This privacy notice lets you know what personal information I hold and what I do with it. I take the protection of your personal data very seriously and I comply with the snappily titled General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). I take very good care of any personal data you give me. It is used for the purposes detailed below and for no other purpose. You can ask me to send you what information of yours I have and you can ask for that information to be updated or deleted.
If you have signed up for the mailing list, then I hold your name and email address for the purposes of contacting you with information on new artwork or products, upcoming events, etc. This mailing list is managed by MailChimp. Your data is held on servers located in the United States under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.
You can unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in one of the emails sent by the mailing list.
When you order something from the website shop, I store some personal details in order to send you the physical products that you have purchased. I store your name and postal address. I also store your email address so that I can update you on your order.
This information is used for the sole purpose of fulfilling your order. Your information is not used to contact you for any other purpose, is not transferred to any other organisation or person unless requested to do so by legal authorities. Your information is not sold to any organisation and you will not be automatically subscribed to the mailing list.
When purchasing from the online shop, you have the option to create an account. You may log in to your account here and review the data I hold and update it if required. If you no longer wish to have an account on my website, please contact me on the contact form and I will delete your account.
If you have purchased from the online shop without creating an account I will still hold information necessary to complete your order (your name and address). If you wish for me to delete your personal information, please contact me on the contact form.
I will email you to confirm that your account/information is deleted and I will not contact you again, unless you are subscribed to the mailing list.
If you do not make any further purchases from the website shop, your account will be deleted 5 years after your last order.
Security of your data
Access to your data is password protected so that only authorised people can access it.
When you register your details or place an order, I use a secure server. Any data you give is encrypted using a ‘Transport Layer Security’ (TLS) session. TLS is an industry standard and is one of the best ways to ensure internet communications are not intercepted and read. You will see https:// at the start of the website address, indicating a secure connection.
I use PayPal to manage payments on the website shop. I do not store any information relating to any credit or debit card that may be used to make a purchase on my website.
That’s it… I hope the information above is clear. If you have any questions, please contact me on the contact form.
Thank you for visiting my website.
