Please note the following: 
• All the information set out in this Policy may not apply to you. Below is an overview of the possible circumstances in which we could interact together. Our interactions with you will determine which of the following applies to you and your personal information. 
• When you share personal information with us or when we collect personal information about you, we will use it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Please read this Policy carefully. If you have questions or concerns about your personal information, please contact us directly at megan@artopiatogo.com.  


WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHEN AND WHY WE USE IT 

Artopiatogo provides online and in in-person services that require basic personal information for planning. This privacy policy applies to all paying and nonpaying customers who engage directly in our services in any capacity.  

The information we collect from you allows you to register for classes, login to our Webex meetings, use our Services (collectively, “Events”). 

Individuals (and agents of individuals) may provide us information directly or indirectly by registering for an Event or by otherwise using our Services (these individuals are referred to as “Consumers”). For example, you may enter your information in order to register for an Event, or someone who has organized a group even may enter your information on your behalf to register your entire group. 

We will only collect, use, and share your personal information where we are satisfied that we have an appropriate legal basis to do this. The chart below summarizes when we collect personal information, the sources from which that information was collected, the types and categories of personal information we collect, how we use the personal information, and the legal basis for our use of such personal information.
 

we may also use your information for the following purposes which we consider to be everyday business purposes: 

• For identity and credential management, including identity verification and authentication, system and technology administration 
• To protect the security and integrity of systems, networks, applications and data, including detecting, analyzing and resolving security threats, and collaborating with law enforcement or other groups about imminent threats 
• For fraud detection and prevention 
• For legal and regulatory compliance, including all uses and disclosures of personal information that are required by law or for reasonably needed for compliance with company policies and procedures, such as: anti-money laundering programs, security and incident response programs, intellectual property protection programs, and corporate ethics and compliance hotlines, 
• For audits, including financial, security, or compliance audits, and analysis and reporting, 
• To enforce our contracts and to protect against injury, theft, legal liability, fraud or abuse, to protect people or property, including physical security programs, 
• To de-identify the data or create aggregated datasets, such as for consolidating reporting, research or analytics, 
• To make back-up copies for business continuity and disaster recovery purposes, and 
• For corporate governance, including mergers, acquisitions and divestitures.


HOW WE PROTECT AND STORE PERSONAL INFORMATION 


We have implemented and maintain appropriate technical and organizational security measures, policies and procedures designed to reduce the risk of accidental destruction, or loss, or unauthorised disclosure or access to such information appropriate to the nature of the information concerned, including: 
• (where appropriate) password protection, encryption, and use of secure communication transmission software (known as "transport layer security" or "TLS") to protect our Sites; 
• placing confidentiality requirements on our employees and service providers; 
• destroying or permanently anonymizing personal information if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected; and 
• following strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal information to prevent unauthorised access to it. Whilst we take appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal information, no transmission over the Internet can ever be guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal information that you transfer over the Internet to us and any such transmission is at your own risk. 

As the security of personal information depends in part on the security of the computer you use to communicate with us and the security you use to protect usernames and passwords, you should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, computer, and web-enabled devices, among other things, by signing off after using a shared computer, inserting a password on your web-enabled device, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, keeping your password private, and periodically changing your password. You should never share your log-in information with others. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity. 

Storing your personal information 

We will store your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, as explained in this Policy. Where your information is no longer needed, we will ensure that it is disposed of in a secure manner. In some circumstances we may store your personal information for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax, accounting requirements.

In specific circumstances we may store your personal information for longer periods of time so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your personal information or dealings.
