How and When We Collect Information
The Studio collects "personal" information when it is provided to us during the purchase process. For example, if you purchase Artwork from ©Ponderosa Studio, we may collect your name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number and email address to process a transaction. If you sign up to receive a newsletter, we will collect your email address. If you are no longer interested in receiving newsletters, e-mail announcements, or other information from us, please e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your complete name, e-mail address and mailing address.
What We Do With Your Information
The Studio is committed to protecting the Purchaser's privacy. Under no circumstances do we rent, trade or share your e-mail address with anyone else for marketing purposes. We use personal information for internal purposes only, to ensure an accurate efficient purchase transaction.
From time to time, a Purchaser may receive information from ©Ponderosa Studio via email or postal mail about new Artwork being added to the website, or special events involving the Studio or the Artist.
The personal information that is shared with us when a Purchaser places an order, is used to process and fulfill your order. We partner with Stripe, an American technology company designed to accept payments for purchases made over the Internet. Stripe accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards, but does not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purpose.
The Studio/Ginger Reddington may need to disclose Purchaser personal and non-personal information to a successor-in-interest, if we should we ever decide to sell ©Ponderosa Studio Art business. Or, the Studio/Ginger Reddington may need to disclose Purchaser personal information when required by law, when a good-faith belief exists that such action is necessary to comply with judicial proceeding, court order or legal process.

How We Protect Your Information
The security of your personal information is very important to us. When you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information. For purchases made online with credit cards, the credit card number is stored in encrypted form for a limited amount of time. We do not store PIN data or 3-digit security codes. Because your purchase transaction for Artwork is handled by a secure third party, the Artist and Studio employees do not have access to your credit card information.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us from unauthorized access or disclosure, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access or other acts of third parties, or other acts or omissions.
Our services are intended for users ages 18 and older. Therefore, we will not knowingly collect or use any personal information from persons that we know to be under the age of 18. In addition, we will delete any information in our database that we know originates from a child under the age of 18.
