Privacy Policy for Matt Richards Illustration


Welcome to Matt Richards Illustration. We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

How We Collect and Use Your Information

Cookies and Google Analytics

We use cookies to improve your experience on our site. Cookies are small pieces of data stored on your device. Our website uses Google Analytics to help us understand how our website is used. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our site, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to visiting ours. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our website and services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our site, rather than your name or other identifying information.

Email and Contact Forms

If you choose to subscribe to our mailing list via Mailchimp or contact us directly through our contact form, we collect your email address, and possibly your name, solely for the purpose of responding to your enquiries or sending you our newsletter and other relevant communications. Your personal information is handled with the utmost care and will not be used for any other purposes.

Shop Purchases

For purchases made through our website, we use WooCommerce, an e-commerce platform, which integrates with Stripe as our payment processor. When you make a purchase, we collect information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment details, and any other information related to the purchase. Stripe processes your payment information securely, and we do not store your credit card details on our servers. For more information on how your payment data is handled, please refer to Stripe’s privacy policy.

Under the GDPR, you have the right to access, rectify, or erase your personal data, as well as the right to restrict and object to certain processing of your data. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us using the details provided below.
