I, Bianca State, am happy to have you as a customer and colorist. Along the way from visiting my website to purchasing an item online, your personal data protection plays a very important role. This data protection policy declares which data I collect from you, when I do that and the purpose I do it for, how I share your data when you purchase a product from me or otherwise use my services through my website, my Online Shop on the platform or its related sites and services.

My website contains information about my e-business. My products are offered to you through the external online plattform, where you will find detailed product descriptions and can purchase items online. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. To learn more about the Etsy privacy practices, you may consult the Etsy Privacy Policy.


Personal data is all data which make personal reference to you, such as your name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour. I process your personal data with respect to the applicable data protection regulations, particularly the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) as well as all other pertinent international and national regulations concerning the processing of personal data. I only collect data that are legally or contractually required or necessary for conclusion of contracts or to provide services and honour my contractual obligations. Optional information is marked as such. 

To fulfil an order you place in my Etsy shop, you must provide me with certain information (which you also authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, e-mail address, postal address (not relevant for digital products orders), payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information, if you contact me directly.



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 a 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:

    - Providing and improving my services
      I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services


    - Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use
      I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.


I commit myself to handle your personal data with utmost care and respect. I only share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

- I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my products and services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
- I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as my website hosting platform Wix. I reserve the right to share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services, such as enable you to send a contact form via e-mail.

- If I shall sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, however only to the extent permitted by Swiss law.
- 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.


When you purchase one of my products on Etsy, Etsy encrypts certain transaction information (such as your credit card numbers) using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Etsy follows generally accepted industry standards for the protection of personal information transmitted to them, both during transmission and after reception. Etsy offers optional advanced security settings for members, such as two-step verification to log in to the site, SSL for the entire site, and a login history. You can enable these options in your account settings.


I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my products and services 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 agreements. I generally keep your personal data for up to a year before it is deleted.


I am running this website in Switzerland, which is not part of the EU. Thus, I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in other jurisdictions outside the EU. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.
