Personal Information I Collect (and how I use it)
When you place an order with me, contact me, or otherwise use my services, I ask you to provide me with certain information such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information (including the email address associated with PayPal) and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom piece of jewellery or commission, for example), if you contact me directly.
Your personal information is collected primarily for the purpose of fulfilling any orders placed through the Site. I may also use this information to communicate with you; screen my orders for potential risk or fraud; and when in line with the preferences that you have shared with me in order to provide you with information or advertising relating to my products or services.

How I Collect Personal Information
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use and share your information, including:
Those needed to provide my services such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
When you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
Those necessary for the purpose of providing and improving my services, where those are not overridden by your rights and interests.
Sharing Your Personal Information
Information about my customers is integral to my business. I will only ever share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, such as:
I share information with Customer Reviews Ltd as necessary to send an email reminder to my customers to review their purchase.
In order to offer you Klarna’s payment methods, I might in the checkout pass your personal data in the form of contact and order details to Klarna, in order for Klarna to assess whether you qualify for their payment methods and to tailor those payment methods for you. Your personal data transferred is processed in line with Klarna’s own privacy notice.
I engage certain trusted third parties (such as Royal Mail) to perform functions and provide services to my shop. I will share your personal information with these third parties but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
I may collect, use, retain and share your information in order to be in compliance with laws.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights when it comes to your personal information.
You have a right to access and receive a copy of the personal information that I hold about you, contacting me using the information below.
You may also have rights to change, restrict use of, or delete your personal information. Unless in exceptional circumstances, where I am required to store your data for legal reasons, I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
You have a right to object to my processing of some of your information based on your legitimate interests and 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 legitimate grounds to continue using that information such as it being required for legal reasons.
If you reside in the EU, you have a right to complain or raise a concern about my use of your information with your local data protection authority. This is without prejudice to any other rights that you might have.
