The type of information we will collect about you for online purchases includes:

*Name

*Email address

*Credit/debit card details (This is only to enable us to process a booking order. We will never hold on to your credit/debit card details.)

We will never collect sensitive information about you without your consent.

The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us at jane@godneyartshouse.co.uk. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct the data promptly. The personal information which we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy.

If we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) – this is very unlikely indeed – we will always obtain your consent first.
