Our service provider makes a record of your visit to our Web site and logs information from your browser including your IP address the date and time of you visit, the pages accessed, documents downloaded and the type of browser used.

In addition, when you use our online search facility we collect information about what you are searching for. Art Stamps uses that information to evaluate our service and determine if we are providing the products and services you desire. The information collected is not linked back to the individual.

When making a purchase from Art Stamps via our Web site, if you are an Australian customer, and you would prefer not to enter your credit card details though the internet, you may contact us after you submit your online order to arrange one of the following alternative methods of payment: providing us with your credit card details over the phone; faxing your credit card details to us; mailing a cheque or money order to Art Stamps or paying via PayPal.
If we collect personal information about you from someone else, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are aware that you may gain access to that information, the purpose of its collection and the organisations to which that information may be disclosed.
Failure to provide us with the requested information, particularly the requested information marked with an asterisk on our Web site, may result in a delay in providing you with goods or services requested from us or may mean that we cannot provide you with those goods or services.
Art Stamps will only collect personal information by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Art Stamps only uses or discloses personal information it collects about you in compliance with the Act. Art Stamps does not sell or rent your personal information to any third party without your permission.

Art Stamps may disclose personal information it collects to third party oganisations such as contractors who assist Art Stamps in the operation of its business and to enable those contractors to perform functions on behalf of Art Stamps. For example, your personal information may be supplied to mailing houses to enable the delivery of our mail order catalogues to you. Personal information may also be supplied to third parties to allow credit card payment authorisation, marketing and promotions. Where information is disclosed to such third parties we will prohibit the third party from using your personal information except for the specific purpose for which we supply it.

Where we receive a request from you with respect to your privacy options as noted above, we will use our reasonable efforts to delete the relevant personal information from our records.
