Use of Personal Information

We use your personal information to provide our services, including offering products for sale, processing payments, shipping and fulfilling your order, and keeping you updated about new products, services, and offers.

Legal Basis

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), if you are a resident of the European Economic Area ("EEE"), we process your personal information under the following legal bases:

- Your consent;
- The performance of the contract between you and the Site;
- Compliance with our legal obligations;
- To protect your vital interests;
- To perform a task carried out in the public interest;
- For our legitimate interests, which do not override your fundamental rights and freedoms.


When you place an order through the Site, we will retain your personal information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information. For more information about your right to erasure, please refer to the "Your Rights" section below.

Automated Decision Making

If you are a resident of the EEE, you have the right to object to processing based solely on automated decision making (including profiling) when that decision-making has a legal effect on you or significantly affects you in another way.

We do not engage in fully automated decision-making that has a legal or significant effect on you using customer data. Our processor Shopify uses limited automated decision-making to prevent fraud, which does not have a legal or significant effect on you.

Services including elements of automated decision-making include:

- Temporary denial list of IP addresses associated with repeated failed transactions. This denylist persists for a few hours.
- Temporary denylist of credit cards associated with denied IP addresses. This denylist persists for a few days.


If you are a resident of the EEE, you have the right to access the personal information we have about you, transfer it to a new service, and request that it be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you wish to exercise these rights, please contact us through the contact information below: [infoarcagallery@gmail.com](mailto:infoarcagallery@gmail.com)

Your personal information will be initially processed in Ireland and then transferred outside of Europe for further storage and processing, including to Canada and the United States. For more information on how data transfers comply with the GDPR, please refer to Shopify's GDPR Technical Whitepaper: [GDPR Technical Whitepaper](https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/your-account/privacy/GDPR).

To exercise your rights or opt-out of certain uses of your information by these parties, follow the instructions in the "Behavioral Advertising" section above.
