The privacy and protection of clients' personal data is of utmost importance to PICTUREVALUATION. We want clients to be completely confident when communicating with us, and when providing us with personal information, photographs and details of their items. Our practices in relation to the collection and use of personal data are outlined below.
Information Collection and Use
You can generally visit our Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, in certain sections of this Site, and when you use our Services, we may invite you to provide information, upload images, contact us with questions or comments, contact us with feedback, or complete a registration form.
Due to the nature of some of these activities, we may collect personally identifiable information that you submit, such as your name, email address and phone number.
We may use your personally identifiable information to register you to use our Site and Services, deliver certain Services, provide notices regarding Services you have purchased, verify your authority to enter our Site, and improve the content and general administration of the Site, and our Services.
We will not share your Personal Data with anyone outside PICTUREVALUATION without your consent, except as set out in this policy under 'Disclosure', below. We may provide your personally identifiable information to employees, agents or contractors that PICTUREVALUATION may engage to assist us in providing our Services to you. Such third party entities will be obligated to use your personally identifiable information solely to provide the Services to us.
Your Financial Information
Any payments made to PICTUREVALUATION via the Internet are conducted on third party sites, using well-established secure Internet transmission protocols such as encryption. Any questions you may have regarding the submission of your credit or debit card information should be addressed to the payment processing gateway site, and not to PICTUREVALUATION. It should be clear which processing gateway you are being directed to for submission of your payment to us, but if you have any questions about this, please contact us as outlined below.
We may employ procedural and technological security measures that are reasonably designed to help protect your personally identifiable information from loss, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. PICTUREVALUATION may use encryption, password protection, and other security measures to help prevent unauthorised access to your personally identifiable information.
We will normally provide you with your valuation by email using the personally identifiable email address you supply. We may also send you notice by email of PICTUREVALUATION news or upcoming offers and events.
You may opt out of receiving these notices at any time using the opt out information included in these email notices, or by sending your opt out request to us by contacting us as outlined below, or, in the case of users who have registered an account with us online, by logging into your account on our website and changing your newsletter preferences. Your email address will then be removed from our list.
We may disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation, or in co-operation with any governmental investigation. We will not sell your personally identifiable information to any company or organisation except we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganisation in which PICTUREVALUATION participates, or to a purchaser of all, or substantially all, of PICTUREVALUATION's assets to which this Site relates.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting Personally Identifiable Information
If you wish to review, correct or request deletion of any personally identifiable information you have provided to us, you may submit a request to us as outlined below. Users who have registered an account with us online may modify personally identifiable information we hold about them by logging into their account on our website.
The Site may track the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, browser type, and IP addresses, and we may analyse this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, but such information will be maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and will not contain personally identifiable information. We may use such aggregate information to analyse trends, administer the Site, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Client Comments and Testimonials
We occasionally share client comments we receive via our website. We do not publish any names or specific address information that may identify you.
This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help customise your experience. A cookie is a small text file which is stored by the browser on your computer or mobile device. Websites are able to read and write these files.
Cookies perform a number of functions, including assisting web applications to respond to you as an individual, and analysing web traffic. Cookies are a kind of "memory" for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and their preferences, and respond appropriately.
Each web domain can only access cookies set by that specific web domain. However, most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains, so when you visit this site, your browser may receive cookies from several sources - from this website, and from third-party websites.
We also use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to better meet customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and no personally identifiable data is collected.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, and enable us to monitor which pages visitors find useful and which they do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
By using our Website, you agree that we can place cookies on your device. Information about managing cookies may be found below.
