Privacy Policy

Hi, I'm Louise. I'm an artist, millennial, and most importantly, a human. I don't like spam mail, and I'm sure I'm not alone on that. Every email sent from my end is hand-typed by me, and I don't do newsletters. If you wish to subscribe to my work, please follow me on Instagram @Louise.Studios . Instagram has its own Privacy Policy, go check them out if you're interested.

All information collected on this site is either Site Analytics, which I use "Visitor Analytics" for. It will keep track of which pages on my site get the most visits, and will count how many unique visitors I've received. It also has a feature to tell from which countries I get visitors from, but it does not pinpoint locations by any means. For more information, you can read up on "Visitor Analytics" right here.

 

Any real information I have actual access to is collected in the form on the "contact page" (ie, your Name and Email) or on my PayPal Page (Currently Unavailable) which will collect your PayPal Email, and an optional mailing address. There is no need to fill out the mailing address if you are receiving a digital item, however, if I'm mailing something somewhere, I will need a way to send it to you. All billing information goes through PayPal and I will never have direct access to your money accounts. 

All information regarding sales will be saved for tax reasons. If applicable, any emails, invoices or contracts will be printed out and kept on file for between one and thirty years. Again, I have no reason to share any personal information of yours with anyone or anything with the exception of contract breaches. In the event of me catching a contract breach or a for-profit use of my artwork without having attained a contract to use the work, I will need to share any related information with a lawyer.

I use Google's Gmail as my primary email, and as I understand, your contact name and email address will be saved in my contact book automatically by Google. As per your request, you may email me at any time and I will delete your information from my contact book manually. This will not block you from emailing me, but it will delete you from my records. Google saves records of its own, but this is out of my control.
