Sharon Drew - Privacy policy

Artist Sharon Drew respects the privacy of visitors to our website This policy is concerned with how I collect information, what I do with it and what controls you have over your personal information.

Your Privacy

I take my duty to process your personal information very seriously. This policy explains how I collect, manage, use and protect your personal information.

I may change this document from time to time to reflect the latest view of what I do with your information. Please check back frequently; you will be able to see if changes have been made by the date it was last updated.

Who am I?

Sharon Drew  is a registered company in England and Wales. 

What personal information I collect and how I use it

What I need

Sharon Drew is what’s known as the ‘controller’ of the personal information you provide to us. I will usually collect basic personal information about you like your name, postal address, telephone number, email address and your payment details if you are purchasing artwork from me.

Why I need it

I collect your email in order to send out regular newsletters with invitations to Exhibitions, Open Studios & Art Workshops

How I obtain your details

I will also hold information about your details so that I can respect your preferences for being contacted by me.

I collect your personal information in a number of ways: 

  • When you provide it directly, e.g. when visiting Exhibitions / Open Studios.

  • When I collect it as you use my website.

Anything else?

All the personal information I process is processed within the EEA. However for the purposes of IT hosting and maintenance your information may be situated outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). This will be done in accordance with guidance issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office.

If you would like to change the way you hear from me or no longer wish to receive direct marketing communications then use the contact form on the ‘Contact’ page of the website.

Sharing your information

I do not share your information with any other organisations or individuals unless we when obliged to by law, for purposes of national security, taxation and criminal investigations and in the following instances:

  • If you have agreed that we may do so.

  • When I use other companies to provide services on our behalf, e.g. mailing or delivering orders, sending mail and emails, customer analysis, assessment, when using auditors/advisors or processing credit/debit card payments

  • I will never sell or rent your personal information to other organisations

Retaining your information

I hold your information only as long as necessary for each reason that I use it.

If you decide not to support Sharon Drew any more or request that I have no further contact with you, I will keep some basic information in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future and to ensure that we don’t accidentally duplicate information.

If you make a purchase I keep the purchase information for a period of seven years for accounting purposes. 

What are your rights?

You have a number of rights about how the personal information you provide can be used. These are:

  • Transparency over how I use your personal information (right to be informed).

  • The ability to request a copy of the information I hold about you, which will be provided to you within one month (right of access).

  • Update or amend the information I hold about you if it is wrong (right of rectification).

  • Ask me to stop using your information (right to restrict processing).

  • Ask me to remove your personal information from our records (right to be 'forgotten').

  • Object to the processing of your information for marketing purposes (right to object).

  • Obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purposes (right to data portability).

  • Not be subject to a decision when it is based on automated processing (automated decision making and profiling).
