Privacy & Cookie Policies: Gallery System Art Displays

PRIVACY POLICY

This policy describes how Gallery System Art Displays (“Gallery System”) and our website, GallerySystem.com, use and protect information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. If you provide us with personal information through GallerySystem.com, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Gallery System collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Gallery System’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website.

GallerySystem.com also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. However, Gallery System does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, except under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally Identifying Information

Certain visitors to GallerySystem.com choose to interact with Gallery System in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that GallerySystem.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who inquire about our products to provide an email address and/or phone number, and when visitors place orders we ask for their delivery address and payment information.

In each case, GallerySystem.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Gallery System. Gallery System does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities, like purchasing products or signing up for our communications.

We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users’ experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices. This includes a device's IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and the preferred language used to display our website. Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf. 

For further details, please see the About Hotjar section of Hotjar’s support site.

Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information

GallerySystem.com discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only to employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Gallery System’s behalf or to provide services available through GallerySystem.com, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using GallerySystem.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Instances in which we may disclose personal information include:

•  Corporate affiliates. We may share personal information with our corporate affiliates, including our manufacturing partner, Gallery System Art Displays in Warana, Australia

•  Service Providers. We share certain personal information with third parties that perform services to support our core business functions and internal operations (e.g., fulfilling orders, delivering packages, complying with your request for the shipment of products to or the provision of services by a third party intermediary, sending postal mail and e-mails, analyzing customer data, providing marketing assistance, administering ratings & reviews, processing credit card and debit card payments, investigating fraudulent activity, conducting customer surveys, and providing customer service).

Gallery System will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying or personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Gallery System discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when Gallery System believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of our organization, third parties, or the public at large.

If you are a Gallery System customer, or have supplied your email address to us for the above-described purposes or in the course of doing business together, we may occasionally send you an email to alert you to new website content, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Gallery System and our products. We strive to keep this type of email to a minimum, and you may opt out of receiving email from us at any time.

Gallery System takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of personally identifying and potentially personally identifying information.

Use of personal information

We will not use in any other way the information you provide to us in the course of doing business together.

We will not sell, lease, or disclose your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

We would like, from time to time, to send you email marketing communication which may be of interest to you. If you have consented to marketing, you may opt out later.

You have a right to, at any time, stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.

Legal grounds for processing personal information

We rely on one or more of the following processing conditions: our legitimate interests in the effective delivery of information, products, and services to you; explicit consent that you have given; legal obligations.

The Company cooperates with government and law enforcement officials to enforce and comply with the law. We may therefore disclose personal information, usage data, message data, and any other information about you, if we deem that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process (such as a subpoena or court order), or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce the Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of the Company, its users, or the public, as required or permitted by law.

COOKIE POLICY

What are cookies?

Cookies are tiny text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely (but anonymously) identify your browser or device. They are unable to search your computer in any way, cannot introduce viruses to your computer and contain no personal identifying information about you.

What are cookies used for?

Cookies are used by sites or services when they want to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. These cookies on your computer or device can then be used to help remember your preferences (such as language), help you navigate between pages efficiently, and generally improve your browsing experience.

Similarly, cookies are used by web publishers to help understand how their site or service is being used. Services such as Google Analytics use cookies to provide anonymous aggregated data such as how long users, in general, spend on the site, how many pages they visit and in which order, whether they make a purchase, etc.

Cookies can also be used for online advertising – by aggregating the very basic information cookies gather, informed guesses could be made about your demographic and ads targeted to you thusly. Or more simply – if you go to a site about watches, it may drop a cookie on your computer, so the next sites you go to will then contain ads about watches.

What types of cookies does GallerySystem.com use?

There are generally four categories of cookies: “Strictly Necessary,” “Performance,” “Functionality,” and “Targeting.” GallerySystem.com routinely uses three of these types of cookie: “Strictly Necessary,” “Performance,” and “Targeting.”

Here is some information about each cookie category:

Strictly Necessary Cookies These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around GallerySystem.com and use its features. For example – the cookie to say you have/have not allowed cookies to be used on this site.

Performance Cookies These cookies collect information about how you have used GallerySystem.com. For example, we use Google Analytics and Hotjar to track basic user behavior on this site so we can try and improve our users’ experience, and YouTube to host the embedded videos on our site.

Targeting Cookies Our advertising partners or other third-party partners may use these types of cookies to deliver advertising that is relevant to your interests. These cookies can remember that your device has visited a site or service and may also be able to track your device’s browsing activity on sites or services other than GallerySystem.com. This information may be shared with organizations outside Gallery System, such as advertisers and/or advertising networks to deliver advertising, help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign, or for providing aggregate usage statistics and aggregate testing.

Functionality Cookies GallerySystem.com does not use this type of cookie, but for your information: these cookies allow sites/services to remember how you’re logged in, when you logged in or out, and possibly anything you’ve done on a site while logged in. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous, and they are not used to track your browsing activity on other sites or services.

How long will cookies stay on my device?

The amount of time a cookie stays on your device is variable: the majority of cookies expire after the end of your browsing session while others persist for longer. In online advertising, you can generally expect most advertising cookies to last about one month at most (although again it varies).

First and third-party cookies

First-party cookies are cookies that belong to GallerySystem.com, and third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your device through our site. Third-party cookies may be placed on your device by someone providing a service for GallerySystem.com, for example, to help us understand how our service is being used. Third-party cookies may also be placed on your device by our business partners so that they can use them to advertise products and services to you elsewhere on the Internet.

How to control and delete cookies

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. Use your browser’s help function or documentation to learn how to manage cookies for different websites. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
