Introduction

 

The Rated Ink website (the Site) is owned and operated by Rated Ink Limited of 53 Edgell Road, Staines-Upon-Thames, Surrey TW18 2EP (Rated Ink, we, us).  By using the Site, you agree to be bound by this privacy & cookie policy (the Privacy & Cookie Policy). This Privacy & Cookie Policy affects your legal rights and obligations so please read it carefully. If you do not agree to be bound by this Privacy & Cookie Policy, do not use the Site. If you have any questions, you can contact us at info@ratedink.co.uk

 

We are the data controller of your personal data.

 

We reserve the right to update this Privacy & Cookie Policy from time to time at our discretion. If we do so, the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this Privacy & Cookie Policy so that you are aware of any changes to it.

 

This policy sets out how we collect, process and hold your personal data if you visit our Site or otherwise provide personal data to us.

 

Collecting Your Data  

 

When you register as an artist on the Site you must provide to us with your name, business name, email address, telephone number, details of your social media accounts and a description of your business. All personal data that you provide to us must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to such personal data.  You must not register under someone else’s name.   If you provide us with inaccurate or false data, and we suspect or identify fraud, we will record this. In addition we may search at fraud prevention agencies for information on you as part of our due diligence to ensure we comply with anti-money laundering legislation.

 

If you register at Rated Ink, please keep your log-in details confidential.  You are responsible for all activity under your Rated Ink account.

 

You do not need to provide us with any personal data to view the Site.     However, we may still collect the information set out in the section below headed Data we automatically collect.

 

When you contact us by email or post, we may keep a record of the correspondence and we may also record any telephone call we have with you.

 

Data we automatically collect

 

When you use the Site, we automatically collect and store information about your device and your activities. This information could include (a) your computer or other device’s unique ID number; (b) your mobile device’s geographic location; (c) your IP address: (d) technical information about your device such as type of device, web browser or operating system; (e) your preferences and settings such as time zone and language; (f) how long you used the Site and which services and features you used. We collect this information using cookies as set out below and we use the information we collect on an anonymous basis to improve the Site and the services we provide, and for analytical and research purposes.

 

We also allow advertisers and advertising networks to collect information about your computer or mobile device, activities, and geographic location to enable them to display targeted ads to you and provide us with anonymous information about our users’ behaviour.  Again, this takes place through the use of cookies as set out below.

 

Lawful processing of your personal data

 

You consent to the lawful processing of your personal data to provide you with access to the Site and to manage your artist’s account.

 

We may also use your personal data for our legitimate interests, including (a) to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities; (b) enforce the terms of use of the Site; (c) for audit purposes; and (d) to contact you about changes to this policy.

 

Who do we share your data with?

We may share your personal data with any service providers, sub-contractors and agents that we may appoint to perform functions on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions, including IT service providers, accountants, auditors and lawyers.

Under certain circumstances we may have to disclose your personal data under applicable laws and/or regulations, for example, as part of anti-money laundering processes or protect a third party’s rights, property, or safety or to enforce terms of use of the Site.

 

We may also share your personal data in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of assets, consolidation or restructuring, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by or into another company.

Marketing Communications

 

You also agree that it is necessary for our legitimate interests to use your personal data to send you marketing communications, which may include newsletters, blog posts, surveys and information about new features or products.

 

You can choose to no longer receive marketing communications by clicking unsubscribe from a marketing email. If you do unsubscribe to marketing communications, it may take up to 5 business days for your new preferences to take effect.

 

Where we hold and process your personal data

 

Some or all of your personal data may be stored or transferred outside of the European Economic Area (the EEA) for any reason, including for example, if our email server is located in a country outside the EEA or if any of our service providers are based outside of the EEA.  We shall only transfer your personal data to organisations that have provided adequate safeguards in respect of your personal data.

 

Cookies

 

A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred (through your browser) from a website to the hard drive of your computer. The cookie identifies your browser but will not let a website know any personal data about you, such as your name and/or address. These files are then used by websites to identify when users revisit that website.

 

The Site uses cookies so that we can recognize you when you return and personalise your settings and preferences. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can change your browser settings either to notify you when you have received a cookie, or to refuse to accept cookies. Please note that this Site may not operate efficiently if you refuse to accept cookies.

 

We also use Google Analytics to monitor how the Site is used. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and generates reports detailing information such as the number of visits to the Site, where visitors generally came from, how long they stayed on the Site, and which pages they visited. Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer’s hard drive.  These do not collect any personal data. If you do not agree to this you can disable persistent cookies in your browser. This will prevent Google Analytics from logging your visits.

 

Security

 

We shall process your personal data in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers.

 

Where we have given, or you have chosen a password, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.

 

However, you acknowledge that no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take these steps to secure your personal data, we do not promise that your personal data will always remain completely secure.

 

Your rights

 

You have the right to obtain from us a copy of the personal data that we hold for you, and to require us to correct errors in the personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You also have the right at any time to require that we delete your personal data. To exercise these rights, or any other rights you may have under applicable laws, please contact us at [email]

 

Please note, we reserve the right to charge an administrative fee if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive.

 

If you have any complaints in relation to this policy or otherwise in relation to our processing of your personal data, you should contact the UK supervisory authority:  the Information Commissioner, see www.ico.org.uk.

Our Site may contain links to other sites of interest. Once you have used these links to leave our Site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other Site. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this policy. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy policy applicable to the site in question.

 

Retention

 

We will retain your personal data for as long as you remain a registered artist on the Site and for 6 months after you cease to be registered for audit purposes and to respond to any queries you have about your registration.

 

If you otherwise contacted us with a question or comment, we shall retain your personal data for 6 months following such contact to respond to any further queries you might have.

 

General

 

If any provision of this Privacy & Cookie Policy is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then such provision shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties and all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

 

This Privacy & Cookie Policy shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales, and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
