About InspirationalGecko

Sales 654
On Etsy since 2013

Just listen to the Gecko!

My name is Francesca and I'm an out of town Italian student. I love to create little colorful, silly and cute things using felt.
They are all tiny ideas that have crossed my mind while studying (in a moment of intense academic concentration), sleeping or looking outside my window just in time to see something beautiful.

My shop was born after a couple of years of desperate love for felt. Any time was a good time for creating something: Christmas, a friend's Birthday, a party.. The best part of it was crafting the gift I had in mind, conceived expecially for a person. All by myself! Every stitch was made with love and thinking about the reaction of whom will receive it. And so it is now. The best part of crafting is still the same with the additional detail that now my little fellows are visiting places where I've never been. I'm a little bit jealous but also very proud of them!

I have a little gecko in my room and his name is Dorian. While I'm stitching he just peeps out of his burrow and looks at me smiling. Yes, he smiles! I do think that smiles are my favourite inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by and let the Gecko give you a pinch of luck!

    I'm a student looking for her own way. My writing desk is the point where everything starts. When it's not crowded with books, it's the habitat of a colorful population of felt pieces, threads and strange little creatures.

Questa informativa sulla privacy descrive in che modo e quando raccolgo, utilizzo e condivido le informazioni quando acquisti un articolo da me, quando mi contatti o quando usufruisci dei miei servizi tramite Etsy.com o i suoi siti e servizi correlati.
Questa informativa sulla privacy non si applica alle pratiche di terzi che non dipendono da me e che non controllo, tra cui Etsy o servizi terzi a cui accedi tramite Etsy. Per maggiori informazioni sulle pratiche di Etsy in materia di privacy, puoi consultare l'Informativa sulla privacy di Etsy.

1) Le informazioni che raccolgo
Per completare il tuo ordine, devi fornirmi alcune informazioni (me le ha fornite Etsy dietro tua autorizzazione), come ad esempio il tuo nome, l'indirizzo email, l'indirizzo postale, i dati di pagamento e i dettagli del prodotto che hai ordinato. Potresti decidere di fornirmi ulteriori informazioni personali (ad esempio per ordinare un portachiavi personalizzato), se mi contatti direttamente.

2) Perché mi servono le tue informazioni e come le utilizzo
Faccio affidamento su una serie di basi giuridiche per raccogliere, utilizzare e condividere le tue informazioni, tra cui:
- sono necessarie per fornire i miei servizi, come quando uso le tue informazioni per completare il tuo ordine, per risolvere le dispute o per fornire l'assistenza ai clienti;
- quando hai fornito il tuo consenso affermativo, che puoi revocare in qualsiasi momento;
- se necessarie per la conformità ad obblighi legali o a un'ordinanza del tribunale o in relazione a un'azione legale, come ad esempio conservare le informazioni sul tuo acquisto se richiesto dalla normativa fiscale; e
- se necessarie per il mio interesse legittimo, a condizione che non prevalgano i tuoi diritti o interessi, ad esempio 1) fornire e migliorare i miei servizi. Utilizzo le tue informazioni per fornire i servizi che hai richiesto e nel mio interesse legittimo per migliorare i miei servizi; e 2) Conformità al Regolamento per il venditore e alle Condizioni d'uso di Etsy. Utilizzo le tue informazioni secondo necessità per conformità ai miei obblighi, ai sensi del Regolamento per il venditore e delle Condizioni d'uso di Etsy.

3) Condivisione e divulgazione delle informazioni
Le informazioni sui miei clienti sono importanti per la mia attività. Condividerò le tue informazioni personali solo per ragioni e circostanze limitate, come segue:
- Etsy. Condivido le informazioni con Etsy secondo necessità per fornirti i miei servizi e per conformità ai miei obblighi ai sensi del Regolamento per i venditori e delle Condizioni d'uso di Etsy.
- Fornitori di servizi. Mi avvalgo di terzi di fiducia per l'esecuzione di alcune funzioni e per fornire servizi al mio negozio, ad esempio società di recapito. Condividerò le tue informazioni personali con questi terzi, ma solo per quanto necessario a eseguire questi servizi.
- Trasferimenti d'azienda. Se dovessi procedere alla vendita o alla fusione della mia attività, potrei divulgare le tue informazioni nell'ambito di tale transazione, ma solo nella misura consentita dalla legge.
- Conformità alla legge. Potrei raccogliere, utilizzare, conservare e condividere le tue informazioni se, in buona fede, lo ritenessi ragionevolmente necessario per: (a) rispondere a procedimenti legali o richieste governative; (b) applicare contratti, condizioni e regolamenti; (c) evitare, indagare e contrastare frodi, e altri problemi legati ad attività illegali, alla sicurezza o tecnici; oppure (d) proteggere i diritti, la proprietà e la sicurezza dei miei clienti, o altri.

4) Conservazione dei dati
Conserverò le tue informazioni personali solo per il tempo necessario per fornirti i miei servizi, come indicato nella mia Informativa sulla privacy. Tuttavia, potrei essere tenuto a conservare tali dati per rispettare gli obblighi legali, risolvere le dispute e applicare i contratti. In genere, conservo i tuoi dati per il seguente periodo di tempo: 4 anni.

5) Trasferimenti di informazioni personali all'esterno della UE
Potrei conservare ed elaborare le tue informazioni tramite servizi terzi di hosting negli Stati Uniti e in altre giurisdizioni. Di conseguenza, potrei trasferire le tue informazioni personali a una giurisdizione con leggi sulla protezione dei dati e sulla sorveglianza governativa diverse da quelle in vigore nella tua giurisdizione. Se dovessi trasferire le tue informazioni personali all'esterno della UE, farei affidamento su Privacy Shield come base giuridica per il trasferimento, in quanto Google Cloud dispone di certificazione Privacy Shield.

6) I tuoi diritti
Se risiedi in determinati territori, tra cui la UE, disponi di diversi diritti legati alle tue informazioni personali. Mentre alcuni di questi diritti sono di applicazione generale, altri si applicano solo in alcuni casi specifici. Descrivo questi diritti qui di seguito:
- Accesso. Hai il diritto di accedere e ricevere una copia delle tue informazioni personali in mio possesso contattandomi usando i dati di contatto seguenti.
- Modifica, limitazione, cancellazione Inoltre, hai il diritto di modificare le tue informazioni personali, di limitare l'utilizzo delle tue informazioni personali o di eliminare le tue informazioni personali. Salvo circostanze eccezionali (come nel caso in cui io sia tenuto a conservare i dati a fini legali), in genere elimino le informazioni personali su richiesta.
- Opposizione. Puoi opporti (i) all'elaborazione da parte mia di alcune delle tue informazioni in base al mio legittimo interesse e (ii) alla ricezione di messaggi di marketing da parte mia dopo aver fornito il tuo consenso esplicito a riceverli. In tali casi, eliminerò le tue informazioni personali, salvo il caso in cui da parte mia ci siano motivi preminenti e legittimi per continuare a utilizzare tali informazioni o dove sia necessario per motivi legali.
- Reclamo. Se risiedi nella UE e desideri esprimere un dubbio relativo all'uso delle tue informazioni (e senza alcun pregiudizio ai diritti di cui potresti eventualmente disporre), hai il diritto di farlo presso l'autorità locale preposta alla protezione dei dati.

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) 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 custom keychain, 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 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.

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: 4 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. 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) 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, Francesca Blasi, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at inspirationalgecko [!at] gmail.com.
