WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal Information.

Under this Policy, "Personal Information" means information that by itself can be used to identify or contact a specific person (for example, a person’s name, email address, postal address or phone number). It is notable that personal information does not include information that has been aggregated or made anonymous, so that by itself, it no longer identifies and can no longer reasonably be used to contact a specific person. We will only share your personal information with others in the ways described in this Policy, or otherwise with your prior consent. In addition to the other sharing of personal information described in this Policy, we may share your personal information with others in the following contexts.

Service Providers.

We may contract with any third-party service providers that help us provide some of our services, or that perform some services for us in connection with or related to our services, in which case they may be able to access your personal information as needed to perform their tasks and duties to fulfil their functions for us. Examples of such may include, but are not limited to, such business operations as order fulfillment, package delivery, payment processing, bill collection, fraud investigation, email and postal mail administration, customer service assistance, web and mobile data analytics, and server and database hosting services, and the like.

We use third parties, including Plaid Technologies, Inc. and Stripe, to gather your data from financial institutions. By using our services, you grant our third-party providers the right, power, and authority to act on your behalf to access and transmit your personal and financial information from the relevant financial institution according to the terms of such third-party providers' privacy policies and service terms.

Business Transfers.

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, your personal information may be among the assets transferred. In this event, if you have registered for an account with us, we will notify you of the change of ownership by sending an email to the current email address you provided us under.

Legal Purposes.

We may access, preserve, and disclose your personal information and any other information if we believe that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with any law, regulation, rule, mandate, legal process, and/ or governmental request (such as search warrants, subpoenas, court orders, and the like), which may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside the United States; (ii) enforce our Terms of Use or our other policies or agreements with users, or investigate potential violations; (iii) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; (iv) protect or enforce the rights or property belonging to or pertaining to us, you, or any other person or entity; and/or (v) prevent harm to any person or entity, including situations involving possible violence or self-harm.

AGGREGATED AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may aggregate or make anonymous any personal information that we have obtained in any way from or about you or others, so that such information no longer contains any personal information. In addition, we may use and share any aggregated, anonymous or other non-personally identifying information for any purposes, including research and development, marketing, as well as informing others about how our services or content are engaged with or used. Information we share in these contexts will not include your personal information.

PAYMENT INFORMATION

If you use or register for certain services provided by us, you may be requested, and will need to provide us with your payment information, such as the credit card number, type and expiration date, security code, as well as billing address, email, and telephone number. Please note that we do not store credit card information entered on our services. This information is stored by a third-party payment processor, and the use and storage of this information will be subject to the payment processor’s own terms of service, terms and conditions, private policy, and/or any other governing document(s), procedure(s) and/or protocol(s). It is the standardized practice that we receive certain information from the payment processor, including a unique token that we associate with you to authorize your purchases, and in certain cases, the last four digits of the credit card number associated with that token, in order to help prevent fraud and identity theft.

OTHER WEBSITES AND SERVICES

Our services may include links to other websites or services that we do not own, operate, maintain or control. Likewise, other websites or services that we do not own or control may include links to our services. Our services may also include features that enable you to link your account with us to your account(s) on any other social media services. For example, you may be able to sign up for (or sign in to) our services through another social media service. Moreover, our services may also include features that enable you to share content on other websites and social media services. However, these links and features do not constitute an endorsement by us of any other websites or services, or any of their privacy policies or practices, in any shape or form whatsoever.

INTERNATIONAL PROCESSING

New Liberal Arts Foundation and GLOART. Museum of Global Art are based in the United States. Our users (including the galleries, institutions and other organizations, as well as individual person(s) that use our services as exhibitors, sellers, affiliates, partners, collaborators and the like), as well as service providers and any other third parties that you may interact with in connection with our services, may be located in the United States or outside the United States, globally, in any other country or continent around the world, including countries that may not offer the same level of protection for personal information as that offered in the United States. By accessing or using our services in the United States or any other country or jurisdiction, you agree that your information may be transferred and processed in the United States and any other country or jurisdiction.

