PURCHASE DOES NOT CONVEY COPYRIGHT
Your purchase of a print, original artwork, or other products from S. Preston Art + Design is a purchase of an authorized physical copy (or copies) of a photograph, not of copyright in that photograph or of any rights protected by copyright, including but not limited to the right to reproduce or to publish the photograph. All rights in the photographs are reserved by Minimalist Design Studio, Inc, and any use beyond the display and personal enjoyment of the photograph(s) you purchase requires the prior written approval of Minimalist Design Studio, Inc, which may withhold its permission or limit any license granting permission for further use in its sole and unfettered discretion.
This reservation of rights applies equally to all photographs and other materials viewable on this website and/or offered for sale on this website regardless of format, including Limited Editions.
This means: You may not use any images from S. Preston Art + Designs, regardless of how they are viewed or obtained, on your personal or business website, or for any commercial or noncommercial use, without first securing approval from Minimalist Design Studio, Inc. Such prohibited uses include—but are not limited to—use of an image as part of another website’s design, or as an avatar, icon, badge, or otherwise in connection with an account on a social media platform (for example, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram); on T-shirts, mugs, or other objects, either alone or in connection with other text or images; in print or electronic publications (except as noted below, see “Exception”); in visual or audiovisual compositions or productions; or as the basis for any product or service. Altering a photograph with respect to size, color, composition, or other qualities, or the addition of other elements to a photograph, does not exempt you from these restrictions, and is not permitted without prior written approval.
If you wish to reproduce, modify, or otherwise use a photograph or other materials you have viewed on this website, please contact us for permission as noted below. Although we prefer not to engage in litigation or other legal action, we take violations of our intellectual property rights seriously and will take action to protect our rights and to obtain the legal remedies available to us.
Exception: You may use images from this website as part of a review, article, or blog post specifically about S.

Personal information provided by you will be used only for the services requested, such as processing an order or for contacting you in response to an order or other request you have made, except for the following circumstances:
(1) In the course of operating this website it may be necessary or appropriate for us to provide access to your personal information to others such as our service providers, contractors, and select vendors so that we can operate this website and process orders.

SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Our secure sockets layer (SSL) uses the latest industry-standard encryption technology to help protect your personal information (especially your name, address, and credit card number) from getting into the wrong hands, and to minimize the possibility that this information could be intercepted as it travels to our payment processing system. However, no data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make efforts to ensure security on our systems. We use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you.
If we learn of a security breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using this website, or by providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of this website. We may post a notice on this website if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view this website. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us at info(at)sprestondesigns(dot)com.
