The policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations & requirements of the users, the website and website owners. Furthermore the way this website processes, stores and protects user data and information will also be detailed within this policy.
In order to operate efficiently and comply with the law, Feast Creative Ltd (‘Feast Creative’, 'JakBox', ‘JAKBOX’, ‘Under The Hammer’, ‘organisation’, ‘we’, ‘us’) must collect information about people with whom we are in contact for professional reasons. These may include website users, buyers, art fans subscribing to our newsletters, current, past and prospective customers, employees, business partners.
This personal information must be handled and shared properly under the Data Protection Act 1998 (‘the Act’). The Act regulates the way that we handle ‘personal data’ that we collect in the course of carrying out our services and creations, and gives certain rights to people whose ‘personal data’ we may hold.
We consider that the correct treatment of ‘personal data’ is integral to our successful operations and to maintaining trust of the persons we deal with. We fully appreciate the underlying principles of the Act and support and adhere to its provisions.
We are registered with the Information Commissioner to process personal data.
Information covered by the Act
The Act uses the term ‘personal data’. For information held by Feast Creative, personal data essentially means any recorded information held by us and from which a living individual can be identified. It will include a variety of information including names, addresses, telephone numbers, email and maybe other personal details. It will basically include details you provided us when purchasing/bidding online at underthehammer.london, and more generally when contacting us for any subject of interest for you and us.
Data protection principles
We will comply with the eight enforceable data protection principles by making sure that personal data is:
- fairly and lawfully processed
- processed for limited purposes
- adequate, relevant and not excessive
- accurate and kept up to date
- not kept longer than necessary
- processed in accordance with the individual’s rights

- the processing is necessary to protect vital interests of the individual
- the processing is necessary to carry out public functions eg. administration of justice
- the processing is necessary in order to pursue our legitimate interests or those of third parties (unless it could unjustifiably prejudice the interests of the individual)
Under the Act, one of a set of additional conditions must be met for ‘sensitive personal data’. This includes information about racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious and other beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health condition, sex life, criminal proceedings or convictions. We will ensure that one of the following additional conditions are met before we process any sensitive personal data:
- the individual has explicitly consented to the processing

- we need to process the information in order to protect the vital interests of the individual or another person
