This policy applies to any personal data provided to my business. I trade under the name Karen Butler, using Karen Butler Designs or Literally Yarn brands.
I use any data you provide me with, only for the purposes for which it was supplied. I do not share data and keep the minimal amount of data I maintain secure. All personal data I store is only accessible by me, or is accessed by using password protected services such as Ravelry and MailChimp; and only I know the password for these services.

details (email address and first name) are stored by MailChimp and will only be
used for sending out my newsletter with news and subscriber offers. All
newsletters include an unsubscribe option, so you can unsubscribe at any time
to delete your information.

If you contact me
by email, I will have access to your email address so I can reply to you, and
any other information you include. Emails are stored so I have a record if you
contact me again with a related query. I may refer to information you provided
about problems when correcting/
updating knitting patterns, or information I publish elsewhere such as on my website. Your emails will be kept private, and never shared.
You have the right to ask what data I hold, and to request that I correct errors, or delete any which I do not need for legal business reasons.
