At Studio Bark, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our clients, business partners, visitors to our web site and subscribers to our mailing list. Here you’ll find information on how we treat data that we collect from business communication, visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to our mailing list.
Who we are
When we use ‘we’ we mean Studio Bark, a trading name of Studio Bark LTD. We can be contacted by telephone at 0207 933 4332 or via email at email@example.com.
Information we collect and how we use it
We use your personal data for the purposes of fulfilling our contract with you, or because you have made an enquiry or asked us to do something for you.
This information may include your name, phone number, email address, home address and project information.
To enable diversity monitoring we may ask for additional information, including data such as health, sexuality or ethnicity. It is not mandatory that you give this information.
We may also keep CVs and other application details on file.
In relation to a contract we have with you we only share your personal data to other people/organisations who have a direct (legitimate) relevance/ interest in your project. For example when we obtain quotes on your behalf, e.g. for a civil engineer, ecological consultant or an M&E consultant quote. These organisations will all have their own policies on how they deal with personal data.
As part of the registration process for our mailing list, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to give you updates about Studio Bark; 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.
We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our mail outs. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. All email newsletters contain instructions to unsubscribe from the mailing list. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to remove your email address from our mailing list at any time. We will never sell or share your personal information to any persons or organisations except when required by law for the investigation of illegal or criminal activities, the exercise of legal rights or in defence against any legal claims, or otherwise.
How we protect your personal data
We are committed to ensuring that your identifiable and non-identifiable personal information is secure. We have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. We are not responsible for any breach of security or actions undertaken by any third parties that receive the information.

Ownership of data
We retain all rights of ownership on our software, code, databases, designs and any other internally developed applications. You retain all rights of your data posted on the Site.
How we store data
We use external vendors and hosting companies to provide the software, hardware, storage, networking and other necessary technology required to provide the service. If we have a current contract, or have had in the past, or you have asked us to undertake work for you, we are required to keep your data. We keep your data for 12 years, this is in part due to the legalities of building contracts.
Controlling your personal information
We make every effort to give you access to your personal information, to allow you to correct any inaccuracies, or to remove your personal information at your request provided it is not required for genuine business purposes or by law to be retained.
We require you to identify yourself and the information you request to access, remove, modify or correct before commencing such requests. We may refuse requests that are of unreasonable technical effort or would be highly unfeasible, endanger the privacy of others, or require access that is not normally necessary. When we provide access to your personal information for the purposes of modification, correction or removal, we do so free of charge except where doing so requires an unreasonable effort.
To request access, correction or removal of your personal information, please email email@example.com. We will aim to fulfil your request without delay, our aim is within 7 business days upon receipt of your request, and will be at the latest within one month of the request being received.
We keep our privacy notice under regular review. This privacy notice was last updated on 21st May 2021.
