Types of Data We Collect
Website Cookies :
A “cookie” is a piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive and which records how you move your way around a website so that, when you revisit that website, it can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit. Cookies can also be used to analyse traffic and for advertising and marketing purposes. Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system.
Purchasing Data :
When you make an order with us through our website, the data you provide will be securely stored on our computer system until there are no longer legitimate reasons for us to hold it. The data we collect includes name, email address and postal address in order for us to contact you, deliver an order to you, or to collect information regarding the locations of our members so we can fulfil our aims and objectives. For artists and members, we also collect information about you, your art practice, your website and social media accounts and any particular interests you may have. This is to ensure we have the correct information in order for us to fully promote you and your work in line with our aims. If you would like to see the data we hold on you, or would like to be removed from our system, you can request this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to process payments for memberships, artworks or anything purchased through our website, we use PayPal and you can see their privacy notice here.
Mailing lists :
As part of the registration process for our regular e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about what we have been up to, exciting news and opportunities; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing us [email@example.com]
