WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

CONTACT FORMS
Information collected via contact forms is used only by us to communicate with you regarding your enquiries. No one else receives this information.

ANALYTICS
We use Google Analytics to track anonymous usage data. Information is collected through the use of cookies and is used only to analyse site performance, and this gives us information on page views and site traffic (but NOT anything about who you are or any kind of personal information of any kind).

SHOPIFY
We use Shopify to power our online shop. We require your information in order to complete your order. However no information or any details provided to us with your order will be used for targeted marketing. 

ABOUT COOKIES
Cookies are used by various plugins on my site in order to give me information about website visitors (analytics), to keep track of cookie consent/denial, to monitor shop information, and used by various social media sites when we embed content from them.

You may opt out of cookies when you visit via the banner at the bottom of the page.

You can also clear your browser cache of all data (many cookies only last for a “session,” i.e. the duration of your visit).

WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH

  • We do not share names or email addresses sent via contact forms with any other party.
  • Google Analytics only retains info about visitors, pages viewed, etc. GA does not collect any info that could identify you personally (but they collect data around the web in various forms and aggregate it, so see further info below to manage that data).
  • Data collected by our shopping cart, Shopify, is only used by us to manage orders. Shopify does not collect any data from us (We have opted out of their data collection).
  • Shopify itself does not share any data with anyone.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA

GOOGLE ANALYTICS
Google Analytics keeps data on site traffic up to 14 months, the shortest retention period available (but remember, site stats do not have any info about who you are personally). While my site does not give Google any personal info about you, other websites might have at some point…you can find out more & use tools to manage your Google data here.

SHOPIFY
Data is not yet actively collected by Shopify.

HOW YOUR DATA IS PROTECTED
We use the plugin WPSecurity to keep the site and data secure. We also use two-factor authentication for my domain and hosting. Our website is hosted on a secure server & your transactions are carried out externally through secure payment systems. Their Privacy Policy can be seen here.

While I do not personally keep any data on any visitors, some plugins that I use do keep data. These plugins are all GDPR-compliant (or about to be), and have provided detailed privacy information:
