We are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy.
The purpose of this privacy statement is to inform you about the type of information that we gather about you when you visit our Site, how we may use that information and whether we give it to anyone. It also informs you of the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, that information. We reserve the right to change this Statement from time to time, so please check back periodically.
The Statement will explain the following:
Visitors may supply personally identifiable information (such as name, address or telephone numbers) for various purposes on this site. These purposes include requesting further information about joining our Association, or simply asking a question about ARTSM.
ARTSM does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose (registering, asking for advice, making an enquiry), we use the information for that purpose only.
Our primary goal in collecting other information from you (for example by way of cookies see below) is so that we can provide you with a smooth, efficient and customised experience. It allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs and helps us to customise our service and the Site to make your browsing experience easier.
Direct contact made to any members will be through information provided through our membership registration process and not from access to our web Site and follows the requirements of our Data Protection Policy.
Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, we’ll take commercially reasonable measures to obtain e-mail consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our site at least 30 days prior to a change.
We have taken various steps to put in place security measures to protect this Site from loss, misuse and alteration of information. Our security measures meet or exceed all industry standards for the protection of personally identifiable information.
Personally identifiable information is only accessed by Management Committee staff only and on a “need to know” basis. All management staff must comply with our Data Protection policy.
If you have registered to receive e-mail communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name removed from our distribution lists.
You have the following option to do this: you can send an email to [email protected]
If you would like to verify the data we have received from you or to make corrections to it, you may contact us directly at the e-mail and postal addresses provided on our website.
Anonymous information is collected for every visitor viewing this site using google analytics. This includes pages viewed, date and time, and browser type. IP numbers are not stored but are temporarily used to determine domain type and, in some cases, geographic region. We do not make any association between this information and a visitor’s identity.
You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our site.
We use e-mail links located on this site to allow you to contact us directly via e-mail. We use the information provided in your e-mail to respond to your questions or comments. We may also store your comments for future reference. Your personal information is never shared with third parties.
If required by Law agencies we may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the law or comply with legal process served on ARTSM.
We are registered under the relevant EU & UK data protection legislation and have given all appropriate notifications to the Data Protection Commissioner.
