The only information I collect from you is the bare minimum I need for my site to function and to deliver any products you order from me. This information is NEVER shared with any other company or person, with the exceptions of my payment processing company, PayPal, and the photographic print companies that create my prints when they are shipped directly to you.
Cookies & Session IDs: Cookies are simply harmless alphanumeric identifier codes. If you use my online store, the software that runs the store may store cookies, or other types of session IDs, on your computer to keep track of your shopping session, and to maintain the products in your cart for immediate, or future, checkout. This information is necessary for the software to function properly, and is never seen by any people, nor is it shared with any other company, or used in any other way. Your browser has privacy settings which allow you to determine how it handles cookies. While you may choose to disable cookies for this site, please be aware that my online store software may not work properly if you do so.
E-Mail: Your e-mail information is ONLY collected when you place an order through my online store, sign up for my mailing list, or if you contact me via e-mail or my contact form. Your e-mail is NOT stored in any type of mailing list unless you specifically sign up for my mailing list and properly respond to the verification e-mail (so that nobody else can sign up your e-mail without your knowledge). You may unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time. I NEVER give out e-mail addresses to any other company or person. However, my payment processing companies, PayPal and Stripe, requires an e-mail address to process your payments to me. Please refer to their privacy policies for information on how they use your e-mail address.
Mailing Address: I must collect your mailing address information in order to ship any prints you order and to calculate sales tax. My store software must also pass this information onto my payment processing company, PayPal. All of this is done through encrypted secure SSL software connections.
Payment Processing Through PayPal or Stripe: I use both PayPal and Stripe to process payments. In order for them to process the payments, they must collect certain information from you. Please refer to their privacy policies to see how they use the information.

Credit Card & Bank Account Information: My own online order system encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to my server using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL).
My site only asks for your address information for billing and sales tax, and passes that information to the PayPal, or Stripe, payment processing system using the same encrypted SSL connection. Only PayPal, or Stripe, sees your credit card or checking account information. The only information I see is whether or not the transaction was successful along with your e-mail and physical address information so that I may deliver the products to you as well as let you know the status of your order.
