Who we are
Types of data we collect
MAC identifies itself as a Data Controller under Data Protection law. You may lodge a complaint with the ICO in the event of MAC’s non-compliance with applicable Data Protection law, or the relevant competent authority in your legal jurisdiction. MAC is a cloud-enabled business, meaning that during the normal course of interacting with MAC, 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.morecambeartistcolony.org 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.
MAC offers visitors the opportunity to sign up to the MAC 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.
MAC offers two levels of paid membership Associate and Friend. To complete these transactions we may require additional, personally-identifying information such as bank account number, sort code, debit card numbers etc. Please be assured that MAC 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 MAC has a legitimate interest and legal obligation in retaining your personal data for legal and financial record keeping purposes. We use the third-party services Nat West Bank, Wave Accounting and Stripe to complete financial transactions on our behalf. You can read how each of these services treats your data by viewing their privacy policies here: Nat West Bank | Wave Accounting | Stripe
