Gingezel™ Privacy Policy
Updated July 15, 2018

At Gingezel™ we respect your privacy and have tried to minimize any personal information collected. No personally identifiable information is collected anywhere on our site without your express permission. No personally identifiable information is ever given to or sold to third parties.

Express permission means that you have sent us a contact email (see below). Use of these forms is entirely optional and initiates additional service.

General Site Use and Cookies:

The setting of cookies can be managed in your web browser preferences.

We have not personally installed any form of click tracking on our sites, or other cookies beyond those for analytics listed below .

Our sites will have cookies that were installed by:

- Google Analytics. We have installed Google Analytics on the site with the maximum privacy settings. That should mean that no data, anonymous or otherwise, is shared with other Google products or any third parties.

- Statcounter. This is another analytics site. We have no control over what they collect.

Some hosting data is collected outside our site by our web hosting platform (
GoDaddy). We are not aware that they install third party cookies and have checked our site. Using web statistics programs to glean information from web server log files is standard across the internet and is part of the basic web hosting package we have at GoDaddy.

If you contact us using the contact form:
Gingezel™ sites use forms in which you give us contact information: (your name and email address) so you can request information and support, and make product suggestions. Use of these forms is entirely optional. Information is deleted two weeks after the contact is completed.

This information is not used in any way other than to answer your query. The information is not used to create mailing lists, transferred to any third party, or aggregated with other data.

Off Site Pages:
We use off site pages to link to sites that carry our products. These will say 'offsite' or 'buy' or 'visit' in the side bar. By clicking on them you end up on another site with it's own rules.

We also use off site pages to link to our own sites.


Transfer of Data Abroad

If you are visiting a Gingezel™ site from a country other than the country in which we are located (Canada) or the servers we site this website on (US) are located, your communications with us may result in the transfer of information across international boundaries.  By visiting a Gingezel™ site and communicating electronically with us, you consent to such transfers.

Print on Demand Sites:
All Gingezel™ commercial sites link to the print on demand sites that prepare and ship our products, and provide customer service for such fulfillment. These sites are highly interactive sites, use cookies, and each has their own privacy polices and terms of use independent of Gingezel™. Please read them in detail prior to using their services.

The website gingezel.artistwebsites.com is not a Gingezel™ created website but is an extension of Fine Art America. It is hosted by Fine Art America and is subject to their policies, not those of Gingezel™.

Links to Third Party sites:
On Gingezel™ sites we may provide links we think could be of interest to our users. These are usually links to artists, poetry journals, etc. Gingezel™ is not responsible for the privacy policies of these third party sites. Please read their policies.
