About Our Life Story by StrawberryCouture

I am like nothing else in the world, full of imagination and education. New thoughts excite me and I want to understand them, like learning new things and making a reason for them.

Our life story began when my husband and I met in the Army. I served 5 years as an Army cook. Within those 5 years, I served one overseas hardship tour in Korea for 1 year and worked 14-hour workdays 12 days straightforward.

Fernando aka Freddy, my hero husband served 15 years as an Army support truck driver. He served in 2 wars: Operation Desert Storm and Operation Restore Hope in Somalia. One of the units he supported was the 10 Mountain Division, delivering supplies to war zones. The movie Black Hawk Down recreates this. Today, he suffers from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). PTSD, a severe anxiety disorder, develops after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. This is common to combat veterans. After serving 2 combat tours of Desert Storm and Somalia he cannot be alone for a long period. Thus the VA (Department of Veteran's Affairs) recommended he stay at home.

My husband is a hero! While I stay at home and maintain this business, we relish the chance to do simple things together.

I encourage individuals to consider unheard-of options as I do. I need individuals to see the world and think as I do. Magnificence exists to making your own particular form of a typical thing.

My hats and scarves have a gigantic impact on numerical shapes. I need to do what nobody else has done. This means having the need to crochet and knit everything from a basic ruffle infinity scarf to a hat design.

I do everything myself. This includes writing PDF crochet patterns, test crocheting them, taking orders, working the PC, etc. I work alone and enjoy communicating across the globe.

Privacy
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 (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), 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 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.

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, Lenore Elise Berry-Zaragosa, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me in a convo on Etsy, or at fred_len1 [!at] yahoo.com, or write to me at 6162 Misty Meadow Rd Apt 1107, Corpus Christi, Texas, United States.
