Cookies

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personal information, although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided.

Use of Information

We use information voluntarily provided only for the purpose it is provided for, whether that purpose is to answer questions, provide additional information, send a newsletter, or send an order.

We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better site for you. We often track search terms used to find us through Internet search engines, but we don't track this to identify individuals; it is used only to help make this site easily found if you are looking for watercolor reproductions.
