Aggregated Statistics
Artisan Events may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to this Site. Artisan Events may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Artisan Events does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Types of Information about Users Gathered by Artisan Events
The information we gather about users of this Site enables us to provide you with the services, products, and courses you seek and helps us to personalize and continually improve our service to you. Here are the types of information we gather:

Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on the Site or provide us in any way. For example, you provide us with information when you establish an account as a Subscriber; order a product, service, or course; sign up for email notifications; post a review or post information in a discussion forum; fill out a survey or provide feedback; fill out forms on the Site; respond to surveys; search queries on our search feature; or interact with the Site in other ways. We may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, password, or phone number. When you order products, courses, coaching or services, we will also ask you to provide credit card information via a third-party site directly to our credit card processor, who will keep the information on file and which is subject to the credit card processor’s privacy policy. Some of the information we ask you to provide us is mandatory and some is voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information requested for a particular activity, you will not be permitted to participate in that activity. We use information you provide to us to deliver the requested product and/or service, to improve our overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, and information.

Automatic Information:
We receive, analyze, and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the Site whether or not you have established an account with us. For example, we collect the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; your login and email address; information about your browser and operating system; and the Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) of the websites you visited before and after our Site. We also place cookies on your computer to prevent fraud, to personalize your experience on our site, and for other purposes. You may be able to delete or disable such cookies, but doing so may prevent you from taking advantage of some or all Artisan Events services. We additionally may use software tools to collect information about how you move about and use our Site in order to improve our services including Google Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through our website, and any communications between your computer and our Website. Among other things, we will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type. If you post Artisan Events offers to your wall through the social network interface we provide, our software tools will also be able to track these interactions, including information about how many friends you have on your social networks.

The information we collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. We use this data to improve our Website and our service offerings. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.

Use of Cookies And Pixels
Similar to other commercial websites, Artisan Events utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how our site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Artisan Events reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. Artisan Events reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.

California law requires us to let you know whether we honor “Do Not Track” requests set by your browser. Unfortunately, there is no industry or legal standard (or easy technological solution) about how to handle these responses. Thus, we don’t currently respond to Do Not Track signals at this time.

Third Party Use Of Cookies
Some content or applications, including advertisements, on the Website are served by third-parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our website. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content.

We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

Information from Other Sources:
We may combine information you provide us with information from third parties to correct our records, personalize your experience, or enhance our services. This may include, but is not limited to, information from credit bureaus.

How Artisan Events Shares the Information It Receives
Information about our users is a critical part of our business. As a general rule, we do not sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer any information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action. We are not in the business of selling that information to others, but we may share user information with others in the following ways:

With Authorized Third-Party Service Providers:
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and operating our Site, and we may provide your personally identifiable information with these parties. For example, when you order a product or service, our credit card processor sends your credit card information to the appropriate financial institution to confirm payment for the service. The use of your personally identifiable information by such parties is subject to their privacy policies and is not subject to our control.

We may disclose your personal information to a third party, including a lawyer or collection agency, when necessary to enforce our terms of service or any other agreement between you and Artisan Events.

To Parent or Affiliated Companies:
We may disclose your personal information to our subsidiaries, affiliates, and service providers for the purpose of providing our services to you. While we currently do not have a parent company, subsidiaries, or any other companies under a common control, we may in the future, and we may share your personally identifiable information with these companies, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy Policy.

In a Change of Ownership:

As we continue to develop our business, we might merge with or be acquired by another company. If this happens, the successor company could acquire the information we maintain, but personally identifiable information would remain subject to this Privacy Policy. We may provide your information to any successor in interest in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Artisan Events’ assets and/or business.

For Artisan Events’ Protection or the Protection of Others:
We may disclose your personally identifiable information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law or a court order; enforce our Terms of Use Agreement or other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Artisan Events, our users, or others. 

Security of Your Information
We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors.

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on our website may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information and other sensitive information is never transmitted via email.

Artisan Events may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, Artisan Events uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

If you choose a direct Payment Gateway to complete your purchase, we do not have access to your credit card information but Stripe stores your credit card data, which it encrypts through Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). It is encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology and stored with AES-256 encryption. All direct Payment Gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. For more information, you may read Stripe’s Terms of Use or Privacy Policy.

If you choose PayPal® to complete your purchase, we do not have access to your credit card information when you share it directly with PayPal®. The use of your personally identifiable information by PayPal® is subject to its privacy policy and is not subject to our control.

When you provide us with personally identifiable information, however, you acknowledge that, even with industry standard security measures in place, third parties might unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. It is also important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your computer and to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
