This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through, or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy, Hotmail, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, eBay, Squarespace, Paypal, Parcelforce, Royal Mail or any third party services you access through any of these. You can reference the various applicable Privacy Policies to learn more about their privacy practices, found here: 












1. Personal information I collect

To fulfil any orders, you must provide me with certain information such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.


2. The legal bases I rely on to collect, use, and share personal information

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

  • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
  • when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for a mailing list;
  • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
  • as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Third Party Seller Policies and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under various Seller Policies and Terms of Use.


3. Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

  • Etsy, eBay, Saatchi Art, Paypal. I share information with these third parties as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both their Seller Policies and Terms of Use.
  • Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
  • Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
  • Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.


4. Data Protection

Digital data is password protected, often with multiple levels of security, or if physical in nature, it is stored in a locked and secure premises. 


5. Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data in emails for the following time periods: 6 years. I retain your personal information on Etsy, eBay, Saatchi Art, Paypal and any other third parties for as long as stated in their user policies.  


6. Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Microsoft Outlook’s Privacy Policies, Apple Inc. data security, Squarespace’s Privacy Shield, Saatchi Art’s Privacy Shield, Etsy Ireland UC’s Privacy Shield, Paypal’s data policies, Krystal Hosting’s data policies, eBay’s data policies, as well as Facebook’s, Instagram’s, and Pinterest’s data policies as legal bases for the transfer. 


7. Cookies

I may choose in the future to use cookies to help me improve, promote, and protect my services. They also help to enable some of the nice features on the website. If they are installed, a statement similar or identical to “By continuing to use the site, you agree to the cookie policy.” will appear in a banner on the web page. If you would not like cookies to be used, do not click ‘continue’ on the banner, and they will not be sent.


8. Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

  • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
  • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
  • Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
  • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.


By using my services you accept the terms of this Privacy Policy.
