Sharing Information / Third-Party Disclosures
7. Social Media
We may engage with you on various social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram). If you contact us on a social media platform for customer support or for other reasons, we may contact you via the social media’s direct message tools. Your use of a social media platform is subject to the policies and terms of the relevant social media platform. Certain social media platforms may also automatically provide us with your personal information, and the information we receive will depend on the terms that govern your use of the social media platform(s) and any privacy settings you may have set. The Site may, from time to time, include social media features and widgets (e.g., the “Facebook Like” button, the “Share This” button) or interactive mini-programs that run on the Site. These features may collect your IP address and which Site page you are accessing and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy statement of the relevant social media platform that provides them.

9. Data Retention and Localization
We seek to protect the security of your personal information and use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. HOWEVER, NO INFORMATION SYSTEM CAN BE FULLY SECURE AND WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THE ABSOLUTE SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. MOREOVER, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO THE SITE AND/OR THE SERVICES OVER NETWORKS THAT WE DO NOT CONTROL, INCLUDING THE INTERNET AND WIRELESS NETWORKS, AND YOU PROVIDE US WITH ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION AND DATA AT YOUR OWN RISK. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE OR OTHERWISE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA INCIDENT OR EVENT THAT MAY COMPROMISE THE CONFIDENTIALITY, INTEGRITY, OR SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. The safety and security of your personal information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a username and password to access our Services, you are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of those credentials and not revealing them to others. You must contact us immediately if you have reason to believe that your username or password to our Services has been compromised. You acknowledge and agree that we may contact you via email or other electronic communications in the event we are legally required to notify you of a data security incident or event related to your personal information.
11. No Data Collected from Children
The Site is not directed at, nor intended for use by, children. As a result, if you are under the age of thirteen (13), you are prohibited from accessing or using the Services (including the Site) or with providing us with your personal information. ACMI believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and should consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a safe online environment for children to work within. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing personal information without parental permission. If the parent or guardian of a child under the age of thirteen (13) believes that the child has provided us with any information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us if they want this information deleted from our files, and we will undertake commercially reasonable measures to seek to comply with such a request.
12. Publicly Posted Information; Product Reviews
You may, from time to time, have the ability to submit via the Site a comment on, provide an opinion about, rate, or otherwise discuss our Services, art-related products and manufacturing, and similar issues (a “Product Review
”). In other circumstances, you may directly provide us feedback on our business, our business sector, or the Services (“Feedback
”). Any information or content you post in a Product Review or in your Feedback may be available to other users of the Site (and our social media platforms) and may be retrievable by third-party search engines, and third parties may also be able to download or share your Product Review and Feedback to social media websites or elsewhere. We recommend that you guard your privacy and anonymity and not upload any information in your Product Review and Feedback that you wish to remain confidential. Any third party with access to your information via the Site will be permitted to use the information in the same manner as if you submitted the information directly to that third party. Publicly posting any information on the Site is entirely voluntary on your part, and we recommend you carefully consider the information you choose to make publicly available. As between you and ACMI, any and all Product Reviews and Feedback shall be considered ACMI’s confidential and proprietary information. In order for ACMI to utilize such Product Reviews and Feedback, you grant to ACMI a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, under all relevant intellectual property rights, to use, publish, and disclose such Product Reviews and Feedback in any manner we choose and to display, perform, copy, make, have made, use, sell, and otherwise dispose of ACMI’s and our sub-licensees’ products or services embodying such Product Reviews and Feedback in any manner and via any media we choose, without reference to the source. ACMI shall be entitled to use Product Reviews and Feedback for any purpose without restriction or remuneration of any kind with respect to you and/or your representatives.
13. Your Responsibilities
You are permitted, and hereby agree, to only provide personal information to ACMI if such personal information is accurate, reliable, and relevant to our relationship and only to the extent such disclosure will not violate any applicable data protection law, statute, or regulation or infringe upon a person’s data privacy rights or privileges.

