By reading or using this website you indicate your acceptance and agreement with the following terms and information. If you do not accept these terms, please do not use this website.
I will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorised third party.
How I Collect and Use Information
This Site only contacts individuals who specifically request that I do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive my email communications. This Site collects personally identifying information from my users during online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration to receive our newsletters and name, email address, postal address, and credit card information when purchasing my products or services. All of this information is provided to me by you.
I also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, I may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows me, among other things, to improve the delivery of my web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site. I also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help me deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit my site, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages. Details of how to disable cookies on your own web browser can be found in my Cookies Policy for Afternoon tea or Cream Tea.
The information that you give to me directly on the site (e.g. within comments on blog posts such as your name and email address) is never shared or added to any mailing lists. Information relating to purchases made through this website is stored on my website only. This is to enable me to complete your order, and also prevents you from having to re-enter your details during your next purchase. You may request to have your details removed from my website storage once your purchase is complete by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Be aware that I may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.
Please also note that as my business grows, I may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that I sell some or all of my assets, or my website is acquired by another company, information about my users may be among the transferred assets.
How Do We Store Your Information as a Subscriber?
Your information is stored at the list server that delivers this Site’s newsletters. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage those lists in order to deliver e-mail to those who would like to receive this Site’s newsletters. I take steps to ensure that all Virtual Assistants I use to help me complete tasks are GDPR knowledgeable and compliant in their practices.
All of the newsletters or emails that are sent to you by this Site include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from our newsletters or mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that I send you.
Although it is highly unlikely, this policy may be changed at any time at our discretion. If we should update this policy, we will post the updates to this page on our Website.
In the event of a security breach on this website, I will notify you within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.
In the event of a security breach on any third party server which I use to store your information. I will notify you as soon as I can reasonably do so and I have been notified by the third party.
