Privacy this one

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 a British figurative artist Stella Tooth 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.

Our Privacy Policy sets out how we use and protect any information that may be collected about you when you visit https://stellatooth.co.uk (the "Site") or subscribe to our mailing list and it explains how you can manage this information.

Types of information we collect:

1/ Cookies

When you visit the SIte, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as Device Information.

This allows us to give you the best browsing experience and help us to understand which parts of the Site you find most interesting, as well as recognising you each time you visit the Site. We do not use cookies for advertising purposes and never pass your data onto any other organisations.

Most web browsers allow you to view and manage cookies in the browser preferences, usually within the ‘Security’ or ‘Privacy’ section of the browser. This allows you to delete some or all of the cookies or block cookies from being created entirely.

Please note that by deleting cookies or disabling future cookies you may not be able to access certain areas or features of the Site.

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 in my open studios/at one of my exhibitions. We do not share your email address with anyone else.

If you no longer wish to receive our emails, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of our emails or by sending an email directly to me at stella.tooth@gmail.com
