These lists are not intended to be exhaustive and may be updated from time to time as our organisational needs and legal requirements dictate.
We protect the security of your personal information in accordance with our legal obligations.
Depending on the way that we have collected your personal information, LADA’s organisational partners may also have access to your data.
For example, if you have applied for an opportunity such as our professional development scheme DIY or a Diverse Actions call out, individuals and partner organisations on the decision/selection panel for that opportunity will have access to your information for the purpose of that panel. Or if you have applied to participate in a DIY workshop, your information will be shared with the DIY lead artist of said workshop.
Your personal details will never be shared with any other outside sources for promotional reasons, or for use other than LADA, Unbound or LAUK related initiatives. When working in partnership with other arts organisations we may ask you if you would like your data to be shared with such partners and if you agree, we will do so.
All of the data we collect is stored on one of the systems listed below. These systems are all password protected, and receive regular updates and maintenance:
Anonymous information is used in aggregated form if you choose to submit survey information to us via the Audience Agency. Tracked data such as cookies through Google Analytics is also collected anonymously and is deleted automatically after a 50 month period.
All data and images collected of Children as part of LADA programmes have either been collected under permissions from partner organisations such as Tate, or LADA will have sought consent prior to processing such data and images. For any questions please contact us here.
Due to our mission as an advocacy and archival organisation for the Live Art sector and the nature of longevity within this art practice/sector, we will retain the personal information that you have provided to us indefinitely. We do so for the purpose of archival/historical records, with the knowledge that an individual may communicate with us at a young age, and then again significantly into the future. Retaining that history is important for the documentation and research of our organisation, monitoring the journey and timeline of Live Art and its artists and arts workers, and advocating for the sector within the UK and internationally.
All data submitted to be housed in our Study Room, including physical and digital resources, will be kept as historical resources for Live Art archiving and research purposes. Such data shall therefore not be tampered with altered or deleted, except in circumstances where new information comes to light or a specific reasonable request has been made by an individual directly affected (for example, an artist no longer wanting a certain work of theirs to be publicly accessible anymore).
In the result of a data breach, LADA has 72 hours to report the incident to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), LADA’s Board and the individuals affected.
A data breach could be but is not limited to, personal information being shared outside of LADA and its associated initiatives (Unbound and Live Art UK), or a hack/breach of any digital systems such as the LADA Server or Content Management System (CMS).
Under GDPR, as an individual, you have the following rights:
If you would like to make a subject access request or implement your right to be forgotten, please contact us here with the subject line “Subject Access Request” or “Right to be Forgotten”.
In line with GDPR:
LADA has a sound understanding of the impacts that the implementation of GDPR will have in most areas, and an understanding of where we require further information to make proper assessments and actions.
We have aspired to understand the new legislation and implement preparatory work accordingly. This work has taken place in the context of LADA being a small not-for-profit organisation, with limited resources and a lack of specialist knowledge in this area, while endeavouring to relate the requirements of the new legislation to our mission as an advocacy and archival organisation for the Live Art sector. We have sought and will continue to seek advice and review further information provided by ICO and other governing bodies to meet full compliance as we understand it, and will update this Policy in future where necessary.
This policy was last updated on July 2021 and is under continuous review.
