How we protect your Personal Data:
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely. We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to protect personal data from loss, misuse, or unauthorised alteration or destruction.
If you have signed up to our newsletter you name and email is stored with Mailchimp. If you have enquired or purchased an artwork your name, email and address is stored on our private database Artlogic.
We will notify you promptly in the event of any breach of your personal data which might expose you to serious risk.
We are required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations (for example financial records regarding purchases). We will hold your personal data on our systems for as long as it is in the gallery's legitimate interest to do so.
We will review your personal data and our retention periods to establish whether we are still entitled to process it. If we decide that we are not entitled to do so, we will stop processing your personal data except that we will retain your personal data in an archived form to be able to comply with future legal obligations e.g. compliance with tax requirements and exemptions, and the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. We securely destroy all financial information once we have used it and no longer need it.
