Following the blog

If you choose to follow this blog you will be sent email updates by WordPress (the website provider) when new content is posted. This is managed directly by WordPress and I do not have access to your data.



When you buy something from me I will hold your address for postage. For accounting purposes, these details may kept for up to seven years in the form of invoices. These are password protected on my computer.  

I take payments via Paypal so I never hold or see your bank or credit card details. 

Ordering via MadebyHandOnline. I receive only your address and name for postage purposes and do not have your email address or any bank details.
