Why we are allowed to process your personal information:

We are required to comply with data protection legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR requires us to have one or more lawful grounds to process your personal information. We consider the following to be relevant to our use of personal information as set out in this policy:

·         Where there is a legitimate interest in us doing so and the use is reasonably necessary to pursue that interest. Our legitimate interests are set out above under Who we are – namely, to manage the Company as a commercial entity, generating funds for the New Ashgate Gallery by for example running the shop and online shopping portal.

·         Some processing may be necessary so that we can fulfil a contractual relationship we have with you (for example if you purchase something from our online shop)

·         because we are required by law or other statutory requirement to process information (for example to share it with our regulators)

·         In other instances we will rely on your consent to process your personal information, for example to send you certain marketing communications via email. Details on how to manage your preferences in relation to marketing communications are described in the section Communicating with you below.

What we share with third parties:

We will only share your personal information with our employees and service providers where it is necessary in order to fulfil a valid, stated purpose, or contract or to carry work out on our behalf and improve your experience. Examples of such service providers/information processors include our:

We may disclose your information to different areas of the New Ashgate Gallery, for internal purposes and so they can contact you where this is appropriate and legitimate, or where you have given your consent to hear from them. We may also use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individuals are identified) internally for marketing and strategic development purposes – such as anonymised information about visitor trends.

Anonymised customer and visitor statistics may be published in our Annual Report and Accounts and Annual Review, and we may work additionally with third parties to conduct this type of research.

We will not sell your personal information to any third parties or external organisations.

In the event we transfer or receive any business or assets (such as a reorganisation) we may disclose your personal information to the other parties involved in the transfer.

We might need to share your personal information more widely if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions  of supply and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of the New Ashgate Gallery, our customers, or others.
