Shaycom takes your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

Shaycom Inc. (“Shaycom”) operates the ArtLinked.com website. It is Shaycom’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Shaycom 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. Shaycom’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Shaycom’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Shaycom may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Shaycom also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Shaycom only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ArtLinked.com choose to interact with Shaycom in ways that require Shaycom to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Shaycom gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at ArtLinked.com to provide a name and email address. In addition, when signing up, a registered user can choose whether or not to allow the owner of a ArtLinked.com page to see their name when they visit that ArtLinked.com page. In each case, Shaycom collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Shaycom. Shaycom 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Shaycom may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to ArtLinked.com. For instance, Shaycom may monitor the most popular pages on ArtLinked.com. Shaycom may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Shaycom does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Shaycom discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Shaycom’s behalf or to provide services available at ArtLinked.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 ArtLinked.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Shaycom 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, Shaycom discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Shaycom believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Shaycom, third parties or the public at large. If you have an account on ArtLinked.com and have email notifications turned on, Shaycom may email you when someone takes an action on your ArtLinked.com page such as leaving a comment; Shaycom may also occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Shaycom and our services. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Shaycom takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Shaycom may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
