On 25 May 2018, the new European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into effect. These regulations have been introduced to help protect people’s personal data and require all businesses to show how they collect and use that information when, for example, a person shops online or signs up to receive a newsletter.

This privacy notice has been written to explain how I collect and use your personal information and to let you know how you can choose what information I hold about you.

Amanda Brawn Jewellery is run by me, Amanda Brawn (referred to as ‘I’ ‘my’ and ‘me’), as a sole trader. As a sole trader, I am the data controller responsible for your personal information. 

This privacy notice may be updated from time to time, and you should check this page occasionally to make sure that you are happy with the changes. I may also notify you of any changes via email if you have elected to receive these.
