Cookie Use:

Depending on how you have configured your browser, when you shop at our web site we use cookies. Cookies are small pieces of data, which are stored on your computer to allow your web browser to remember something about our web site. However, the information they retain only identifies the path that someone using one computer takes through our site. No information that makes a user personally identifiable is retained in any cookie.

When Information May be Disclosed to Outside Parties:

The following are the limited instances where we may disclose your personal information to third parties:

We reserve the right to co-operate with local, national, or international law enforcement or other authorities in the investigation of improper or unlawful activities and this may require the disclosure of personal information. If such an investigation requires disclosure of personal information kept in our records, we may be required by law to cooperate.

Our Employees and your Personal Information:

In the course of daily operations, access to private, sensitive and confidential information is restricted to authorized employees who have a legitimate business purpose and reason for accessing it. For example, when you call us, our designated employees will access your information to verify who you are and to assist you in fulfilling your requests.

As a condition of their employment, all of our employees are required to abide by the privacy standards we have established. Employees are informed about the importance of privacy and they are required to abide by the Principle surrounding the information handling practices enumerated herein.

Unauthorized access to and/or disclosure of personal information by one of our employees is strictly prohibited. All employees are expected to maintain the confidentiality of personal information at all times and failing to do so will result in appropriate disciplinary measures, which may include dismissal.

How We Safeguard Your Information:

We use industry standard technologies and maintain current security standards to ensure that your personal information is protected against theft, loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, inappropriate alteration or misuse.

Electronic customer files are kept in a highly secured environment with restricted access. Paper-based files are stored in locked filing cabinets. Access is also restricted.

We manage our server environment appropriately and our firewall infrastructure is strictly adhered to. Our security practices are reviewed on a regular basis and we routinely employ current technologies to ensure that the confidentiality and privacy of your information is not compromised.

Any personal information you provide to www.artistsforhumanrights.org for the purchase of merchandise is exchanged on a secure server. We use one of today's most advanced security systems, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, to encrypt, or encode, information you send to us in the order process. The encryption process protects your information, such as your credit card number, billing and shipping information by scrambling it before it is sent from your computer. Only once we receive your information is it decoded, and we make all reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our own systems.

Warning: e-mail is not a secure means to send personal information, as it is not encrypted. We strongly encourage you to use our secure ordering process when ordering online. While we make many efforts to ensure the security of your personal information, because of the nature of data transmission over the Internet, we cannot guarantee it and you transmit your personal information to us at your own risk.

You have the right to access, verify and amend the information held in your personal files. You may access and verify any of your information by mailing our customer contact center at info@artistsforhumanrights.org or by writing to:

To help us keep your personal information up-to-date, we encourage you to amend inaccuracies and make corrections as often as necessary. Despite our efforts, errors sometimes do occur. Should you identify any incorrect or out-of-date information in your file(s), we will make the proper changes. Where appropriate, we will communicate these changes to other parties who may have unintentionally received incorrect information from us.
