Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information, 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 fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
- when you have provided your 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 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 Shopify eCommerce rules, Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Shopify eCommerce rules, 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:

Shopify. I share information with Shopify as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under the Shopify eCommerce rules, Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
My service providers take data security seriously and have implemented the following internal policies and security measures to comply with the GDPR:
They hired a Data Protection Officer to join their team
They have updating their Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, and created a Cookie Policy
They have implemented new security measures
They have trained all of their departments about GDPR compliance

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: 7 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.

Network Ireland Online Workshop

MJ can run workshops for adults, children, businesses, schools, teams and clubs, and has been coordinating and facilitating workshops for over 10 years. Below is an example of one of her more popular workshops, but please feel free to contact her in regards to any creative workshop needs you may have.

Example of a Popular Workshop

Harnessing the Power of Creativity to Get Things Done.

Creativity, and drawing in particular, has a power that lists and excel sheets just cannot match. Before we learnt how to read or write, we already knew how to express ourselves through drawing. Over the years, many of us leave drawing aside, and we focus on other skills, such as reading and writing with more proficiency.

But drawing has a power that words alone do not. Drawing an image stirs our imagination, and conjures up visualisations that stick in our minds more easily than lists of words do.

We, however, are more than often stuck with a preconception that we cannot draw. We are not artists! we tell ourselves. Art is an innate talent. Words are for everyone.

But the truth is we can draw. All of us can draw an image representative of what we mean, we use emojis every day, as they convey more than a solitary word. And with simple drawings we can reorganise our brains, our goals, our businesses, to drive us towards our dreams.

This workshop will focus on two drawing exercises.
• The first is designed to clear the mind and help dissipate anxious thoughts.
• The second focuses on the visualisation of ideal dream situations, and explores how through questioning why we want certain things, we can build goals and strategies to directly bring us closer to our dream.

This hands-on workshop can be structured to last between 1 and 2 hours.
