    Privacy Policy



    Swann Galleries values the privacy of our clients and visitors to our website. Below, we outline what data we collect and how we control, process and store that data. We are committed to complying with GDPR standards for clients and visitors located in the European Union. We reserve the right to update the policy from time to time. This policy can be found in the footer of swanngalleries.com. We welcome your feedback on our policy or questions regarding the privacy of the information you provide to us. 



    Your Personal Information

    By registering an account on our website, making a purchase through swanngalleries.com, adding keywords, tracking lots, or signing up for mailing lists — and (to a limited extent) merely by accessing our web site (see “Cookies” below) – you will be providing Swann Galleries with data and information that we may process and store (“your information”). We will not sell any of your information.



    How We Use Your Information

    We use your information to share with you timely reminders about auctions, send you invoices, track your sale registration, bidding and consignment history, provide you with information concerning auctions or news that we think may be of interest to you, and implement your communications preferences.



    Storage & Disclosure of Your Information

    We store your information electronically and by other means. We take reasonable measures to safeguard your information. 


    In the normal course of business, we may transfer your information to a third-party vendor via electronic or other means. By contributing your information to our site and doing business with us, you consent to this practice. We take steps to protect your privacy, but please note that transferring information through digital channels bears inherent security risks. 


    Other than as stated in this Policy, we will not disclose your information unless we sell our business to a third-party buyer, or we are legally required to disclose your information, or we feel it necessary to disclose your information in order to address issues involving fraud.




    Our website is designed to place cookies on your computer, which enhances the functionality of the site. What's a cookie? Most browsers give you control over the use of cookies.


    Our third-party vendors store anonymous information gathered by cookies. We access this information to optimize the performance and functionality of our website and gain marketing insights.




    As noted above, Swann Galleries takes reasonable measures to safeguard your information. However, there are inherent security risks in the transmission of data, so we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted over the internet. 


    Further, we cannot be held responsible if you compromise the security of your Swann account by sharing your password or using an insecure or public connection. You are responsible for safeguarding the confidentiality of any password or log-in information you use to communicate with us.



    Third-party Sites & Social Media

    We cannot guarantee the security of third-party websites linked from our site. If you choose to click on such links, please review that site’s privacy policy and make your own decision whether to share your data with them. We also cannot guarantee the security of communications with Swann Galleries staff over social media channels.




    Your privacy is important to us.
