About WinterberryOriginals

Sales 6,312
On Etsy since 2011

Welcome!

A little bit about me . . . Though I now live in Bloomsburg, PA, I was born and raised in Emmaus, raised both of my daughters in Center Valley, and have lived in the Lehigh Valley area of PA most of my life. I will always consider it "home". But, my husband and our dog are in Bloom . . . . so here I am.

As I'm sure is the case with many, I was introduced to crafting as a Girl Scout. I can still remember presenting my mother with the ugliest necklace to ever exist, having been created from a cork, a bunch of sequins, and a piece of ribbon. Then there was my never-ending hit parade of sad little popsicle stick bowls -- suitable only for holding more popsicle sticks to be used in making the next bowl. And, who can forget all those potholders I made using those hideous stretch jersey "rubberband" things. I finally stopped making those when my Dad had enough to re-shingle the roof.

Many years later, I began "crafting" again, having taught myself how to make my "pinecone ornaments" all of which were given away to family and friends (silly me). After moving to Bloomsburg, I began participating in craft shows with my daughters, selling a variety of crafts and several years later, I found Etsy.

I have recently retired from my "real job" giving me a lot more time to make "stuff". My daughters aren't able to accompany me to craft shows anymore as they are busy with their own families, jobs, and especially our 3 grandchildren, so my husband, Tony, has stepped in. I absolutely love having him along (he does all the loading and lugging containers in and out of venues) and he makes a gallant effort to help me set up my display. However, in addition to displaying things facing the wrong way or in several cases - upside down, he usually manages to destroy several items at every show. (He calls it "random inventory reduction".)

If you're still reading, you're either really bored or a glutton for punishment. Either way, I'm impressed! If your only alternative at the moment is to scrub the bathtub or shave the pills off your sofa, you might want to delay a bit, and check out my other Etsy shop:

Privacy

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 or personalized order, 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;

- 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.

- 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.

Etsy also stores your information and advise that the user send a separate request to Etsy and Etsy can undertake its responsibilities as an independent data controller to respond to the user’s deletion request. As of May, 2018, Etsy generally stores user data in the US. Users outside of North and South America (including the EU) have an agreement with Etsy Ireland UC, and the transfer of their data from Etsy Ireland UC to Etsy Inc. in the US is legitimized via intra-company agreements in accordance with EU law.


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 (A) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests. 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, Deb Dellatore, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at dellator [!at] ptd.net. Alternately, you may mail me at:
Deb Dellatore, 168 Turners Highview Road, Bloomsburg, PA 17815 USA

Frequently asked questions

When shipping to country outside of the United States, is VAT included in your selling price?

No. We are not registered nor authorized to collect VAT. You will be responsible for any associated VAT and handling charges that are levied by your government or postal service with one exception: digital file purchases. Please also be aware that I cannot mark your shipment as a "gift" in an effort for you to avoid these fees. This is illegal and carries significant punishments and fines.

Can you include a message from me in the shipment?

Absolutely! If you are shipping directly to your gift recipient, first be sure to change the shipping address to their address. In the "notes to seller" area, let me know that this is a gift so I do not include any business cards, etc. This is also the place to include the text of your message to the recipient.

What do I do if I receive a damaged or incorrect item?

1. If your item is damaged when received, immediately take pictures of both the item and the box it was shipped in. Save the box and item. DO NOT throw anything away. This is required by USPS. Contact me and include the pictures in your convo.

2. If you've received the wrong item or if the personalization you ordered is incorrect, immediately take a picture of the item/s. Contact me and include the pictures in your convo.

Any last minute advice before I order?

PLEASE be sure your shipping address is current! I will ship to the address you provide. Shipping to an incorrect address will cause delays in receiving your item. Items returned to Winterberry Originals as not deliverable will incur additional shipping charges to send back to you.

AND, please check your email or Etsy convos. It's the ONLY way I have to advise you of an issue with your order. If an order is returned to me marked "undeliverable" and you do not respond to my emails or convos, I will have no choice but to hold your order for a period of time after which I will dispose of it.
