You will only be added to our mailing list if you ‘consent’ to receive news and marketing emails from us. If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp who provide us with email marketing services. We consider MailChimp to be a third party data processor (see section 5.0). The email address that you submit for purposes of newsletter sign up, will not be stored as hard copy or in any of our internal computer systems and will never be shared. Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by easily unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list. We will also periodically check with you that you still want to hear form us. If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter. While your email address remains within the MailChimp, you will receive periodic (approximately one per month) newsletter style emails from us.
If you visit the craft fair I am attending you may be recorded on CCTV if the location has this in operation. If you purchase from me using cash and collect your item on the day, no personal information will be collected or stored. For made-to-order items that can’t be collected on the day, I will need to ask you for your name and address in order to deliver your order. If I’m unable to hand deliver your item, I would need to pass your name and address to a third party (eg Royal Mail or Courier) in order for them to deliver your parcel.
