We are committed to safeguarding your personal information. Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all laws concerning the protection of personal information, including the Data Protection Act 1998.
HopeMeetsArt is part of Notre Dame de France which is a charity registered with the number 117795. Our registered address is 5 Leicester Place, London WC2H 7BX.
When you contact us to make a donation, purchase an item online, or sign up to any of our activities or online content, such as newsletters, or you telephone, email, write to us, or engage with us via social media channels, we may receive and retain personal information about you. This can consist of information such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone or mobile number, bank account details to process donations and whether or not you are a tax payer so that we can claim gift aid.
By submitting your details, you enable us (and where applicable any sub-contractors we may use) to raise funds and to provide you with the goods, services, information, activities or online content you select.
We do not usually collect “sensitive personal data” about you, e.g. health status, unless there is a clear reason for doing so – such as participation in an event where we need this to ensure that we provide appropriate facilities or support to enable you to participate in an event. Clear notices will be provided on applications for such events so that it is clear what information we need and why we need it.
If you are simply browsing our website as an anonymous visitor, we may still collect certain information from you such as your IP address (an IP address is a number that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet).
HopeMeetsArt will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
HopeMeetsArt will only contact you for marketing purposes by email or other electronic means if you have agreed to be contacted for these purposes.
If you wish to contact us either to obtain information about our work or to stop us sending you such information, please email us at info@HopeMeetsArt.net with the details. You may also opt out of marketing emails at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in any marketing email from us.
We will only use your information within HopeMeetsArt for the purposes for which it was obtained, unless you have explicitly agreed that we may share your information with another organisation. Sometimes we contract third parties to process your information on our behalf. We will make sure these third parties comply strictly with the new GDPR and data protection laws.
We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies for tax purposes or law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detention of crime, subject to such bodies providing us with a relevant request in writing.
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content to or anywhere on our website or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any of our services, we may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
When we reasonably believe that you are or may be in breach of any of the laws of England and Wales (or the law of Scotland if you live there) (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), we may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, eg we will keep a record of donations for at least seven years. If you request us not to send you marketing information we will keep a record of your contact details and appropriate information to enable us to comply with your request not to be contacted by us.
Where you contribute material to us, e.g. user generated content or in response to a particular campaign, we will generally only keep your content for as long as is reasonably required for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted unless otherwise stated at the point of generation.
The accuracy of your information is important to us, and you can amend your contact details and any of the other information we hold by emailing us with your details at info@HopeMeetsArt.net
Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to request a free copy of the personal information we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected.
