What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Submission Forms and Comments

When visitors submit their entries to participate in either an exhibition, competition, artist feature or social media feature option, we collect the data shown in the submission form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Whenever comments are allowed and a user leaves a comment, we will collect information that is submitted as pert of the comment, and an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

All the images that you provide as part of your submission of entry forms into any exhibition, competition, artist feature or social media feature opportunity will be collected and may be displayed on our website and/or social media accounts if accepted. Visitors to the website can view and/or download images on the website.

Contact forms

Submitting a contact form will result in collecting of your name and email address.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These other websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

We will not share your data with anyone ever, will not sell it to anyone and will not give it to anyone for any form of use.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Any data that we collect will be retained indefinitely – this is to allow us to have continuous opportunities for communication with you.

If you request us to be unsubscribed from our mailing list, we will keep your information for 1 year and will purge it after that.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments or submitted any form which resulted in data collection, you can request to view the list of data fields we hold about you. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How do we use your Personal Information?

The personal information we collect is used to operate this website. If you are accepted to an exhibition through our jury process, images you have submitted, as well as your name, artist’s website, social media accounts, artist statement and, in case of a request for Artist’s feature, any other information you have provided on the submission form, may be included on our website for visitors to view and read. We will never post your email address – that will be kept confidential.

We do not sell, rent or lease our customer lists to any third party.

We will only disclose your personal information (with no notice to you) in case if we are required to do so by law or to defend and protect our property here at Tall Sequoia Gallery or to protect the safety of other customers of Tall Sequoia Gallery or the public if such cases ever arise.
