What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form. Also collected is the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

In order to fulfill an order (or if you purchase through my Etsy shop) you will need to provide certain information. Your name, email address, delivery address, details of your order for instance. You may also provide me with personal information (i.e. for a bespoke order)

When you use the contact form (or Etsy shop) to get in touch, you are initiating an email to chris@amosartworks.co.uk. The content of these emails and subsequent communications are delivered via SSL (an encrypted link between a web server and a browser). This is stored with my third party internet host Penguin-UK  located on cpanel-services servers.

Why I need this information and how I use it

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

  • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill 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 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with Amosartworks Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Amosartworks and Terms of Use.
