Such communications may contain messages of a commercial or non-commercial nature, including but not limited to, providing you the relevant service or response to your inquiry that you requested, marketing and promotions of the Services or the services of our partners and advertisers, administrative purposes, or to carry out other purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

HOW DOES ARTSMILEY USE COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS?

  • “Cookies” are small data file identifiers that are transferred to your computer or mobile web browser that allow us to recognize your browser or mobile device and transfer information about you and your use of the Services. For example, cookies that we use tell us how many times you have visited the Services, your search preferences, and if you have clicked on an advertisement that has been displayed to you. We use “persistent” cookies to save your login information for future logins to the Services. We also use “session ID” cookies to enable certain features of the Services, to better understand how you interact with the Services and to monitor aggregate usage by users and web traffic routing on the Services. Unlike persistent cookies, session ID cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Services and close your browser. 
We, and third parties with whom we partner, may also deliver a file known as a web beacon, pixel or pixel tag (“Web Beacons”) to you through the Services from an ad network. Web Beacons are small, invisible graphic images that may be used on the Services interface or in emails relating to the Service to collect certain information and monitor user activity on the Service interface, such as to count visits, understand usage effectiveness and to determine if an email has been opened and acted upon. Web Beacons allow ad networks and service providers that we use to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us, for advertisers and our other partners. Web Beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and Web Beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

HOW DOES ARTSMILEY USE SOCIAL PLUGINS?

  • We may use social plugins on the Services, for instance plugins of the social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Tumblr, and may feature icons, like the “thumbs up” icon or text like “Recommend“, “Like“ or “Comment“. These cookies are activated once you start navigating the Services. Your browser may create a connection to the servers of such social networks and/or transmit data to such servers when you view a page on our website. If you use the plugin functionality (e.g. click the “Like” button or make a comment), this information is also transmitted directly to the social network by your browser and may be stored there. This Privacy Policy does not cover the practices of these third party social networks.

HOW DOES ARTSMILEY USE THIRD-PARTY ONLINE ADVERTISING OR ANALYTICS? 


  • Some of the advertisements you see on the Services or on emails we deliver to you are delivered by advertisers who collect information about your online activities with the emails we send and/or on the Services through the use of Cookies, Web Beacons, and other technologies. The third parties collecting this information may include, but are not limited to, Adaptive Media, BlueKai, Brightroll, Criteo, DoubleClick, Effective Measure, Google, MediaMath, Oracle, Pulse360, Quantcast, Rubicon Project, Turn and Yahoo. The use of cookies, web beacons, and other technologies by these third parties is subject to the privacy policies of those third parties. 
Some of these companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”), each of which offers a single location to opt out of receiving tailored ads from its member companies. To opt out of information collection by NAI member companies, or to obtain information about the technologies they use or their own privacy policies, please visit the NAI consumer opt out page located here. To opt out of information collection by DAA member companies, or to obtain information about the technologies they use or their own privacy policies, please visit the DAA consumer choices page located here. [To opt out of collection of your information by Signal, or to obtain information about the technologies Signal uses or its privacy policies, please visit here.] 
In addition, ArtSmiley works with third parties to provide analytics information regarding your usage of the Services or to help us track the advertisements that are delivered to you to determine the effectiveness of advertising on the Services. Third parties that use cookies, web beacons and other technologies to assist us with our traffic measurement, research and analytics include, but are not limited to, [Adjust, Adobe, Comscore, Effective Measure, LiveRamp, Tapad, Moat, and DoubleClick.

WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE?

  • Change Your Account Settings: You may add or update information, or change your account privacy settings which limits the other users who can see the information in your user profile and/or what information in your user profile is visible to others. The information you can view, update, or delete may change as the Services change.
  • Cookies: You can usually instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from our websites that you visit. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use all portions of the Services or all functionality of the Services.
  • Email or Postal Mail: If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate your preference by changing your account settings, contacting us through our website https://artsmiley.com/contact-us/ or by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in an email we send to you.
  • Deactivating Your Account: You can always choose not to disclose information to us or delete information, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our special features. You may request deactivation of your account by contacting us through our website https://artsmiley.com/contact-us/ if you are the manager of the account, or where you are an employee, you must contact the manager of the account who can contact us to deactivate your account.
  • De-Linking Account: You may de-link your account from an account on another service such as a social media account in your account setting. However, in order to de-link it completely, you may also have to adjust your account settings with the third party application. For example, if you want to de-link your Facebook account with ArtSmiley, you must de-link your accounts in both your account settings and in your Facebook application settings.

SECURITY

We use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of information collected and maintained through the Services. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorized persons or hardware or software failure.

DO NOT TRACK

We currently do not participate in any “Do Not Track” frameworks that would allow us to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your information. We may engage third parties, such as marketing or analytics partners, who may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use the Services.

SERVICES NOT DIRECTED TO CHILDREN

The Services are not directed to children under 18. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any information about yourself to us.

Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. By submitting such information, you consent to that transfer.
