Mepaintsme, LLC ("mepaintsme", "we", "our", or "us") operates this website. Cookies help us arrange our website content to match your preferred interests more quickly. They also allow us to deliver the full features of our website including a smoother checkout experience. From time to time we will set cookies on your computer with your consent. The following explains the cookies we use and why.
WHAT ARE COOKIES
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small files of letters and numbers on your device, for example your computer or mobile phone. These are known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally and are not viruses or spyware so cannot damage your computer.
These pieces of information are used to improve your user experience through, for example:
• Enabling a service to recognize your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task (for example, when buying artwork)
• Analyzing anonymized data to help us understand how our audiences interact with our site so that we can improve the overall experience
OUR COOKIES AND WHAT THEY DO

These cookies collect and report on aggregate anonymous information about how visitors use our website, such as the most popular pages and any error pages you see. We use this aggregated information to improve our website. They:
• Give us an overall picture of how people use our website by telling us for example the number of visitors to each page and what people do on a page.
• Allow us to test out ideas to find out what's working and what could be improved. We do this by seeing what people click on and how they move through the site.
