THE INFORMATION WE NEED:
When you place an order, we will ask for your contact information (i.e., name, shipping address, and e-mail address) and, if you are paying by credit card, financial information (like credit card number and expiration date.) We have partnered with a credit card processing company to assist us in processing your payment; however, that company does not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. The information you provide us is used for processing and fulfilling your order and contacting you if we have problems processing your order.
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law and when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process.
MyPassionFor Ltd. through its network of sites offers interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our site audience thinks about important issues. MyPassionFor Ltd. uses a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
Passion for Paintings Auctions
To actively participate in auctions, users must register (this is separate from our ordinary website registration). During registration the user is required to supply a username and password, along with a name, full address, daytime phone, and credit card information. MyPassionFor Ltd. will never divulge personally identifiable information to a third party (except to comply with federal and state laws).
Users of the MyPassionFor Ltd. Message Boards and bulletin board must register separately for these services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages, although they needn't register to visit the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password, and email address.
Electronic Newsletters (Dispatches)
MyPassionFor Ltd. through its network of sites offers a free electronic newsletter to users. MyPassionFor Ltd. gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list through the subscription management pages. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
MyPassionFor Ltd. through its network of sites delivers newsletters, marketing and product offerings via email to only registered recipients from our subscription center. The email tracking system recognizes the URL that was clicked, and records some information about you and your computer, such as the email address that you provided to us, the browser, operating system and IP address.
WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION:
The private information that you give us when you place an order or utilize one of our special services is used to process and fulfill your order or request. This information may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) available from our records and other sources. This information will be used to make our future marketing efforts more helpful and relevant to you.
We are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the personal information you give us, such as your billing, shipping and e-mail addresses, to process and keep you informed of your order. You may, from time to time, receive information from us about new features, new services and special offers we think you'll find valuable. We do make our mailing list available to carefully screened companies whose products or services might interest you.
CHOICE TO OPT-OUT:
If you are no longer interested in receiving announcements and other marketing information from us, please e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your complete name and mailing address (as well as your e-mail address) if you prefer not to receive direct mail postcards or catalogues from us.

IP ADDRESS AND COOKIES:
We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address also may be used to gather broad demographic information and to recognize customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information aids us in merchandising and in developing the design and layout of the site.
In addition, MyPassionFor Ltd., like almost all the large e-commerce websites, uses 'cookies'. Cookies are bits of information that are stored on your computer by your Web browser. Cookies are used to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. They allow us to do things like keep items in your shopping cart between visits or during the same visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.. Whether you want your Web browser to accept cookies or not is up to you. If you haven't changed your computer's settings, most likely your browser already accepts cookies.
We may also collect and share information about the pages that you visit on our site, but this information is not personally identifiable. We may use selected reputable third parties for marketing and analysis purposes. We require such companies to maintain all information in the strictest confidence.
We also use third party advertisements on our websites to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
