If you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to experience all of the features of our websites. Internet browsers also enable you to delete existing cookies, although this means that your existing settings (including stored user IDs and other preferences) will be lost.

Disclosure of your personal data

Except as described below, personal data that you provide to Arteco via our websites will not be shared outside Arteco without your consent.

Disclosure to service providers: Arteco contracts other companies to provide services on our behalf, such as hosting websites, sending out information, processing transactions, and analysing our websites. We provide these companies with only those elements of your personal data they need to deliver those services. These companies and their employees are prohibited from using those personal data for any other purposes.

Disclore for other reasons: We may disclose personal data if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or with legal process served on us, to protect and defend our rights or property, or in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety or any individual.

For sites to which you login, it is your responsibility to ensure the security of your password and not to reveal this information to others. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always logout before leaving a website so that subsequent users will not be able to access your data.
