Here at Leslieanne Made It, we take your privacy very seriously. (By we, I mean me, Leslieanne - because it really is just me running this tiny empire of happy little things!)
So although this page has only come about to make sure I'm compliant with regards to the new GDPR I wanted to add a personal note to say that I genuinely do care about your privacy & hope it goes without saying that I wouldn't dream of using your information in any way other than it should be used - with or without the new regulations!
Also, in the interest of transparency (also important to me!), I wanted to be upfront about the fact that what follows is a copy & paste of legal jargon which I'm not entirely au fait with. (Personally, the only cookies I care about have chocolate chips in them!)
What I can tell you confidently, is that when you shop at Leslieanne Made It, your order is processed by Big Cartel, and your payment via PayPal,(I don't ever see your bank or card details!) both of these are secure companies with their own GDPR compliance and security measures in place to keep your data safe.
The only information I ever see myself, is your name, email and postal address details, which I use to complete your order, I don't store those anywhere other than Big Cartel or Paypal and I don't share or sell your information. Ever.
Hopefully, all of that went without saying, but in the interests of crossing the t's and dotting the lowercase i's, here Comes The Full Blown Legal Version:
