Store Privacy Policy

The online store on this site is hosted by Wix and payments are processed through Wix, Square and/or PayPal, depending on the option you select at checkout. This privacy policy relates to my processing of your personal data in conjunction with these services if you place an order on this site.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Wix and your chosen payment gateway - ie. Wix, Square or PayPal - 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 customised orders, for example), if you contact me directly.

 


Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- 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) compliance with the policies and terms of use for sellers set out by Wix, Square and PayPal. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under these terms.


Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

- Wix, Square and PayPal. I share information with Wix, Square and PayPal as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under the policies and terms of use set out by those providers.

- Accountants and Accounting Software Providers. I share basic information relating to all sales with a qualified accountant, and this information is stored in online accounting software provided by FreeAgent. This is necessary for HMRC tax reporting purposes and compliance with UK law.


- 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.

 


Data Retention

In compliance with UK tax regulations, I am required to keep data relating to sales for record-keeping and tax reporting purposes. I generally retain your personal data for up to 7 years from the date at which funds were received into my accounts for each sale. Some of your personal information, associated with purchases you have made through this website (for example, information attached to invoices or receipts), must be retained by law for these purposes. After this period I will no longer retain your data.

 


Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

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 Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer. To facilitate the running of my business, and to help prevent accidental data loss, I use cloud storage services provided by Google, Microsoft and Dropbox, all of which are certified under Privacy Shield.

 


Your Rights

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 below:

- 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 information below.


- 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, Joshua Murfitt, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at joshuamurfitt@me.com, or by using the contact form on this site.
