Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://happyscatter.com and is owned by Jennifer Grace Tubbs. Her husband Alexander Tubbs also assists with the general administration of the business.

We may collect certain data from you to assist your use of the website or so that we can process your orders. We want to keep your information safe and only gather what is necessary. Please see below for information on what data we might collect and how it is stored.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Browsing: When you browse our store, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system – for example what country you are from to help with delivery cost estimates.

Purchasing: When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address, so that we can send your order to you, or contact you with any issues.

Payment: We use third party payment processors (Stripe and Paypal), and do not store any of your financial information internally.  Stripe and PayPal have their own respective privacy policies separate from ours.

Contact forms: If you fill out a contact form this will collect your name and email address, so that we are able to assist with your query.

Email marketing: With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.

Data retention

Orders: When you place an order through this website, we will maintain your order information for our records unless you ask us to delete this information. Data will be stored on a password-protected online store, accessed through a password protected PC – situated in a private residence (not accessible by the public).

Comments: When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Gravatar: An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Other information may be stored via cookies, see below for further details.

Cookies

This website uses third party cookies to help us understand our traffic, serve ads, and to help you browse our website – both now and if you return at a later time.  If you turn off cookies on your browser, you should still be able to use the website, but it won’t remember things like the contents of your cart.

Third party cookies used might include:

  • Google Analytics (Helps us to understand where our traffic comes from, and how people interact with our website.)
  • Google Ads (Allows us to track results from ads that we buy, as well as display re-marketing ads to you across the internet.  You can opt out of Google Ads here.)
  • WordPress (Allows you to log in and leave comments. You might opt to save your name and email address for future comments, so this information would be stored in cookies too – for up to one year.)
  • WooCommerce (Manages your cart and the checkout process.) Your data is stored through Woocommerce’s data storage, databases and the general Woocommerce application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Your rights

We do not and will never sell your data. 

If you are a European resident, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. We might be obliged to retain some data for administrative, legal, or security purposes. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.

Links

If you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements. If you click on a link to the Happy Scatter SVGS Etsy store there is a privacy policy for that store available at the bottom of that store home page.

Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website.
