Privacy Policy

 

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 Polkadots Crafts website, Etsy, Facebook or Instagram.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control.

 

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order or answer queries, you must provide me with certain information (which is sometimes provided via third parties such as Etsy or Paypal), 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) if you contact me directly.

All pictures provided to me will only be used for advertising if permission has been given by the customer.

 

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:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time,.

• 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 providing and improving my services and compliance with related third party terms of use (for example: Etsy, Paypal and Facebook)

I generally keep your data for 6 years, in compliance with legal requirements set by HMRC
