PRIVACY POLICY

To help you understand...

RateMyDrawings strongly believes in its membersí right to privacy.
Information Collection and Use

Your privacy is important to us. We only collect information for internal use to best offer our services.
1) We collect your email address for registration.
2) We use browser cookies to make parts of our website work.
3) Member profiles display any information you enter into them to the public. We save this data for internal uses only.

RateMyDrawings collects three types of information:

  1. RateMyDrawings requires user registration to interact with certain areas of our website. We therefore collect and store the e-mail address you provide in the registration process.
  2. We passively record information about the interaction between a web user's browser and our servers. Those interactions include user IP addresses and their interaction with drawings such as user ratings. In addition session ID cookies may be used to confirm whether a user is logged in. A cookie is a small piece of data stored on your computer through your web browser that is tied to your login information. The session ID cookie expires once your web browser is closed. This non-identifying information is collected from web users to assist in the proper function of our service.
  3. RateMyDrawings allows users to input personal information and preferences in the user profile section of the userís account. Any information published by users is published at the userís own risk. RateMyDrawings disclaims any and all liability against claims arising from information published by the user, and we do not guarantee the privacy of that information. RateMyDrawings does not collect, use, sell, or purchase the personal information provided by the user. Furthermore we may also use or share non-identifying aggregate information to better design our web site and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women registered with RateMyDrawings. However no information will be used that could identify those individuals. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

The term “Mixart New Media”, “Ratemydrawings.com” “we”, or “us” refers to the owners of the website. The term “you” refers to the user or viewer of our website.

Children Under 13

Child safety is important to us. To keep kids safe and to meet governing standards, under 13's need parental consent to complete registration.

Parents, as guided by governing standards, we take various steps to obtain your consent.

Children under the age of 13 are allowed to register with this web site AFTER we have received verified parental or guardian consent. Information Collection and Use for children under 13 is identical to the one stated above. Identifiable information such as e-mail is used for internal purposes only and will not be shared with any third parties. We advise parents to monitor their childrenís use of this website and we request that children under the age of 13 not provide personally identifiable information such as name, address, phone number, age or location on any public area (including your personal profile) of this website.

Parental Consent
Upon age verification on our registration page, the user will be redirected to the Parental/Guardian Verification consent form. Parents/Guardians are required to print and fill out the consent form accurately and submit the form via mail, fax, or scan and email a pdf of the completed form to the address provided on the form. After receipt of the consent form, Ratemydrawings.com will send an email notification to the parent/guardian and the child with instructions on how the child may register his/her email address and begin using the website and its features.

We strongly recommend that people between the ages of 13 and 18 ask parental permission before providing any personal information through this site.
