About MTCstudio

Sales 10
On Etsy since 2009

Designing jewelry and objects with geometry and minimalism in mind since 2005.

Meet The Cat is a small design studio by designer Ioanna Koulouri based in Athens, Greece. We create conceptual jewelry and object collections focusing on geometry and minimal aesthetic while borrowing concepts by architectural movements. We love experimentation and exploring new techniques and mediums trying to bring to life our imaginary objects.

ETHOS
When you purchase a piece from Meet The Cat studio, you can do so knowing that we are committed to producing and consuming thoughtfully. We collaborate with local artisans and small businesses for our production and material sourcing and we use recycled metal and packaging for our products as much as possible. All pieces are made to order to reduce environmental impact and avoid waste.

THE DESIGNER
I am Ioanna and I was born in Athens and raised in a creative family. From a very young age I loved tools, materials and techniques. I studied Statistics at the University of Piraeus and worked in advertising for a few years, until I gave in to my love for design and making.
Largely self-taught, I launched my first collection in 2005 and since then my collections were exhibited in many stores and galleries in Greece and abroad, I have participated in various exhibitions and cooperated with amazing fellow designers on synergic projects.

Privacy

Information We Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to us), such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact us directly.

Why We Need Your Information and How We Use It:

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
-as needed to provide our services, such as when we 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 our 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 our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving our services. We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest toimprove our services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. We use your information as necessary to comply with our obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:

Information about our customers is important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
-Etsy. We share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you our services and comply with our obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
-Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
-Compliance with laws. We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce our 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 our customers, or others.


Data Retention:

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and as described in our Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We generally keep your data for the following time period: 3 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU:

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

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. We describe these rights below:
-Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.
-Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.
-Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we 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 our 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.
