Privacy Policy

The security of your personal information is critically important to us.

Personal information must be handled properly under the Data Protection Act 1998 (‘the DPA’) and the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (‘the GDPR’). This legislation regulates the way that we handle personal data that we collect in the course of carrying out our work and gives certain rights to people whose personal data we may hold.

Personal data means any recorded information held by us and from which an individual can be identified, including names, addresses, telephone numbers and other personal details. This information is gathered in a variety of ways including web sign-up forms, job and studio tenancy application forms, contracts of employment, leases, funding agreements and audience surveys.

Your personal information will only be used by Devon Open Studios / Devon Artist Network. It will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent or unless we are required to do so by law.

Your right to access, change or remove personal information

You can ask to see the personal information we hold about you by notifying us at xxxxx; you can ask us to change or remove this information unless we are required by law to retain it. Once we have received your request we will comply or explain why we cannot comply within 30 days.


You may instruct us at any time not to process your personal information for marketing purposes. We will ask you to agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes and we will always provide you with an opportunity to opt out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.

Website visitors

Like most website operators, Devon Open Studios collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect this non-personally-identifying information to better understand how visitors use our websites.  From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our websites.

Privacy Notice changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Devon Open Studios may change this Privacy Notice from time to time and we encourage visitors to check this page regularly for any changes.  Your continued use of our websites after any change in this Privacy Notice will constitute your acceptance of such change.


We use cookies on this websites to recognise a device when a user visits our websites, to track users as they navigate our websites, to improve website usability, to analyse the use of our sites, to administer our websites, to improve the security of our websites and to personalise our websites for each user.  Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user.  Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies, but if you block cookies you will not be able to use all the features on our websites.
