LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA UNDER EUROPEAN GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)

If you are located in the European Economic Area, Arts Decoder’s legal basis for collecting and using your Personal Data, as described in this Privacy Policy, depends on the Personal Data we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.

Generally, Arts Decoder processes your Personal Data on the basis of one or more of the following legal grounds:

  • We need to perform a contract with you;
  • You have given us permission to do so;
  • The processing is in our legitimate interests and it’s not overridden by your rights. Such “legitimate interests” include:
    • to study how customers use this website,
    • to develop this website and grow our business,
    • to manage our business, including the provision of administration and IT services, network security, to prevent fraud and in the context of a business reorganization or group restructuring exercise,
    • to improve our marketing and advertising strategy; or
  • To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.
  • We may process your Personal Data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.

YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS UNDER EUROPEAN GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)

If you are located in the European Economic Area, and subject to national or local law exemptions, you have certain data protection rights in certain circumstances. Please contact us at hello@artsdecodertampabay.com if you would like to exercise any of these rights.

  • Right to withdraw consent at any time: If we have collected and processed your personal data with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal data conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • Access: This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that it is accurate and that we are processing it lawfully.
  • Objection: This enables you to object to processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is an impact on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override certain rights and freedoms of yours. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes.
  • Correction: This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate Personal Data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new Personal Data you provide to us.
  • Erasure: This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Portability: This enables you to request the transfer of your Personal Data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Restriction: This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your Personal Data in the following circumstances: (a) if you want us to establish the information’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the Personal Data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your Personal Data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • File A Complaint: You have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority about our collection and processing of your Personal Data. To file a request or act on one of your rights, please contact us at hello@artsdecodertampabay.com. You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

Please note that we may ask you to verify your identity before responding to such requests. This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
