How long do we keep data for?

Emails are cleared from gmail at the end of each month. Order details are kept on shopify and paypal for 6 years for accounting purposes. RoyalMail is cleared at the end of each month.

You have a right to be forgotten

If you wish to be “forgotten” and feel I am unlawfully holding data on you – please contact me – here – and I will inform you of the data I hold, and will delete it*

*note, I am required to keep records of all purchases for 6 years by HMRC, and this falls under “lawful use” and cannot be deleted.
