Art4YourHome does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from suggestions, voting/polling activities and survey areas. Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to third parties.
Art4YourHome reserves the right to contact an individual regarding the information collected. Art4YourHome reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. Art4YourHome will provide only aggregated data from these analyses to third parties. Additionally, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) in the forums or chat areas of the site, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user's communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Art4YourHome. Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of the site's internet servers or through the use of "cookies."
Upon request, Art4YourHome will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, Art4YourHome will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.
The foregoing policies are effective as of March 1, 2003. Art4YourHome reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This statement and the policies outlined here in are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
