GDPR is the biggest change to UK data privacy law in years. It's all about giving you more control over your data: what data I hold and how I can use it.
To comply with GDPR, you can choose how I contact you and can change your mind at any time.
The personal information that I collect from you (such as name, address or email address) will only be held on my system to manage your account and inform you of any relevant information relating to my services. It won't be used for marketing purposes without your permission. You can ask me to remove your data from my records at any time.
Protection of Information
I won't pass personal information onto third parties unless I am required by law or by a regulatory or government authority to do so.
I use session cookies which last only for the duration of your visit. They are deleted when you close your browser. These facilitate various tasks such as allowing a website to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality. This will be called PHPSESSID.
Whilst you don't need to allow your browser to accept cookies in order to browse much of my website or to access many of my services, you must have cookies enabled if you wish to shop online at any of my stores or access any areas reserved for registered users.
Third party cookies
_gat, _ga and _gid - I use these Google Analytics cookies to monitor your presence on my website and see which pages you visit. This helps me to make informed decisions about design, content and development to enhance your user experience.
How I protect your information
The personal information I collect is kept on a web server in a secure environment. It will also be stored in a secure mail server and may be added to a secure cloud storage service, such as Google Drive. I can't guarantee the security of data you release online and you accept that the internet is not entirely secure and agree that I am not liable for the unlawful use, circulation or destruction of your personal information.
At times I will need to make policy changes and will update my website accordingly. If you need any further information about my privacy processes, please contact me.
