Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
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 Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Luxury invite price list
So you're looking for invites and have no idea how to order through the website, that is mainly because if everyone just places their order when they do, I would not be able to keep up with orders, I have to make sure I can fit every one in and sometimes some months I just can't. So the process is:-
You have a look through my designs either on my website or facebook - www.facebook.com/karasdesigns and then pick out your favourites, every design can be changed to suit you and the colour theme etc.
Then send me over the images via message, again either through here or facebook, and your ideas for them and I will let you know if it is possible and make a proof for you, I will send through proofs back via message.
If you decide you would like to see an invite in person. I can make a sample up and post it out to you. Samples cost the same as what an invite would, to cover the cost of time and materials.
After alterations and then finalising the design and wording. I send over a final proof along with contract, and once that is all signed off I begin creating your order for you and get it posted out.
