Privacy Policy

At New Emergence Art we take your privacy very seriously. Our privacy policy below explains what information we collect and how we use it and protect it. We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our audience and clients.  

We will never sell, distribute or make public your personal information.


Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address, which could be used to personally identify you, but Google does not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see below).

GA makes use of cookies, which are short text files stored on a user’s device (such as a computer, tablet or phone) by a website. Cookies are used for the technical functioning of a website or for gathering statistics. They are also typically used to provide a more personalised experience for a user – for example, when an online service remembers your user profile without you having to login.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.


We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

Information that you provide to us in order to subscribe to our newsletters, enter the competition, interact with us, request any of our services and attendance to our events. This includes via email, messaging services, social media, phone and in person.

Any other information that you choose to send to us.

We may use publicly available information to amend our records.

We may compile and reconcile your information from our 3rd parties detailed in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose information about you to any of our employees, officers or agents (for example, to the members of the Judging Panel) insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this Privacy Policy.
In addition, we may disclose your personal information:

4. To any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
Security of your personal information
We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide directly to us on password-protected computers, devices, the cloud and software.
Data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet or other transmission methods.

Your rights
We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, assuming you provide us with the information we need to do so. If your data changes (for example, if you have a new email address), then you are responsible for notifying us of those changes.

Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold, or process on behalf of a third party, any of your personal information. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide you with our services. Unless it is prohibited by law, we will remove any personal information about you from our records at your request.


You may ask us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to all of the following:
Request by email sent to and allowing 14 days for us to acknowledge and reply with instructions

Two appropriate documents proving your identity, one of which is an official identification document with photo id (e.g. copies of passport or driving licence), and also one which shows evidence of address (e.g. bank statement or utility bill).
We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.
