Cookie Placement

The Lauren Marino Studio website, like many other commercial sites, may use a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a website operator determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set. We may use cookies to keep track of information about your current web browsing session which will be discarded as soon as you log out or close your web browser. This information also allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purpose. We may also make use of “persistent or memory based” cookies, which remain on your computer’s hard drive until you delete them. An example of our use of these cookies is to pre-populate forms you complete on our website based on information you have previously provided to us. Although you have the ability to modify your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize our services if you reject cookies.

Lauren Marino Studio may use analytical services to collect and analyze statistical data about visitors to our website. We may also use Google advertising services, and may use other similar services, to arrange for you to see Lauren Marino Studio advertisements when you visit certain third-party websites. These analytic and advertising services do not collect personally identifiable information. You may elect to opt out of the use of non-personally identifiable data by Google by downloading and installing an add-on to your web browser found here.

How We Protect Information Online

We exercise great care to protect your personal information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, and intrusion detection. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via email since we have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us since email does not have the security features that are built into our website.

In addition, we limit Lauren Marino Studio employees and retail partners access to personal information. Only those employees and retail partners with a business reason to know have access to this information. We educate our employees about the importance of maintaining confidentiality of customer information.

We review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.

How can you help protect your information?

If you are using the Lauren Marino Studio website for which you registered and choose a password, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of the Lauren Marino Studio website and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer.

We want to provide site visitors valuable information, services and products. Featured site content within the Lauren Marino Studio site may link our users to third party sites, such as our social media pages. Lauren Marino Studio does not control and is not responsible for practices of any third-party websites.

From time to time, we may change our Privacy Policy statement as we update and improve our website or services, or new features may require modifications.
