As a home grown and operated business I care deeply about maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to my website. Here you will find information on how I treat data that is collected from visitors to this website, and find links to my affiliated or hosted sites' own privacy policies for further reading.
Visitors to my website
If I do need to collect personally identifiable information through this website I will be up front and honest about this. I will make it clear when I am intending to collect personal information, and will explain what I am going to do with it, and give you the right to opt out if you wish.
Should you wish to contact me through this website using my contact form (for example, to get in touch about a commission enquiry, workshop or an order) then I will require some personal information from you in order to send you a reply - your name and your email address. I will use this information to correspond with you. Your data will not be shared with any other individual, business or organisation.
To process your order I will need your name and address, for posting purposes. I may also have your Etsy username, if you use one, and your email address to confirm the order and dispatch of goods. No information is held anywhere other than the aforementioned sites and will only be held for the purposes mentioned above.
Information held by me
Once your order has been completed I may hold your name and order number on a spreadsheet for my personal records to identify what has been sold for accounting purposes. Your email address may be held separately on file should you wish to sign up to my email newsletter, or be contacted at a later date for private correspondence. This will only be done through pre-agreement and never covertly.
Email subscriptions are held by the Mailchimp marketing platform and should you subscribe you acknowledge that your email address will be transferred to Mailchimp for processing. No other information is gathered at this stage and you can opt out at any time. For more information on Mailchimps' privacy policies, please click here.
Accessing your personal information
You are entitled to access the personal information that I hold. Email your request to me directly rather than through the website contact form and I will be happy to assist you with your enquiry. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Links to other websites
This privacy notice does not cover the links within this site linking to other websites. Those sites are not governed by this privacy notice and if you do have questions about how a site uses your information you will need to check that site's privacy statement.
Changes to this privacy notice
This privacy notice is under regular review and I may update it from time to time. You will always be able to access this notice via the link in my website footer below.
Thank you for reading and for visiting my website.
