Privacy policy

Information I Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as a secure file transfer services (Google Drive, for example). I will use your email address with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 2 calendar years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

What is a digital printable file, and why would I want a digital printable file instead of a physical print?

A digital printable file is a file (JPG or PDF) you can print yourself or have printed. This shop does not sell any physical prints.

Digital printable files = print at your convenience, as many times as you want! No shipping fees, or worrying about anything getting damaged/lost in the mail. Choose where you want to have it printed (very cost effective) - print at a one-hour photo lab & you could potentially have it in your hands within hours of purchasing it! Print any size within the same aspect ratio, on the material you want (paper, poster board, canvas, metal, etc). Also, create photo gifts with your digital prints, add them to photo books, share on social media, etc!

Printing Info & Tips

Print your digital file as many times as you want! Print different sizes (same aspect ratio), add to photo books, create photo gifts, share on social media (#PRINTSbyMAdesign), etc!

►For info on printing your digital file, please see the ABOUT section of my shop:
--- All files are high resolution/high quality. If yours is blurry or you receive a warning message about low resolution, please see my Printing Info.

►Digital files are for personal use only. You are welcome to print it for yourself or as a gift, but you CAN NOT resell it in part or whole - either in a digital or printed format.

Print Quality Information

Prints are High Resolution & High Quality. If you receive a LOW RESOLUTION warning, please see below:
• CUSTOM PRINTS: make sure you DOWNLOAD the file - don’t simply save the preview (the download button will be at the top center of the screen after you click the name of your file).
• My digital prints are high resolution & larger than they need to be in order to print high quality. If your print appears blurry, please go back and make sure you downloaded it correctly.
• If you're given a choice of upload speeds when uploading, NEVER CHOOSE THE FAST OPTION! This will reduce the quality of the print since they are very large. By default, the fast upload option is often selected, so make sure you choose the option for large prints.

Do you have any sales or promotions going on?

Sales run often so keep a look out! Find me on Facebook to catch special promotions and deeper discounts!

►NON-EDITABLE: sent from Etsy via the email address linked to your account (no other address). No changes can/will be made, as you receive exactly what you see in the listing. Access your download link under "Purchases"

Proofs are by REQUEST ONLY

• Proofs must be requested on any custom order that the shop edits.
• Proofs are only sent through Etsy Messages after ALL info is received. The final high-res digital file will be emailed ASAP once the proof is approved.
• Proofing includes minor changes only (es: spelling error). Proofing does NOT include major changes, including, but not limited to: resizing, creating a completely new print, changing any text (not pertaining to the customer's custom info), rearranging or reworking the design, etc.

DIGITAL PRINTABLE FILES ONLY (no physical prints) and info on file types (JPG vs PDF)

When a custom order is completed, a "shipping notification" is sent with a download link (via Google Drive). This notification is to alert you that your order has been completed & emailed. If you have not received the email with your download link, yet you know it was sent, please check your spam folder. Completed orders can be accessed under "Purchases":

JPGs and PDFs are file types. Some print labs only print one type or the other -- most use JPGs, which is why this shop sends JPGs. If you need a PDF, it must be requested when the order is placed. If you need to have a bleed (your print lab will tell you this), this must be requested at the time of the sale.

All sales are final - NO CANCELLATIONS or REFUNDS per the shop policies. >>> Custom orders are deleted from my computer 14 days after they are sent to the customer

Per Etsy's Terms of Use, customers are responsible for reading all Item Descriptions & Shop Policies prior to purchase:


Exchanges *MAY* be possible for CUSTOM orders only, and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Custom orders are deleted from my computer 14 days after they are sent to the customer (to make room for new orders). If an order needs to be edited after 14 days, a new purchase must be made since the design will need to be completely redone. All files are permanently deleted from Google Drive 4 months after they are sent to the customer
