Privacy Policy


Introduction

As owner of Mineke Reinders Fine Art, I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of the visitors to my website. Rest assured that I will not sell, rent, or distribute your personal information to other companies or businesses for marketing purposes. In this Privacy Policy, you can find detailed information about when and why I collect your personal information, how it is used, the limited conditions under which I may disclose it to others, and how it is kept secure.

Website Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Mineke Reinders Fine Art uses traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps me analyze data about web page traffic and improve my website in order to tailor it to your needs. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help me provide you with a better website, by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives me access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with me.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Google Analytics

When someone visits minekereinders.com, a third party service, Google Analytics, is used to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. I use Google Analytics to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting my website.

You can follow this link to learn more about how Google Analytics safeguards your data. If you’d rather not have your visits to this website logged by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-out Broswer Add-on.

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for my newsletter, I collect your first name and email address. I use that information to send you periodic updates about my work, announcements about exhibitions, workshops, and other relevant events, and occasional offers of original art work or art products for sale in my webshop.

I use a third-party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver my newsletter to you. Mailchimp allows me to gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me monitor and improve my e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy policy. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing me at hello@minekereinders.com

Payment Data

When you purchase an original work of art or an art product from my webshop, Mineke Reinders Fine Art collects your name, mailing address, and email address for the purpose of mailing the item(s) you ordered to you, and for communicating with you about your order. I do NOT collect your credit card number or other financial data. Purchases are handled via a third-party secure payment gateway, Stripe. Follow this link to Stripe’s privacy policy.

However, once you have used these links to leave my site, you should note that I do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information  you provide while visiting other sites, and other sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and read the privacy statement of the website in question.
