Children (persons under the age of 18) are not eligible to use this Web Site unsupervised and we ask that children do not register for an account or submit any personal information to us. By using this Web Site unsupervised, and/or registering for an account, you warrant that you are 18 years of age or older.
If you use our referral service for informing a friend about our Web Site, or inviting a friend to view your lightbox, we will ask you for the friend's name and email address. Pixmac will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Web Site. Pixmac does not retain this information.
Your profile information (such as company type and language preference) in the registration form is used by Pixmac to create personalized content, services, and advertising on the Web Site. Pixmac may also profile your Web Site activity in order to accurately track your account and provide you with Pixmac products and services that correspond to your interests. Pixmac may also compile data in aggregate form so that we may better understand the users that are visiting our Web Site. For example, we may produce reports on the most popular search terms by collecting general search term data based on individual searches. Aggregate data is anonymous and does not contain any personal information that identifies a user. Pixmac may provide non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our Web Site users to third parties for their audit, research and analytical purposes.
Automatically Collected Information
As is true of most web sites, when you access and use the Web Site, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Web Site, to track users' movements around the Web Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do link this automatically collected data to personally identifiable information. IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable information to segregate customer types for analytical purposes.
Use of Service Providers
We occasionally hire or partner with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as managing and handling the processing and delivery of mailings (both email and postal mail), providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Change of Address or Contact Information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, or delete inaccuracies in your information by making the change through the "Customer Service" page of our Web Site, by emailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below. Your request will be processed and implemented within thirty (30) days.
Pixmac has a number of operational functions in place to protect the confidentiality of personal information. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in secured facilities. Pixmac' employees are trained and kept up-to-date on our security procedures. If you have any questions about the security at our Web Site, you can send an email to email@example.com. We use SSL encryption technologies to transmit sensitive information such as a credit card number to our servers. However, perfect security on the Internet does not exist, and Pixmac does not warrant that its Web Site is impenetrable or invulnerable to hackers.
When you visit the Web Site, Pixmac sends your computer a cookie, which is a small file that resides on your computer's hard drive and contains non-personally identifiable information about the user. Cookies only identify the user's computer. Cookies allow Pixmac to make its Web Site more useful by storing information about your preferences. For example, Pixmac will send your computer a cookie to maintain default settings such as your language preference. You can set your browser's options not to accept cookies, but this may prevent you from accessing all of the features of the Pixmac Web Site. Pixmac uses a third party to assist in managing the licensing of our images. This third party uses clear GIFs, a tiny 1x1 pixel GIF, to digitally watermark our images, in both a visible and invisible manner. When you purchase a licensed image from us, the visible watermark is then removed from the image, however, in certain lower resolution images, an invisible watermark may remain, allowing Pixmac and the third party to track certain usage of such images on the Internet.
Surveys, Promotions, and Contests
Participation in surveys, promotions, or contests on the Web Site is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose personal information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award promotional gifts prizes. Survey information will be used for the purposes of monitoring or improving the use of the Web Site.
Pixmac may offer discussion threads and comment boxes on the Web Site. If you use Pixmac' discussion threads or comment boxes, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these discussion threads.
Please be aware that the Web Site may contain links to other sites that are covered by their own privacy policies. Pixmac is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and we encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site. We recommend that our users read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
