ThePixelGypsy.com collects some information to help improve your overall experience while visiting our website. Below is an explanation of what type of information we collect and how we use that information.
What is a cookie?
Cookies are small files that websites put on your computer hard disk drive when you first visit. Think of a cookie as an identification card that’s uniquely yours. Its job is to notify the site when you’ve returned. Cookies can help you be more efficient. Have you ever put something in a virtual shopping cart in an online store and then returned a few days later to find that the item is still there? That’s an example of cookies at work. Cookies let you store preferences and user names, register products and services, and personalize pages. But if you never register or leave personal information at a site, then the server only knows that someone with your cookie has returned to the website. It doesn’t know anything else.
You can disable cookies in your browser options if you so desire. The handy features mentioned above won’t function the same as they would if you have cookies enabled, though.
Account creation or logging in is a requirement to purchase products at ThePixelGypsy.com. Accounts make it possible for us to provide an order history and downloads page for you.
When you create an account you will be asked to create a username and password. Because passwords are stored in an encrypted format, ThePixelGypsy.com administration does not have access to your password. If you forget your password the system generates a temporary password (that you will reset to something private) and sends it to the email you provided during registration.
ThePixelGypsy.com does collect email addresses for its registered users, but does not send promotional-type emails to anyone who doesn’t sign up for them. Promotional emails are optional and are only sent when you give us permission. Mail items such as newsletters and promotional alerts are sent via a separate email list (verified by double-opt-in procedures) when you fill out a form or check a box that says it’s ok for us to send them to you. If you’ve made a purchase from ThePixelGypsy.com, we may need to contact you occasionally concerning your purchase. This sort of contact doesn’t happen often and only happens when it’s important and directly related to your purchase. We hate spam just as much as you do, so we just don’t do it.
The only other information that is required upon account creation is your first and last name, and this is just so we can give you a more friendly, personal customer service experience.
When creating an account there are fields for you to tell us your mailing address and telephone number, but this information is optional and providing it is completely up to your discretion.
Information supplied when you create an account is never shared, sold or given in any way to any other parties.
ThePixelGypsy.com uses PayPal as its payment gateway. No payment information, bank account name/number, credit card information or any other financial data is collected by ThePixelGypsy.com website or stored in its databases. ThePixelGypsy.com has no access to your payment information. Our website simply receives confirmation from PayPal’s website that the transaction has been completed so that our site can release the download.
