AAW may disclose the personal information of AAW Users if required by law to do so or if AAW Users violate the ARTS AT WORK: TERMS & CONDITIONS policy.


The AAW website does not collect or store any credit card information.

AAW uses Beanstream as its payment gateway provider. The AAW website also uses Mijireh for collecting and transmitting credit card information obtained from the AAW website checkout page to Beanstream, which companies together provide AAW with the online e-commerce platforms that allow AAW to sell artworks to AAW Users.

All purchase transaction/credit card data processed by Beanstream is encrypted at the highest security level (Level 1) through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), the standards of which are managed by the PCI Security Standards Council (a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover). Mijireh is also PCI-DSS compliant.

Beanstream stores the respective purchase transaction/credit card data only as long as is necessary to complete the purchase transaction, after which time the respective purchase transaction/credit card data is deleted.

The purchase transaction/credit card data of AAW Users is stored through Beanstream’s data storage, databases and the general Beanstream application on a secure server behind a firewall.

The AAW website is further protected through Sitelock Domain Security.


In general, the third-party providers used by AAW will only collect, use and disclose the personal information of AAW Users to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to AAW.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information AAW is required to provide to them for the purchase-related transactions of AAW Users.

For these third-party providers, AAW recommends that AAW Users read their respective privacy policies to understand the manner in which the personal information of AAW Users will be handled by these third-party providers.

In particular, certain third-party providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either AAW or AAW Users. Should AAW Users elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then the personal information of AAW Users may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

Should AAW Users click on links on the AAW website, the AAW Users may be directed away from the AAW website. AAW is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites and AAW Users are encouraged to read the respective privacy statements of said other websites.

Once AAW Users leave the AAW website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, AAW Users are no longer governed by this PRIVACY POLICY or the ARTS AT WORK: TERMS & CONDITIONS policy.


To protect the personal information of AAW users, AAW takes reasonable precautions and follows industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

Please refer to “SECTION 4 – MIJIREH and BEANSTREAM” (above) for information regarding security of purchase transaction/credit card data of AAW Users.

AAW has also implemented an additional generally accepted industry standard, Sitelock Domain Security, for the AAW website.
