Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

For member artists, we collect the following information:

This allows us to contact you if necessary. These details reside in our secure database and will not be used for any other purpose.

Our Use of Cookies

When you access Essential Artwork, we and Google Analytics (used to track how our website is used) may place small data files called "cookies" on your computer.

Members of Essential Artwork are sent a "session cookie" to their computer when they log in to their account. This type of cookie allows us to recognise a member and means that we don’t need to ask for a password on each page. Once the member logs out or closes their browser, this cookie expires and no longer has any effect.

We use long lasting cookies for storing your artwork shortlist in. This means that unless the cookie has been deleted, your shortlist of artwork will be remembered when returning to the site.

You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may interfere with your use of our website.

The Way We Use Information:

We use the information you provide about yourself only on occasions when we use certain features of the site to complete the request you have made only. We do not share this information with outside parties unless that is required by the nature of the request, e.g. tell a friend.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. These are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive our mailing list. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you give your consent explicitly using the signup form.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Artist credit card details are stored only by PayPal and Essential Artwork has no access to these.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
