Information We Collect
We collect personally identifying information (name, email address, mailing address, industry, occupation) which you provide to us when you register as a member on the Site (“Member”). The Site also collects which Sponsor information you view on the Site whether or not the Sponsor’s bar code is on your art, what parts of our Site you have visited, what features you use most. This information is associated with you personally if you are a Member or if you have otherwise volunteered personally identifying information about yourself. We also collect such information from other users of our Site who have not provided personally identifying information.

How We Use Cookies

It is not necessary to have cookies turned on to visit our Site, but without them, your access to some areas may be limited and certain features may not be available to you.

Use of Personal Information Collected
The personally identifying information you provide to us will be added to our databases and used for future communications regarding site updates, upcoming events and new services. Unless you provide an “opt-out” notice in accordance with the instructions on the Site and in our communications, we may provide your personally identifiable information as part of our visitor and member lists to Sponsors, and may provide it to relevant third parties if we believe our Members might be interested in receiving an e-mail or other written correspondence from any such third party.

We may also share with our Sponsors your personally identifiable information, as well as non-personally identifiable information that we collect, to help Sponsors better understand our audience and to evaluate the reach and appeal of their communication and information on this Site.

All e-mails sent by the BA are compliant with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. All e-mails contain a valid opt-out mechanism, the valid postal address of the BA, an operative return address, and an accurate and explanatory subject line. At any time, subscribers may opt out of our e-mail list by following the opt out instructions in their current e-mail.
