Artists Meet Artists Privacy Policy

Artists Meet Artists’ Privacy Policy describes how Artists Meet Artists collects, uses and shares your personal data.

Updated May 16, 2023

What Is Personal Data at Artists Meet Artists?

At Artists Meet Artists, we believe strongly in privacy rights — and that those fundamental rights should not differ dependent upon where you live. That’s why we treat any data that relates to an identified or identifiable individual or that is linked or linkable to them by Artists Meet Artists as “personal data,” no matter where the individual lives. This means that data that directly identifies you — such as your name — is personal data, and also data that does not directly identify you, but that can reasonably be used to identify you — such as the SKU and/or other identifying information for your product(s) purchased from us at — is personal data. Aggregated data is considered non-personal data for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy covers how Artists Meet Artists LLC or an Artists Meet Artists LLC affiliated company (collectively, “Artists Meet Artists”) handles personal data whether you interact with us on our websites, or in person (including by text, email, phone or when visiting us in person). Artists Meet Artists may also link to third parties related to our products or your purchase and delivery thereof or otherwise to provide our products. Artists Meet Artists’ Privacy Policy does not apply to how third parties define personal data or how they use it. We encourage you to read their privacy policies and know your privacy rights before interacting with them.

Your Privacy Rights at Artists Meet Artists

At Artists Meet Artists, we respect your privacy. There may be situations where we cannot grant your request to delete or change information you have provided to us – for example, if you ask us to delete your transaction data and Artists Meet Artists is legally obligated to keep a record of that transaction to comply with law. We may also decline to grant a request if doing so could undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes, such as when you request deletion of an account that is being investigated for security concerns. Other reasons your privacy request may be denied are if it jeopardizes the privacy of others, is frivolous or vexatious, or would be extremely impractical.

Personal Data Artists Meet Artists Collects from You

At Artists Meet Artists, we endeavor to collect only the personal data that we need.

When you create a user ID, purchase a product, register for a promotion, contest or exhibition, contact us (including by social media), participate in an online survey, or otherwise interact with Artists Meet Artists, we may collect a variety of information, including:

  • Account Information. Your user ID and related transaction(s) details, including email address, purchase(s) status and age

Personal Data Artists Meet Artists Receives from Other Sources

Artists Meet Artists may receive personal data about you from other individuals, from businesses or third parties acting at your direction, from our partners who work with us to provide our products and services and assist us in security and fraud prevention, and from other lawful sources.

  • Individuals. Artists Meet Artists may collect data about you from other individuals — for example, if that individual has sent you a product or gift card, invited you to participate in an Artists Meet Artists exhibition or other event, or shared content with you.
  • At Your Direction. You may direct other individuals or third parties to share data with Artists Meet Artists. For example, you may direct a delivery service to share data about your receipt of a product you purchased from Artists Meet Artists.
  • Artists Meet Artists Partners. We may also validate the information you provide — for example, when creating an ARTISTS MEET ARTISTS ID, or making a purchase or reservation for an exhibition or other event, with a third party for security, and for fraud-prevention purposes.

For research and development purposes, we may use datasets such as those that contain images, voices, or other data that could be associated with an identifiable person. When acquiring such datasets, we do so in accordance with applicable law, including law in the jurisdiction in which the dataset is hosted. When using such datasets for research and development, we do not attempt to reidentify individuals who may appear therein.

Artists Meet Artists’ Use of Personal Data

Depending on the circumstance, Artists Meet Artists may rely on your consent or the fact that the processing is necessary to interact or complete a transaction with you, protect your vital interests or those of other persons, or to comply with law. We may also process your personal data where we believe it is in our or others’ legitimate interests, taking into consideration your interests, rights, and expectations.

Because this information is important to your interaction with Artists Meet Artists, you may not opt out of receiving these important notices.
  • Security and Fraud Prevention. To protect individuals, employees, and Artists Meet Artists and for loss prevention and to prevent fraud.
  • Comply with Law. To comply with applicable law — for example, to satisfy tax or reporting obligations, or to comply with a lawful governmental request.

Artists Meet Artists does not use algorithms or profiling to make any decision that would significantly affect you without the opportunity for human review. Artists Meet Artists also does not use or disclose sensitive personal data for any purposes that would require a user to exercise a right to limit processing according to California law.

Artists Meet Artists retains personal data only for so long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, including as described in this Privacy Policy or in our service-specific privacy notices, or as required by law. We will retain your personal data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. When assessing retention periods, we first carefully examine whether it is necessary to retain the personal data collected and, if retention is required, work to retain the personal data for the shortest possible period permissible under law.
