Our Policy on collecting information on the Thomas Darcy Art Website
We may share your name and email address with a governmental health authority should that information be requested for COVID-19 contact tracing purposes. If you do not want your name or email address used for these purposes, please email email@example.com.
Online retail purchases
When you order a product from the Thomas Darcy Art online store, we need to know your name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, email address, and credit card information to process your order. Your credit card information will be sent to our third-party payment card processors and service providers to perform fraud detection and payment processing services. If your purchase is rejected by our website because it was detected as a possible fraudulent use of a payment card, and you are in fact the authorized user of the card, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not store credit card numbers. If you choose to have your payment information saved for future purchases, we will retain payment information using tokenization technology for enhanced security. We will retain your other personally identifiable information for our records, in order to facilitate better customer service, and to inform you of our products and promotional offers.
From time to time, Thomas Darcy Art may invite you to participate in surveys posted on the Thomas Darcy Art website or sent to you by email. You may decide whether you wish to complete such surveys, which may ask about your background, occupation, or similar questions. We use this information to help us better understand our audience, which in turn allows us to better meet your needs and interests. Information collected in these surveys is never sold or rented to third parties for marketing purposes, but we may share it with outside vendors to analyze the information we collect (see “Use of third-party service providers” below).
Thomas Darcy Art will occasionally offer visitors the opportunity to participate in online contests or sweepstakes.

In addition, we may deploy various tracking technologies on the website to collect additional information about your website visits. For example, The Thomas Darcy Art website uses technologies such as “cookies” and “pixel tags” to improve the functioning of the site and your experience and to learn how visitors are using our website. Cookies are small data files that are automatically sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies enable us to remember what items are in your shopping cart, and to personalize your experience. Pixel tags are tiny graphical images embedded in emails or webpages. Pixel tags are used to determine what parts of a website a visitor has viewed, or whether an email was successfully opened.

Some Web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (DNT) signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how Web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not change our tracking practices (which are explained in more detail under “Site usage information” above) in response to DNT settings in your Web browser.
Our third-party partners, such as Web analytics companies and third-party ad networks, collect information about your online activities over time and across our website and other online properties. These third parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your Web browser, and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings. We utilize Google Analytics for our Web analytics, and you can opt out of your Thomas Darcy Art website usage data being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Your California privacy rights
California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers asking about the businesses’ practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternately, such businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option to opt out of such information-sharing. As discussed above, if you wish to opt out of our sharing of your information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, please contact us at email@example.com.

My art captures the ordinary, the extraordinary - life it all of its complexity ! As an artist I capture the beauty and ugliness of the moment. There's much to see on my art. here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about it.
When I was in preschool, my favorite time of day was when I was allowed to draw and paint. As I got older, this love never faded and eventually I dedicated myself to develop my own art skills.
I use many different mediums, such as clay, acrylics, and pastels. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I enjoy hiking in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by these hikes in nature. I love recreating plants and wildlife in my work.
