By using our website, our social media pages (such as Facebook), subscribing to our services, donating to us and/or shopping online you agree that we can place the types of cookies set out below on your device and use your data in accordance with this policy.
Emails are not always secure, and they may be intercepted or changed after they have been sent. Conquest Art does not accept liability if this happens. The contents of emails reflect their author’s views and not necessarily those of Conquest Art.
Please do not send Conquest Art any financial data through email.
The information in emails is confidential, so if you have received one by mistake, please delete it without copying, using, or telling anyone about its contents.
b) How do we collect information?
We may collect information about you whenever you interact with us. For example, when you contact Conquest Art regarding our activities, register as a supporter, send or receive information or make a donation to us, you specifically and knowingly provide us with your personal information.
We may also receive information about you from third parties – but only if you have given them permission to share your information.

d) Will we disclose the information we have collected to outside parties?
We do not share your data with any third parties unless specifically required to do so by law.
e) How we protect your personal information?
We take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your information secure, accurate and up to date, and that we only keep it as long as is reasonable and necessary.
Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal information, the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure. We do our best to protect personal information, but we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our website, so any transmission is at the user’s own risk. However, any payment card details (such as credit or debit cards) we receive on our website are passed securely to our payment processing provider according to the Payment Card Industry Security Standards.
If you apply for a job or volunteering opportunity we will also collect information so we can assess your suitability for the role.
g) Your credit card information
If you use your credit card to donate to us, buy something or make a booking online, we pass your credit card details securely to our payment processing partner as part of the payment process. We do this in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Security Standard (PDF download), and don not store the details on our website.
h) Can you gain access to your personal information?
You may request a copy of the personal information relating to you which is kept on file by Conquest Art by contacting the Data Protection Officer.

Cookies and how we use them
a) What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu for a video about cookies visit www.google.co.uk/goodtoknow/data-on-the-web/cookies
c) Types of cookies
There are two broad types of cookies – ‘first party cookies’ and ‘third party cookies’:
First party cookies are cookies that are served directly by the website operator to your computer, and are often used to recognise your computer when it revisits that site and to remember your preferences as you browse the site. Basically, these are our cookies.
Third party cookies are served by a service provider on behalf of the website operator, and can be used by the service provider to recognise your computer when you visit other web sites. Third party cookies are most commonly used for web site analytics or advertising purposes.
In addition, cookies may be either ‘session cookies’ or ‘persistent cookies’. Your computer automatically removes session cookies once you close your browser. Persistent cookies will survive on your computer until an expiry date specified in the cookie itself, is reached. We use both session and persistent cookies.
d) Categories of cookies we use
1. Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential for the user to move around the website and to use its features, e.g. shopping baskets and e-billing.
2. Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how the user makes use of the site, e.g. which pages the user visits most. These cookies do not collect information that identifies the user.
e) What information do we collect?
We may collect some, or all, of this information when you visit our website, depending on how you use it. We monitor how people use our website so we can improve it. We collect this information anonymously.
However, you can use our website anonymously without giving us any information.

f) Website statistics analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
