We may engage the services of third parties to collect and use anonymous information about your visits to and interactions with our websites through technologies such as cookies to personalize advertisements for goods and services. To learn more, or to opt out of receiving online display advertisements tailored to your interests by our third-party partners, visit the Network Advertising Initiative at www.networkadvertising.org/choices and for mobile devices, visit www.aboutads.info/appchoices.
Some third parties involved in advertising operations may maintain their own proprietary consumer databases that allow them to personally identify or track website visitors. Other third parties have proprietary technologies to determine what additional devices you may use, on which they can display relevant advertisements.
Do Not Track. “Do Not Track” is a privacy preference you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our website is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests. We track website users over time and across third-party websites.
COOKIES, ADVERTISING, AND ONLINE TRACKING
Our websites may include social network or other third-party plug-ins and widgets that may provide information to their associated social networks or third parties about your interactions with our web pages that you visit, even if you do not click on or otherwise interact with the plug-in or widget. Information is transmitted from your browser and may include an identifier assigned by the social network or third party; information about your browser type, operating system, device type, and IP address; and the URL of the web page where the plug-in or widget appears. If you use social network tools or visit social networking sites, you should read their privacy disclosures to learn what information they collect, use, and share.

UPDATES TO THIS POLICY
No system for safeguarding personal or other information is 100% secure, and even though we have taken steps to protect your personal information from being intercepted, accessed, used, or disclosed by unauthorized persons, we cannot entirely eliminate security risks associated with personal information. However, we take a number of steps and implement electronic means to safeguard the security of personal information obtained through the site and mobile app. For example, we use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)—the industry standard in online encryption technology—to ensure that your personal and credit card information remains secure. SSL encryption allows you to shop with confidence, knowing that only you and Camera Mundi, LLC have the ability to access your information.
Whenever you access a secure page on our site, the information you send is immediately encrypted for your protection.
Camera Mundi, LLC will not discriminate against you because you exercise your rights. For example, we will not deny you goods or services or charge you a different price or rate for goods or services if you make an access, deletion, or Do Not Sell request.
