Collecting Smiles Inc. respects the privacy of all visitors to our site. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
the information we collect
In various places on the Collecting Smiles site, we collect "Personally Identifiable Information" such as your email address, real name, or other information that can be used to identify you as an individual. We use this information to create your login account, to send you password reset information, and to periodically send announcements.
Please be aware that anything you post to the Gallery (such as your personal website) is viewable by the public. So please exercise judgment when considering what information you wish to share!
We also collect anonymous information about how our collective users interact with our site, such as posting images, "Liking" and commenting on other paintings, and visiting pages. In addition, we collect basic information about how you connect to our site, such as your IP address and browser.
how we use that information
Your Personally Identifiable Information will never be shared with any third parties without your permission, unless required to do so by law, or when necessary to complete a 3rd party transaction initiated by you. In the event that we do find opportunities to share your Personally Identifiable Information, we will send you a notification via email, with instructions for how to opt in.
All other "anonymous" information collected is used solely to improve, optimize, and/or customize our users' experience.
Collecting Smiles Inc. claims no ownership over the paintings you create and post to our website. However, we reserve the right to display your paintings on our websites and within the Colors! application. In the event that we want to use your paintings for promotional or other purposes, we might contact you by e-mail to offer you to participate.
You can access your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by logging in, clicking on the "My Account!" link.
If you have any reason to suspect that security on this site has been breached, please email us at email@example.com.
We occasionally provide notifications, whether required by law or for other reasons, to our users via e-mail notice, or through prominent posting on the Collecting Smiles website and community pages, as determined by us in our sole discretion. Please be aware that Collecting Smiles Inc. may change the means by which we communicate to our users if and when appropriate.
