Cookies and other similar technologies are used to help Mark Reeves Artworks function; they allow us to understand how you use the Services and have a number of purposes that you can read about in this Policy. In this Policy, Mark Reeves Artworks is referred to as the "Site". The Site, Payments and other services will be referred to collectively as the "Services". Cookies and similar technologies will be referred to collectively as “Cookie Technologies”.
1. Types of Cookie Technologies
Cookies are small data files sent from a server to your web browser. They are stored in your browser’s cache and allow a website or a third party to recognise your browser. There are three primary types of cookies:
Cookies store data about your use, but they are helpful because they allow us to help the Site function and customise your experience. You can configure your desktop or mobile browser's settings to reflect your preference to accept or reject cookies, including how to handle third-party cookies (see Managing Your Cookie Technology Preferences below).
In addition to cookies, there are other similar technologies used by this Site and elsewhere on the web or in mobile ecosystems.
Web beacons: These are tiny graphics (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels”) with a unique identifier that are used to understand browsing activity. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are rendered invisibly on web pages when you open a page.
Social widgets: These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers that allow you to interact with those social media services when you view a web page or a mobile app screen. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by the third parties.
UTM codes: These are strings that can appear in a URL (the “Uniform Resource Locator”, which is typically the http or https address entered to go to a web page) when a user moves from one web page or website to another, where the string can represent information about browsing, such as which advertisement, page, or publisher sent the user to the receiving website.
Application SDKs: These are mobile application third-party software development kits that are embedded in apps (and are used in many mobile applications). These app SDKs permit the collection of information about the app itself, activity in the app, and the device the application is running on.
Local Storage Objects: These are sets of data that can be stored on your browser by a site or app. They can be used to maintain preferences, a history of usage, or even the state or settings of a site or an app.
Internet of Things identifiers: Like mobile identifiers, internet-connected devices such as voice activated assistants or smart TVs may send identifiers and other data analogous to web browsers or mobile SDKs.
Mark Reeves Artworks uses Cookie Technologies to recognise your logged-in state on this Site, to understand what purchases members and visitors are interested in, to make our Site function for you, and to help your browsing experience and use of the Site and Services feel more customised. More generally, the Site uses Cookie Technologies for the following:
Security and Authentication (Strictly Necessary)
Some cookie and similar technology functions are necessary and vital to ensuring that the Site works properly for visitors and members, such as maintaining the security, safety, and integrity of the Site, authentication and logging into Mark Reeves Artworks (including remembering permissions and consents you have granted), and ensuring the ability to securely complete transactions.
Account and User Preferences
Some technologies are used to remember your account and preferences over time, such as keeping yourself logged in when returning to Mark Reeves Artworks, maintaining your choices on the Site's features and how you want the Site to appear (including keeping track of your preferred language and country), and customising content based on how you use the Site.
Social networks may also work with Mark Reeves Artworks or with you for analytics or for marketing purposes, as discussed below. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences for these social networks and their tools and widgets via your account with the social network.
Performance and Analytics
Some technologies help provide performance data on how the Services are functioning in order to improve the Site and the Services, including, for example, data on site functionality and speed to help us optimise the Site, how the Services are used to help us improve your experience on the Site, and detecting and gathering reporting on bugs to help make Mark Reeves Artworks work better.
In addition, the Site may employ transient technologies, including cookies or local stored objects, for site performance, experiments, form information, and interactions with the site, and may use temporary, short-term cookies for limited-time site events such as sales and promotions.
The Site employs Google Analytics to help understand how the Site is used by its customers. For some of the advertising features listed below, like retargeting, data from Google Analytics may be combined with the Site's first-party data and third-party cookies (like Google’s advertising cookies) as permitted by Google’s and Mark Reeves Artworks' respective policies. To see how to opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features, see Managing your Cookie Technology Preferences at the bottom of this policy.
3. Consent, Contract, and Legitimate Interests in Processing
Certain Cookie Technologies are employed to make the Site function for its intended purpose, and are provided based on contractual necessity based on your agreement with Mark Reeves Artworks to perform the services you have requested. These include the functions strictly necessary to the service noted above.
4. Managing Your Cookie Technology Preferences
You have the ability to control the use of certain Cookie Technologies. You can opt out of third party marketing cookies and similar technologies via your Privacy Settings. You can also manage your Site marketing preferences in your account settings.
Opt-in and Opt-out for Browsers
When you use Mark Reeves Artworks via a browser, you can change your web browser's settings to reflect your cookie preferences. Each browser is a little different, but usually these settings are under the "options" or "preferences" menu.
Opt-out of Third-Party Networks
If you do not wish to have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based advertisements, you may exercise your preferences as described below. Please note this does not stop you from being served advertisements. You will continue to receive generic advertisements. If you reject or block all cookies in your browser settings, you will not be able to take advantage of the Site's Services as some cookies are necessary for the Site to function properly.
You can learn more about managing your preferences for ads online, particularly for many third-party advertising networks, through resources made available by the Digital Advertising Alliance at https://www.aboutads.info or the Network Advertising Initiative at https://optout.networkadvertising.org or if you are located in the European Union at https://www.youronlinechoices.eu
Google Analytics Opt-out
For Google Analytics Advertising Features, you can opt-out through Google Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (for example, the NAI's consumer opt-out listed above). Google also provides a Google Analytics opt-out plug-in for the web.
Both Google and Facebook provide tools to control use of advertising on their respective platforms. More information can be found in your account settings on the respective platforms, including in Google’s Privacy Centre and in Facebook’s Ad Settings.
Mobile and Third Party Device Opt-out
If you access Mark Reeves Artworks on an iOS or Android device you may also control interest-based advertising by selecting the “Limit Ad Tracking” option in the privacy section of the Settings App on iOS or via advertising preferences on Android-based devices (usually in the Google Settings app). This will not prevent you from seeing advertisements but will limit the use of device advertising identifiers to personalise ads based on your interests.
For third party IoT devices such as voice activated assistants or smart TVs, consult with the manufacturer and/or service provider for the opt out mechanism for their respective devices and services.
