                        We, the artists at Art Media Works, have no idea why most sites present visitors with a "privacy policy" statement. Our lawyer says we need one. That said, in the vast majority of cases, it should be called the "non-privacy policy" because somewhere cleverly couched in the fine print, it really says that by visiting that particular site you willingly and voluntarily give up most or all of your rights to privacy - or you will be denied, partially or totally, access to that site. Try to imagine if the manager of your local grocery store stopped you at the front door of his business and demanded to know where you were before you came in to do your shopping, what kind of car you were driving, how long you've owned it, where you get it serviced, your home address, how many people live there and where you planned to go after you were done buying groceries! What would you say to him? When a site presents you with a notice that says something like: "Your browser is set to NOT accept cookies. You MUST reset your browser to accept cookies........etc.)", that site is basically demanding the right to know your online habits and where you go. If you never see a notice about "cookies are disabled in your browser" then you and your computer are pretty much an open book when you go online (or you only go to sites that don't care where you are from). Keep in mind the fact that you have the option to just say "NO" to some or all cookies built into most newer browsers - which would go a long way toward trying to regain some of your privacy - but that process would require some knowledge and extra time and patience like that which is required to read an entire EULA (End User License Agreement) and because most people either don't have the time, inclination and/or the attention span required ....... they are leaving themselves open to being taken advantage of.

                     Browse our site knowing that we are just happy that you are here - and that we have absolutely no interest in your business or private existence or its details - as long as you are aware of, and understand, the caveat that for the most part and in most cases, you were tracked to this site by persons and interests unknown, what you do while you are here may very well be tracked by persons and interests unknown to all of us - and that you will most likely be tracked as soon as you leave here by persons and interests who will most likely remain unknown to you forever because they go to great lengths to successfully hide their online identities and activities. You can at least rest assured in the knowledge that it won't be us!

                               We can not, will not and should not be held responsible for any perceived privacy issues or infringements that you may have all ready encountered or may subsequently encounter, past, present or future, in any tangible, real or imagined way, while visiting Art Media Works - simply because we don't want to know about your "privates" and that you have most likely relinquished said rights unwittingly or unknowingly prior to arriving here.

               "Internet Privacy" is as truly a plaintive oxymoron  as "Military Intelligence" and "Honest Government". So, either legislate for change (ROTFLMAO!) or get accustomed to never having any one or all of these and get on with life such as it gets dumped on you.
