I only gather information about individuals in order to provide products and services. These include handwoven items, weaving workshops (which may be booked online at Weaving Space), blog posts and my occasional newsletter with details of forthcoming activities such as Open Studios.
What data do I gather?
I may collect the following information:
- 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 a workshop, for example)
- 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.
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 Weaving Space website
Note that blog post notifications are a service provided by WordPress.com
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). This website and my Weaving Space website are protected with SSL certificates so that your details are kept secure whenever you make a booking or purchase online.

If you decide that you no longer want to receive information from me you can

You can manage your subscription to this and other blogs through your own account at WordPress.com or by clicking the ‘Manage Subscriptions’ link at the bottom of any blog post notification email.
I will never, ever sell your data! And I won’t share your details with anyone else, unless it is required by law.
