Types of data we collect


Website Cookies


We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. When someone visits this website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.


Our website does not store any information in cookies that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by this website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties.
View more detailed information on the cookies we use below.


Mailing List

As part of the registration process for our newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied to stay on the mailing list. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We send our newsletter from our own server using an SMTP mailing service supplied by Mailpoet. For more information, please see Mailpoet’s privacy notice here.  We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our newsletter. You can unsubscribe from general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.

Detailed Privacy Policy


This is the privacy notice of THEPORTALARTS.COM. In this document, “we”, “our”, or “us” refer to THEPORTALARTS.COM. Our registered address is The Portal Arts, 978 Govan Rd, Govan, Glasgow G51 3AJ.






  1. This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all information that we record about you. It sets out the conditions under which we may process any information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.
  2. We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our website immediately.
  3. We take seriously the protection of your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all visitors to our website are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.
  4. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, and hope that you reciprocate.
  5. Our policy complies with UK law accordingly implemented, including that required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  6. The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regards to the processing and control of your personal data. We do this now, by requesting that you read the information provided at knowyourprivacyrights.org
  7. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.




The basis on which we process information about you


The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.


If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.


If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.





1. Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you


When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.


In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.


We may use it in order to:

  • verify your identity for security purposes
  • sell products to you
  • provide you with our services
  • provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website


We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.


Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we provide. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.


We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.




2. Information we process with your consent


Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.


Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies.


Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.


Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website.


If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.


We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.


You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us using our contact form. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.




3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests


We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.


Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:


  • whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
  • whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
  • whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so


For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:


  • record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our organisation and business
  • responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
  • protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
  • insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage organisational or business risk
  • protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so




4. Information we process because we have a legal obligation


We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.


For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.


This may include your personal information.




5. Sending a message to our support team


When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need.


We record your request and our reply in order to increase the efficiency of our business & organisation.


We keep personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our communications with you to provide a high quality service.




6. Complaining


When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us.


We use that information to resolve your complaint.


If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.


We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.




Use of information we collect through automated systems when you visit our website




7. Cookies


Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer’s hard drive by your web browser when you visit any website. They allow information gathered on one web page to be stored until it is needed for use on another, allowing a website to provide you with a personalised experience and the website owner with statistics about how you use the website so that it can be improved.


Some cookies may last for a defined period of time, such as one day or until you close your browser. Others last indefinitely.


Your web browser should allow you to delete any you choose. It also should allow you to prevent or limit their use.


Our website uses cookies. They are placed by software that operates on our servers, and by software operated by third parties whose services we use.


When you first visit our website, we ask you whether you wish us to use cookies. If you choose not to accept them, we shall not use them for your visit except to record that you have not consented to their use for any other purpose.


If you choose not to use cookies or you prevent their use through your browser settings, you will not be able to use all the functionality of our website.


We use cookies in the following ways:


  • to track how you use our website
  • to record whether you have seen specific messages we display on our website
  • to keep you signed in our site
  • to record your answers to surveys and questionnaires on our site while you complete them
  • to record the conversation thread during a live chat with our support team


This site uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience. We use cookies to retain your user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, logged in areas and to provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. We also use them to let us know if you’ve already seen a particular piece of content so we wont display it again.


Details on the third party cookies we use are noted below .


As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser.


We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.



On our Site, we use the following cookies:


Google Analytics


This website uses Google Analytics, a web-analysis service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies and similar technologies to analyse and improve our website on the basis of your usage pattern. The data accrued in this context may be transmitted by Google for analysis to a server in the USA and stored there. Should personal data be transmitted to the USA, Google has acceded to the EU-US Privacy Shield. Your IP address will be abbreviated prior to the analysis of usage statistics, however, so that no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. For this purpose, Google Analytics has been extended on our website to include the code “anonymizeIP”, in order to guarantee an anonymised capture of IP addresses.


Google will process the information in order to evaluate your use of the website, to assemble reports on the website activities for the website operators, and to supply further services connected with website use and internet use.


As mentioned above, you can configure your browser so that it rejects cookies, or you can prevent the data being used by Google Analytics by downloading and installing this browser add-on provided by Google.


You will find more detailed information on this matter in the Privacy Statement of Google Analytics.



Google Tag Manager


Our website uses Google Tag Manager, a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). The Tag Manager is used to manage tracking tools and other services, so-called website tags. A tag is an element that is stored in the source code of our website in order to record, for example, predefined usage data, such as an IP address. The Google Tag Manager does not use cookies and does not collect any personal data. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect data. Some of the data is stored on a Google server in the USA. In the event that personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.


For more information, please refer to their privacy policy and Google’s further information about Tag Manager.



Social media plug-ins


On certain pages of the Site we may implement “social media” plug-ins, in particular a feed from the bands official Facebook page and various social media share buttons. When you visit a page that displays any of these plugins, your browser will establish a direct connection to the relevant social media server and load content from there. At the same time the provider of the social media service may know that the relevant page on the Site has been visited.


We have no influence on the data that any such social media provider collects on the basis of such plugins. According to the available information, however, if you do not click on the content, none of your personal data will be collected and stored unless you have logged onto to your social media account. In that case, certain user data (including your IP address at the time) may be collected and linked to the account information already present at the social media service. If you wish to prevent this, please log out of your social media accounts before visiting our Site.


In addition, clicking social media content may also lead to a collection of certain data, such as your IP address. Social media providers such as Facebook, Google or Twitter may set cookies as well, unless you have disabled the acceptance and storage of cookies in your browser settings (see above).


We receive no information from social media providers about which social media content you may personally have clicked or seen on the Site. If at all, we may receive a summarised, non-personalised statistical report on the use of the plugins.
