The Stoats & Weasels story

I live in Brighton UK in a lovely flat near the sea with my husband and our ginger cat. I used to have a studio space in the centre of town but since lockdown I made the decision to work permanently from home. I though I’d hate it but I don’t! I really enjoy the flexibility it gives me, and of course being able to skive off for a cheeky sea dip when it’s sunny is quite the treat. I moved here in the year 2000 and still love it, there’s such a good creative energy. After spending my childhood growing up as far away from the sea as it’s possible to get (the Midlands) I still get excited when I visit a different seaside, even though the one here is literally at the end of my road, ha!

I studied graphic design at Kingston University in south west London many moons ago and my day job is still being a graphic designer. For the past 8 years I’ve also been making more effort to create my own work too and let my inner child play. It’s such fun to get the daft ideas out of my head and into the outside world. I love it when my work makes people smile, I think that’s what I like best. One of my favourite memories is being at a craft market… a very smartly dressed lady in her 80s (at least) was being wheeled past my stall and she pointed at one of my designs, screeched “TITS” at the top of her voice and then shook with laughter. My Mum must be so proud…

My favourite quote, and motto for life is “you don’t stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.”

When I’m not graphic designing (and often when I supposed to be) I enjoy creating playful and colourful designs for greeting cards, prints, tea towels, badges, fridge magnets and pocket mirrors. My ideas come from living by the seaside, things that amuse me, what’s happening in my world, food, the weather, quirks of British life and just a love of drawing bears. My favourite animals are otters (after my cat of course) but they’re really hard to draw, oops!

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.

Personal Information
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, 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, Lisa Bamford, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at lisa [!at] stoatsandweasels.com
