To be able to order from me I have to collect certain information from you. As part of this, you are required to give your contact information. I use
User name and password - if I collect a user name and password, this is so I can keep your information safe and so that I can have your information to hand each time you visit me.
Name, address and postcode - without this I won't know where to send your order or to whom. I also use postcodes to quickly get your full address to save you typing it out, and to determine which services are available for your area.
Email address - I send confirmation of your orders via email as well as other relevant service, product and marketing communications.
Telephone numbers - if there are any problems with your order or I need to check anything, I need to be able to contact you quickly.
Payment card number, expiry date, issue no and name of card holder – I may collect but will not hold payment card information. Dependant on the ordering method, payment card information is either:
Online - entered onto a secure online payment provider by the cardholder.
In person – taken via a chip and pin terminal

Correspondence - if you contact me I may keep a record of that correspondence.

Notification of Changes to This Policy
For more information see my Terms & Conditions.
I share your personal information with third party service providers that I use to complete services and to manage my infrastructure. I do not sell or disclose your personal information to governments, marketing or advertising services, other clients or anyone else except as outlined in this statement or as may be required by law.
I collect personal information in the course of my business activities. My primary function is as an artist; selling original artworks, prints and personalised gifts. Holding and processing the data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest I pursue in providing my products and services to you.
When I provide my services to you as my client, you are generally responsible for the following aspects of the collection and processing of personal information:

To complete services
When I provide my services to you, I may transmit personal information back and forth. This is done through my secure web platforms, phone and email and occasionally by mail.
Engage services providers
Whilst most of my work is carried out by me whereby I access personal information directly from my systems under my direct control, I use third party service providers for certain specialised tasks, these include storage of data, information technology support and some services I perform for my clients.
It would be impractical to list all the service providers, however, should you wish to understand which service providers may receive your personal information, please contact me.
When I provide services to a client it is done so in accordance with your instructions.
In exceptional circumstances, I may be asked to communicate personal information to law enforcement agencies, national security agencies, courts or other public bodies in any jurisdiction where I are subject to the law, regardless of where personal information is stored. If I receive a production order, warrant, subpoena or other enforceable demand, I will comply as required by law. If I receive a request to provide information voluntarily, I will consider your interests, my business interests, the interests of my clients, public safety implications and my legal obligations prior to deciding whether to communicate personal information. In any case where the information in question was collected from or on behalf of a client, I will consult with you before proceeding unless prohibited by law.
I may proactively communicate personal information to law enforcement or other third parties if necessary to investigate or report a violation of the law or a contractual agreement or if otherwise appropriate and permitted by law.
Much of the personal information I collect comes directly from you, in which case you are in control of its accuracy. My processes for collecting and transcribing personal information are automated to the greatest extent possible and are subject to rigorous quality controls. Information that is found to be inaccurate, either through my own audits or following your request for correction, is updated.
I do not make decisions about you, automated or otherwise, and do not attempt to analyse or predict your behaviour, preferences, interests, health or other personal characteristics.
I do not use your personal information to conduct any research or analysis.
I keep personal information as long as you are a client of mine or as long as I need to keep it to comply with my legal obligations. For information on how long your personal information may be retained, please contact me.
I do not transfer personal information between countries. Your personal information is collected and stored in the United Kingdom.
I have advanced security measures in place to secure and protect your personal information, such as internal and external firewalls, monitoring and alert systems to prevent and detect intrusion attempts. I access data through secure desktop interfaces, and my online interfaces are encrypted, password protected and monitored.
I employ equally rigorous physical security policies to prevent physical access to my premises. My servers and offices, including personal information in hard copy form, are kept in access-controlled and monitored environments.
I restrict access to your personal information and it is only used by me as required to manage my relationship with you and fulfil my legal obligations.
I also enter into contractual agreements with service providers with which I may need to share your personal information, which require them to protect your personal information to the same level as I do.
Providing your information to me is voluntary. The purpose for collecting personal information is to enable me to provide my products and services to you.
Whenever my legitimate basis for collecting and using personal information is your consent, you can withdraw or modify your consent for future collection or use of your personal information at any time, and I will explain the consequences of doing so.
If I use your personal information for sales or marketing purposes, you can ask me to stop at any time and I will do so.
At any time, you can request access to your personal information, request that any inaccuracies will be corrected, and request that comments or explanations be added to records about you.
You can also ask about:
Finally, you can ask me not to collect or use your personal information for certain purposes, you can ask me to delete your personal information, or you can ask me to provide your personal information to a third party.
Depending on which laws apply to your personal information, I may only be able to do some of these things for you. If you request one of these things and I refuse to do it, I will explain your legal rights, the reason for my refusal and any recourse you may have.
I commit to investigating and resolving complaints about my collection or use of your personal information. To make a complaint, please contact me.
