Like most website operators, we may collect non-personally identifiable information that web browsers and servers typically make available (e.g., browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request). We collect this information to better understand how visitors use our Website. From time to time, we may release non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our Website.
Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally identifiable information. The amount and type of information we gather depends on the nature of the interaction, but the categories of personally identifiable information or potentially personally identifiable information we gather are generally IP addresses, names, email addresses, cities/countries, telephone numbers, and time zones. For example, we ask each visitor who joins our mailing list to provide a name and email (city/country and personal message are optional), while we ask each visitor who requests a private meeting with an artist to provide a name, email address, telephone number, city/country, and time zone (personal message is optional). If you request to have artwork shipped to you, we will ask for your shipping address. We may also collect data about your artistic tastes and fields of interests to customize our services to you. In each case, we collect such information to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. Members of our mailing list who supply their email address to us may receive emails keep them current with us, our artists, and our pieces, or just to tell them about new features or solicit feedback. You may opt out of receiving such communications at any time by emailing your opt-out request to email@example.com. You may always review and make changes to your personally identifiable information by emailing your review request to firstname.lastname@example.org. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifiable information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Website-related activities.
We may collect aggregated statistics about the behavior of visitors to our Website and may display this information publicly or provide it to others.
We may use the personal information you provide us for any of the following reasons: (i) internal record keeping, (ii) to improve Gallery Yoram Gil™, our services, and to provide the services and customer support that you want, (iii) to periodically send promotional emails or notices to you regarding new artists, artwork, events, or other information that we think you may find interesting, (iv) to contact you or send you products at your request, (v) to contact you, via email or otherwise, for market research purposes, including but not limited to the customization of Gallery Yoram Gil™ according to your interests, and (vi) to promote our services to appropriate audiences.
We disclose potential and actual personally identifiable information only to our employees, contractors, artists, and affiliated organizations (“Facilitators”) that (i) need to know such information to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at our Website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some Facilitators may be located outside of your home country; by using our Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potential or actual personally identifiable information to anyone. Except for the Facilitators as described above, we disclose potential and actual personally identifiable information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is legally required or reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We take reasonable measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potential and actual personally identifiable information (e.g. encryption, passwords, physical security), however, it remains possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications and may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Website. Although we work hard to protect your privacy, we cannot guarantee that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
If Gallery Yoram Gil™, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Gallery Yoram Gil™ goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information may be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. By using our Website, you acknowledge and agree that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Gallery Yoram Gil™ may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
