About

The World Is Our Playground

How It Started:
Back in 2005 I got my first sewing machine and after making myself, family, and friends bags and pouches for about a year, I started selling them. I was getting requests from friends of friends and people at school. About this time I also started selling at craft shows and comic conventions. I received a lot of positive comments and met so many awesome people, so this just fueled my passion to keep making things!

Why These Products:
I'm the type of person who always has extra tote bags to carry my parcels to the post office, to put a board game in when visiting a friend, or to stuff candy and snacks in when heading to a movie night.

I like the idea of making bags that are machine washable and can be used ANYWHERE and to carry ANYTHING. They're versatile, cute, environmentally-friendly, and can show off a bit of your personality. My pouches are also machine washable and are perfect to hold whatever you want! I carry two of my pouches in my purse daily so all my makeup, feminine products, and medication aren't hiding in the darkness at the bottom of my purse.

Inspiration:
I love fun, colourful, and geeky prints! I also reuse second-hand sheets which is the perfect way to carry around your childhood hero with you on a daily basis (Strawberry Shortcake or Spider-man anyone?).

I believe the world is our playground so why not carry a bright pink bag covered in cupcakes?!?! If it makes you happy, then do it!

I blog about my life adventures, fur babies, baking, crafts and inspirations over at:

I'm also a staff member at International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club!
www.geekgirlpenpals.com

Please check out the site and register for a pen pal if you're interested in connecting with geeks from around the world! The website has become a wonderful and supportive community for geeks to be open and honest and discuss whatever is on their mind.

Additional policies and FAQs
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.

Information I Collect

To fulfill 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, if you contact me directly.

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 fulfill 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Jen Giammarco, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at sparklegirl.jen [!at] gmail.com.
