From Google we will transfer email addresses to MailChimp, a platform we aim to use when creating and sending out newsletters. As of now (May 24, 2018) we have not yet sent out any newsletters.

If you are an art collector buying Finncock art, we need to process and keep record of your personal data in order to comply with our company’s legal business obligations.

We collect this data a) in order to create invoices, b) to deliver the goods and services to you, c) to comply with the law (collecting and transferring data to the hands of our bookkeepers in order to fulfill our duties to tax authorities).

This information will be stored within the invoicing application that holds record of your data (for easy future invoicing), your current and past invoice(s) and your possible future payments (should you be paying in installments). In order to comply with the law, in addition to the previous, we also share our invoices and receipts of your PayPal payment(s) with a bookkeeping company we have partnered with (LemonTree Oy, www.lemontree.fi).

In-house Data Processing

We rarely process any of your information in-house as we give it to third party processors. In most situations we need to hand your information to a third party processor due to not having the tools or ability to perform the tasks ourselves (like when you make a payment using PayPal or when you sign up to a newsletter). On occasion we may process your data internally. We may do it in order to perform a task linked to your interaction with us (for example transferring data linked to your purchase to invoicing program, or a receipt of these invoices and receipts of your payment to our bookkeepers at Lemon Tree Oy, or to simply reply to your inquiry by email). Our purpose in such situations is to administer, maintain and improve our website and to provide you with goods/services. We may also do so in order to make a contract with you (for example if you commission an artwork) or to keep records of our transactions and interactions in order to comply with legal obligations and to protect the rights of our company.

We may process the following data: 

a)    your name, address, email address and information of your payment for our bookkeepers

b)    information about your use of our website (IP address, geographical location, how long you stayed on our website and what you viewed)  

c)    information you provide us in the course of using our services or communicating with us, including the purchase of our goods and services

d)    Information you provide when you subscribe to our newsletter (your email address)

e)    Information you may submit to us via correspondence, such as when you email us with questions

f)     processing and saving contracts between our company and our client (contracts for commissioned artworks); these documents are stored safely in a locked space until they are no longer needed

g)    other information identified in this policy, for the purpose of complying with our legal obligations.

If you reside in the European Union, some of your data will be transferred internationally to servers located in the United States. In addition, some of the materials we collect and transfer in the hands in the company that handles our bookkeeping may host your information either within the EU, EEA or the U.S. Transfers will be protected by Privacy Shield, standard data protection clauses and we make sure the partners who store your information and work with us are compliant to the standards of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We cannot prevent the use or misuse of your data by other parties. However we will notify you swiftly of any known breach of security that might put your data at any serious risk.
