Information Sharing and Disclosure

If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Comuniart may be required to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as legal action or when your actions violate the Comuniart Terms of Use.  Comuniart employs other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and needs to share your information with them to provide products and services to you. Examples include but are not limited to fulfilling orders, handling billing disputes and collections, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance and providing customer service.

Comuniart will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with nonaffiliated parties except as specified in this Privacy Policy to provide products or services you have requested or when Comuniart has your permission. It may be necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Comuniart's Terms of Use, as specified in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise required by law. In some cases, Comuniart may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Comuniart will transfer information about you if Comuniart is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Comuniart will notify you by email or by putting a prominent notice on the Comuniart web site before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

As part of the buying and selling process, you may obtain another Comuniart user's email address, shipping address and/or other information. Pursuant to Comuniart 's Terms of Use, you have a limited license to use this information. This information should only be used for Comuniart -related communications or for Comuniart -facilitated transactions. Comuniart has not granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages. Without limiting the foregoing, without express consent from the user, you are not licensed to add any Comuniart user to your email or physical mail list.

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and Comuniart's ability to keep the community free from bad actors, Comuniart will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a court order, legal process, or substantially similar legal procedure, except when Comuniart believes in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to protect Comuniart 's rights, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or to report suspected illegal activity.

Third Parties

The security of your personal information is important to us. Your Comuniart account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to work to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by signing off once you have finished using a shared computer.

Comuniart follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once Comuniart receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Comuniart strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, Comuniart cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on Comuniart's Web site, you can email Comuniart at
