We and third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and social media platforms, agencies, or other partners may use automated means to collect various types of information about you, your computer or other device used to access, or in connection with, our website and our services. A representative, non-exhaustive list of the types of automatically collected information may include: network or Internet protocol address and type of browser you are using (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast, Verizon or AT&T) and domains used by such providers, mobile network, device identifiers (such as an Apple IDFA or an Android Advertising ID), device settings, device attributes, browser settings, the web pages you have visited, the type of handheld or mobile device used to view the web page (e.g., iOS, Android), location information, and the content and advertisements you have accessed, seen, forwarded and/or clicked on.

We will not share your contact information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order, to send a gift certificate, to respond to your inquiry.

We use and allow other companies to use cookies and similar data collection and data analytic technologies on our website. We do this to understand your use of our website, improve your experience, and optimize our advertising and marketing. You may control the use of cookies through your own browser settings to block or delete cookies and controls from third-party analytics services providers. Your choices may impact your experience with our website.

We do not have control over the practices and policies of third-party websites, hosting service or other internet-based services, including our third-party online payment processor. We advise you to separately review all third-party practices and policies.

We may disclose information: 

To service providers or partners that we have engaged to perform business-related functions on our behalf.

In response to legal inquiries or process, such as a court order or subpoena or a law enforcement or government agency’s request.

With third parties to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding potential illegal activities.

We may transfer some or all of your information in the event we undergo a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or part of our assets. 


We use cookies and other technologies to provide our services to you and to advertise to you. These technologies may also be used to analyze how our users interact with advertising on our web services and elsewhere, and more generally, to learn more about our users and what services or offers you might prefer to receive. We describe some but not all of these technologies we may use below. 

  1. Cookies. To enhance your online experience, we use “cookies”, “web beacons” or other tracking technologies. Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. We use cookies or other tracking technologies to understand service and Internet usage and to improve or customize the products, content, offerings, services or advertisements. For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our website, save your password in password-protected areas, and enable you to use shopping carts on our services. We also may use cookies or other tracking technologies to help us offer you products, content, offerings or services that may be of interest to you and to deliver relevant advertising. We or a third-party platform with whom we work may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser to enable you to receive customized content, offers, services or advertisements on our website or other sites. These cookies contain no information intended to identify you personally. The cookies may be associated with de-identified demographic or other data linked to or derived from data you voluntarily have submitted to us (e.g., your email address) that we may share with a service provider solely in hashed, non-human readable form.

We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies also may use cookies or other tracking technologies to manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed or delivered. This also helps us provide more relevant advertising. 

  1. Syncing Cookies and Identifiers. We may work with our partners (for instance, third party ad platforms) to synchronize unique, anonymous identifiers (such as those associated with cookies) in order to match our partners’ uniquely coded user identifiers to our own. We may do this, for instance, to enhance data points about a particular unique browser or device, and thus enable us or others to send ads that are more relevant, match users to their likely product interests, or better synchronize, cap, or optimize advertising. 
  2. Locally Stored Objects. We may employ locally stored objects (“LSOs”) and other client side storage tracking technologies in certain situations where they help to provide a better user experience, such as to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies, or in order to target or help our partners target ads, analyze ad performance, or perform user, website or market analytics. For LSOs utilized by Adobe Flash you can access Flash management tools from Adobe’s website. In addition, some, but not all browsers, provide the ability to remove LSOs, sometimes within cookie and privacy settings. 
  3. Disabling Cookies

Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You may be able to set your browser to warn you before accepting certain cookies or to refuse certain cookies. However, if you disable the use of cookies in your web browser, some features of our website or services may be impacted. 

  1. Web Beacons. We and third-party partners may also use “web beacons” or clear GIFs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a service or in an email, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a service or email. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that service. Web beacons may also be used to provide information on the effectiveness of our email campaigns (e.g., open rates, clicks, forwards, etc.).


Our website and services is governed by and operated in accordance with US law. If you are located outside of the US, you use our service at your own risk. By using our website and our services, you acknowledge that the data protection and laws of countries, such as the US, may provide a less comprehensive or protective standard of protection than those in your country, and you consent to your Information being collected, processed, and transferred as set forth in this Privacy Policy and US law.


We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures designed to help prevent unauthorized access, to maintain data security, and to use correctly the information we collect. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we do not guarantee that such unauthorized disclosures will not happen.


Photographs are protected by copyright laws from the moment of creation. Candice C. Cusic Photography retains exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, and publish our photographic images and any derivative works.


From time to-time our website requests information via surveys, questionnaires, or contests. Participation is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address) and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).


You can review, remove or correct your personal information. Under US laws, personal information is information which can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity, such as name, social security number, biometric records, etc. alone, or when combined with other personal or identifying information which is linked or linkable to a specific individual, such as date of birth or mother’s maiden name. Generally, personal information does not include information that is publicly available. As stated in this Privacy Policy, you provide and we collect contact information and payment information necessary to perform our services or to fulfill your orders.

You can object to the processing of your contact and payment information, or ask us to restrict processing of your contact or payment information. You may exercise these rights at any time by writing us.
