Privacy and Security Policies


The Art Renewal Center Store does not share any customer information or database with any other businesses, or anyone at all.

The Art Renewal Center Store does not believe in or practice spamming. We send messages only to visitors and customers who have 'opted in' to receive information they choose to accept – and we make it easy to opt out. However, we do use third party technologies such as Yahoo! Hosting and GotMarketing for online tasks such as web store hosting, order processing, and newsletter management. In each of these relationships, the third parties do not have any ability to use the information from The Art Renewal Center Store’s customers.

We email a periodic newsletter announcing new artists, sale prices, specials, new website facilities, and other arts news.


The Art Renewal Center Store is hosted on a Yahoo! server with the best security technology in the industry. Your orders with us are secure, which means that your personal information and credit card number are encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security. Since credit-card and personal information is entered only on the Order Form, the Order Forms and Shopping Basket are secured.

The secured pages will show a secured URL ("https://") and a lock sign on your browser. When you enter your credit card number into the Order Form, it is transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, and then decoded when it gets to the server. Online credit card use is actually no riskier for consumers than traditional low-tech transactions. Online credit card purchases are at least as safe as purchases made in a restaurant or bricks-and-mortar store.

Additionally, your credit card information is never transmitted via e-mail. Our online credit-card processing software does not allow more than one charge to the same credit card number or for the same order number.

If you just don't feel comfortable placing credit card orders via the Internet for any reason, please send an email to request a manual offline transaction for your purchase.

We want our customers and visitors to feel 100% safe and private when using our website. If you have any concerns about privacy and security, please email or phone and we will respond to your query promptly.
