It is DS Art’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This Privacy Policy applies to https://www.dsart.co.uk (hereinafter, “us”, “we”, or “https://www.dsart.co.uk”). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on our Website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

1. Website Visitors

Like most website operators, DS Art collects non-personally-identifying information via Google Analytics and Bing Webmaster Tools, of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

DS Art’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DS Art’s visitors use its website.

You can view Google’s privacy policy here , and Microsoft’s Privacy Statement (for Bing) here.

DS Art also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. DS Art only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

2. Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to DS Art’s websites choose to interact with DS Art in ways that require DS Art to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DS Art gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to receive eNews at https://www.dsart.co.uk to provide their first name, last name and email address. When using our online store, appropriate details for transactional purposes are required.

3. Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, DS Art discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when DS Art believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DS Art, third parties or the public at large.

8. E-commerce

Those who engage in transactions with DS Art – by purchasing DS Art’s services or products, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, DS Art collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with DS Art.

DS Art does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described on this page. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

When purchasing products through the DS Art Store, visitors have the option to create a DS Art account, enabling functions such as viewing orders and storing billing / delivery addresses. In this instance, the details submitted are stored in the backend of the Website, with the account accessed via the visitor’s email address and chosen password. DS Art will not share these details, aside from under circumstances described in section 5.

During the store checkout process, payment is made via Stripe. Payment card details submitted to Stripe are not shared with the DS Art website. Please view the Stripe privacy policy here >

9. Email News Signup

By submitting your consent to receive DS Art “eNews”, either by stating so on the Contact page, during the store checkout phase or using the signup form on each page on the Website, your details are sent to Mailchimp, our eNews system. You can view the Mailchimp privacy policy here >

Upon submitting your consent to receive DS Art “eNews”, your first name, last name and email address will be shared with Mailchimp. Mailchimp will then email you, checking that you consent to signing up to the DS Art mailing list. Ignoring this email will result in your details not being added to the Mailchimp database / mailing list. If you do consent to being added to the mailing list from the opt-in email, your first name, last name and email address will be stored in the Mailchimp database, enabling eNews to be sent to you periodically. You can unsubscribe from Mailchimp at any time, using the unsubscribe link in DS Art emails.

Signing up to receive DS Art eNews will enable us to send you DS related news – we will not use these details to email you about anything not DS Art-related, and will not share these details with other third-parties.

10. Your Legal Rights

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. You have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at [email protected]

11. Data Retention

Unless you request otherwise (as detailed in section 10), we will retain your data for the following durations:
Retain inactive accounts: 2 years

Retain pending orders: 7 days

Retain failed orders: 7 days

Retain cancelled orders: 7 days
