LAST UPDATED 24TH MAY, 2018
I am Lilian Withers. I’m an avid card-crafter and an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!
I run In-Person Classes at a local venue and I have a Blog, Facebook and Newsletter which allow me to share my craft with you.
Being an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! also allows me to introduce you to some amazing craft materials that can be purchased by choosing me as your Demonstrator. Orders are placed via Stampin’ Up!’s online shopping portal. Link to my shop
You can order directly via this or, if you live local to me and can collect, you can order directly via myself.
At Craic and Crafting, I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to my online media sites (Facebook/Blog). I do not sell, rent or trade email lists with other businesses or companies for marketing purposes.
You can rest assured that when you supply your personal data to me, it will only be used for the purpose to which you supplied the information, as follows.
- Stampin’ Up! – to fulfil your order
- Facebook, Blog and Newsletter – to supply information on offers and promotions, and to email inspiration, hints, tips and tutorials directly to your inbox. And occasionally to send surveys to determine how best to meet your needs.
Generally speaking, you will receive a weekly email from me, however I may email ad hoc if there is something that I think would be of interest to you ie special offers, promotions or general crafty type news updates.
I truly despise SPAM (in both senses of the word) so I avoid SPAMMING at all costs. I continue to endeavour to segment my email dispatches to ensure that my subscribers receive only the types of mail that they are interested in. To this end I will sometimes send out a market research email to keep updated on what you like/don’t like.
Your privacy is very important to me so I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:
I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it.
I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law.
Personal information is not stored unless it is absolutely necessary, for example; to fulfil an order or send you a catalogue.
It is Craic and Crafting policy to respect your privacy regarding any information collected.
Like most website operators, non-personally-identifying information is collected, of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use this website.
It also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the blog. This is only disclosed as logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to the website choose to interact in ways that require the site to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who comment on the blog are asked to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email, will supply their emails. In each case, information is collected only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. Personally-identifying information is not disclosed other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The site may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to the website. For instance, it may monitor the most popular pages or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam.
Craic and Crafting will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone and only discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a summons/subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when believing, in good faith, that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the site, or the public at large.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case they are stored long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
When someone visits www.craicandcrafting.com , a Third Party Service called Google Analytics is working in the background. This collects standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. Google Analytics will collect data about how people use a website.
Google Analytics Terms of Service prohibits the collection of personally identifiable data such as name, email address, or billing information.
- Time of visit, pages visited, and time spent on each page of the webpages
- Referring site details (such as the URI a user came through to arrive at this site)
- Type of web browser
- Type of operating system (OS)
- Network location and IP address.
All this boring stuff is useful to me in determining which type of content is most popular, thereby allowing me to supply you with the content that you want to see.
Stampin’ Up! respects the privacy of visitors to all the Demonstrator Business Web Sites, and will not collect or retain any of your personal information (e.g., your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address) unless you provide it voluntarily when contacting one of the Independent Demonstrators.
Stampin’ Up! does not sell or otherwise disclose customer names or lists.
Please review the Stampin’ Up! Privacy Statement.
I will contact customers if there is a query or issue with their order to allow me to resolve to the customers satisfaction.
Further to that I may do a follow up contact to ensure that the customer is satisfied that all is in order and to offer support, advice, hints or tips on using the product. And to update on any special offers that would be of interest to them.
You can update your preferences at any time by contacting Lilian: email@example.com or phone 07813 110420.
If you are subscribed to Craic and Crafting’s mailing list, you will have supplied your email address and name. This detail is securely held by a mailing company called AWeber. The information you supplied is held in strict confidence and held only to allow Craic and Crafting to mail you with updates, offers, hints and tips that may be relevant to you.
AWeber will not contact you nor sell or share your information with anyone else.
If you are a subscriber to one of my mailing lists and would no longer like to be contacted there is an unsubscribe option supplied at the bottom of each email sent. Alternatively, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let your wishes be known. I do hope you don’t unsubscribe though, as I would hate to see you go!
You have the right to access your personal information. If you seek access to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, please direct your enquiry to email@example.com and requests will be managed within 30 business days.
AWeber may transfer personal information to companies that help them provide their service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the provisions in their Policy regarding notice and choice and the service agreements with their Clients.
They will retain personal data processed on behalf of their Clients for as long as needed, in order to provide services to the Client. They will retain and use this personal information as necessary to comply with their legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce their agreements.
AWeber uses technologies, such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer their website, tracking users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about the user base as a whole.
If you are a fan of my Facebook Page or Facebook Group, here is some information regarding Facebook’s Privacy Principles.
Facebook was built to bring people closer together. We help you connect with friends and family, discover local events and find groups to join. We recognize that people use Facebook to connect, but not everyone wants to share everything with everyone – including with us. It’s important that you have choices when it comes to how your data is used. These are the principles that guide how we approach privacy at Facebook.
You should be able to make the privacy choices that are right for you. We want to make sure you know where your privacy controls are and how to adjust them. For example, our audience selector tool lets you decide who you share with for every post. We develop controls based on feedback from around the world.
While our Data Policy describes our practices in detail, we go beyond this to give you even more information. For example, we include education and tools in people’s day-to-day use of Facebook – like ad controls in the top right corner of every ad.
We design privacy into Facebook products with guidance from experts in areas like data protection and privacy law, security, interface design, engineering, product management, and public policy. Our privacy team works to build these diverse perspectives into every stage of product development.
We work around the clock to help protect people’s accounts, and we build security into every Facebook product. Our security systems run millions of times per second to help catch threats automatically and remove them before they ever reach you. You can also use our security tools like two-factor authentication to help keep your account even more secure.
You own the information you share on Facebook. This means you decide what you share and who you share it with on Facebook, and you can change your mind. That’s why we give you tools for deleting anything you’ve posted. We remove it from your timeline and from our servers. You can also delete your account whenever you want.
We’re constantly working to develop new controls and design them in ways that explain things to people clearly. We invest in research and work with experts beyond Facebook including designers, developers, privacy professionals and regulators.
In addition to comprehensive privacy reviews, we put products through rigorous data security testing. We also meet with regulators, legislators and privacy experts around the world to get input on our data practices and policies.
