About

AFRA

Afra, the white soil in the heavens that no one ever set foot..

Hi,

My name is Asli. I am 39 years old. I have been running Afra actively for 8 years now, and I think it is the best thing I have ever done in my life.

Before getting into the world of knitting, I did advertising for most of my working life. One day I was doing a campaign for a bank, another day preparing an ad for a chocolate brand, and another day for a textile company. I enjoyed it first, but then it started to bug me that I wasn't the one producing things, and that I was merely a person in between companies and consumers. I wanted to offer something myself. Something I would like to share with people that's coming directly from my hands. It didn't take too long for me to part ways with the advertising world, once I realized the hollowness growing inside me. Luckily I wasn't alone. My dear friend, Azra was also feeling the same, and she and I joined up together and started working on something we both loved. Thats's how AFRA got started. We wanted to explore on a new land and rediscover ourselves.

So, the thing I learned from grandma as a kid, became my job later in life, relieving me from stress, fulfilling my desire to create. I love knitting. Coming up with a new idea or a design, choosing the right yarn with right colors, combining stuff to create a whole, both beautiful and functioning product; these are my daily challenges now, and I am happy. I can't describe the feeling it gives me, knowing somewhere in the world, someone is wearing something of my creation.

On the journey we started together with Azra, I am alone now. My dear companion felt like designing clothes for heaven. I am sure angels are better looking now thanks to her. Thanks to her, Afra exists today.

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 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 toimprove 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 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.

- 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, Asli Akbay, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me via Etsy messaging system. I will respond as soon as possible. Alternately, you may mail me at:
atolyeafra [!at] gmail.com
