Announcement   Artist OOAK teddy bears and friends, textile brooches and cloth dolls - welcome to my teddy bear shop ImBear (ex BearsAndRoses)! Let artist OOAK teddy bears will make you smile every day!

My name is Ina Smirnova, I am teddy bear artist from Lithuania, Vilnius and I've been designing OOAK teddy bears and their friends for about 9 years already. I've started making teddy bears in the 2008.

Each my teddy bear or friend is OOAK (designed and handcrafted by myself). I create my teddies with love and passion and I hope you will feel it! All my teddy bears and friends are hand-stitched and fully jointed with disks and cotter pins (heads are on waggle joint). I use only high quality professional materials: German, English mohair, viscose, German and Japan alpaca, Japan silk mohair, minifabric, suede, lithuanian, 100% cotton, silk ribbons, English glass eyes and other. I love needle felting, so some of my OOAK teddy bears and friends has needle felted muzzle and nose. My creations are firmly stuffed with polyfil, sawdust or wool and steel, glass or mineral pellets to give them good weight.

As long as I remember myself different kinds of needlework was my hobby. I like to sew, knit, decoupage, scrapbooking. All these (and more others) types of needlework now I use to create my beautiful OOAK teddies. Last few years I also have my growing passion for drawing and photography. Hope you will love my drawings with stories about little girls and their teddy bears!

I don't specially search for inspiration for new teddy bears. Inspiration finds me in completely different ways. It can be interesting concert, nature walk, spending time with friends, stranger on a street - all this and more other can inspire me to create a new teddy. But my greatest inspiration - it's certainly my little daughter! She has a wild imagination and sometimes I even wonder how so many interesting things can fit into her little head.

You are always welcome and maybe you find here your own little friend? So let's make our world more happier with wonderful teddy bears!

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 fulfil 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 order, for example), if you contact me directly via convo or email at bearsandroses888 @ gmail.com

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;
· 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.

- 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.

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.

- 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.
