You may use the Art Wolfe Website without registering or submitting any personally identifiable information. Registration for users who request information enables you to maintain your contact information and preferences, sign up for exclusive online features, enroll in events, purchase products and services more quickly, and receive notifications about events that interest you. You will be asked to provide personally identifiable information that may include a user name and password, your name, and an email address. We store this information on a secure server that uses a Let’s Encrypt Authority Secure Socket Layer Certification for all websites.
HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
WHAT RIGHTS YOU HAVE OVER YOUR DATA
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA
Our secure server software uses industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology across our family of websites.
We also use third party payment providers all of which provide us with our PCI Compliance in web, phone and on location points of sale.
Our hosting provider is WP Engine and their security practices are listed here.
