My Approach to Marketing
I do not permit third party advertising (or targeted advertising) on my website. If you click on links to my social media pages, or to any third-party website, you may be subject to targeted marketing via that site.
I may collect identity data about you to send you updates on my products or services if you have commissioned me or ordered products from me. Where I have obtained your specific consent I may engage in direct marketing, such as sending you e-mails and/or brochures/other relevant marketing collateral to inform you of my services. I provide these communications on the basis that you have asked to receive these. If you change your mind, you may opt-out at any time via the unsubscribe feature that appears in our e-mails or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will not share with any third party the personal information that I obtain about you for the purposes of marketing unless you have provided your specific consent for me to do so and those third parties have agreed to make no independent or further use of that data and to maintain its confidentiality
My Social Media Pages
This Website contains links to my social media pages on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Behance.
These third-party websites have their own respective privacy policies (which I would advise you to read) for which those sites are solely responsible.
Should you visit those social media pages and choose to follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or Behance, I may receive identity, contact or transaction data from the social media providers, including:
• Address (email and/or postal);

If I do receive any personal information about you from these third party social media sites, I will not process your information for the purposes of direct marketing unless you have provided your consent, or it is otherwise lawful for me to do so (e.g. you have previously commissioned me or bought something from me). If you have opted-in to receive such communications, please see the section above on “My Approach to Marketing”.
I will not share your personal information with any third party for the purpose of marketing unless you have provided your consent for me to do so. If you would like me to delete the personal information that I have received about you from these sites, please email me at email@example.com. If you do not want me to receive further information about you from these sites, you should also contact the sites directly to turn off the ‘follow’ setting.
I do not knowingly use the Website to solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13.
If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided me with information or may be receiving communications from me without consent of a parent or guardian, I ask that this be brought to my immediate attention. I will make it my priority to address this situation and delete information relating to a child as soon as practicable. In such an event, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will take commercially reasonable, appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk that could be encountered if you use my website and services, taking into account the likelihood and severity those risks might pose to the rights and freedoms of my website visitors. In particular, I will take precautions to protect against the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration, and unauthorised disclosure of or access to the personal information transmitted, stored or otherwise processed by me. Please be aware that, while I make the security of my website and your personal information a high priority and devote considerable time and resources to maintain robust IT security, no security system can prevent all security breaches. When you choose to share your personal information with me, you accept that you provide your information at your own risk.
