Gingezel™ Privacy Policy

Revision Feb 6 2016
This site may contain sales/affiliate marketing links (widgets) to sites such as Fine Art America or Spoonflower. These will collect the information required to direct you to that site and perform the sales, and this may involve the use of cookies and tracking devices.

Revision June 6, 2014
We have installed Google Analytics on the site with the maximum privacy settings. No data, anonymous or otherwise, is shared with other Google products or any third parties.

Revision July 27, 2013
We have installed StatCounter on this site. It provides the same sort of impersonal aggregate data as our web hosting service, but in an easy to use form. See General Site Use for the type of information collected.

***
At Gingezel™ we respect your privacy and have tried to minimize any personal information collected. No personally identifiable information is collected anywhere on our site without your express permission. No personally identifiable information is ever given to or sold to third parties.

Express permission means that you have sent us a contact form (see below). Use of these forms is entirely optional and initiates additional service.


General Site Use and Cookies:

Gingezel™ has not installed any additional cookies on any of our sites beyond those that are used by our web hosting service (GoDaddy) to collect the standard aggregate data on web use. Web server log files may also be used for this purpose. The sort of aggregate data includes the pages most visited per day, countries visiting the site, etc.

This information contains no personally identifiable information and typically includes:
• Your IP address
• The date and time you visited the web page
• The web page/file requested
• The type of HTTP request
• Whether the web page/file request was successful or not
• Which web browser you're using
• The page you visited directly before (known as the referring URL)
• The search engine used to get to the web page (if applicable)
• Keywords used in a search engine to find the web page (if applicable)
• Which operating system is installed on your computer
Using web statistics programs to glean information from web server log files is standard across the internet and is part of the basic web hosting package at GoDaddy.

Google Analytics are used with maximum privacy settings.

No attempt is made to link this aggregate data with any individual. This aggregate data is not provided to third parties.

We have not installed any form of click tracking on our sites.

The setting of cookies can be managed in your web browser preferences.


If you contact us using the contact form:
Gingezel™ sites use forms in which you give us contact information: (your name and email address) so you can request information and support, and make product suggestions. Use of these forms is entirely optional.
We receive and store any information you enter on our sites, or give us in any other way, including through email, telephone, or other communications with customer service. If you contact us for support, we will keep an internal record of what support was given.
This information is not used in any way other than to answer your query. The information is not used to create mailing lists, transferred to any third party, or aggregated with other data.
If you wish us to delete all information about you from our computers once support is finished, please request that in your last contact and we will do so.

Transfer of Data Abroad

If you are visiting a Gingezel™ site from a country other than the country in which we are located (Canada) or the servers we site this website on (US) are located, your communications with us may result in the transfer of information across international boundaries.  By visiting a Gingezel™ site and communicating electronically with us, you consent to such transfers.

Print on Demand Sites:
All Gingezel™ sites link to the print on demand sites that prepare and ship our products, and provide customer service for such fulfillment. These sites, Fine Art America, Spoonflower, and Zazzle are highly interactive sites and each has their own privacy polices and terms of use independent of Gingezel™. Please read them in detail prior to using their services.

The website gingezel.artistwebsites.com is not a Gingezel™ created website but is an extension of Fine Art America. It is hosted by Fine Art America and is subject to their policies, not those of Gingezel™.

Links to Third Party sites:
On Gingezel™ sites we may provide links we think could be of interest to our users. These are usually links to artists, poetry journals, etc. Gingezel™ is not responsible for the privacy policies of these third party sites. Please read their policies.
