Data & Privacy Policy

Here's the serious, legal stuff - it's good practice to have it here, so feel free to ask any questions if you need me to clarify anything (if I am able) (I won't be able).

FAWN prints values your privacy and always aims to demonstrate transparency and fairness in the collection and use of client/personal data. This is our Data & Privacy Policy, in compliance with the GDPR which is effective from 25th May 2018.

What is GDPR?

The GDPR was adopted by the EU Parliament to:

Create consistency within all the member states of the EU as to the rules regarding data protection, implementation of the law, and how the rules are enforced.

Modernise the principles laid out in the 1995 Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC), which was written before the advent of social media, ‘smart’ mobile devices that now can access things like cameras and geo-location information, and the ubiquity of online services and communications.

Reinforce the rights of individuals to control and protect their personal data.

Strengthen the EU internal market, ensuring stronger enforcement of the rules, streamlining international transfers of personal data and setting global data protection standards .

The GDPR applies to:

Organisations located within the EU;
Organisations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to (even for free), or monitor the behaviour of, EU residents; and
Organisations processing and holding personal data of EU residents, regardless of the Organisation's location.

What is personal data?

GDPR defines personal data broadly as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

A Data Controller is an organisation that determines the purposes, conditions, and means of the processing of personal data. FAWN Prints is a Data Controller, for the purposes of operating its craft/design/print business in Dublin.

Privacy Policy At Fawn

How Do I Use the Information I Collect?

I will not collect any information about individuals, except where it is specifically and knowingly provided, for example, at the time of registering for the newsletter or at the time of ordering. When you order, I collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address, delivery address, telephone number. Your credit or debit card and the card’s expiry date are collected by a third party, Stripe. This allows me to process and fulfil your order and to notify you about the status of your order. I will also collect non-transactional data should you enter a competition, request an e-newsletter or contact Fawn via any of the electronic forms. Fawn will NOT share data with any third party. Whe you use the Contact Form via the site, or sign up to the FAWN mailing list, I request your first name and email address ONLY.

Once you have completed all of your payment details, and click “Next” your browser will go into secure mode. Data relating to your order and your personal and payment card details will all pass to our server in an encrypted format, courtesy of Stripe. As soon as you have finished ordering you will exit secure mode. As an additional protection for you, the system is designed so that you cannot place an order until you are safely within secure mode. We recommend that you do not communicate your payment card details to anyone, including me, by e-mail. I cannot be responsible for any losses you may incur in transmitting information to me by internet link or by e-mail. Any such loss shall not be borne either wholly or partly by me, and shall be entirely your responsibility.
