Your privacy is critically important to us. At Martin Roberts Gallery, we have a few fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, Martin Roberts Gallery collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Martin Roberts Gallery’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Martin Roberts Gallery’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Martin Roberts Gallery may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Martin Roberts Gallery also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving reviews.
