Terms Of Use

Now it’s time for the information stuff in the form of my Terms Of Use! I’ll try to keep them simple and let’s start with the EU ePrivacy Directive that I share my biscuits with you.

Chocolate digestive or jammie dodger anyone?


My website uses cookies, but only the good kind. If you purchase free downloads my website will likely leave a cookie behind so it recognises you when you return. Of course, if you purchase from me then I’ll have information you give me such as your email address and name.

Like many website owners, I like to know how many people pop in for a visit. I use Google Analytics for this, who tell me lots of things about you but not how you like your tea or coffee! A tracking cookie might tell me your country, your browser and if I understood what I was looking at, how long you stayed.

You can also join my mailing list, handled by Mailchimp, when you make a purchase/download a free file. This is entirely voluntary and, as new designs may not be published on a regular schedule, it’s a great way to find out what’s new. I promise never to sell or rent your email address to anyone else – it’s purely so I can keep in touch with my supporters.


Under the European GDPR regulations you have certain rights and here they are in a nutshell:

  1. The right to be informed
  2. The right of access
  3. The right to rectification
  4. The right to erasure
  5. The right to restrict processing
  6. The right to data portability
  7. The right to object
  8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

There’s only me, I’m only interested in making sure you get your charts and maybe having a chat if we cross paths around the web. If you signed up for the newsletter you can easily unsubscribe at any time. You can also request that I remove your details from the site, but you should be aware that all purchase history and downloads information will be lost.
