Privacy Policy

Inappropriate Ink cares about your privacy. Under the new GDPR law, which was introduced on May 25, 2018, Inappropriate Ink has taken steps to ensure that your personal information is secure. 


Information I collect

To fulfill your order, you provide Inappropriate Ink with certain information that you authorized Squarespace to share with me. This includes you name, email address, postal information, limited payment information, and the details of the product(s) that you are ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information for custom orders, among other things, by contacting me directly. 


Why we need your information and how we use it

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information including the following:

  • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to settle disputes, or to provide customer support
  • when you have provided affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list
  • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about you 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 squarespace policies and terms of use. 

information sharing and disclosure

Information about our customers are important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons, and in limited circumstances:

  • Squarespace - We share your information with Squarespace as necessary to provide you with our services and to comply with the squarespace policies and terms of use
  • Service Providers - We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and to provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
  • Business Transfers - If we sell or merge our business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction.
  • Compliance With Laws - We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to (a) respond to legal process or to government requests, (b) enforce our 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 our customers, or others.

data retention

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and as describes in our privacy policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.


transfers of personal information outside of the eu

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on EU-US Privacy Shield and SSL Security to encrypt and transfer securely any data from the EU, as that is what our host uses.


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 will 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 our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances, for example where we am required to store data for legal reasons, we will generally delete your personal information upon request.
  • Object - You can object to (1) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (2) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your expressed consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we 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 our 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.
