Why do you need my information?

We usually need it to process your order, otherwise things would get a bit tricky to manage.

When you purchase something from Marie Murphy Studio online 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 effectively process and ship your order. When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn which browser and operating system you are using. This allows us to display our store in the most user-friendly way.

Email marketing:  With your permission only, Marie Murphy Studio may send you emails about our online store, new products, sales, news and other updates.


Consent

You can say yes or no to marketing, it's totally up to you.

How do you get my consent? Well, you give it to us. When you provide Marie Murphy Studio with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we collect your necessary information with the intention of using it for that specific reason only. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will ask you directly for your expressed consent - for example you would tick an opt in box, which triggers an opt in email. Our opt in box says "Keep me up to date on news and exclusive offers." You can choose to tick this or not.


How do I withdraw my consent?

Just unsubscribe at the bottom of any email.

If after you opt-in to receive marketing emails, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, or for use of your information at anytime by clicking UNSUBSCRIBE at the bottom of our emails or by contacting us at  contact@mariemurphystudio.co.uk You can also write to us at:

Marie Murphy Studio, Studio 7, Level 6 South, New England House, New England Street, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 4GH.


Disclosure

We've got to share your basic info with people who help us to delivery your order. They are all GDPR compliant companies.


If you have not opted in to marketing but have made a purchase or created an account we only share your information with other companies where it is necessary for processing an order.

This is a list of GDPR compliant companies we share your data with for the purposes of processing an order and accounting:

  • Shopify - for Order and Payment Processing
  • Paypal - For Payment Processing
  • Square - For Payment Processing

If you have opted into email marketing we use Mailchimp to store your data and send you marketing emails. They are GDPR compliant and your data is password protected. We also use an application on Mailmunch to collect your information when you sign up via our pop-up windows. Mailmunch is also a GDPR compliant company. If you have found our website via Facebook, we have a cookie registering impressions from Facebook. Please see the Cookies section for this.

We may have to disclose your personal information if we are required to do so by the forces of law (the police for example) or if there is any illegal activity associated with a transaction, or activity which violates our Terms of Service. In this case we would seek legal advice before disclosing your information.

We can't remove your data from Paypal or your bank. Only you can do that.

 

Payment Security

We take your payment details and the security of your data very seriously. Your credit or debit card information is processed by Shopify and is shown to us in a way that we can only see the last 4 digits of the card number. Paypal transactions are handled by Shopify, Paypal and Square are all GDPR compliant companies.

Our website may contain links to other websites, for example a payment gateway such as Paypal or Square. Once you have clicked on one of these links and left our site we do not have any control over that website, and thus cannot accept responsibility for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites, and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.

 

General Security

We're pretty good at security. We've got tricky passwords full of upper and lower case letters and random numbers.


We follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards. Our website is powered by Shopify, which is considered safe.
Your personal and payment data is password protected within Shopify with a double layer of security provided by a unique login code.
