What information do I collect about you?

If you contact me then I may have data such as your name, email address, phone number as well as an address should you buy a product or service from myself. Please note that when you make payments using PayPal (at a craft fair or on online via my shop at Folksy, or a bank transfer) all sensitive financial information is held securely by the processing companies, and they never share this with me. I may also have data if you have signed up voluntarily to receive my newsletter. Website usage information is collected using cookies.


My website is created in WordPress and therefore there are a number of plug-ins that are used within the website. These include: Akismet Anti-Spam, Elementor, Elementor Pro, Meta Tag Manager, Starter Templates, WPForms Lite
