Privacy Policy

Multistory understands how important it is to protect your privacy and takes its responsibilities regarding the security of customer information very seriously. This statement deals with personally identifiable information (known as ‘Data’) that may be collected on our website or in person when you contact us.

How we collect your Data

Multistory collects personal information from visitors when you request a specific service (such as our free e-newsletters) through the use of online forms and every time you email us your details.

Information provided by you via the ‘subscribe to our mailing list’ forms on this website will be used to send you electronic copies of our newsletter and your details will be stored in a mailing list database. From time to time, Multistory may email you to inform you of new exhibitions, events or items for sale. You can unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of our newsletter emails.

Information provided by you via the contact form on the ‘Contact Us’ page will be used to provide an answer to your enquiry. In addition, information provided by you through the comment forms for blog posts will be stored on a database to record your content for display on this website.
Multistory also collects information about the transactions you undertake in the Multistory on-line shop in order to deliver your purchase. This information is also stored on the PayPal servers.

Use of cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a website can transfer to an individual’s computer hard drive for record keeping. Cookies can make websites easier to use by storing information about your preferences on a particular website.

Most Internet browsers are pre-set to accept cookies. If you prefer not to receive cookies, you can adjust your Internet browser to refuse cookies or to warn you when cookies are being used.

This site may work more efficiently if receipt of cookies is enabled, although it will still operate correctly if you disable cookies.

Other websites

Our website contains links to other websites of interest which are outside Multistory’s control and are not covered by this privacy statement.
