Collection of personal information
You can access most of the pages on the LITCHY CREATIVE website without giving us your personal information.
However, you may choose to provide us with your personal information on some pages of the website.
For example when you complete an enquiry form or request or subscribe to a newsletter.
When you submit personal information, you consent to our use of the information as set out in these terms and conditions.
Use of personal information
We shall use any personal information you give to us in accordance with these terms and conditions, and with any additional statements appearing on forms used for submitting your personal information. We shall not disclose your personal information to any third parties without obtaining your prior consent unless we are required by law to do so. In particular:
If you submit an enquiry, we shall use your personal information to administer and respond to your enquiry. Your enquiry will be responded to by the appropriate team. We shall securely store the information you supply and the response we provide. We may produce reports on the use of the contact form service to enable us to monitor and develop it. These reports will be based on anonymous data, which means that individuals will not be identified in the reports.
If you request to receive a newsletter, we shall use your personal information to send it to you by email. If at any time you wish to stop receiving it, please reply directly to the email containing the newsletter with ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject of your email. Your details will be removed from our database immediately.
If you contact us regarding the website we shall use your details to reply to you. We try to respond to all feedback where a valid email address is included. If you make a comment or complaint about other aspects of LITCHY CREATIVE services, we may use your details to investigate your comments.

Who we share your data with

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
