Privacy

Artweeks is committed to protecting the personal information of all visitors to this web site. Users of our web site can visit the site without revealing their identity or providing information about themselves.

Artweeks.org does not capture and store any personal information about individuals who access this website, except where you voluntarily choose to give us your personal details to become a member of Artweeks, to register for an Artweeks exhibition, to order goods or to request Artweeks newsletters.

We process personal information collected for the purposes of:

  • Dealing with requests and enquiries concerning Artweeks activities.
  • Informing users about events, products and services offered by Artweeks members. We will not pass on your personal information unless you have given us permission to do so.
  • Carrying out member research, marketing research and promotional activities.
  • Collecting statistics to enable us to monitor trends in Artweeks membership and website usage.

We may occasionally share visitors' personal information with other companies that we have hired to provide services to us. Such companies are contractually bound to use such personal information strictly for the performance of the particular services only. We may also make use of on-line services for e-mail and file-sharing purposes, such as MailChimp, Dropbox and Google which are either bound by GDPR or have committed to a US-equivalent privacy shield.

Users of our web site may review and update any personal information that is provided to us or collected through this web site and stored by us. Recipients of the Artweeks newsletter may unsubscribe at any time by contacting us directly or via MailChimp.

Oxford Visual Arts Festival Limited maintains appropriate safeguards to protect users’ personal information from inappropriate or unauthorised access. Workers, affiliates and business partners who misuse a user's personal information are subject to legal or disciplinary actions.

Endorsement and authentication

Details of members on the artweeks.org are updated annually. Inclusion on the Artweeks website and in printed material is at the request of the Artist. A listing on artweeks.org or in the Festival Guide does not therefore carry any endorsement by Eye Division or Oxfordshire Artweeks.

Information submitted to Artweeks is not authenticated. Oxfordshire Artweeks and Eye Division cannot be held responsible for any acts of impersonation by other users of the site. Eye Division will assume all information submitted is genuine unless there is reason to doubt its authenticity. If you suspect that a false entry has been made using your identity please advise Oxfordshire Artweeks/Eye Division quickly. We will take immediate action where possible.

The Artweeks.org website provides external links to other websites. Eye Division and the Oxfordshire Artweeks can accept no responsibility for the quality of the external sites or the levels of privacy protection they provide. You should read these sites' privacy statements.
