Information I collect

When you purchase something from my store, as part of the buying and selling process, I collect personal information you give such as your name, address, email address and the details of the product you are ordering. When providing this personal information to me to complete a transaction it implies that you consent to me collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

 You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information for custom/ bespoke orders (if you choose to contact me directly), customer surveys, provide feedback and participate in competitions. Website usage information is collected using cookies.

Why I need Your Information and How I use It

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

  2. When you have provided your affirmative consent, such as signing up to my mailing list/ newsletter, which you may unsubscribe from at any time.
  3. if necessary for the purposes of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights of interest, such as providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services
