Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I do not hold any information for newsletters or mailing lists as I do not use this sort of marketing.

A) As needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
B) 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
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
B) To post your items I engage certain trusted third parties eg the post office and other people who post your items for me. I will share your personal information such as your address with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Legal collection of information
I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Is the item suitable for children?
WARNING: Shop gifts usually contain small items that could be pulled off by children. Some parts of cards may be made from metal, beads, buttons, foam, ribbon, plastic resins and paints/art mediums. They may become a choking or sharps hazard. Do not leave with any child under age 6.
Because of this, cards, gift card holders and pictures are not toys and the information is provided to help you match the age of the person to the suitability of handling these gifts.
How quick do you post items?
Usually the same day if I receive the order by 3pm – but may be up to 7 working days (or 7 days for personalised orders).
Each items states whether first or second class or you can select when ordering directly.
I post via Royal Mail. Please note that posting is also called shipping time.
International shipping details
Gift card holders and greeting cards would be sent by International Royal Mail for a Large Letter.
The buyer accepts responsibility for paying import taxes/duties. Items will be sent as none gifts (i.e ‘other’) for tax purposes when postage is declared to send from the UK.
Delivery is usually within ten days of posting but I can’t guarantee this due to circumstances beyond my control. Occasionally it takes 2-3 weeks to receive gifts.
I can send:
* up to 4 gift envelopes or
* up to 4 cards
in one parcel. If you would like to order more than this, please ask for me to get a postage quote.
Please provide your full address and full zip code or equivalent to help with smoother carriage.
What if I need to order more than one?
Please ask about larger quantities for any gift card/invitation envelope in my shop.
Orders are shipped from the U.K. so please add 3 weeks to the delivery time if you are outside the U.K.
Please also check the ‘make time’ in item descriptions.
All custom orders are not refundable and no guarantee can be made of arrival time as this is in the hands of the postal service.
Use of glitter and card – environment issues
Do you use glitter on products?
Most paper and card that is purchased is pre glittered with ‘no shed glitter’. This means the glitter will not come off as it is mixed and sealed with a glaze. It can not, therefore blow away or fall off to get into our oceans via wind or water supply.
Use of paper and card
Approximately 70% of my paper materials are from FSC certificated companies.
Products made with wood and paper from FSC forests means that you won’t be harming the world’s forests.
We re-use packaging to send your gifts.
Custom and personalised orders
For your orders which include choosing a design, colour or personalised words/dates:
1) Part of the personalisation is about you choosing a colour / design or words for your item. I will contact you within 24 hours to find out your preferences. Without these I can not start your order. If I don’t receive these details, the order will be cancelled after 2 weeks.
2) Please look out for e-mails via Etsy to confirm your choice or look at design possibilities etc.
3) I aim to keep you informed at every stage so I can get your order just right.
4) Do check out the make times and add this to delivery time to ensure it can be done for the time you need it.
5) These are for personal gifts and no part or whole can be resold.
