(GDPR)The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679
In compliance with GDPR, we are transparent about how your data is being handled, and we obtain your permission before we begin to use it. On request, we are obliged to tell you, what information we hold about you. You may request that the information is deleted within days. We never pass on your details to any third party.
For us, at least, this is rather straightforward, which is why we now tell you immediately what information we store about you:
If you have opened a free or paid business account to post art events at Xamou Art, we hold the information you posted about events, plus your contact details in the form of email address, first name, last name and organisation.
If you are not an organisation, but you subscribe to our newsletter, we know little more about you personally than your email address; and the fact that you enjoy art.
We do however know a little about traffic patterns to our site, where the sum of users remains anonymous. It tells us something very accurate about on-site behaviour and demographics, and that leads us to the topic of cookies.
Most websites have used cookies the last 20+ years. In that period, cookies have proven to be neither dangerous nor able to tell anyone who you are
Xamou Art (Xamou Ltd) is committed to protecting your personal information. We want our services to offer a safe environment for everyone. Hence, this page aims at helping you assess what information our cookies collect from you, and how it is being applied.
Most cookies are used by webmaster’s to see what people actually do on a site to identify problems or to help the overall experience of using the site. In this regard, cookies don’t EVER tell us who you are exactly. But they tell us which pages you visit and use. Via tools such as Google Analytics and adwords, the cookies also let us know:
1) what type of browser a visitor uses
2) screen size, and
3) whether a visitor uses a computer, a tablet or a mobile.
As long as we are part-funded by advertising revenue from e.g. Google, we cannot avoid using cookies. Some of the adverts may be displayed based on your behaviour on the site. That is a practice widely used across the internet and known as behavioural marketing.
What is Behavioural Marketing?
Behavioural Marketing is technology that gives both you and advertisers what makes sense. I.e. advertising that is more relevant to you. Again it relies on cookies, and makes sure that if you do encounter adverts, they are less annoying than adverts that do not match your demographics or behavioural traits.
Please note that at no time will we attempt to identify you as an individual. Most of the time, we simply aggregate information concerning how our site is being used. Then we improve the site according to the key findings, and by so doing, we also improve your experience of our website.
Either way you can set your internet browser to avoid cookies altogether. You do so under your browser settings.
In the meantime here is an exhaustive list of cookies applied to our site:
