This page explains how we store and use the information you supply to us.

Podcast

When you subscribe to our podcasts at Substack, your information and usage of their services is subject to their privacyterms and information collection notice

Shop

We use WooCommerce to take payments. When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. 

Your name, email, and address are recorded for payment verification only. We use your shipping address to estimate shipping costs. We also use location and IP address for estimating taxes. For more information on what we track, read our cookie policy.

If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to fill out the checkout for future orders.

We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 5 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.

We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.

If you choose to buy from our Etsy or Gumroad stores, then your privacy is subject to the terms of their service.

Payments

WooCommerce uses Stripe and Paypal to accept payments through their service. This means that we never handle your payment information and that a company with a billion-dollar security system processes your payments. 

Gumroad is a mature and well-established e-commerce service with its own payment processor. You can rest assured that your data will be handled with the utmost integrity.

And of course, Etsy is your favourite artisan outlet with millions of sales annually.

Correspondence

If you choose to contact us, either by writing to us or replying to email from us, we will receive your email address and any information you choose to provide. Apart from this, you will never receive any unsolicited email, unless it is from one of our service providers, like Gumroad.
