When I talk about 'information', I am only referring to your contact details or images sent for personalised orders.

How I Collect Information
Wix manages our mailing list, and you will only ever end up on this list if you have signed up for our exclusive offers and previews.
When you place an order, either directly through me or via the website, you give me sufficient information about you to enable me to process the order, this can also include images for customised designs.
The website provider we use, Wix, has cookies enabled for this site to make sure your computer (or other device) is recognised when you visit here again.
For personalised items that require images, these are sent by yourself via email to our business access email address.
