What personal information we collect and how we collect it
We collect personal information from you when you register as a user of the HMF site so that we, and our partners, may provide services to you. If you decide not to provide personal information to us, you will not be able to register as a user of the HMF site and we will not be able to provide to you the complete range of our services.
The information we collect is the information you give to us and information derived from your use of the HMF site or other communications with us or our partners.
This may include:

How your personal information is used
We use your personal information to provide the services requested by you. We may also use your personal information to provide promotions or other marketing communications to you, or to seek your feedback. We may also use your personal information to personalise the HMF site for you.
How your personal information is disclosed
If you enquire about an artwork, or you purchase an artwork or other product from the HMF site, we will provide your personal information to the third party responsible for answering your query, or fulfilling your order. In turn, this may also require disclosure to shipping companies and insurers.
We may also provide your personal information to payment service providers, such as PayPal, for the purpose of processing your order.
Your personal information may also be disclosed on social media platforms if you use the social media tools available on the HMF site.
We may disclose your personal information where we are required by law to do so or where, in our sole discretion, we consider it necessary or desirable in connection with the investigation of any possible fraud or illegal activity or any activity which may expose us to a liability.

We will provide access to personal information kept by us about you, upon written request.
