Privacy Policy


Cell is both Cell Project Space Ltd and Cell Foundation. This privacy policy explains how we use any personal information that we collect about you.

What we collect

We collect the basic personal information that you give us. This includes information that you send to us in order to apply for a studio and the email address you provide when you sign up to the Cell Project Space mailing list via our website. You may opt to provide financial information and sensitive personal information. 

Why we need this

We need to know your basic personal data in order to provide you with information about Cell (including upcoming Cell Project Space exhibitions and events and studio availability information) and sometimes to offer or provide services, enter into contracts, manage the organisation, fulfil legal obligations and to communicate with you. We will not collect personal data from you that we don’t need in order to fulfil these functions.

What we do with this information

The personal data that you send us is processed by Cell staff based at our registered address and held securely. 

We use mailing list providers SendinBlue and MailChimp to send newsletters and to communicate with studio holders. They have separate privacy policies that are available here: Sendinblue Privacy Policy and Mailchimp Privacy Policy.

Our Cell Project Space newsletter is sent using SendinBlue. You can subscribe to this by submitting your email address on our website. This information will only be used to provide you with information about Cell Project Space. We will send this based on your consent. You may withdraw your consent and unsubscribe from this at any time.

If you send us information in application for a studio (by following the procedure set out here: Cell Studios application), we will process this data to determine your eligibility for a studio. As a legitimate interest (i.e. we assume you will want to hear from us about upcoming studios) we will use this information to send you information on available studios. We will send information on appropriate studio availability using MailChimp and will transfer your email address to MailChimp in order to do this. You may unsubscribe from this at any time.

We also use MailChimp to communicate with studio holders in order to fulfil our contracts and will transfer only the basic necessary data (name, email address, studio number) to our MailChimp account in order to do this.

Your personal data is only used for the purpose that you send it to us. We will not share your data with any other third party unless compelled to by law.

How long we keep this information

We are required by law to keep some basic personal data concerning financial records for a minimum of six years.

The email address that you use to sign up to our Cell Project Space newsletter will be kept until such time as you notify us that you want us to remove this information. You can unsubscribe from these emails via the link in each newsletter that we send.

The information that you send to us when enquiring about studio vacancies will be kept until such time as you notify us that want us to remove this information. If you ask us to remove this information, you will need to resubmit this again in order to apply for one of our studios. You can also unsubscribe from studio vacancy emails via the link in each email. You can get in touch if you want more information about how long we keep specific data.

Changes to this policy

We keep our privacy policy under review. Any updates to this policy will be placed on this web page.

You may contact us to find out what information we hold on you. If you believe that any information that we hold on you in incorrect you can request that we correct or delete this information. If you wish to make a complaint about how we have handled your data you may do so by contacting our Directors at our registered address who will ensure that Cell investigates the matter. If you are not satisfied with our response, you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
