Who we are
This website is run by Colin Usher and Julia Douglas, the co-founders of Studio Faire. Our website address is: https://studiofaire.fr.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If you contact us using one of our contact forms, we will receive your name and email address as a direct email. This will sit in our private mail account on our password protected computers forever, unless you contact us to ask us to delete it. Only Colin and Julia have the passwords for these computers. We like to keep these emails for archival purposes, incase you contact us again. But we don’t do anything with them apart from respond to your enquiry.
If you fill in our application form, we will be sent the information you provide into our direct email account. This will sit in our private mail account on our password protected computers forever, unless you contact us to ask us to delete it. Only Colin and Julia have the passwords for these computers.
Once we have considered your application, we might ask you to fill in a word document with some more information. These Word Documents will be stored on our password protected computer until three months after your residency has ended. We will then delete this document unless something has happened during your residency which might make these documents still necessary, like there has been an accident or something similar. We’ll only ever share this information with anyone else for legal or medical reasons if something happens during your residency.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Yes, we use Google Analytics, of course we do! We want to know how many people are looking at this website and how you came across it. If we write a blog and share it on Facebook, we enjoy seeing that big spike in our hits… who wouldn’t? It also helps us to learn what you are most interested in so that we can tell you more about that kind of thing. I hope that’s ok with you?
Google Analytics doesn’t store any really personal data about you though. All we see is that a person or many people have interacted with the website in a particular way.
Who we share your data with
No-one, unless you come here on a residency and have an accident, get ill or are involved in a crime. I can’t think of any other reason why we would.
If we send you an invoice, this will have your name and address on it. We might have to show this to our accountant if he wants to see it.
How long we retain your data
If you send us an application form through our website it will probably stay in our email sent files folder for a very long time. I’d like to say we’ll delete it after three months, but we might forget! We’re far too busy doing fun things!!! If you want us to delete it… just ask Julia.
If we send you an invoice, this will have your name and address on it. We have to keep this for a few years for our accounts.
What rights you have over your data
You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How we protect your data
We only keep your data on our personal computers which are all password protected.
