From time to time, we add or change functions, features or products to this website or add or change services. This, and our commitment to protecting the privacy of your personal information, may result in periodic changes to this Privacy Policy.

Your acceptance of these Privacy Statement terms

By using any of the sites within our web site network ("Web Sites") or our Services, you unconditionally agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy.

What data do we collect and how do we use it?

Wasps Artists' Studios collects and processes information about you in order to:

(i) identify you each time you visit a Web Site or wish to have a Service provided;
(ii) process requests or applications submitted by you;
(iii) improve our Services and Web Sites
(iv) carry out research on the demographics, interests and behaviour of all of our customers; and
(v) send you information we think you may find useful, including information about new Wasps Artists' Studios services, events and other related information.

You may be asked, either when you register with us, or at other times, for information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address and telephone number.

Log files/IP addresses

When you visit our Web Sites, we automatically log your IP address (the unique address which identifies your computer on the internet) which is automatically recognised by our web server. We use IP addresses to help us administer our Web Sites and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use. We do not link IP addresses to personally identifiable information.

Non personal information

We may automatically collect non-personal information about you such as the type of internet browsers you use or the site from which you linked to our Web Sites. You cannot be identified from this information and it is only used to assist us in providing an effective service on our Web Sites. We may from time to time supply the owners or operators of third party sites from which it is possible to link to our Web Sites with information relating to the number of users linking to our Web Sites from their sites. You cannot be identified from this information.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a Web Site transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that. However, you may not be able to take full advantage of a Web Site if you do so. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means they cannot be used to track your movements around the web. Although they do identify a user's computer, cookies do not personally identify customers or passwords.

Wasps Artists' Studios will not share, sell or rent your personal information to third parties. However, we may disclose your personal information to third party suppliers who provide services on our behalf.

Wasps Artists' Studios may disclose aggregate statistics about our site traffic, demographics, our Web Site visitors and customers of our telephone services in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers and other reputable third parties and for other lawful purposes, but these statistics will not include personally identifying information.

Wasps Artists' Studios may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights, property or personal safety of Wasps Artists' Studios and its Web Sites, visitors to the Web Sites and users of our Services.

Our Web Site contains links to the sites of third parties. When you visit these sites, we suggest that you read their privacy policies. Wasps Artists' Studios is not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of such sites.

We will only sell or rent your personal information to a third party either as part of a sale of the assets of a Wasps Artists' Studios company or having ensured that steps have been taken to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

Information about our products and services

It is very important to us that we provide you with the highest level of service. In order to help us do this, from time to time Wasps Artists' Studios may send you details of our products and services which we think may be of interest to you. If at any time you do not wish to receive these details, please e-mail us at info@waspsstudios.org.uk

Security

Wasps Artists' Studios places a great importance on the security of all information associated with our customers. We have security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of customer data under our control. For example, our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorised personnel have access to user information. While we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur, we use our best efforts to prevent this.

Where is the information stored?

Information submitted by you may be transferred by us to our other offices and to reputable third party suppliers, which may be situated outside the European Economic Area. Not all countries outside the EEA have data protection or privacy laws. In addition, if you use our Services while you are outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with those Services.
