About DollyDecades

Sales 417
On Etsy since 2009

From Local Government to Jewellery Design

I have been making jewellery for over 10 years. I learned my craft at a local jewellery class, which I attended when my first child was a baby. I fell in love with beading there and then!

I started to make jewellery in my spare time and sold a few pieces to family, friends, & work colleagues. I then ventured into selling my designs online and opened my first Etsy shop in 2009. It took me a few months to make my first sale but I was thrilled!

Since that first sale, I have been gradually adding more and more of my pieces to my shop. I have made over 200 sales so far, which is not a great deal compared to some sellers. However, I have been juggling a part time job and two young children as well as making jewellery! I am pleased to say that every one of those sales has been a complete success.

I left my part time job in Local Government in February 2013 to improve my work / life balance. Since 2011, I have suffered from fibromyalgia, which is a chronic pain and fatigue condition. I was struggling to hold down a 9-5 job and also be a good wife and mother. My job was getting the best of me and I had no energy left for home or family. I had to make a drastic lifestyle change, so I took voluntary redundancy from my job.

I became self employed to better manage my health. I am now able to work when I can and then rest when I need to. Dolly Decades became an official business in June 2013. In addition to selling on Etsy, I also sell my pieces on eBay and in a number of local gift shops. My overall aims going forward are to increase my online inventory and expand the number of outside outlets where I sell my products.

Being self employed is quite daunting but the benefits most certainly outweigh the disadvantages. I am so pleased I made the lifestyle change for the sake of my wellbeing and my family.

Thank you for taking an interest in me and my work. X

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 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. Nathan should then go on to include information on the following:

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 order of jewellery, 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.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Nina Jane Cooper, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at ninajanecooper [!at]

If you contact me to access, correct or delete personal information held by Etsy, I may contact Etsy at for assistance, or request that you send a request directly to Etsy.
