You agree to share information with us based on billing for your account as well as managing your business's marketing needs.
We do not share your information with any third-parties outside of those directly related to your account or projects needs (i.e. website hosts, website domain registrars, ecommerce platforms, email marketing services, social media platforms, etc.)
Any information that you provide to us are securely processed by authorized payment processors (payment gateways).

You understand that Standout Arts may include our backup/testing email address with your website's contact forms for the purposes of testing your email contact form's (website form) functionality only. We are NOT reading your emails or otherwise compromising your privacy, but we often need to include our own email address(es) as recipient addresses in your website's contact form as a way to test the form's functionality during setup and development. On occasion, we may forget to delete our address from the form's recipient list. If you wish to ensure that our address is removed from your form's contact recipient list, please let us know. We recommend that you allow a minimum of 15 days after your website's launch to ensure that your forms are indeed functioning before requesting that we remove our testing email account in the event that we need to re-test or rework the form in any way that would again require our testing purposes. You understand that Standout Arts is not attempting to read or otherwise be involved with the emails that you receive through your website's contact form(s) and that we are merely trying to ensure that we have access to test your form's functioning and performance.
Standout Arts partners with third party providers including assistants, subcontractors, virtual assistants, and consultants. You understand that your information will be safely shared with them only for the purposes of completing your projects and otherwise managing your account.
The nature of our industry requires access to items such as passwords, login credentials, usernames, account numbers and, on occasion (such as assistance with the setup of ecommerce websites), credit card or bank information, as well as other personal information as needed for the setup, management and facilitation of your projects which may include social media, websites and other forms of digital or offline marketing. We take every reasonable precaution to protect all of your information, including any files that you provide to us and any sensitive information that you share with us to use on your behalf. You agree to hold harmless, Standout Arts and all of its associations, employees, vendors, consultants and contractors, in the event that your data is compromised in any way. Standout Arts and its employees and associates cannot be responsible for the overall security of the internet. You acknowledge that communication with our company often happens via email, text message and other such channels and that you assume all associated risks for conducting business, sharing information, communicating and transferring files and data through these means and that Standout Arts is not responsible to any compromises in the security of your data as a result of your communication of this information to us through any means.

It is your responsibility to safeguard this information. While we will strive to do our best to locate and re-send any information in the event that you misplace this data, we cannot guarantee perpetual records with this information will be managed or housed by us.
SCAMS: Unfortunately, digital marketing is a hotspot for scams. Owning or maintaining or associating your name with a website or other forms of digital/online marketing may expose you to solicitations from outside parties, including scam operations. Please do not open emails from suspicious contacts or click on any links of any kind that are sent to you from someone that you do not know or recognize or respond to any phone call or written letter that claims to relate to your website, email, or online products, services or presentation without checking with your internal IT staff or a trusted IT consultant. You understand that solicitations, spam emails, and messages from potential scam operators may be an unfortunate aspect of your online exposure and that Standout Arts is not responsible for these societal conditions that are well beyond our control. We encourage our clients to take proper measures to protect their identity and sensitive information and to use caution whenever contacted by anyone who is unfamiliar, but we cannot advise on all matters related to scams or email spam and recommend that you maintain a close relationship with your IT department or IT consultants on these matters.
