when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services
through any linked service, (such as Etsy, youtube etc.) or its related sites and
In general, I do not solicit and I do not share information, however in the process
of fulfilling an order, delivering and tracking an item, or paying a tax, it is
necessary that I keep records and accurately use your information to execute
own or control, any third party services you access through my site.
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you
authorized transaction services to provide to me), 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 of jewelry, for example), if you contact me
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information,
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to
fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke
at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• 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 1) providing and
improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you
requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2)
information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the service
Information about my customers is important to my business. I do not share or
‘sell’ your information, nor do I analyze your consumption. I share your personal
information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services
and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform
functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will
share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent
necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your
information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your
information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a)
respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements,
terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal
activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and
safety of my customers, or others.
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you
required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory
obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep
your data for the following time period: 3 years, or updated as required by law.
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in
the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal
information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government
surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information
about you outside of the EU, I rely on the privacy policies of processing and
delivery services that I use – namely Paypal and USPS.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights
in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply
generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the
personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my
use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances
(like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete
your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information
based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me
after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete
your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to
continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use
of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have),
you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Barbara McGuire, am the data
controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you
may contact me at email@example.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
