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 woocommerce, wordpress.com, or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including woocommerce or any third party services you access through wordpress. You can reference the woocommerce and WordPress Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized wordpress and woocommerce 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 paintings or sculpture, for example), if you contact me directly.

Some Of The Information We Collect Through WordPress

Name and email address in comment forms
Comment form cookie which remembers a user’s name or email address.
Name and email addresses submitted by user by using a contact form
Name and email address submitted to sign up for email list
Information collected when users register on a website.
Google Analytics tracking
Facebook page plugin and like button cookies
Other social media platform widgets that track users
Advertising programs like Google Adsense which track users

I use woocommerce which is powered through Automatic (Which is a trusted platform for wordpress websites) so any information about my store is referred to as Woocommerce. You may opt in to receive my newsletter/blog elsewhere on my site. When you receive an email, you may unsubscribe at any time by clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom of each newsletter. My blog is powered only by WordPress.

Patreon features in this website

In order to enable you to use this website with Patreon services, we save certain functionally important Patreon information about you in this website if you log in with Patreon.

These include your Patreon user id, Patreon username, your first, last names and your vanity name. Additionally, the id of your campaign at Patreon and your campaign’s Patreon URL are also saved.

If you request that your data be deleted from this website, this data will also be deleted and Patreon functionality will not work. You would need to register on this website and log in to this website with Patreon again in order to re-populate this data and have Patreon functionality working again.

This sample language includes the basics around what personal data your store may be collecting, storing and sharing, as well as who may have access to that data. Depending on what settings are enabled and which additional plugins are used, the specific information shared by your store will vary. We recommend consulting with a lawyer when deciding what information to disclose on your privacy policy.

We collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.

We share information with third parties who help us provide our orders and store services to you; for example —

Payments

In this subsection you should list which third party payment processors you’re using to take payments on your store since these may handle customer data. We’ve included PayPal as an example, but you should remove this if you’re not using PayPal.

We accept payments through PayPal. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.

Transfers of Personal Information

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.

The United States, European Economic Area (“EEA”) Member States, and other countries all have different laws. When your information is moved from your home country to another country, the laws and rules that protect your personal information in the country to which your information is transferred may be different from those in the country in which you live. For example, the circumstances in which law enforcement can access personal information may vary from country to country. In particular, if your information is in the US, it may be accessed by government authorities in accordance with US law.

To the extent that I is deemed to transfer personal information outside of the EEA, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud and Google LLC are Privacy Shield certified.
