What I collect, and why
When visiting www.emmainks.studio, I'll collect information regarding your device (including your IP address, browser, location, timezone, referrer, search terms etc). This is collected using the Google Analytics service, as well as by Big Cartel. Additionally, as you browse the site I'll track which pages you visit and how you interact with the site. I do this to gain an understanding of how my customers are using the site so that I can improve, correct, or change the site.

How do I use your Personal Information
I define personal information as the information you provide by using this site (i.e for tracking and/or order information). I will use this information in order to fulfil any order placed. This includes: processing payment information, screening for fraud, printing postage, sending you invoices and confirmation emails, following up on issues, and handling returns/refunds. In short, I use this information so that I can send you your items quickly and communicate with you whilst doing so.
I will not add you to any mailing list, unless you explicitly ask to be added.
Who I share your information with
I will only share your information with parties which absolutely require it. This includes Royal Mail/Parcel Force (for postage), Big Cartel (who provide the online shop) and Google Analytics (for tracking site usage, and marketing campaigns).
If requested by law enforcement I may be required to release personal information, which I will do so when there is a legal requirement.
