What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments or reviews on the site we collect the data shown in the comments/review form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment or review, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment or review, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Similarly if you sign up for notifications and/or the newsletter, we also store the personal information you provide at sign up. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments or reviews, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Contact Information

If you have any queries or concerns about what information we store about you, or how it is stored, please contact us and we will do our best to reassure you.

Additional information

Storing Payment Methods

Within the My Account section (and at checkout) there is the option to store your payment details for future purchases. This data is held securely by Stripe on their secure servers not by I Love Mixed Media.

How we protect your data

We store only the information you provide to us (typically name, address, email, telephone number and order history). We do not see, handle, process or store any financially sensitive information or card details. Such processing is done directly on the site(s) of our payment service provider(s).

The data we do store is protected by strong passwords and by the fact that our website and admin console are served only over secure encrypted connections.

What third parties we receive data from

When you make payment through our site the payment processor provides us with necessary information to track the payment. Usually the transaction ID. None of your financial data or card details are ever passed to us.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We do not do any automated decision making and/or profiling with your data, but we may from time to time, and at our sole discretion, use customer purchase histories to provide targeted discounts to loyal customers.
