Our commitment to you
We are committed to protecting your privacy and to complying with the data protection/GDPR laws in the UK. In consequence, we collect the minimum amount of information about you that is commensurate with providing you with a satisfactory service.
What is the purpose and legal basis for us to collect and process your personal data?
The main purpose is to identify our customers to enable us to deliver to you the services that you buy from us and to provide you with any follow-up that is required. We also have to retain records of all our transactions for tax and accounting reasons.
We will not contact you for the purposes of marketing our artwork or services. We will only use the information that you provide to us (eg postal/email address) for the sole purposes that you initiate, for example the purchase of artwork or the participation in collaborative projects such as Do the Little Things. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
What personal data will be collected and processed?
Depending on the type of transaction you enter into, this may include your name, address, telephone number and email address.
Who will receive your personal data?
We will receive your personal data via our website, which will be viewed by Jake and Gillian Lever.
We do not give anyone else access to personal data unless we are required to by law. If we wish to process your personal data for purposes other than those specified in this notice, we will notify you with relevant information and, if necessary, seek your consent.
Please note thatyour payment details are not stored by Lever Arts. Instead, when you complete your purchase, you are directed to the PayPal website or payment portal where these card details are taken and stored securely. Please visit their website for details of how this data is stored.
How long will wekeep your personal data?
We need to keep customer details for at least 6 full tax years under the UK tax laws. After that, until you ask us in writing to delete your personal data, we will keep it to enable us to contact you as mentioned earlier in this notice.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
What are your rights?
You have the right to:
- ask us in writing for details of the personal data that we hold on you
- require us to rectify any errors
- have your personal data deleted if there is no reason for its continued storage and processing
- lodge a complaint about the data controller with the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office).
Further details about your rights under data protection legislation can be found on the ICO’s website at https://ico.org.uk/.
