In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) were introduced to give you greater control over the collection and use of your personal data. Since the UK left the EU, the GDPR is retained in domestic law as the UK GDPR.
I am Stella Tooth a British figurative artist based in London offering the sale of artwork, commissions and invitations to attend projects and events involving my work.
Your privacy has always been important to me and I am committed to ensuring that your data is protected and stored securely.

2/ Google analytics
When someone visits the Site Google analytics collects standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour i.e. country where you’re visiting from and/or which web pages you found most interesting. 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 the Site.
Subscribing to my email list
If you’re on my mailing list it’s because either you’ve filled in a form on the Site to say you’d like to subscribe to receive news from me or you filled in an iPad sign up form at one of my open studios/exhibitions. We do not share your email address with anyone else.
If you no longer wish to receive my emails, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of my emails or by sending an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
When you sign up online, the information goes either directly to our subscription list on Shopify the e-commerce platform used for the Site or Mailchimp. When I want to send you news and offers, I use secure services provided by either Shopify or Mailchimp to send you news on my behalf. Both Mailchimp and Shopify are compliant with the GDPR regulations and their privacy policies can be viewed here (Mailchimp) and below (Shopify).
Buying an artwork
If you choose to buy something from the Site you will be buying directly from me. In the case of works for collection from the Half Moon Putney, where a number of the artworks listed are on its walls, you will need to email email@example.com first to enquire whether the artwork/ artworks seen on the website or on my social media are still available to purchase, and so that it can be removed from sale.
The Order Information collected is stored securely and only used for the purpose of getting you the correct items as quickly and efficiently as possible:
- Postal Address and if different, the billing address.

- Purchase Information
Listed below are the processes of partner services [InXpress/Royal Mail/PayPal] that I use to fulfil your order. They all comply with the new data protection regulations. You should note I do not have any control over these organisations and we would advise you to look at their privacy statements if you’d like further information (see below).
Shopify and Paypal
When you place an order, Shopify processes your order and links up with our payment processor 'Paypal Pro' to securely receive your payment.
InXpress / Royal Mail
When Shopify has accepted your order, and the payment has gone through, I am ready to dispatch your artwork. For UK Mainland addresses I will either use a Royal Mail signed for service, or DHL Express signed for service, depending on the size and value of your order.
For overseas addresses you need to contact me prior to purchase to determine if the order can be shipped and, if so, the best method of shipping your order, such as the InXpress Courier service.
