Artisan Light Works, Inc
Privacy Policy and Agreement

Artisan Light Works, Inc (hereafter referred to as "ALW") is committed to maintaining the privacy of personal information that you provide to us when using the ALW web site. This Privacy Policy describes how we treat personal information received about you when you visit www.artisanlight.com. We are committed to respecting your privacy. We appreciate the trust you place in ALW. This Privacy Policy constitutes the agreement between you and ALW regarding your provision, and our collection and use of, contact and other information you may provide while using our Site. By using our Site, you consent to this Privacy Policy.

1. Privacy Protection for Children
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen. In addition, if a user is under 18, unless consent is obtained from your parent/guardian, you are not allowed to provide us with personal information.

2. Types of Information You May Provide
Information you may provide while visiting our Site falls into two broad categories: Personally Identifiable Information and Accumulated information (Aggregate Information). Personally Identifiable Information is information that can be used to identify or contact you, such as your name, credit card information, email address, or mailing address. Accumulated Data is information that does not identify you, and may include, for example, statistical information concerning the web pages on our Site that users most frequent. Our Privacy Policy governs both categories of information, as detailed below.

3. Personally Identifiable Information:
We allow you to decide whether you wish to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information. Accordingly, we have structured our website so that you may visit us, and review a range of information about our products offered by ALW, without revealing your identity or providing any Personally Identifiable Information.

3a. Registration and Credit Card Information
Some means for gathering personal data include our Contact Us form and Store Checkout Process. Users who wish to register for professional learning offered by ALW may be asked to provide Personally Identifiable Information, including, but not limited to, first and last name and month/day of birth. The data obtained through these forms is used internally at ALW.

When you provide information during our Store Checkout Process to make a purchase, the transactional information that you provide is transmitted in a safe, encrypted format through PayPal. To maintain your security, your encrypted credit card information is sent to the credit card authority via PayPal and approval status is sent back to us.

3b. Email, Direct Communications, and Other Forms
You may have the ability on our Site to pose certain questions to staff in order to learn more about products and services offered by ALW. You may wish to provide us with comments and feedback concerning our Site generally. By communicating with us in these ways, you may provide us with your email address and other Personally Identifiable Information. All data collected is stored at the highest level of security available to our web server.

4. We Use Your Contact Information to Keep You Informed
We may use Personally Identifiable Information you give to us to provide you with information concerning our program and services, newsletters, updates, and related materials. We may also use this information to respond to questions and comments from you, and to inform you of changes to our Privacy Policy.

You may opt out of receiving email or other information from us, or have your Personally Identifiable Information deleted from our databases by following the directions set out in Section 8 (“How to Remove Your Information from Our Databases”).

We will not sell or disclose any Personally Identifiable Information you provide on our Site to any unrelated third party without your express permission.

5. Information That Does Not Identify You: Accumulated Data (Aggregate Information)
When you browse our Site, the choices you make may provide information concerning your interests, and concerning the appeal and effectiveness of associated Site features. Information concerning our visitors’ activities at our Site – which pages they visit, and how long they view these pages, for example – is Accumulated Data. This information does not identify a particular user, but does provide potentially useful data.

5a. Cookies
We may accumulate data about your use of our Site through cookies and similar Internet technologies. If we use cookies, they do not collect or retain your name or other Personally Identifiable Information. In addition, no third parties are permitted to use cookies we may create at our Site for their own purposes.

5b. Disabling Cookies
You may choose not to allow us to collect information in this manner, through cookies. If you wish, you can set your browser software to reject cookies. Most browsers provide instructions for disabling the cookies feature in their “Help” section. Because cookies can be used to provide certain functionality, if you disable your browser’s cookies feature, certain elements of our Site may be unavailable to you.

5c. IP Addresses
An “Internet Protocol” (IP) address is associated with your computer’s connection to the Internet. We may use your computer’s IP address to maintain contact with you as you navigate through our Site. We also may use your computer’s IP address to provide you with personalized content. Similar to cookies, your computer’s IP address by itself does not identify you personally.

6. We Use Accumulated (Aggregate) Information Only In Ways That Do Not Identify You
We may share the Accumulated data, and reports based on this Information, with third parties unrelated to the Site. No information which we provide to third parties will allow anyone to identify you, or determine anything personal about you. For example, we might report to unrelated third parties the number of users of our Site.

7. How We Safeguard Information
It is our intent to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected from you. We use a variety of current technologies and processes for protection of our customer data. These systems are structured to deter and prevent hackers and others from accessing this information. Due to the nature of Internet communications and evolving technologies, however, we cannot provide, and disclaim, assurance that the information you provide us will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties who, despite our efforts, obtain unauthorized access.

8. How to Remove Your Information from Our Databases
If you request, we will remove your name and other Personally Identifiable Information from our databases. Please understand, however, that it may be impossible to remove this information completely, due to backups and records of deletions. If you wish to remove your name and other Personally Identifiable Information from our databases, please create an email with the term “Remove” in the subject line, and send the email to the address listed in Section 12 (“Contact Us”). As an alternative, you may write to us with your request, at the mailing address listed in Section 12. Please note, however, that some information may be required to be retained by ALW for a certain time period for tax reporting purposes.

Because Aggregate Information does not personally identify our users, we do not provide our users with access to Aggregate Information, and users may not update, revise, or delete any Aggregate Information.

9. Changes in Our Privacy Policy
From time to time, we may revise our Privacy Policy and we reserve the right to change it at any time. We will notify registered users of these changes, and will post the changes here. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will apply prospectively, and we will maintain Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with the version of the Policy in effect at the time you submitted the information, unless you consent to application of the revised Privacy Policy.

10. Complete Agreement
In addition to this Privacy Policy, your use of our Site is also subject to our Terms of Use. Together with our Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy constitutes the entire agreement between you and ALW with respect to use of the ALW Site.

11. Your Consent