SECURITY

Every account with us is protected by a password to help maintain privacy and security on our services. If you register for an account, we urge you to use a strong and highly personalized password containing unique numbers, letters and special characters, and to protect the confidentiality of your password at all times. If you suspect or become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of your account or password, you agree to immediately notify us by email at hey@gloart.org and change your password. Please note that while we seek to protect your information and maintain the security of our services, due to the possibility of hardware or software failure, unauthorized entry or use, force majeure circumstances, acts of God, and/or any other factors beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the security of any information, whether online or offline. Any transmission of information is at your own risk. Please also note that any information you provide to us via email is unencrypted.

Once we receive your request, we will let you know if an administrative fee will apply to fulfill your request, as permitted by an applicable law. However, please note that even if you have a legal right to request access to information or to correct information, as permitted by an applicable law, we may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, would require exorbitant or disproportionate technical effort (such as developing a new system or materially changing an existing practice, for example), would jeopardize the privacy of others, and/or would be extremely impractical to fulfill (examples of such include requests to access information located on backup systems).

COLLECTING INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN

We do not collect any specific personal information pertaining to children such as names, ages, email addresses, mailing addresses, or any other contact information or personal information unless knowingly and voluntarily provided to us.

Without any limitations whatsoever, we may change this Policy to reflect any changes in the law or any modifications to our Services. All changes to this Policy will be effective when posted on our services, or at such later date as may be specified in the updated Policy.

COOKIE POLICY

Cookies, Web Beacons, and Similar Technologies.

We may use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, such as tracking URLs, to collect information about how you or others access or engage with our services, content, emails, and ads displayed on or off our services, as well as to operate, develop, improve, and customize our services, content, and marketing, including ads displayed on or off our services. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. Please note that your browser may have settings that enable you to decline or delete cookies on your device. Please also note that if you decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in, customize, or use some of the interactive features of our services, as some of our services require cookies to operate.

What these Technologies Are.

“Cookies” are small data files placed on your computer or other device which record information. For example, a cookie could enable our services to recognize your browser, while another cookie could store your account preferences and other information to help make our services more customized. We may use two kinds of cookies, “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session cookies normally expire when you close your browser, while persistent cookies remain on your device until they expire or are deleted. “Web beacons” (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFS”) are pieces of code or pixels embedded in a web page or email to track engagement with and responses to emails, web pages or ads, or to access or communicate with cookies. “Tracking URLs” are special URLs that can be used to track engagement with and responses to emails or web pages.

Third-Party Analytics, Service, and Ad Providers.

We may use third-party analytics and services providers who help us to better understand how our services and content are accessed and used, including for web analytics, audience measurement, personalization and segmentation, and relationship management purposes. In turn, this information helps us to develop and improve our services and content. Our third-party analytics and service providers include but are not limited to Google Analytics and Mixpanel. These providers may use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to collect information about how users access or engage with our services, content, emails, and ads on or off our services.

Furthermore, we may also use third-party advertising providers, including ad networks or exchanges, to help display ads on our services or on other websites, including customized ads based on past online activity. These third parties may use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to help provide their services to us, and to collect information about your and others’ online activity across different websites. These providers may also collect your IP address, device identifier, or identifier for advertising (IDFA). The third-party advertising providers that we use include but are not limited to Google Analytics, and we use its Remarketing and Demographics and Interest Reporting features, which enables Google Analytics to collect data about traffic on our Services through Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers. We and third-party providers, including Google Analytics, may use first-party cookies (i.e. cookies set by the website you are visiting) and third-party cookies (i.e. cookies set by a third-party website other than the website you are visiting) to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on past visits to our services. We do not control the practices of any third-party providers. Accordingly, our Cookie Policy, as well as our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions do not cover the use of cookies, web beacons or similar technologies by any third parties.

Opting-Out. Third-party providers may offer you a way to opt-out of receiving cookies from them by visiting their own websites or the websites of industry groups such as the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. For example, you may opt-out of receiving ad-related cookies from Google through its Ad Settings. If you opt-out of receiving cookies from one of these providers, it may place a cookie on your device to remember your preference. Accordingly, if you delete cookies, install a new browser, or start using a new device, you may need to repeat the opt-out process. We do not respond to browser-initiated “do not track” signals, as there currently is not an industry standard for responding to them.

Changes to this Cookie Policy. As this Cookie Policy is part of our Privacy Policy, we may update it at any time as described in our Privacy Policy. Please review this Cookie Policy regularly to be informed of any updates.
