My commitment to your privacy
This policy explains the ways in which my websites collect personal information about you when you contact me and how I may use that information.
Rest assured that I will never sell or swap your personal data and will only share it with organisations with whom I work where it is necessary (for example with a printer if your name or details needs to be added onto a print you have ordered from me). I will only share your data in this way if your privacy and security can be guaranteed.
If you want to obtain a copy of the personal information I hold on you or ask me to update or correct any information please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal and Sensitive Information I collect
The information I collect depends on why you have approached me. If you have ordered a bespoke commission or print I will need to collect:
- Your full contact details to enable me to fulfil your order.
- Information on what you wish to see represented on the artwork. Some of this could be sensitive personal information.
You will need to tell me how you would like to be contacted in the future and may request that I do not contact you at all once you have received your artwork.
If you have made a payment via credit or debit card, this is handled by Stripe or PayPal, and you can read their own privacy policies here and here. I do not hold any of this financial information myself.
How do I use your information?
I only use your personal data with your consent or where it is necessary to:
- Enter into or perform a contract or service for you.
- Comply with a legal duty.
- Administer my relationship with you.
I will only use personal information for the purposes for which it was collected.
I may use your personal information to contact you with information about my art services or news. I will specifically check if you are happy to be contacted via post, telephone or email. I will only contact you if you have given your permission for me to do so. If you do not with at any time to be contacted by me, please let me know via email at email@example.com.
