What data do we collect automatically and why? When you visit Persianink.com (or Persian-tattoo.com) and you have not otherwise identified yourself (e.g., via registration with a Persian Ink Site), our web server automatically recognizes your domain name, but not your e-mail address. We collect the domain name and monitor general site use and traffic patterns to improve our web site and the products and services we offer. Persian Ink uses web server logs to collect
data for metric purposes. Examples of the types of data collected on the logs are IP addresses, referral pages, date and time of site access, and pages visited. We may use collected data to customize the content and/or layout of our pages for each individual visitor.
Do we collect personal information? In some cases, Persian Ink requests personally identifiable information from you in order to satisfy the underlying transaction or purpose of your accessing the Site. Examples of personally identifiable information include names, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, and the like. Please note that we do not consider aggregated information, from which personally identifiable information has been removed, to be private.
What security is provided? We do not treat your general interaction with Persianink.com as confidential. However, certain Persian Ink sites do conduct transactions for which heightened security is appropriate. For instance, certain Persian Ink Sites encrypt your personal information (e.g., for transmission of credit card data),
so that only appropriate personnel are able to decode your information. Note that most internet browsers also offer security alerts that permit you to determine whether your transmissions are protected.
When would we disclose your information? We do not rent, sell, or trade any personally identifiable information about you (e.g., e-mail addresses) to third parties. Certain Persian Ink sites may disclose information to third parties assisting us in processing a transaction requested by you (e.g., credit card service providers). In order to cooperate with legitimate governmental requests, subpoenas, or court orders, to protect Persian Ink and/or its systems and customers, or to ensure the integrity and operation of Persian Ink and/or its business and systems, Persian Ink may access and disclose any information it considers necessary or appropriate under the circumstances.
What about children's privacy? Persian Ink asks people under 18 not to transmit any information to the Site.
What if data is transmitted internationally? If you are one of our international guests, we realize that you may want to know whether your personal information will be transferred out of your country of origin. Please be aware that when you register or request a transaction on a Persian Ink site, your personal data may be transferred to computers in the United States in order to process your request.
What about external links? For the convenience of our Site visitors, Persian Ink may provide links to third party web sites that are external to Persian Ink. These web sites are not operated or controlled by Persian Ink, and Persian Ink is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external web sites.
