How do we use cookies and other tracking tools?

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

This website is using services of the hosting company Bluehost.com and others such as MailChimp. The companies are using cookies that might affect you. Following you can find their explanation of why and how they handle cookies and privacy. For detailed description please visit Bluehost.com’s GDPR policy, and MailChimp’s Cookie Statement.

 

Woocommerce Analytics

Woocommerce Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitors’ general details of the customers’ websites. Collecting these statistics, a website can make their visitors’ experience better (e.g. which pages they visit and when, where they are approximately located, where does a user land first or if they are coming from a specific referral).
Basically, as a website owner using Woocommerce Analytics, we are using cookies to collect data about visitors’ device type and screen size, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rate, conversions and popular content on the website. All identifying info is removed from the data and Woocommerce Analytics will never use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user. Each visitor has control over the cookies placement.

 

How to control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish by checking your browser settings on each device – for details, see aboutcookies.org.
For further information, please check Visitor Analytics’ Terms Of Use, Cookie Information and Opt-Out / Do Not Track.

If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it
If you would like to access, correct, amend or delete any personal information we have about you, you are invited to contact us at afinelikeness@gmail.com or send us mail to: 23 Flint Avenue, Stoneham, MA 02180.

 

Who we share your data with

We do not share your information with third parties other than what is specifically required to fill your order, such as sending postal info to shipping services to calculate and purchase shipping labels.

We retain your payment information only for as long as necessary to provide you with services and as described in the Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with any legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.

We will only use data obtained from you when/if required legally to do so.

 

Comments

As of this writing, we do not publish a blog. If in the future, visitors are able to leave comments on blogposts, we will collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

 

Blog/Account Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

 

Embedded content from other websites

Articles or links on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

 

Analytics

Our website is connected with Google Analytics through WordPress, to track and collect user interactions on our website. Our WordPress connection ensures that the info is GDPR-compliant.

 

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

At the time of this writing, we don’t not require an account created for purchasing prints. In the future, should this become necessary, we will store the personal information provided in your user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

 

What rights you have over your data

If you create an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

 

How do we communicate with you?

We may contact you to notify you regarding your questions or purchase, to troubleshoot problems with your purchase, to resolve a dispute, to collect fees or monies owed, to poll your opinions through surveys or questionnaires, to send updates about our company, or as otherwise necessary to contact you to enforce our User Agreement, applicable national laws, and any agreement we may have with you. For these purposes we may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, and postal mail.
