Privacy Policy

Here at the Bateman Foundation, we believe privacy is a fundamental human right. Since it is impossible for us to provide our programs without collecting some personal information, we strive to protect your privacy to the best of our abilities. We fully comply with the Personal information Protection Act of British Columbia, as well as the upcoming federal Digital Charter Implementation Act, and we aim for above and beyond. The Bateman Foundation operates the Bateman Gallery and the Bateman Gallery Gift Shop. This Privacy Policy applies to all entities operated under the Bateman Foundation, and outlines what information is collected, how we use your information and your privacy rights.

Any and all information is collected directly from you, and we do not acquire any data from third-party data vendors. We do not sell or share your information with unrelated third parties. We do not retain your information for a period longer than necessary. We may anonymize your information, by stripping away any and all personal identifiers such as name and address, for internal research and development purposes. We do not use automated decision systems.

We do not collect, use or disclose your information without your consent. You are not required to provide your consent to access our services unless it is necessary. If we change the way we collect, use or disclose your information, we will re-obtain your consent, and you will be able to withdraw your consent if you do not agree with the new policy.

Service Providers

We rely on service providers – organizations who have access to and process your personal information on our behalf – in order for us to provide our programs. For example, collecting payments and emailing receipts. We hold our service providers to the same level of privacy protection as we do.
