Privacy

My name is Kate and I sell on Etsy using the handle “FeltWickedArt.” For several years I was also known on Etsy as “HandiCraftKate.” The information provided below details the sort of information I may collect so I can sell my products on Etsy, as well as specifics on how I use that information, and how I protect that information.

♥Consent
By contacting me, interacting with my Etsy shop or related online services, or by purchasing something from me you are consenting to this policy. There is no way I can conduct business with you otherwise. At the same time I do want you to feel respected and for your personal data to be used in ways that are fair and legal. Please contact me with any questions or concerns and I will do my best to address them.

♥The Scope of this Privacy Policy
Basically this policy covers any personal data that I receive about you. “Personal data” simply refers to any information I receive that can be used to identify you in particular. It does not include general (“non-personal”) information. Here are some more specifics about what this policy covers:

1. This Privacy Policy covers any personal data that is given to me directly by you (the user/customer). Examples include messages sent to me through Etsy, e-mails, and notes left for me when you checkout that include such information as your full name or e-mail address information.
2. This Privacy Policy also covers any personal data about you that is given to me indirectly. Examples include your preferred shipping address given to me by Etsy or your full name given to me by PayPal.
3. This does not include data that cannot be used to identify you in particular. Examples include general analytical information given to me by Etsy or Facebook which show me such things as the methods most people use to find my shop online (either through Google search results, Facebook ads, direct traffic, etc.).
4. This policy also does not cover information gathered by another party on my behalf that is not given to me. Examples include your specific credit card number given to Etsy or PayPal to facilitate payment or demographic information given to Etsy (such as your birthday).

Information I gather can vary from interaction to interaction so I cannot give a comprehensive list of what I collect. Generally though I receive the following personal information, either directly or indirectly: Your name, your shipping address, your method of payment, your size (such as a specific head measurement), and your e-mail address.

♥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. Basically they can be reduced to the following four points.

1. Much of the personal data I receive is necessary simply for me to conduct my business. This includes fulfilling your orders, settling disputes, providing customer support, and complying with the policies of the services I also make use of (such as Etsy).
2. I do have a mailing list of those who have expressed interest in learning more about taking classes or purchasing tutorials from me. This list is used to send out an occasional e-mail newsletter. I do not put anyone on this list unless they express direct interest. If someone does purchase learning materials from me I may also send a single e-mail or Etsy message letting them know about this e-mail list and asking if they want to join. I only put them on the list if they answer back specifically that they do want to join that list. Otherwise no other contact is made along these lines.
3. In some cases I may use your personal data 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.
4. I may use your information to improve my business practices, but not in a way that violates or overrides your own rights and interests.

I use these four points for the sake of brevity. They do not cover all of the legal bases I rely on. As stated, individual interactions can also be highly varied and may not fall neatly into the four categories above.

♥Information Sharing & Disclosure
Whenever possible I do not share your personal information. But there may be times when information sharing is needed and I take this responsibility seriously. Outlined below are the ways that I may need to share your information with others.

1. Engaging with trusted service providers, such as Etsy or a shipping company. This is done to facilitate my business (as detailed previously) and to comply with the policies of those services. I only share the information that is absolutely necessary.
2. Shifting my business, such as selling it or merging with another business, requires your personal information that I have collected to be given to the care of this new entity (to the extend required by law).
3. Information may need to be shared in order to comply with laws, legal process, and government requests. As already noted, only what information is strictly needed will be provided.
4. Information may need to be shared in order to safeguard the rights, property, and safety of my customers, myself, and 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: 5 years after most recent interaction.

♥Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I live and work in America and I also make use of services that may otherwise be outside the jurisdiction of the EU (such as Etsy, e-mail services, and PayPal). This means that the moment you begin interacting with me or the services I use to facilitate my business you may be transferring personal information outside of the EU.

I endeavor to protect your personal information, even when it is transferred outside of the EU by only using established and reputable companies and services as well as only using services with up-to-date privacy policies and encryption.

♥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:

1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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, Kate (FeltWickedArt / HandiCraftKate), am the data controller of the personal information I directly and indirectly receive as outlined in this policy. You may contact me through any of the platforms I use including Etsy and Facebook. For a more direct and secure method of communication e-mail would be best. My business e-mail is: Kate [!at] FeltWicked.Art

I would be glad to answer any of your questions and concerns and to work with you to make sure your personal data is being handled in a way that is respectful, secure, and legal.
