Your privacy is respected at FeltHappiness

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services. Of course, privacy is respected in all interactions with readers and customers of FeltHappiness.

While the website collects ‘cookies’ (I have no idea how), it does not take any other data from readers.

When visitors leave comments on my blog, the website collects the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help in spam detection. Due to a high volume of spam, visitors’ comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.

Subscribers to my email newsletter, The Jottings, do share their email, name and whether they are interested in workshops. I promise that this private information will not be shared nor sold.  All of this personal information is kept on a secure server on MailChimp.

All financial interactions of hat selling occur on my shop on Etsy or at local craft fairs in the Pittsburgh area. I do not have access to your financial data which is managed by Etsy online and Square for in-person-events.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep customer data for 7 years. Email subscriber data is only kept for current readers. If needed, you may unsubscribe to my newsletter at any time. There is an option to unsubscribe at the bottom of each newsletter.

Contact Details

For the purposes of data protection law, if you need to contact me, I can be reached at juliane at or via postal mail at 709 Westwood DR, Gibsonia, PA 15044.


Thank you for reading this privacy policy.
