Your Personal Data – What is it?
Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”).
Who Are We?
The owner of Melody Art is the data controller (contact details below). This means I decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.
How do we process your personal data?
The owner of Melody Art complies with its obligations under the “GDPR” by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.
We use your personal data for the following purposes:
- To enable us to contact and reply to your enquiries;
- To process your orders with us;
- To maintain our own accounts and records;
- To inform you of news, events and activities run by us.
When someone visits our website (www.melodyart.com) we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior 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.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our email newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer firstname.lastname@example.org. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We may pass your information to third party service providers, such as couriers, or use a third party service, who we have engaged/used for the purpose of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf. Only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service is shared with any third party.
What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?
- Contractual necessity so that we can reply to you
- Explicit consent so we can keep you informed about news, events and activities.
- Processing is necessary for carrying out obligations under employment, social security or social protection law, or a collective agreement;
Sharing your personal data
Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential. We will only share your data with third parties with your consent.
How long do we keep your personal data?
We keep data for as long as you are a customer, or you wish to be on a list of former members for occasional contact.