If your account does not contain such features, then you must directly notify ACMI of any changes or updates to your personal information in accordance with the “Contact Us” section listed below.
15. Email Marketing and Your Rights
You have the right to opt out of receiving email marketing communications and direct-mail marketing from us.

You may also unsubscribe from email and direct-mail marketing by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section listed below. Due to production, mailing and system timelines, it may take some time to process your request. Until your requested change takes effect, you may still receive communications from us. If you send us your request by regular mail, please allow extra time for us to receive your notice. Please note: Although you may have opted not to receive communications, you may still receive business-related communications such as order confirmations, product recall notices, membership information, or other communications that are necessary to complete your transaction. You hereby agree to immediately notify ACMI, in writing, in the event you no longer own, license, or use an email address to which you subscribed to receive email marketing from us.

Data Protection Rights. If you are located in the EU, Switzerland, or the UK, you have the following data protection rights: • Right to Know
. ACMI does not engage in any activity that subjects our members, Site users, survey participants, or others to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects, or similarly significantly results, impacting them. • Access Rights
. You may ask us whether we process any of your personal information and, if so, receive access to such personal information. When complying with an access request, we will also provide you with additional information, such as the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal information concerned as well as any other information necessary for you to exercise the essence of this right. • Rectification
. You have the right to have your personal information corrected/rectified in case of inaccuracy or incompleteness. Upon request, we will correct inaccurate personal information about you and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, update any incomplete personal information, which may include the provision of a supplementary statement. • Erasure
. You have the right to have your personal information erased, which means the deletion of your personal information by us and, where possible, any other controller to whom your data has previously been disclosed. However, your right to erasure is subject to statutory limits and prerequisites (e.g., where your personal information is no longer necessary in relation to the initial purposes for which it was processed, your personal information was processed unlawfully). • Restriction of Processing
. You have the right to obtain the restriction of the processing of your personal information, which means that we suspend the processing of your personal information for a certain period of time. Circumstances which may give rise to this right include situations where the accuracy of your personal information is contested but we need time to verify the inaccuracy (if any) of your personal information. • Data Portability
. You have the right to request us to provide you with your personal information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to have such data transmitted directly to another controller, where technically feasible. • Right to Object
. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal information, which means you may request us to no longer process your personal information. This only applies in case the “legitimate interests” ground (including profiling) constitutes the legal basis for processing (see below “Legal Basis for Processing”). However, at any time (and free of charge) you can object to having your personal information processed for direct marketing purposes. • Withdrawing Consent
. You also may withdraw your consent at any time if we are solely relying on your consent for the processing of your personal information. However, this will not impact our legal basis to process such personal information prior to the withdrawal of your consent.
To exercise any of these data privacy rights, please contact us, or have your designated agent contact us, in accordance with the “Contact Us” section listed below. To the extent permitted by law, we will need to verify your identity (or the identity of your agent) and ensure the authenticity of your request. Legal Basis for Processing. We process your personal information in accordance with the legal bases set forth in law. For example, our processing of personal information (as described herein) is justified based on the following legal grounds: • Consent
. Processing is based on your consent (e.g., you register to receive our marketing materials, you voluntarily contact us). • Legitimate Interests
. Processing is necessary for our legitimate interests as set out herein (e.g., monitoring your use of the Site and your compliance with the terms and conditions governing the same, improving our Services). • Contract Undertaking
. Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party (e.g., you purchase or consider purchasing our Services). • Legal Compliance
. Processing is required to comply with a legal or statutory obligation (e.g., tax disclosures).
Complaints. In the event you have concerns about our data processing, you have the right to file a complaint with your data protection authority. For data protection authorities in the EU, please see here: https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/about-edpb/members_en

). For the data protection authority in the UK, please contact the Information Commissioner’s Office (www.ico.org.uk
). We would, however, appreciate the opportunity to deal with your concerns before you approach a data protection authority with a complaint, and invite you to contact us in the first instance.

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the website with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are even aware of them. Unless otherwise required by law, we currently do not take action in response to these signals.
