Personal Information that I Collect
I collect all of the information I need directly from the person who is enquiring about my products, commissioning a design, or purchasing products. Where you are buying on behalf of someone else, I rely on you to give me accurate information about them, and you confirm that you have permission to share their information with me.
I will ask for your name, address and telephone and email contact detail. If you want me to send your order to another address, I will ask for this too. I will also ask for details about the design you wish to commission.
I collect this information directly from you, either in person at an event, over the phone or via email or messaging services when you contact me through my website or facebook.
