Privacy & Data Policies


This document sets forth the Artful Eye Creative Online Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") for this Web site, (the "Site"). If you have objections to the Privacy Policy, you should not access or use this Site. This Privacy Policy does not govern privacy practices associated with offline activities or other Artful Eye Creative web sites. Changes in Privacy Policy

All "personal information" ("personal information" is defined as any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains) that we collect and maintain will be subject to the version of the Privacy Policy in effect at the time of such collection. The Artful Eye Creative reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion, and will provide notice of material changes on the home page of the Site. If as the result of such changes, you want to alter the ways in which Artful Eye is allowed to use your personal information, you can do so by following the procedure described below in the section titled "Updating your personal information and privacy preferences." You will be deemed to have been made aware of, and will be subject to, the changes to the Privacy Policy by your continued use of the Site after such notice has been posted for thirty (30) days with the following exception: If at the time you provide personal information to Artful Eye you are given the opportunity (as you currently are) to limit how such information will be used to communicate with you, either by Artful Eye or by third parties, Artful Eye will not change your preference in this regard without your express consent. However, if Artful Eye sells assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) to another entity, or Artful Eye (or a division or subsidiary) is acquired by, or merged with, another entity, Artful Eye may provide to such entity customer information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity without your consent.

Entities collecting personal information

Personal information on this Site is collected by Artful Eye Creative. Artful Eye Creatives's address is 19141 McCowan Road, Mount Albert, Ontario Canada L0G 1M0 and its telephone number is 905-473-1118.

The Site contains links to other sites at which personal information is collected. In such instances, unless expressly provided to the contrary, the collection and use of your personal information will be governed by the privacy policy applicable to that site. That privacy policy should identify the entity that is collecting your personal information.

Collection of personal information

As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as subscribing to the collaboration services offered on the Site or utilizing online software applications, Artful Eye may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, Artful Eye may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. When ordering products or services on the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.

When you use the Site, Artful Eye or third parties authorized by Artful Eye may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Site and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol ("IP") address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the Site and its services. Artful Eye also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information.

When you submit personal information to Artful Eye through this Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which Artful Eye and its affiliates and subsidiaries maintain offices, including, without limitation, Canada. You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transferring, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted vendors of Artful Eye. Such vendors are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties. One instance where this could occur is in conjunction with framed pages in which the URL for the pages is not visible and the pages are being hosted by a vendor of Artful Eye.

Artful Eye has established relationships with various service providers whose services are available to you from this Site or from Web sites that are linked to this Site. Typically, these providers offer services that Artful Eye customers might find useful, such as those that can be used in conjunction with The Decal Zone services and products. In order to use those services, you may be required to provide personal information to the providers. Unless expressly provided to the contrary, personal information that you provide while you are visiting a provider's Web site will be subject to the privacy policy posted on such site, and personal information that you provide while on this Site in conjunction with a provider's service will be subject to this Privacy Policy. You should be aware that our agreements with these service providers often provide that they will share with Artful Eye personal information collected from you. In such instances, Artful Eye may use this information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy. In the situation where sites have an Artful Eye "look and feel," and you reasonably believe you are on an Artful Eye site, the site is collecting information in a solely intermediary capacity and does not use personal information for secondary purposes.

How your personal information is used

Artful Eye collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you subscribe to a service or register a product, for example, the information is used to register your rights, if any, to technical support or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. As another example, if you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Your personal information is also used to keep you informed about product updates, special offers, and other products and services of Artful Eye and selected third parties if you have so opted to receive such communications.

Artful Eye may collect information about the use of the Site, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. Artful Eye may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.

Your choices with respect to personal information

Artful Eye recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on this Site. Without your consent, Artful Eye will not communicate any information to you regarding products, services, and special offers available from Artful Eye, although we may find it necessary to communicate with you regarding your use of the services on this Site. Except in the particular circumstances described in this Privacy Policy, Artful Eye will also not provide your name to other companies or organizations without your consent.

There are other instances in which Artful Eye may divulge your personal information. Artful Eye may provide your personal information if necessary, in Artful Eye's good faith judgment, to comply with laws or regulations of a governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant, or order or to protect the rights of Artful Eye or others.

Protection of your personal information

The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of Artful Eye products or services or registering an Artful Eye product is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Registration Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Registration Information resides on a secure server that only selected Artful Eye personnel and contractors have access to via password. Artful Eye encrypts your personal information and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to Artful Eye.

Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on a secure server and is only accessible to selected Artful Eye personnel and contractors via password. Since this information is not accessible by you, you will not be asked to select a password in order to view or modify such information.

Use of cookies

When you visit this Site, you can browse the Site and access important information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our Site, we use "cookies" to track your visit. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a Web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card, and enables Artful Eye to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. (For some Web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)

While Artful Eye uses cookies to track your visit to, and our Web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, Artful Eye does not generally use this information to identify you personally. However, if you expressly provide consent for to "remember" the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on the site, that unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer, linked to your registration information, and your navigation path around the site will be tracked. We associate this data to understand how our site and services are being used so we can understand our customers and offer appropriate products and services.

We want you to feel confident about using Artful Eye, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect.

For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they only may do so for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption when transmitting your personal information between your system and ours, and between our system and those of the parties with whom we share sensitive information, and we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your information.

We access, preserve and share your information with regulators, law enforcement or others:

  • In response to a legal request, if we have a good-faith belief that the law requires us to do so. We can also respond to legal requests when we have a good-faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards.

  • When we have a good-faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud, unauthorized use of the Products, violations of our terms or policies, or other harmful or illegal activity; to protect ourselves (including our rights, property or Products), you or others, including as part of investigations or regulatory inquiries; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, if relevant, we provide information to and receive information from third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud, abuse and other harmful activity on and off Artful Eye.
