Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Art of the Peace we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Art of the Peace Visual Arts Group (“Art of the Peace”) operates a website at www.artofthepeace.ca. It is Art of the Peace’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Art of the Peace 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. Art of the Peace’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Art of the Peace’s visitors use its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Art of the Peace’s websites choose to interact with Art of the Peace in ways that require Art of the Peace to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Art of the Peace gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at www.artofthepeace.ca to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Art of the Peace – by purchasing products or digital goods, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Art of the Peace collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Art of the Peace. Art of the Peace 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 or completing purchases for products or digital goods.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Art of the Peace’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Art of the Peace will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Art of the Peace discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Art of the Peace believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Art of the Peace, third parties or the public at large.
