Data Protection act.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
As this website is hosted in California, the Patriot Act and how it interacts with the DPA creates an issue I feel customers using my website should be made aware of.
The Patriot Act allows US law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, to access any information stored in the US without the processor (the American company) being allowed to disclose that fact to an EEA data controller (Anna Prints).
In the unlikely event that this should occur I would not be aware of the fact your data has been accessed and could not inform you.
If you are worried about this issue please contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
