Dorking Group of Artists Data Protection Statement

The Committee of the Dorking Group of Artists holds personal data in order to be able to provide information about activities undertaken by the Group. 

 

The information we hold is each member’s name, home address and where it has been provided, email address and telephone number.  Occasionally, if someone has volunteered other information we may hold that as well. We also keep similar information on people who buy artworks from us in order to invite them to subsequent exhibitions.

 

The Committee does not share the information it holds with anyone else.  It is the Committee’s responsibility to keep individual sets of data safe and secure. The Committee will provide details of the information it holds on request only to the individual concerned.

 

The Committee also keeps similar information about contacts with other local art groups and organisations which stage our exhibitions and host workshops and other events. Such information is subject to the same safeguards and conditions as that which we apply to our members. Where email addresses in the Society’s records come from publicly available sources, such as Company websites, Local Authorities, Government organisations or similar sources readily available on the internet, the Committee will not seek specific permission to hold the data.

 

Anyone whose data is held can ask to be removed from the Society’s records at any time. Such requests should be made by contacting any member of the Committee of the Dorking Group of Artists or by emailing the Chairman at:
