What type of information do we collect?
We use Google Analytics tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from pages.
And because we have member account pages, a contact page, and links to subscribe to read our news or get updates, we also collect names, email, and communications visitors send to us.
We do not receive your bank or credit card details. If you make a donation online or make a purchase, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third party payment processors who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions.
How do we collect information?
When we conduct a financial transaction on this website in order to sell products, we collect your name, address, email address, and phone number. Your personal information will be used for the specific reasons stated only. When you register for one of our events, we collect your name, email address, and your social media IDs that you share with us.
When you interact with us on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, we may obtain information about you (for example, when you publicly tag us in an event photo). The information we receive will depend on the privacy preferences you have set on those types of platforms.
Why do we collect such personal information?
We collect such Non-personal and Personal Information for the following purposes:

How do we store, use, share and disclose our site visitors' personal information?
Our business is hosted on the Wix platform. Wix provides our business with an online platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data may be stored through Wix’s data storage, databases, and general Wix applications. Wix stores your data on secure servers behind a firewall.
All direct payment gateways offered by Wix and used by Twitter Art Exhibit adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by my store and its service providers.
How do we communicate with our site visitors?
You won't hear from us unless you ask to be contacted by us via subscribing, to send updates about our events, because you purchased a product from us, or because you contacted us directly via our contact page. We may contact you to notify you regarding updates to an event you registered for, your account, resolving an issue, or collecting fees or monies owed. Or as otherwise necessary to enforce our User Agreement, applicable national laws, and any agreement we may have with you. We may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, and postal mail for these purposes.
How long do we keep your information?
We keep your information for no longer than is necessary; operational and legal considerations determine the length of time. We are legally required to hold some data types to fulfill our statutory and regulatory obligations (e.g., health/safety, and tax/accounting purposes).
We review our retention periods regularly.

What are the types of Cookies we use?
Below is a list of the essential cookies you must enable for the proper functioning of our website (*non-essential cookies are marked with an asterisk and highlighted blue):
Data protection law requires us to rely on one or more lawful grounds to process your personal information. We consider the following settings to be relevant:
You have provided specific consent to us using your personal information in a certain way, such as sending you email, text, and direct messages via social media.
We are entering into a contract with you or performing our obligations under it, as when you buy TAE products and services.
It is necessary to protect life or health (for example, in the case of a medical emergency suffered by an individual at one of our TAE events) or a safeguarding issue requiring us to share your information with the emergency services.
Where it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others’ legitimate interests (as long as what the information is used for is fair and does not duly impact your rights).
We consider our legitimate interests to be running TAE as a fundraising organisation in pursuit of our aims and ideals. For example to:
send email and social media communications which we think will be of interest to you;
conduct research to better understand our artists and to improve the relevance of our events
understand how people choose/use our services and products;
determine the effectiveness of our services, promotional campaigns, and advertising;
monitor who we deal with to protect TAE against fraud, money laundering, and other risks
enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our services /communications for the benefit of our customers; and
better understand how people interact with our website.
When we legitimately process your personal information in this way, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example, where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This policy applies only to our website‚, so we encourage you to read the privacy statements on the other websites you visit. We cannot be responsible for other websites' privacy policies and practices even if you access those using links from our website.
16 and under
We are concerned about protecting the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's or a school taking part in a TAE event – a teacher's, permission beforehand whenever you provide us with personal information.
Transferring your information outside of Europe
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). This may happen if any of our servers are located in a country outside of the EEA or a TAE event is held in another country. You should be aware that these countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you're agreeing to this transfer, storing, or processing. Suppose we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way. In that case, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this policy.
We undertake regular reviews of who has access to information that we hold to ensure that your info is only accessible by appropriately trained volunteers and contractors.
