Your privacy is important to us. We strive to protect your data from any unauthorized access. We will never give out any data collected from you without your permission. We will not give out your name or any identifying information about specific Users to any third party. Nor will we use any email address you provide for any third-party solicitations without your permission.
We may send you email messages to keep you apprised of your membership status and inform you of new services and/or features available to you. Included in each of these messages are simple instructions on how to remove yourself from these mailings if you do not wish to receive them in the future.
We collect limited personal information from our Users. We require you to provide a first and last name to create an account. This name may be real or fictitious. First and last names, as provided when an account is opened, will be posted on the ILLUSTRATIONEXCHANGE.com website as the "contributor" of all submitted illustrations associated with that account. We also require that you provide an email address. No other personal information will be solicited. Usernames and email addresses are retained and stored solely on our secure server.
To ensure the privacy of all Paid Users, payments are processed through a secure third party billing system. That system has established safeguards to ensure the security and confidentiality of your personal information. These safeguards include protection against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of the information, as well as protection against the unauthorized access to or use of this information. When you interact with this system, all of your information, including your credit card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Socket Layers (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes your browser to encrypt your information before transmitting it to a secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent others from capturing and viewing your personal information. While we are dedicated to the protection of your personal information from unauthorized use or disclosure, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. ILLUSTRATIONEXCHANGE.com cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to our billing service.
