artistic Fuel is headquartered in the United States. Our users (including the galleries and other organizations that use Our Services as exhibitors or sellers), service providers, and other third parties you may interact with in connection with Our Services may be located in the United States or other countries around the world, including countries that may not offer the same level of protection for your Personal Information as that offered in the United States. By accessing or using Our Services in the United States or another country or jurisdiction, you agree that your Personal Information may be transferred and processed in the United States and that other country or jurisdiction.

EU-U.S. AND SWISS-U.S.-PRIVACY SHIELD FRAMEWORKS

Artistic Fuel is a participant in the U.S. Department of Commerce’s EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks (“Privacy Shield Frameworks”). Artistic Fuel complies with the Privacy Shield Frameworks regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Information transferred from the EU, the United Kingdom and Switzerland to the United States in reliance on the respective Privacy Shield Frameworks. If there is any conflict between the provisions of this Privacy Policy and the Privacy Shield Frameworks, the Privacy Shield Frameworks will govern. We will be accountable for the onward transfer to third parties of the Personal Information of EU individuals we receive under the Privacy Shield Frameworks. For more information about the Privacy Shield Frameworks, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield Framework website at www.privacyshield.gov/welcome.

STATE LAW PRIVACY RIGHTS 

Some state privacy laws, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (“VCDPA”), Colorado Privacy Law (“CPL”), Connecticut Data Privacy Act (“CTDPA”), and Utah Consumer Privacy Act (“UCPA”), require specific disclosures to the residents of those states. The purpose of this state privacy law section of our Privacy Policy is to explain how these laws may apply to your Personal Information, and how we deal with your Personal Information in view of these laws. When in this section we refer to the “Consumer Privacy Acts” or to “Protected Residents,” we are referring to the respective privacy rights laws and residents of Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut, and Utah to the extent that any of these laws may be applicable to you. And where we refer to “Protected Information” in this section, it means Protected Information as defined above in this Privacy Policy, unless that definition conflicts with the definition of personal information in the privacy laws of your state of residence, in which event the state law definition will be controlling. 

If you are a Protected Resident, you have a right to know about how we process your Personal Information and what portions of your Personal Information we have collected, as well as the right to request us to correct and delete your Personal information. You may also have a right to opt out of the sale or sharing of your Personal Information and a right not to be discriminated against for exercising your privacy rights. (The VCDPA also provides the right to opt out of certain forms of profiling and targeted advertising.) We do not sell or share Personal Information and do not discriminate in response to privacy rights requests. We also do not use or disclose sensitive Personal Information for any purpose that would require you to exercise a right to limit according to the applicable Consumer Privacy Act of your state of residence.

We provide notice of our privacy practices in this Privacy Policy, which includes what Personal Information is collected, the source of that Personal Information, and the purpose or purposes for its use, as well as whether we disclose that Personal Information and, if so, the categories of third parties to whom we disclose it. If you are a Protected Resident, you can exercise your privacy rights under the applicable Consumer Privacy Act of your state of residence by sending a request to info@artisticfuel.com

To protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, change, or deletion, we may require you to verify your credentials before you can submit a request to know, correct, or delete Personal Information. If you do not have an account with us, or if we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity, we may ask you to provide additional Personal Information and proof of residency for verification. If we cannot verify your identity, we will not provide, correct, or delete your Personal Information.

You may submit a rights request through an authorized agent. If you do so, the agent must provide us with signed (and, if we require, notarized) written permission to act on your behalf, and you may also be required to independently verify your identity and submit proof to us of your residency. Authorized agent requests should be submitted to info@artisticfuel.com

CHILDREN’S INFORMATION

Our Services are not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from people in this age group. If you believe we may have collected Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13, please contact us at info@artisticfuel.com. We will investigate any notification and, if appropriate, delete the Personal Information from our systems. If you are 13 or older, but under 18, you must have consent from your parent or guardian to use Our Services. 

SECURITY

Every Artistic Fuel account is protected by a password to help maintain privacy and security. If you register for an account, we urge you to use a strong password containing unique numbers, letters, and special characters and to protect the confidentiality of your password at all times. If you become aware of, or even suspect, any unauthorized access to or use of your account or password, you must immediately notify us and change your password. Please understand that while we seek to protect your Personal Information and maintain the security of Our Services, we cannot guarantee the security of any information, whether online or offline, because of the possibility of hardware or software failure, unauthorized entry or use, and other factors. 

 

You therefore transmit information at your own risk. You should also be aware that any information you provide to us by email is unencrypted. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us by email. In addition, we are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our website or on third-party websites. 

RETENTION

We may retain your Personal Information for as long as we need to in order to provide Our Services to you or for any other legitimate business purpose, such as resolving disputes, safety and security, or complying with legal obligations. How long we retain your Personal Information will depend on a number of factors, such as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from the unauthorized use or disclosure of that Personal Information, our reason for retaining that Personal Information, and applicable legal requirements. 

STATUTORY REQUESTS

Some jurisdictions have laws that give people the right to access or correct the Personal Information a company has about them. We will honor any statutory right you may have to access or correct any of your Personal Information that is in our records. Email requests to honor those rights and access or correct your Personal Information to privacy@artisticfuel.com.

