I will only use your contact information and shipping and billing address for the following reasons:

  • For contractual reasons , to communicate with you about your purchase and to complete your order, or to give you details of a quote;
  • For legal reasons (e.g. paying taxes);
  • Where you have given your consent by signing up to my mailing list to receive occasional newsletters by email via Mailerlite with details of new art work, wildlife conservation and animal stories, plus occasional special offers for my followers.

All information is securely stored in password protected accounts that are only accessed by Caroline Skinner Art.

Your contact details will not be shared with anyone else and you can unsubscribe from my mailing list at any time.

What Happens to Your Payment Details

  • For direct payments via online banking, your personal payment details are handled by the banking system and Caroline Skinner Art does not have records of your personal bank details. 
  • Where payments are made by debit or credit card (in person), Caroline Skinner Art uses an iZettle card reader and does not retain your personal payment details.
