Information ÄrtKôz Collects
Account Information: If you create an account on the Site, you are asked to provide a few details about yourself including, but not limited to, your name, contact information, and association, e.g. school, student, or company. ÄrtKôz requests this information to know who you are, how to contact you, and to confirm that you are eligible to sign up for an account. Your user name and association will be visible to all users of the Site. You have the ability to control what other information is visible to the public. ÄrtKôz may request verification of your account information if your status as a school, student, or company identity or authorization to create or maintain your account are called into question. Providing accurate account information helps to ensure the vitality of the ÄrtKôz professional community. Your account information may be used by ÄrtKôz to contact you regarding ÄrtKôz or your account, or to send you notifications about your ÄrtKôz activity. You can modify what kinds of activity notifications are sent to you by logging into your account and selecting options on the “My Account” tab of your profile.
Payment Information: If you purchase a service directly from ÄrtKôz (not from ÄrtKôz users or advertisers) such as membership to our website, you will be asked to provide payment information such as a credit card number. This information will only be used to process the transaction and will not be used for any other purpose. Your payment information will be encrypted as it is transferred and while it is stored on our servers. Payment information will be transmitted to trusted third-party companies that process payment transactions.
Mailing Lists: ÄrtKôz allows you, whether or not you create an account on the Site, to sign up for ÄrtKôz email mailing lists. These lists allow you to easily receive news about ÄrtKôz or various features of the website. You may discontinue receiving mailing list emails at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any mailing list email, or by logging in to the Site and editing your information on the “Subscriptions” page of your “My Account.”

So long as you continue to use ÄrtKôz, you are obligated by our Terms of Service to keep your personal information complete, accurate, and up-to-date.
You can close your ÄrtKôz account at any time. If you close your account, ÄrtKôz will delete all of your account information, and material you have posted may or may not be deleted at the sole discretion of ÄrtKôz.
