How and what information is collected?

Personal data may be collected during active correspondence, when necessary. For example, if you send me an email in order to purchase an artwork or commission from me, I may collect necessary data such as your name, contact information and shipping information. I only collect the information if you actively choose to provide it in your email, and if it is necessary to collect in order to fulfill our agreement (such as shipping a purchase or providing you information that you requested).

How do I use the information about you?

If you decide to give me your information, I use it with respect. I may use it to fulfill our agreement, for example to process and ship your order, and to deal with possible returns or similar events concerning your order. If you buy something from me, the necessary information may be shared with our selected payment provider and shipping company, as well as with my authorized accountant (for the required business bookkeeping and taxing purposes). I will not sell or share any of your personal data to unnecessary third parties, or use your information for any other purposes. For example, I will not send newsletters or marketing emails to you, unless you have made an explicit request to receive such emails from me.

About storing your information

If you make a purchase from me, I will store your relevant customer data and our business transaction in my bookkeeping and email archive for up to 10 years, required by legislation. Your information is stored securely, behind locked doors and password protected accounts and devices, and it cannot be accessed by outsiders. Your customer information is not shared with third parties, except for my authorized accounting company, bank service (for the purpose of handling your payment), and (if items are shipped) the shipping company.

Your rights

As the data subject, you have the right to inquire about the stored information of you, or to update or delete your data (when possible). Please contact if you have questions or requests concerning your stored data. I will be obligated to delete your personal data if it is no longer necessary for the purposes of maintaining the service or business relationship. Please note that your personal data cannot always be deleted from the register if its storage is required by legislation (record of financial transactions).
