This Privacy Policy describes how I protect and make use of the information you give me when you use my website or do business with me. If you would like your details removed from my system at any time, please contact me. You can also contact me to ask any questions you may have about this policy.

I only gather information about individuals in order to provide products and services. These include handwoven items, weaving workshops (which may be booked online), blog posts and my email newsletter.

What data do I gather?

I may collect the following information:

  • Name
  • Contact details (such as email address, mailing and/or billing address, telephone number)
  • Details of your purchase or workshop booking
  • Occasional survey data (to ascertain your experience of an event or workshop, for example)
  • Anonymised website usage data

Note that I do not gather or hold any financial details such as credit or debit cards. All online payments are taken via PayPal or Stripe.

How do I use your data?

I use your data to deliver products and services relating to handweaving.

Specifically, I may use the data:

  • For my own internal records
  • To provide an item or a workshop you have purchased

  • To contact you in response to a specific enquiry
  • To manage this website and my Cally Booker and Weaving Space websites

Blog comments and my contact form are respectively protected from spam by CleanTalk and reCAPTCHA, which is a Google service. These services each have their own privacy policy.

Storing and deleting your data

All my devices are password protected, and I use encrypted services where required e.g to backup essential business records. I only keep your data for as long as is necessary and then I delete it using file shredding (on my computer) or actual shredding (for paper records).
