privacy policy


PCC is an artist collective and entirely self-funded and non-profit. we have no advertising on our site and therefore strictly speaking not really a need for an elaborate privacy policy. but because you never know, and just to cover all the bases (or at least the ones we are aware of), we tried to come up with one nonetheless.

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE

newsletter: if you sign up to receive our newsletter, you provide your name and email address. these are used solely for the purpose of said newsletter and nothing else. PCC will never share any of your personal information with any third parties. you can always unsubscribe by clicking the UNSUBSCRIBE button at the bottom of the newsletter. our newsletter service is provided by MailChimp. you can find their privacy policy here.


communication: if you contact us via email, either by writing to us directly or by responding to one of our newsletters, we will receive your email address and any other information you choose to provide. we will never use this information for anything other than responding to your email.

submissions: by submitting work to PCC or using our hashtags, you grant us non-exclusive electronic rights to publish your work on our website and social media accounts. all other rights remain with the artist. submissions are published on Instagram, our website or both. should you at any point no longer wish to be associated with PCC, we will do our best to remove your submissions from both Instagram and our website as quickly as possible.

INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED

PCC is hosted on the publishing platform Cargo. to collect statistical and analytical data we use Google Analytics. the information they kindly provide is anonymized and so incredibly complicated that no one ever looks at it. for more information on what exactly they collect and what they do with it, go here.


DONATIONS

if you choose to donate to PCC - which is very much appreciated, thank you - you provide your name and payment card information to us and the financial service provider (PayPal) that handles these transactions. we will never share any of this information with third parties or use it for any other purpose than processing your donation. you can find PayPal’s privacy policy here.


DATA RETENTION

we retain your personal information only as long as necessary (to respond to emails or as long as you wish to receive our newsletter). we may be required to retain information to comply with legal and regulatory obligations (if you made a donation).

DATA TRANSFERS

PCC is based in Paris, France. we do, however, store and process some information outside France through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions (for example Google Analytics & PayPal - see above).

YOUR RIGHTS

shamelessly adapted from Etsy (thank you) but apparently a GDPR requirement (that’s the EU General Data Protection Regulation. if you wonder what that is, go here): 

if you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. while some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. we describe these rights below:

  • access. you may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below
  • change, restrict, delete. you may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request
  • object. you can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. in such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons [makes perfect sense, right!?]
  • complain. if you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority
