Preface

     The Paintin' Place wishes to assure you, our web site visitor, that our desire always is to maintain absolute integrity in the collection and use of private, personal credit or financial information provided to us by our customers.  For this reason we present here the The Paintin' Place Credit & Financial Information Privacy Policy to state publicly our position on this extremely important issue.


How We Collect Information

     The Paintin' Place does not collect personal information without your knowledge during your visit to our web site.  Rather, we use totally open means for collecting information we deem appropriate to conclude a purchase transaction or any other interaction with us in a business-like and orderly manner.

     On our Web site, we do not use so-called "cookies" or other software applets to collect information as we deem the use of these to be an inappropriate intrusion upon your computer system and your privacy.


How We Use The Information

     The Paintin' Place is very concerned that at all times we respect your privacy whether during your visit to our Web site or during other occasions of interaction with us.  Consistent with that objective, we hereby declare we will not share, sell, lease, or rent your confidential information with any entity that is not directly linked to or an integral part of The Paintin' Place.  Further, we will always endeavor to take all reasonable steps to maintain the security of the information you provide to us.


What Type Of Information Do We Need Or Keep?

     Under various circumstances, either here in this Web site or in other forms of communication with you, we may ask that you provide us with personal credit or financial information.  The type of information we request almost always is totally consistent with the type of communication or transaction underway with our us.  In all cases, except possibly a telephone communication, you will quickly recognize that we follow reasonably consistent patterns of inquiry.  On this Web site, we use E-mail Message Forms with specifically stated "required" fields.


Future E-Commerce Provisions

     This Web site may in the future incorporate and/or link to a "shopping cart" facility (i.e. The Paintin' Place On-Line) to expedite placement and handling of customer orders.  When activated, this facility will use 128-bit encryption to protect sensitive data transmissions from your computer to The Paintin' Place On-Line. At that time, you will be able to see that such encryption is active by observing a "padlock" icon at the bottom of your browser's window.  However, as of the date shown below, such encryption is not in effect.


Effects Of Hyperlinks To Other Related Web Sites

     Fromn time to time, we may elect to create hyperlinks to related web sites that we have personally viewed and found consistent with our goals.  We must advise you that when you elect to activate a hyperlink taking you from this Web site to another Web site, you almost always will be outside the limits of the this Privacy Policy that you are now reviewing.  Once you activate such a hyperlink and enter a different Web site, you will be subject to the privacy policy (if any) of the site to which you have just linked.  Please understand that The Paintin' Place cannot be responsible for the actions of other organizations with respect to the security, use, or disposition (including their use of "cookies" or other software applets) of personal information supplied by you to such other Web site.


Right To Modify This Policy

     The Paintin' Place reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. When such changes are made, they will be posted in this location.
