General Privacy Statement

City Gallery has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for the city-gallery.com (City Gallery) website.

city-gallery.com does not release any information we acquire about visitors to our web site to anyone. We may release information as necessary to process orders. We may release aggregate information about our visitors demographics or use of the site (total counts of visitors, how many are from a particular area, etc.). However, since we have very little to no advertising on our site, even this is a rare occurrence.

Unsolicited Email, Advertising and Third-Party Promotions

city-gallery.com does not buy, rent, or otherwise acquire lists of email addresses from outside sources or anyone for the purpose of making sales contacts. We do not and never will display popup ads for anyone on this site. If such advertisements appears on this site they are coming from an outside source, such as software on your computer that modifies the content of web pages you are visiting.

We make every attempt to protect your email address from being collected by junk email businesses "harvesting" addresses from web pages. We make every effort to choose web applications that do not display your email address directly on a web page. We choose applications that identify you by a user name instead of an email address.

Email Address

To prevent abuse of our site we require all members (users who have registered in order to enable special features) of our site to submit a valid email address. Your email address will not be sold, leased or given to any third party except where required to by applicable law or by the ruling of a court with proper jurisdiction.

Email Newsletter, Updates, Mailing Lists

To receive an email newsletter or join an email discussion group operated by our site you must choose to join ("opt-in"). We will never add your email address to our list without asking for your permission. Members of our site may receive notices of important issues affecting security or their ability to use site features.

Cookies

To use some features of our site you must have "session cookies" enabled. A session cookie is a piece of information temporarily stored in memory on your computer. When you close your web browser the session cookie is deleted from memory. Session cookies do not remain stored on your computer and cannot be used to track your movements between web sites or collection information about you once you leave our site. The typical use for a session cookie is to store a number uniquely identifying your visit so a web application does not lose track of you between page views.

Information derived from our cookies is never shared with anyone.

Automatically Recorded Information

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address is also used to help identify you to interactive features, such as a message board or shopping cart (depends on what feature you are using). Some features of our site may record your IP address as a deterrent to vandalism, such as the posting of offensive or illegal material to interactive features.

Our web server records information about requests for web pages. This information is never shared with anyone and is routinely discarded after analysis. Aggregate information about browsing activities and demographic data may be shared with third parties. No personally identifying information is shared. Example: the number of users viewing a certain page on a weekly basis.

No personally identifiable information about your browsing activities will be revealed to any third party without the legal order of a court with valid jurisdiction.
