When you access or use the Services and/or the Site, we collect various personal information. We use this information to provide you with the Services, improve them, ensure their security, manage our partner relationships, protect our and others’ rights and interests and to comply with law, such as tax and other government regulations.

(a) Personal Information provided by you.
We collect personal information when you sign up with us and create an account to use our Services or are invited to become a User by another User. Specifically, we collect your name, last time and email address.

We use this information to set up your Account, identify you, provide our Services and contact you, communicate with you about your transactions or send you emails about our Service-related announcements, offers, promotions and respond to your inquiries. If you wish not to receive such marketing or promotional communications, you can follow the unsubscribe instructions included in those communications. We may also periodically email you important information, announcements, reminders regarding our Services or security, privacy and administrative issues related to your use of the Services and emails related to your transactions. We also use your personal information to make sure that we comply with legal requirements.

(b) Usage session details.
Art Schema automatically receives information about your activity on our Services or Users’ sites from your browser, such as how and when you sign in to your account, your IP address, your device or browser type, operating system, internet service provider, preference settings, location information, language, cookies, the web pages you visited before coming to our or our Users’ websites and information about how you browse through the Services or our Users’ sites.

We use this information to give you access to and to improve the performance of the Services, analyze how these Services are used, evaluate them, monitor the effectiveness of our advertising, remember your preferences and customize and personalize the Services for you. For example, we can use your location information to determine your language preferences, display specific offers and provide you accurate date information. We may use IP addresses to estimate the number of our users from the geographical regions and to prevent abuse of the system. This is usually done based on anonymous and pseudonymized information. You can read more about how we use these technologies in our Cookie Policy, which is incorporated by reference in this Privacy Policy. We may also use some information we hold about you to send you communications based on your Account Type and what we think may interest you.

We collect payment details from our payment processor (such as your credit card information) if you sign up for Paid Services.

We use this information to provide you with Art Schema Paid Services, process payments, invoice you and to comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements. We may ask you to select your jurisdiction when you sign up for Paid Services to determine how much tax we need to collect from you, if any. We transmit your payment information via an encrypted connection to our Payment Processor when you provide or update your payment information to use the Paid Services. We do not store any of your sensitive billing details. Our Payment Processor uses and processes your payment information in accordance with its own Privacy Policy. If your subscription is auto-renewing, our Payment Processor stores your payment information on its secure payment gateway until termination of the subscription.

(h) Identity verification
We may require you to verify your identity if, for example, we have concerns about identity fake, or if we need to authenticate your account or for other legal reasons. Pleas note, that your refusal to provide such personal information may result in being unable to use our Services if that information is necessary to provide you with the Services or if we are legally obliged to collect that information.

However, regardless of the measures taken by us, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of your personal information or any other content you upload or share with us and you do so at your own risk. No service and no data transmissions over the Internet are completely secure. We make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems and to keep your information safe.
