Encore Glass and Fine Art membership and the use of log files (cookies)
Encore Glass and Fine Art offers free membership to all encoregfa.com visitors. In order to establish membership, visitors are requested to provide both personal information and preferences. This information is stored and protected by your user-established Member ID and Password.

It also allows you to return to any Encore Glass and Fine Art website on subsequent visits without having to re-enter your information. Encore Glass and Fine Art remembers you by placing a log file (cookie) that contains only enough information to identify you upon return visits. A "cookie" is a small line of text that is stored with your web browser for record-keeping purposes and helps Encore Glass and Fine Art provide better service to you. Your browser has options to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent.
No information, other than that found in the Membership cookie, will be accessed by any Encore Glass and Fine Art system. Access to your membership information always requires both your Member ID and Password.
Encore Glass and Fine Art also utilizes visitor log files (cookies) and hosted tracking with our website. Once a user enters our site, a cookie follows them through their click stream path. Examples of information being collected by these cookies and the hosted tracking include the number of times a user came to our site(s), and the paths they took to get there. Encore Glass and Fine Art uses the data collected from website visitor cookies and hosted tracking in aggregate form only and does not collect any personally identifiable information. Use of this information helps us better understand what users are seeking and learning at our website(s) and helps us identify potential navigation issues.
We also gauge effectiveness of our communications by inserting transparent GIF images in our HTML e-mails. These GIF files are not unique identifiers and do not gather any personally identifiable information. They simply let us know the number of e-mails that have been opened.
How Encore Glass and Fine Art will protect your personal information
Encore Glass and Fine Art will always protect the personal information that you share with us. Encore Glass and Fine Art stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment. If, for example, you make a purchase online, we route all transactions through SSL (Secure Socket Layers) and will process your credit card number only to secure your current payment. The SSL transaction does retain your credit card number subsequent to the transaction at hand and will not use the number for marketing purposes.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
If Encore Glass and Fine Art requests general demographic information, this information is limited to reporting purposes only; members remain anonymous. Phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and postal addresses are never shared for demographic reports with outside entities. Encore Glass and Fine Art may occasionally present a special contest or promotion that is sponsored by another company. To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share that information with the sponsor(s), we will provide an up-front statement to that effect.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.
