African American Art That Is Readily Available

I opened my Etsy shop because of a desire to share my work with others and see what sort of response I would receive. I also had a strong desire to create African American/Afro Caribbean art and make it readily available to those who wanted it. It was important down the line to reproduce my work in carefully selected formats so that it was affordable to a wider range of people, such as my greeting cards.

I received such an encouraging response in the beginning that I created more and more paintings and the enthusiasm and drive has never left me completely, even when I take breaks from the art world. It still amazes me that my customers are happy to buy my art and have it in their homes and it is still one of the best feelings in the world when I make a sale.

Another thing that drives me is all the self exploration that happens when I paint. There are often many message to myself in my work such as slow down, breathe, take 5 minutes for yourself, be more authentic, what's most important right now? They are like little reminders and it is one of my hopes that these messages are conveyed through my paintings and will help others to explore too.

I want to inspire my two children to never be afraid to share their gifts with the world and to pursue their passions, even if it's only a little bit everyday. I also want them to believe that sharing their gifts is important, if they are being as authentic as they can, because someone, somewhere out there is sure to respond.

    One of my main driving forces for putting my work out there is because I believe that African American art should be readily available to those who want it and need it. I believe that representation matters, so this is me doing my bit to contribute.

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

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised 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 personalised greeting card, for example), if you contact me directly.

2. 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.

3. 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 Royal Mail and Paypal. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services. Here are the privacy policies of the service providers I engage:

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.

4. 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: 6 years.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Stacey-Ann Cole, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at info [!at]
