Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Artizone pages, or register with the Artizone Web Site or services, a cookie helps Artizone to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the Artizone Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Artizone features that you customized.

We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you.

If you are using a password to secure your personal information, the responsibility for protecting and maintaining the password from unwanted disclosure is yours and yours alone.
