About SerenityoftheSouth

Sales 6,684
On Etsy since 2011

I love what I do!

In 2006 I started doing craft shows and have learned to make many other items along the way. In 2007-2008 I opened a store that specialized in selling locally made items, as well as my jewelry. My jewelry has been so well received that I decided to start selling on Etsy to try and expand my market and see what happens! In May of 2014 my lease was up and I decided not to renew it. I was missing out on so much with my family and had no free time. I started focusing on my Etsy shop and developing a website. Now I have more time with my family and can experiment and create new things. Etsy is a great way to stay creative and sell my items to a large audience. I still participate in some craft shows and festivals which I love. But I actually have a personal life now as well!

    I started participating in craft shows in 2006 and made many friends that produced their own merchandise. Several have been very generous in teaching me.I now make all of my jewelry. As time has gone by I have learned to make lots of different items.

Welcome to Serenity of the South! I have been in business since May 2005 - starting out with craft shows. In November 2008 I opened my own store and in July of 2010 moved to our new location. I am a wife of 24 years and mother to two grown boys. I have only discovered my creative side in these last years and am always looking to learn new things. In May of 2014 I decided to close my physical store to allow me more family time. This has not only allowed me more family time but has given me time to focus more on my Etsy store as well as create new items.

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 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.

1. Personal information I collect
The only personal information provided to me by Etsy is your name, address, payment verification and email address. I will only use this information to contact you if I have a question about your order and to ship your order to you. The only other organization this information is shared with would be the shipping company such as USPS, UPS or Fed Ex. Once your order is received by you I would not access your information unless there is a problem with the order.

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 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 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 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.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Kim Mancini, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at mancinisouth01 [!at] Alternately, you may mail me at:
