Your Privacy & Security is Important to Us

We take your privacy and security very seriously.  For that reason, we have chosen to use Paypal exclusively for all checkout procedures.  Paypal is the world’s #1 payment processor and is preferred by more merchants than any other processor due to its highly encrypted and secure system.

Why Paypal?

#1 Safety and Security:  Your financial information is not entered on our site and we NEVER see your credit card or other financial information.  We work on bringing you great art history resources and leave Paypal to do what they do best – encrypting and securing your payment for ultimate protection.

#2 Choice of Payments:  With Paypal, you can use your preferred payment of choice.  Paypal accepts all four major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.  For those customers who have a Paypal account, additional payment methods are available such as e-checks via bank accounts or direct payment from Paypal accounts, etc.

#3 No Paypal Account Required:  If you already have a Paypal account – great – just enter your password and fly through checkout.  No account?  No problem!  Paypal no longer requires users to have an account.  They will, of course, ask if you would like to create one, but there is no pressure to do so and your decision in no way effects your order.

#4 Still Rack Up Points:  Not only do customers receive the security and privacy benefits of Paypal checkout, but you still earn points towards all major credit card and debit card bonus programs – now that’s a win-win situation!

ADDITIONAL PRIVACY POINTS IN A NUTSHELL

The only personal data we store is what users have provided us with out of a contractual necessity to process and ship orders and keep customers informed.  This information includes names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc., but as noted above, does NOT include financial information.  We do not pass any personal information on to third parties unless it is absolutely necessary for completing an order – such as processing a payment (Paypal) or shipping (USPS).  You can update your data via your account settings at any time or contact us with questions through our online contact form.  We only retain data so long as it is necessary for processing order and/or maintaining contact with customers regarding upcoming offers, etc.  By using this site, you are agreeing to these terms and the use of your data as noted above, and in more detail below.