 

Once we receive your request, we will let you know whether an administrative fee (as permitted by applicable law) will apply to fulfill your request. However, even if you have a legal right to make such a request, applicable law may permit us to reject a request that is unreasonably repetitive, would require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or materially changing an existing practice), would jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical to fulfill (for example, a request to access information located on a backup system).

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Inasmuch as this Privacy Policy is part of the TOU Agreement, any Disputes involving you and us that relate to privacy or the use of your Personal Information and that arise out of or are related to this Privacy Policy or Our Services will be subject to the provisions of the TOU Agreement regarding limitation of damages and liability, choice of law, and dispute resolution (including mandatory binding arbitration).

If you do not receive timely acknowledgement of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, you can also submit your complaint to Privacy Trust, an independent third party. Visit Privacy Trust’s website at www.privacytrust.com/ to file a complaint. In limited situations, EU individuals may seek redress from the Privacy Shield Panel. You may also have the right to register a complaint with the data protection regulator in your country.

COOKIE POLICY

This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our website. Additionally, it explains what these technologies are, why we use them, and your rights to control our use of them.

Cookies, Web Beacons, And Similar Technologies.  We may use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies (such as tracking URLs) to collect information about how you or others access or use Our Services, our emails and our advertisements displayed on or off Our Services, and to operate, develop, improve, and customize Our Services and marketing (including our advertisements displayed on or off Our Services). Many browsers automatically accept cookies, but your browser may have settings that enable you to decline or delete cookies on your device. Please understand that because some of Our Services require cookies to operate, you may not be able to sign in, customize, or use some or all of the interactive features of Our Services if you decline cookies. 

What These Technologies Are.  “Cookies” are small data files placed on your computer or other device that record information. Website owners typically use them to make their websites work more efficiently, as well as to provide certain reporting information. For example, a cookie could enable Our Services to recognize your browser, while another cookie could store your account preferences and other information to help customize Our Services. We may use two kinds of cookies: “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.” “Session cookies” normally expire when you close your browser, while “persistent cookies” remain on your device until they expire or are deleted. “Web beacons” (which are also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFS”) are pieces of code or pixels embedded in a web page or email to track engagement with and responses to emails, web pages, or advertisements, or to access or communicate with cookies. “Tracking URLs” are special URLs that can be used to track engagement with and responses to emails or web pages.

Third-Party Analytics, Service, And Advertising Providers.  We may use third-party analytics and service providers (including Google Analytics) to help us better understand how Our Services are accessed and used. For example, we employ a third-party analytics or service provider for web analytics, audience measurement, personalization and segmentation, and relationship management purposes. In turn, this information helps us to expand and improve Our Services. These third-party providers may use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information about how users access or use Our Services, emails, and advertisements, on or off Our Services. We may also use third-party advertising providers, including advertising networks or exchanges, to help display advertising on the Services or on other websites, including customized advertisements based on past online activity. These third parties may use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to help provide their services to us and to collect information about other persons’ and your online activity across different websites. These providers may also collect your IP address, device identifier, or other identifier for advertising. We use Google’s Remarketing and Demographics and Interest Reporting features, which enables Google Analytics to collect data about traffic on Our Services through Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers. We and third-party providers, including Google Analytics, may use first-party cookies (which are cookies set by the website you are visiting) and third-party cookies (which are cookies set by a third-party website other than the website you are visiting) to inform, optimize, and serve advertising based on past visits to Our Services. Because we do not control the practices of third-party providers, our Cookie Policy (and our Privacy Policy in general) does not cover the use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies by third parties.

Local Shared Objects.  Certain websites may also use Local Shared Objections, which are also known as “LSOs” or “Flash Cookies,” to collect and store information about your use of Our Services, for fraud prevention purposes, and for other site operations. If you do not want LSOs stored on your computer or other device, you can adjust the settings of your Flash Player to block LSOs storage. However, setting your Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of LSOs may interfere with some Flash applications, such as those used in connection online content.

Opting Out.  Third-party providers may offer you a way to opt out of receiving cookies from them by visiting their own websites or the websites of industry groups, such as the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. For example, you may opt out of receiving advertising-related cookies from Google through its settings. If you opt out of receiving cookies from one of these providers, it may place a cookie on your device to remember your preferences. Accordingly, if you delete cookies, install a new browser, or start using a new device, you may need to repeat the opt out process. To opt out of receiving marketing materials, email us at privacy@artisticfuel.com.

Changes To This Cookie Policy.  Inasmuch as this Cookie Policy is part of our Privacy Policy, we may update it at any time, as described in our Privacy Policy. Please review this Cookie Policy regularly to be informed of any updates.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

As our business changes with time, so do privacy considerations. Accordingly, we have the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time without prior notice. For example, we may change this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the law or changes to Our Services. Changes to this Privacy Policy will be effective when posted on Our Services or at such later date (if any) as is specified in the updated Privacy Policy. We will notify you of any changes to this Privacy Policy by posting the updated Privacy Policy on Our Services. We urge you to review this Privacy Policy regularly and inform yourself of all applicable changes. Your continuing to use Our Services after a change to this Privacy Policy becomes effective means that you agree to the change and the updated Privacy Policy.
