About

Plushies and Cuddly Animals for Everyone

Read the interview at the Etsy blog here: https://blog.etsy.com/en/2015/featured-shop-andrea-vida/

Sewing is my passion since I was a child, and making dolls when my children were babies - it was 20 years ago. They do not play with my dolls anymore, but the passion of dollmaking is still alive in me.
Most of my creatures are made of high quality plush and wellsoft fabrics. Sometimes I use recycled materials which are thoroughly selected and carefully cleaned and prepared by me. I prefer natural threads, canvases, linen and wool. I always use high quality polyfill to stuff my dolls.
My dolls are always carefully sewn - most of them are safe for children, even if they are not only for babies. If I use small pieces which are unavailable for toddlers, it is always referenced in the item's description.
Please feel free to browse through my shop and find your favorites!

Shipping
NEW SHIPPING POLICY - Please convo me if you have any questions!

I use two delivery providers - DHL or Hungarian Post.

I use Hungarian Post (in partnership with local postal providers for the adressee's home countries) for most European parcels. These parcels are delivered in 2-4 working days. I always send the parcels tracked - online tracking service will be provided by the local provider for the addressee's home country.
I can also deliver European parcels using DHL service but their price is higher. Please convo me if you prefer DHL service!

I use DHL for most US and Canada parcels. These parcels are usually delivered in 3-5 days and always tracked. Please provide me the adressee's (mobile) phone number so DHL will send a message prior to the delivery!
Some parcels are bigger than DHL's volume limits and sadly delivery cost would be very expensive for these ones. I dispatch these parcels using Hungarian Post's service and they will be delivered by USPS.

DHL service is very expensive for the parcels to be sent to Australia, South or Middle America or Asia. I can send parcels to these continents using Hungarian Post's service. If you would prefer DHL then please convo me and we can discuss the shipping cost options.

READY TO SHIP ITEMS: I ship them in 5-8 business days of finished purchase.

CUSTOM ORDER: please allow me 20-30 working days after received payment to make and ship your order. I always send a mail, when your order is dispatched. If you want them for a specific deadline, convo me, and I will let you know how soon I can make and ship.

Please write me your shipping adress if it doesn't match with your address available on Etsy! It's important, otherwise I will ship to your Etsy address! Thank you!

I do not take the responsibilities for customs fees.

Privacy
Privacy Policy
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.
1. Collecting personal information
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.
2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
• 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.
3. Third parties with whom I share your personal information
• 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 (Hungarian Post, DHL Hungary or DPD Hungaria). 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.
4. The length of time I keep personal information
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.
5. If transferring personal information outside of Europe, how the transfer will be handled
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.
6. Buyers’ rights regarding the use of their personal information and contact details
• 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.
