Information Collection and Usage
Artsmith treats the personal information of its users with great consideration. You are able to enjoy our website without providing us with any personal information. However, we do collect information through our website when you contact us using our online contact or donation forms. We collect the information you provide for the purposes of responding to any questions/comments/suggestions you submit, processing your donations, and conducting research in order to improve our processes and services.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
• See what data we have about you, if any.
• Change/correct any data we have about you.
• Have us delete any data we have about you.
• Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety and confidentiality of all personal information in our custody and control. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Although we take reasonable measures to safeguard the personal information in our custody and control, we need you to understand that we are unable to guarantee that your personal information will never be disclosed or accessed in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, processing a donation) are granted access to personal information. The computers/servers in which we store personal information are kept in a secure environment.
We may share aggregated, anonymous demographic information with our partners or supporters. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We retain outside companies to process donations. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personal information for any secondary purposes beyond processing your donation.
We may offer links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personal information.
