Privacy Policy

(this Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with the Terms of Use and Shipping & Returns Policy)

RiKmedia takes the privacy of those that visit our web site seriously. We have established this Privacy Policy to communicate what information we collect and how that information is used and safeguarded.

By accessing this website, you acknowledge the terms and conditions expressed herein. We reserve the right to change this policy at our sole discretion and without notice (because when something needs changing, it usually needs changing right away!).

What information is collected, and why?

When a user visits our website, we collect information about the visit that does not identify the user personally. We track information such as the domain from which the user is visiting and the user's browser type. We also collect specific information regarding the user's session on our website. This includes items such as the date and time of the visit and the pages viewed.

Sometimes we ask a user to voluntarily provide personally identifiable information (PII). This information generally includes, but is not limited to, name, e-mail address, postal address, and telephone number. We request this information when the user requests one of the following:

  • To create an account with us
  • To receive specific information from us such as link to an online gallery
  • To sign up for a mailing list
  • To correspond with us
  • Or any other such activity that we deem necessary

RiKmedia does not collect any personally identifiable financial or health-related information. We do not intentionally collect information from children under the age of 16, unless they wish to be registered as a model, in which case an identified adult guardian needs to approve and register their information.

How is the information used?

Non-personally identifiable information (non-PII) is collected to allow us to analyze how our website is used and to improve the content and service the website provides.

Personally identifiable information is collected for analysis to improve the content of the website and the services we provide the user.

'Be a Model' information is collected for the sole purpose of allowing RiKmedia to judge whether a particular individual may be suitable as a model for any particular job.

RiKmedia owns the collected information and will not sell, trade, or rent the information to others. We may use the information to continue contact with the user. This may include contact such as follow-up calls, email correspondence, or mail correspondence to follow-up on the contact or to provide marketing information about promotions, new services, or important website changes. RiKmedia may share this information with its business partners for the specific purpose of a promotion or service offering.

Are "Cookies" used on the website?

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are placed on a web user's hard drive. We may use cookies to provide you with better service. Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can make the Web more useful by storing information about your preferences for a particular site. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and many major Web sites use them to provide useful features for their customers. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user's computer. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies. However, you may not be able to take full advantage of the functionality of the RiKmedia or other sites if you do so.

How is personally identifiable information safeguarded?

RiKmedia utilizes industry standard methods and mechanisms such as firewalls and passwords to protect electronic information. All financial information in the online store, and all personal information in the user account area is protected using Secure Socket Layers (SSL). Finally, access to PII is limited to a very small number of personnel and on a need-to-know basis.
