Whenever you interact with us, we receive and store certain types of information. For example, we record the web browser, computer operating system, and IP address you use to connect to our site. This information is used only to make improvements to our website.

We may set and access cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small data file written to your hard drive.

Like many websites, we may also use pixel tags, also known as beacons, spotlight tags, or web bugs, to improve our understanding of site traffic, visitor behavior, and response to promotional campaigns, as a supplement to our server logs and other methods of traffic and response measurement. We may also implement pixel tags provided by other companies for the same purpose.

How we use it

Antiques uses your information to better understand your needs and to provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back to you, to update you on services, products and benefits, and to personalize our website for you.

From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest to you.

Who we share it with

We may make email and postal lists of our customers available on a rental, i.e., temporary, defined, basis, to carefully screened providers of quality goods and services. Many customers appreciate the offerings they receive. Any mailing sent to our lists is carefully reviewed before it is sent, and when we rent our mailing lists, we monitor them to ensure they are used only for the approved purpose.

Choice

Antiques will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without letting you know and offering you a choice.

Access & Accuracy
