Privacy Policy

by Candi Hogan Fine Art Studio — Published on April 23, 2015

Your trust is important to us, and we take privacy and security very seriously. We will never share your information with parties outside the Candi Hogan Fine Art Studio, unless we have explicitly made you aware that we will before you give it to us. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy or our use of data, please get in touch with us at gemcraftersandexplorersclub+Info@gmail.com.

The restrictions described here on the dissemination of personal information are not subject to change. This policy is updated occasionally but the changes will not reduce the privacy protection of visitors. If there are changes made in the future, the changes will not affect information already collected.

We maintain strict internal policies against unauthorized disclosure or use of customer information.

Analytics

We installed the Piwik analytics system (see website at http://piwik.org/ and wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piwik). We geolocate visitors to our sites and record their page navigation within the website. The system still preserves anonymity. Read more below.

The Candi Hogan Fine Art Studio uses Piwik, a free software web analytics system, to monitor traffic on our Web sites. Piwik records the general geographical vicinity of visitors as well as their browser and operating system, and records their navigation within the sites. This helps us gauge the impact of our materials and improve our work.

Our Piwik system preserves privacy by anonymizing visitors' IP addresses. This means that we will not store any personally identifiable information about you, even though your visit produces a record that our site was visited by someone.

Piwik also respects the "Do Not Track" preference offered by some browsers, so if you have this option set, Piwik will ignore your visit.

Customer Information

Visitors to the website are not solicited for any personal information and no personal information is collected.

Membership

Contact information is requested at the time of a membership sign-up. This information is used to verify that the new member can be contacted. Member lists are not sold or distributed to third parties. The Candi Hogan Fine Art Studio uses this member list to send a membership welcome packet and its monthly newsletter. Members can access the newsletter on-line and can opt out of receiving the newsletter when they sign up.
