Hello, and welcome to my shop! Awkward Affections is about the beautiful, the nostalgic, and the absurd things in life. I want to make things that will make you laugh, excite your inner nerd, or give just you something to think about. This might be a lot to ask, but I am working on it (and determined).

Everything in the shop is hand drawn, printed and packaged by me in Portland, OR. All printing is done in a giclée, 8 color printing process on high quality, matte paper.

In an order to reduce waste, I put every effort into keeping my shop and packaging environmentally friendly whenever possible. I will no longer include receipts with packages unless otherwise requested (you can still view and print receipts from your purchases tab).

If you have questions, requests or simply want to say hi, feel free to message me!

About AwkwardAffections

Sales 6,626
On Etsy since 2012

Nostalgic obsessions

Awkward Affections is about evasive love, geeky escapism, care-free nostalgia, and the ridiculous, every-day circumstances of life. My best ideas come from quirky interactions with friends (and even strangers). Whether enjoying collective nerdery, or engaging in cheeky banter, everything I make is inspired by personal engagements. Those experiences are the ice cream of life, and I think we could all celebrate our absurdity a little more. By making cards and prints, I hope to share some of the wonder with other people!

Awkward Affections lives in Portland, but has a great desire to discover as many places and things possible (as any other respectable, hopelessly curious, and ambitious toddler). All my work begins with (the-world’s-worst) sketches. Once the drawings are polished and scanned, they are most often finished in Photoshop. Almost everything is painted digitally and then printed right here in my studio. All printing is done in high quality, giclée style, 8 color process printing. Awkward Affections is committed to using as much environmental friendly products as possible in the production. From paper used for prints, to packaging and envelopes, almost everything is sourced from recycled or environmental friendly products.

I take a lot of care with my designs and packaging, but I am always changing and refining those things as much as possible. I make what I enjoy, and while sometimes those things don’t all fit together, I hope somehow it will make sense someday. The process is awkward, but then again, maybe that is the point.

Privacy

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 Etsy.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 Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy 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 Etsy 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 print or wedding invitation, 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 Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and
Terms of Use.
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:
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 of Use.
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
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be 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: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I reside in the US and may also 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, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

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.

How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Kristin “Kaz” Palladino, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at kaz [!at] awkwardaffections.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
Kaz Palladino, 901 SW King Ave, Apt 1001, Portland, OR 97205
