AN ATTEMPT AT A JARGON FREE EXPLANATION...
WHO IS COLLECTING THE DATA?
WHAT DATA IS BEING COLLECTED?
I try to make this as explicit as possible. Most obviously I will be collecting your email address and name if you join the mailing list (so I can send you the emails you signed up for). If you don't wish to receive emails any more you can unsubscribe at any time.
I may also need your postal address - if you need me to send you something in the post such as when you buy something.
Interacting with any of my websites means allowing "cookies" onto your computer (you may have heard about these). These little bits of computer code help me understand what you are interested in on the site so I can serve you better and it helps to improve the experience for your visit to the sites. You don't have to use the sites and if you want to contact me avoiding cookies you can contact me another way.
By the nature of you contacting me or buying things from me (for which thank you) I obviously know what you have bought. I do not keep your financial information on file.
WHAT IS THE LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING THE DATA?
It's so I can tell you about and sell you art and comics and stuff. This privacy statement has been updated in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This regulation is there to protect all of us and individuals with rights over our own data and how it is used.
WILL THE DATA BE SHARED WITH ANY THIRD PARTIES?
Nope definitely not. It's only held by me for the purpose of communicating with you about my art and serving you.
HOW WILL THE INFORMATION BE USED?
To tell you about the art I make that I think you might be interested in and the art I sell that you might like to buy.
WHAT AGE DO USERS OF THESE SITES HAVE TO BE?
Users have to be over age 13 to use the sites or sign up to mailing lists. This is in line with current legislation. Most of the books I publish are rated 13 plus.
HOW LONG WILL THE DATA BE STORED FOR?
For as long as you are a customer or wish to remain on my email lists.
WHAT RIGHTS DO YOU HAVE?
You can unsubscribe from lists and ask me to delete any data I hold on you.
