We are mindful that privacy is very important for both safeguarding and online protection. We do not store personal information and any data capture we may administer is used for our purpose solely to enhance personal experience and no data or information will be given to a third party.  Following the Data Protection Act 1998 & other applicable laws we hope to maintain high levels of security.

Any data collected will not be shared nor otherwise distributed or sold. This does not disclose any details about specific location, names or personal details outlined in the privacy policy.

Making a purchase/creating an account:
When a customer registers to purchase products through myartisanmarkets.co.uk we ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, and contact details. We do then keep a record of this information. However, as we use only Paypal to collect payments no credit or debit cards details are ever stored on our site. Please refer to Paypal’s terms & conditions for their Privacy Policy. Your email address may be stored for correspondence periodically but at any time you can unsubscribe.
As the purchases made are likely to be through one of our members shops, they too will be able to view your details. They have signed a Privacy Policy outlining our strict rules on usage of details for safeguarding and online protection.

Becoming a member (stall holder):
When a trader registers their details to create a stall page, these details are stored and not passed to a third party. We do only require simple details such as name, email, hometown and no other personal details are held on our databases.
