What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

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

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Uses include: marketing the exhibition, public display online and/or in person during show dates AND as part of past exhibition archives. Artists grant the use of their image as stated without further contact or additional compensation. Artists retain full copyright to their images, granting only limited license-for-use and reproduction as outlined.

Contact forms

All information submitted through a show registration or contact form is stored in a WordPress database on our host’s server, currently provided by Omnis. To facilitate easier access to demographic information during web based workflow, April Hoff may use password protected Google Drive Docs, Sheets, Contacts, Forms, etc. to store the data you have provided during upload. Your contact information may be used to notify you of future art shows, or to communicate in reference to a show you have entered.
