European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Third party web sites
I use a number of third party websites and services to fulfil orders and conduct my business. I have checked that all relevant third parties are fully complaint with new GDPR regulations. These third parties include: Paypal, Stripe, Dropbox, Wix.
As for external websites, I cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from my sites. I highly recommend that you check the policy of each site you visit and contact its owner or operator if you have any concerns or questions.
Transferring your information outside of Europe
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 Dropbox who are fully compliant with GDPR.
