Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information, 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 prints, 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,
• 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 providing
and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you
requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services.

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
• 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.
* * *
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you
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.

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
• 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.
