Types of data we collect
LAP identifies itself as a Data Controller under Data Protection law. You may lodge a complaint with the ICO in the event of LAP’s non-compliance with applicable Data Protection law, or the relevant competent authority in your legal jurisdiction. LAP is a cloud-enabled business, meaning that during the normal course of interacting with LAP, your personal data may be stored outside of the EU. We only use Cloud services (such as Dropbox) that have met the necessary standards such as ISO 27001 and the US-EU Privacy Shield to protect and store your data. We cannot absolutely guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to us via the internet and remind you that you do so at your own risk. All personal details – Personally Identifiable Information (PII)- are held on encrypted devices, protected with password protection which where possible is dual-factor authenticated.
If you want to disable cookies you need to change your website browser settings to reject cookies. How you can do this will depend on the specific browser you use. N.B. Our website may not operate properly if cookies are switched off.
When someone visits www.artscity.co.uk we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect non-personally identifying standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
LAP offers visitors the opportunity to sign up to the LAP mailing list. As part of the registration process for this we collect some limited personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; 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.
LAP offers paid membership. To complete membership transactions we may require additional, personally-identifying information such as bank account number, sort code, debit card numbers etc. Please be assured that LAP will only keep your personal data in line with the minimum statutory period required, normally in the case of financial records this is 6 years. Please note that LAP has a legitimate interest and legal obligation in retaining your personal data for legal and financial record keeping purposes.
Access to your personal information
Under the 2018 GDPR legislations, you are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our data protection officer (Johnny Bean) at firstname.lastname@example.org
