About Michael Marshall Smith...

I’ve been a novelist for 25 years, writing as Michael Marshall Smith and Michael Marshall. A few of the books have been best-sellers, they made a TV show of one last year, and another is in development right now.

Words are who I am, but I’ve always enjoyed the visual arts, and worked as a graphic designer before becoming a writer. The images here started to appear a while after I moved to Santa Cruz in 2011. I’ve long been fascinated by tech, and combined with the writer’s natural passion for avoiding doing any actual writing, this led me to start playing with the pictures I was taking. These images weren't captured on a Hasselblad and hand-printed in a lab: from start to finish they were created on a device that fits in my jeans pocket, and that's what I find liberating.

They say a picture's worth a thousand words. I'm not sure that's true (no novelist is likely to buy heavily into that notion), but I do believe they can evoke emotions that it's hard to access or express in language. I enjoy playing with this, and relish the fact that technology enables us to take reality and mould it to look more like the worlds inside our heads.

I hope you like the images… any questions, just ask!

Returns and exchange details
If you are unhappy for any reason then you may return your purchase in original condition and packaging within 7 days for a full refund. You are responsible for return shipping charges. Buyer must contact us prior to shipping to make arrangements and for the return shipping address. Refund will be issued upon receiving print in original condition.

Our payment policy is that we'd like you to.
Your package will be sent in stiff cardboard packaging.

We can ship to the US and any country within the European Union. We can sometimes ship to other places too — but PLEASE CONTACT FIRST to enquire about availability and prices. Orders within the US should take 7-10 days for delivery.

We ship to the address listed with Paypal unless prior arrangements have been made. Please make sure the address listed with Paypal is correct as shipping costs due to re-sending a package are the buyer’s responsibility. If it becomes necessary to resend a package, it will only be mailed after the Paypal invoice for the additional shipping charges is paid.

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.

*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 order of jewelry, 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 fulfill 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 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, 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, Michael Smith, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at raddleberry [!at] mac.com.
