II. SUMMARY

Here's the deal. The internet has a lot of great advantages, and it enables people to interact in many different ways. As a result of interaction, data and information can be obtained from you. We only want to use that information in a ways that are known by you in advance, and in ways that are acceptable to you.

The information that may be collected from you, generally, falls into three (3) categories.
• Anonymous electronic footprints. When our computers are "communicating" with another, that is, when you are surfing our pages, our computer identifies your computer and accumulates certain information, such as which pages you visited, and how long you were there. But we don't know your name, where you live, etc. We use this anonymous information to figure out what people like about our site, how many visitors we get, and so forth. We share this information with advertisers and others so they will know how valuable it is to be associated with our site and we'll hopefully make some money and nobody gets hurt.
• Contact information. It is always up to you, but you may GIVE us your e-mail address, or other method of contacting you. When you do this, we assume that you want us to communicate directly with you. So that's exactly what we'll do unless and until you tell us to stop. Then we'll sulk but immediately abide by your request.  Inasmuch as this is a commercial sales site, we assume that the only people who provide us with personal information are of legal age to purchase items, namely, age 18 or over.  IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, PLEASE DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, INCLUDING YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS OR MAILING ADDRESS.
• Personally identifiable information. This is personal information about you, such as your name, address, phone number, et cetera. Again, we only get this information if you VOLUNTARILY GIVE it to us, and when you do, we assume that you want us to use it. If you later change your mind, we'll stop using it immediately.  Again, we assume that only people age 18 or older will provide us with personally identifiable information – if you are under this age, please do not submit any personally identifiable information to us.

When you provide us with contact information or other personally identifiable information, we may ask you if you want to receive “Garfield” related information.  If you indicate that you do want to receive such information, then we will only use such information to contact you with respect to “Garfield” related news and information.  If you ever want to stop receiving such information, you only need to contact us at:
Garfield's Art Gallery & Collectibles
5440 E. County Rd., 450 N.
Albany, IN 47320
Email: collectibles@garfieldcollectibles.com

III. POLICIES

1. WE RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY
We respect your privacy, and therefore we want to disclose to you how we may use information which you provide to us online, and give you some options to limit or restrict such use(s). Since Internet technologies and the Internet environment are rapidly changing, these guidelines are subject to change, and any such changes will be posted on this page.

2. INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED ONLINE  
Our web server automatically recognizes the IP address (the location of your computer on the Internet) and the action of each visitor while on our site. It also takes a picture of your bedroom. (Just kidding on that last one). Such information is used in the aggregate (and not specific to you or your specific usage) to improve our site, and may be shown to others (such as potential advertisers) to "profile" aggregate site usage. Information automatically collected, and specific to your usage of the site, is only used for error tracking.

Our web server deposits tasteless, odorless, no-fat cookies on the hard drive of your computer when it visits our site to make your visit a more enjoyable experience. We also use cookies to make sure you don't see the same ad repeatedly. The use of cookies is standard in the internet industry. Your browser probably has a feature that will refuse our cookies (as would Garfield), or at least notify you before a cookie is placed, but utilizing this feature may interfere with your enjoyment of the Site.

We do NOT use cookies to identify specific individuals, except when you specifically disclose such information to us. We do NOT use cookies for promotional or marketing purposes, nor is that information shared with any third party.
You may also occasionally get cookies from our advertisers or other participants on our Site. These cookies are not controlled by us, and are subject to the privacy policies of the provider.
This site is hosted by Shopify.  We are told by Shopify that they only track the IP address of visitors to this site, and referring websites, but they do not place tracking cookies.
 
3. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
You will not be able to resist the temptation to give us information about yourself. For example, you will undoubtedly want to buy something, or request information. So we may feel compelled to ask you to provide your name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address, and other personally identifiable information. We also request credit card information for stuff you want to buy, and so we can shopping later (that last part was a joke!). Credit card information is encrypted for security purposes, and is not shared with any other firm except as necessary to process your order.

We will obviously use the information you give us for the specific purpose for which it was given. We will also use it to improve our Site, and to improve the way that we do business. Unless you request otherwise at the time you provide the information, we may also use your personally identifiable information to communicate with you about the GARFIELD collectible items, and other GARFIELD-related information.

4. INFORMATION WE DO NOT SHARE WITH OTHERS
We do not sell or trade telephone numbers, or specific information about your household. Except to verify credit card information and process orders, we do not use or disclose your credit card information for any purpose. For privacy purposes, we store all customer information in a highly secure server.

If you have any questions about the offerings on this site, you may ponder them, talk to your friends or advisors, or ask us:
