PRIVACY POLICY

The security of your data is important to me and I would like you to know why your data is collected and what it is used for.  Visitors to my website can be reassured that I will follow all GDPR guidelines and only use your data in the ways stated in this policy. 

 

VISITORS TO THE WEBSITE

Information about visitors to my website remains anonymous other than your IP address, the type of device used to access my website, and the town/city/country in which you are located. 

ONLINE SHOP

When you buy something from my online shop, I will collect your contact details which will be stored securely on my website.  Payments are made through Paypal and Stripe (for debit/credit cards) so I will only be sent your name and address for delivery purposes.  Commissioned work might involve a bank transfer payment (BACS) and I will keep your name and address securely on my system.  Any paper forms will be stored securely in my home until transferred to an electronic system.  This information will not be transferred to any third parties and will be held for a maximum of three years.

 

MAILING LISTS

I send out occasional newsletters via MailChimp to keep you informed about my latest work, new projects and special offers on my website.  This requires basic contact information such as name and email address.  I may also contact you to check I have your correct information, or to check you are happy still receiving content from me. I will never give, sell, trade or rent any of your data to or with other organisations or businesses.

 

You have the option to unsubscribe at any time to my e-newsletter, either by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of my emails, by emailing joannabriar@gmail.com.

If you choose to unsubscribe from my emails, I will permanently delete all data I hold about you.

 

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

From time to time, I may post links to other websites related to my work or that I think you might be interested in.   This privacy notice does not cover those links or websites. If you have questions about how those sites use your data, please check their privacy notice.

ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You are entitled to request copies of the personal information I hold about you. Please email joannabriar@gmail.com  and I will respond to your request within 14 days.

HOLDING YOUR DATA

Your data will be held for a maximum of 3 years unless you tell me that you would like me to remove it from my system.  I will not pass your data on to any third parties.

UPDATES TO PRIVACY NOTICE

I will review this privacy policy annually and it will remain on my website for visitors to see.  I am not obliged to contact you each time the policy is updated.  Last updated 24th February 2021.

Please email joannabriar@gmail.com if you have any questions regarding this privacy policy.
