Gather and Use of Personal Information
The Company collects the following personal information from you when you use the Company’s Website or visit the Company’s store. The information we collect through our Website helps us provide you with information specific to your needs and interests.
- Server Statistics. We collect general statistics to track user trends on our Website. These statistics include hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Website, the locations from which users visit our Website, page views, and navigational patterns. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us, other electronic markers and identifies, and other information. The information that is collected in this manner does NOT provide us with any personally identifiable information about our users. It helps us track “where” our users are coming from. This allows us to pinpoint high traffic areas and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our users and to track user preference. As part of that ongoing analysis, the Company also uses devices called “web beacons” to help us identify when emails sent to you have been received and read. In order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Website we may collect information, such as IP addresses, into a log file to be used to identify potential hackers.
- Personal Information Plus Cookies or Other Data. To better serve you, we may combine your personal information with cookies or other third party browsing and use data. We use that combined information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience.

If you are already receiving emails from the Company and no longer wish to receive such communications, simply follow the “unsubscribe” instructions that appear in the emails from the Company.If you change your mind and wish to opt back in to receiving email communications from the Company, you can start receiving promotional communications from us again by entering your email address in the top right-hand corner of our Website and pressing “subscribe.”
Please note that even if you opt out of receiving email communications from us, you will continue to receive certain non-promotional communications from us. When you make an online purchase from us, we will continue to confirm your order status and shipment by email. We may also need to contact you via telephone, email or postal mail with questions or information regarding your order.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties
The Company is the sole owner of the information collected on the Website. The information is used entirely and only by us, except in cases where we use third party agents to perform certain functions for us, such as credit card processing, delivering packages, fulfilling orders, analyzing data, or hosting our Website. In those cases, we provide only the information necessary for the performance of those specific functions. We also ask these third parties to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours. We will not sell, share or rent this information to any other entity for any reason. The Company may also share your personal information as required by law or regulations or in response to a valid subpoena, order, or government request. In the unlikely event of a sale or merger of the Company, your personal information may be acquired by the company merging with or acquiring the Company.
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might be used for any other purpose or go to any other third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Security Procedures Used to Protect Personal Information
When our log in/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software. The Website is a secure website.
In addition to using encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also take measures to protect user information offline. Because our Websites are an extension of the Gabriela Artigas retail store, the store and online inventory and customer databases are linked. However, we do not store credit card numbers from online transactions and, at log in, users are offered the option of not having their billing or shipping address details stored in our customer database. If such an option is exercised, those details will remain only on the customer order form, which is necessary to track customer orders. Access to the customer database is limited to those employees with a need to perform specific functions (such as shipping, order transaction, customer service, and billing) and each access is password protected.
All email communication regarding sales orders will refer to credit card numbers only by their final four digits. If you have any questions about the security of our Website, you can send an email to sales@GabrielaArtigas.com.
While we strive to protect the security and privacy of your confidential information, unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, to the extent permitted by law, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our Website, and you do so at your own risk.
We urge you to keep any password that you establish with us in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to log off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
External Links on Our Website
Our products and services also may be made available to you through third-party platforms (such as other websites) or through other third-party channels. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any non-Company websites, mobile applications or services.

The Company does not direct any of our content specifically to children. Users of our Website are required to be at least 18 years old, and any user under 18 is not an authorized user. Our Website is a general audience Website and is not targeted or intended for use by children. We will never knowingly request Personal Information online from anyone under the age of eighteen (18). If we learn that a user is under eighteen (18) years of age, we will promptly delete any Personal Information we have collected about that user.
