What is personal data and why is it collected?
Your Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
This isn’t the sort of website that invites comments and discussions. Not having to register to leave comments or upload pictures, means that you don’t need to share your PII. (PII are things like your full name, street address, phone number, email, age, D.O.B., credit-card number, etc.) I find that life is too short to have to deal with trolls, malcontents and spammers. Face the light instead of the darkness! I would rather be working on my latest art project.
The contact forms on this website provides a fast and easy way for you to communicate directly with me. Providing your name and email address allows for responding to your messages. Be assured that it is policy to keep your message (including any PII), no longer than (3) months before deleting it. Your information will not be used for marketing purposes, nor will your information be shared with any 3rd parties unless it is needed for order fulfillment. At no time is your PII stored on our web-servers, which means that a hacker could not ‘break-in’ and steal your information
Another way your data is protected is by using the most up-to-date https encryption technology to keep your information from being intercepted by hackers.
