WHAT DOES OCULA DO WITH MY PERSONAL DATA?

We use your personal data for the purposes set out above. This might mean that we have to share your personal data with third parties, including:

  1. service providers who act as processors on our behalf in order to provide services such as IT and administrative support, event and venue hire and cloud database providers;
  2. artists, if you are a gallery representative or an Ocula Client or a curator or writer looking for an artist or with an interest in a particular piece of art that we showcase;
  3. galleries, if you are an Ocula Client, writer or curator looking for an artist or with an interest in a particular piece of art that we showcase or are aware of;
  4. Ocula Clients, if you are another Ocula Client, a gallery or an artist looking to purchase or sell a piece of art;
  5. Ocula Clients and Ocula Advertisers, if you are an artist, writer or a gallery or other art entity and we have a customer that is interested in communicating with you about the services you offer;
  6. curators and writers, if you are an artist or a gallery or other art entity and a curator or writer is interested in communicating with you about the services you offer;
  7. our professional advisers, such as our auditors and solicitors;
  8. if we choose to restructure our business we may share your personal data with third parties who we choose to sell, transfer or merge parts of our business and assets with, or who we seek to acquire or merge with. New owners of our business may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this Privacy Policy; or
  9. other legal, regulatory, judicial and law-enforcement agencies who we may need to share personal data with to comply with our legal obligations.

These third parties are required to respect the security of your personal data and treat it in accordance with the law. They can only use your personal data in connection with the services we provide to you. We do not allow them to use your personal data for their own purposes unless it is incidental to the services they are providing to you on our request.

Transfers outside of the EEA

We provide services globally and our Website can be accessed both inside and outside of the EEA, but we have offices in New Zealand, in London and Hong Kong, and representatives based in China. If you are based inside the EEA, please be aware that your personal data is transferred internally within Ocula, outside of the EEA. Specifically, we transfer your personal data to New Zealand where we are based, and we transfer your personal data to Virginia, USA, where our servers are based.

We may share your personal data with third parties that are based across the globe, including outside of the EEA. Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded, for example by ensuring that the country has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission, using binding corporate rules, using specific contracts approved by the European Commission, or by ensuring that they are part of the Privacy Shield (where they are in the USA). As an example, we transfer personal data to New Zealand, a country that has been recognised by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection.

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.


HOW LONG DOES OCULA PROCESS MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?

Under data protection laws, we cannot retain your personal data in a form that identifies you for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it. This may include for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

We usually store personal data for 7 years from the last communication from you that we receive, but there may be occasions where we need to store it for longer or shorter periods. In order to determine how long we store your personal data for, we take into consideration why we need to continue to store your personal data, whether we can achieve the same result without having access to your data, and what the potential risk is if there is a data breach that affects your data.

Occasionally we may anonymise data which means that it is no longer associated with you. We do this for statistical or research purposes so we can improve the services we offer to you. We can use anonymous data indefinitely without further notice to you.


HOW DOES OCULA KEEP MY PERSONAL DATA SECURE?

Once we have received your personal data we will use reasonable and necessary procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access. For example:

  1. we limit who can access your personal data to those individuals and third parties who need to know it and who are subject to a duty of confidentiality;
  2. we require users to have complex passwords which are encrypted, and we use two-factor authorisation where appropriate;
  3. we store data on servers protected by a firewall, and our server software is regularly updated with the latest software updates;
  4. all data in transit is protected by SSL encryption technology;
  5. we use web-filtering to prevent access to hazardous URLs; and
  6. we regularly back-up our data to a separate, secure location, based in Virginia, USA.

If we become aware of a data breach that affects personal data within the United Kingdom, we will notify the Information Commissioner's Office. If we believe the data breach is serious, we may notify you in accordance with our legal requirements.


WHAT RIGHTS DO I HAVE?

People who are in the European Union have the right to:

  1. ask us for details of the personal data we hold and process about them (this is usually called a subject access request);
  2. ask that any inaccurate information we hold about them is corrected;
  3. ask that we delete personal data we hold about them (this applies only in certain circumstances);
  4. ask that we stop using their personal data for certain purposes;
  5. ask that we do not make decisions about them using completely automated means;
  6. withdraw their consent;
  7. ask that we give them the personal data we hold about them, or (where technically feasible) that we give this personal data to a third party chosen by them, in a commonly-used machine-readable format; and
  8. complain to a Member States' supervisory authority for data protection issues. Before exercising this right, we encourage you to contact us first to resolve any complaint you may have, although this is not legally required. In the UK, the supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner's Office at Water Lane, Wycliffe House, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF. Further details can be found at: www.ico.org.uk

To exercise any of the rights above please contact us using the details in this Privacy Policy. If you do so, please provide us with as much information as you can about the request you want to make to help us respond as soon as we can. You might need to provide us with proof of identity (for example a passport or driving licence) before we can fully respond, as we need to be sure we are giving the correct personal data to the correct individual.

Please be aware that the above rights are not available to everyone all the time. Some are subject to exemptions, and so we may not always be able, or required, to comply with your request to exercise these rights. You can read more about the rights that you have on the ICO website.

We usually respond to data protection requests within one month, but it can take longer if your request is particularly complex or if you have made a number of requests. You will not usually have to pay a fee to exercise the rights above, but we reserve the right to charge a fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive; alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request.

We may need to process your personal data in order for us to respond to your request.
