WHAT IS IT?
As a business owner, there is certain personal information that I will need to collect from my customer when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services.
This information will include your name, address, telephone number and email, as well as transactional data, such as purchase information and technical data, such as information about cookies. Buyers’ personal information is used for fulfilling orders, providing customer service, and sending marketing messages (ONLY where I have explicitly obtained the buyer’s express consent in advance).
The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other local data protection laws guard how this kind of personal information is collected and used, and protect the privacy rights of buyers. Under these laws, buyers are entitled to certain information, including when, why, how, by whom, and for what purpose personal information is collected, used, and shared.
WHO AM I?
PERSONAL INFORMATION I COLLECT
THE LEGAL BASES I RELY ON TO COLLECT, USE AND SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION
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 a mailing list;
If necessary to comply with a legal obligation such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;
If necessary to comply with court order or in connection with a legal claim
As necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests. For instance, such as: Providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services.
THE THIRD PARTIES WITH WHOM I SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION;
- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services including printers and delivery companies, payment processors, storage providers such as Sync, my web-hosting company JustHostMe and also Google Analytics. I may share/store your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform services required.

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.
THE LENGTH OF TIME I KEEP PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal data that I process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes. You can request for this data to be deleted at any time, by contacting me at: email@example.com
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:

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.
