Privacy Policy

Who We Are

Our entire staff at Ann Korologos Gallery takes your data privacy seriously and we encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns. Email us at art@korologosgallery.com or give us a call at (970) 927-9668.

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy“) describes how information and data is collected from you when you use this online website or any related services or functionality (collectively the “Services“) and how Ann Korologos Gallery uses, shares and manages your information and data. By using any of the Services, you consent to the collection, use, processing, and sharing of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Our website address is: https://korologosgallery.com.

Our Privacy Principles

We are committed to recognizing and respecting your privacy rights by keeping you informed and processing and protecting your personal data in compliance with applicable law.

Our Security Measures

We want your information (including personally identifiable information “PII”) to remain secure. We strive to provide transmission of your information from your computer or mobile device to our servers through techniques that are consistent with industry standards and to employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.

Notwithstanding the above, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Our Security Procedures. We take reasonable precautions to protect the security of our users’ information. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use your information. However, neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes or fail to follow policies. Therefore, while we use reasonable efforts to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your PII, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standards used to measure our compliance with that duty.

What Personal Data We Collect & Why We Collect It

Data You Directly & Voluntarily Provide to Us

We may collect and process some or all of the following information you make available to us if you inquire about a work of art or contact us:

  • Name
  • Email Address
  • Other information you provide us when inquiring about an artwork on our website
  • Payment information you provide when purchasing an artwork from this website.
  • Information you provide when you contact us with questions on our Contact page form and inquiry form on individual artwork.

Third-Party Payment Processor

We are concerned about the safety and security of our customers. Accordingly, we have put a number of technological protections in place to ensure that our transaction process is extremely safe and that our customers’ information is secure. Credit card details are not stored. Once the transaction has been completed, the credit card numbers are no longer retained. We utilize the third party payment processor Stripe. Necessary information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and customer’s billing information will be passed to Stripe. Stripe is an industry-leading payment processor, providing payment services and fraud protection to Amazon, Lyft, Shopify, and UNICEF. Its data protection and fraud detection services give collectors the confidence to purchase high-value works online through our site. View more on Stripe’s policies here.

Contact Forms

If you contact us via our Contact page form or an inquiry form on a specific artwork, we retain these submissions (e.g. Name, Email address, Message) for a certain period for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted for marketing purposes.

Data Used: The contact page form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to, Ann Korologos Gallery,the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.

Data Synced: Post and post meta data associated with a user’s contact page form submission. The IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta in Akismet.
