We use the following different types of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies

Performance cookies and analytics technologies

These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor or user. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We only use these cookies to improve how our website, applications, and services work.
These cookies allow our websites, applications and services to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features.

When someone visits we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about the products you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, and Wix MailBox to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice and Wix Privacy Notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
When you purchase products from us, we exclusively use Paypal to process the transaction. We don’t have access to any billing information or details from PayPal other than your email address, so that we can contact you, and your home address so that we can post your items. We retain the data on the invoice for 7yrs in accordance with Irish Tax Laws for revenue purposes. Any data you send us for personalised items, such as names, birth dates, ages are deleted 28 days after the transaction has completed. Any hardcopy data received from Wedding and Craft Fairs is shredded within 28 days and prior to that stored in a locked filing cabinet. Any data received through Facebook Messages or emails is deleted within 28 days of non-communication or 28 days after the product has been received by the customer.
Access to your Personal Information
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our office at CBCKDesigns@gmail.com.
Removal and Storage
Hard copies of non-essential data are shredded within 28 days after the transaction is completed. Any data required to be stored for revenue purposes is kept in a locked filing cabinet, in an office with a monitored alarm. All computers and laptops with personal data are firewall and virus protected.
We review this policy yearly, or when legal updates occur. Last updated: 07/05/18
