COOKIE POLICY
Information about our use of cookies
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer (if you consent to us using cookies). Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
We use analytical cookies which enable us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
We also use cookies which allow you to use our site in a way that makes your browsing experience more convenient, for example, by allowing you to store items in an electronic shopping basket between visits. If you register with us or complete our online forms, we will use cookies to remember your details during your current visit, and any future visits provided the cookie was not deleted in the interim.
You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit “http://www.allaboutcookies.org/” www.allaboutcookies.org.
By using our website, you consent to our use of cookies as described above.
INFORMATION COLLECTED
The only personal information we collect is that directly related to your order – i.e name, address and item ordered. All payment transactions are carried out externally, and securely by reputable 3rd party services such as Paypal. Artful Kids has no access to those payment details and does not store them. Please visit paypal.com for details of their privacy policy.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS USED
We may use your information to:
  • Ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
  • Provide you with information, products or services that you request from us.
  • Carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us (e.g fulfilment of orders).
  • Allow you to participate in interactive features of our service if available and when you choose to do so.
  • Notify you if necessary about changes to our service or your order.
Please note that if you click on, or follow, any links from our site to external websites, our privacy policy will no longer apply. Please check the privacy policies of any such external site before submitting any personal data, as we cannot accept any responsibility or liability in relation to them.
DATA STORAGE
All information you provide to us is stored on external secure servers. Any payment transactions are provided by external dedicated service providers and are encrypted using SSL technology. We do not store any payment information.
The data that we collect from you will only be used for the purpose of completing your order, and will not be shared with anyone else, except as is necessary to ensure that your order is delivered promptly – for example courier and delivery providers. Please note, these requirements mean that your information may be transferred to, processed and/or stored at a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and as described in this Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information as long as is necessary to comply with any UK legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.

We take your privacy very seriously, and will take all reasonable steps to protect your personal data, but please be aware that any data which you send to our site is sent at your own risk.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
I use external delivery companies and couriers to deliver your orders. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
With the exception of delivery companies, we will only share your information with third parties in the following circumstances: –
  • to any prospective seller or buyer of all (or part of) our business or assets;
  • If we are required to do so by law, any applicable regulation or to protect the rights, property, or safety of ourselves or others. This may include disclosing to other companies and organisations in connection with fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Other than for the purposes outlined above, we will not share your information with any 3rd parties, either for marketing or for any other purpose.

ACCESS TO INFORMATION 

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While many of these rights apply generally, some rights apply only in certain limited cases. These rights are described below:

  • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting us.
  • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. With the exception of where we are required to store data for legal reasons, we will delete your personal information upon request.
  • Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
  • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
