Each time you voluntarily provide us with information, you agree that you are consenting to our collection, use and disclosure of the information that you provide, and you are consenting to receive emails or otherwise be contacted, in order to fulfill our transactions.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact Forms

The information your provide is sent as email messages and only Elizabeth Petrulis has access. The info is also stored in the database on the hosting, email, or backup servers.

Akismet is enabled on the site in the contact form. The following submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of this site and is emailed directly to This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.

Post and post meta data associated with a user’s comment submission. As Akismet is enabled on the site, the IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.


For the commission and feedback questionnaires we use TYPEFORM, a service by TYPEFORM S.L. The data collected about you and your project is processed by us for the sole purpose of creating your custom heirloom portrait, or to improve our service. Further information on conditions of use and data protection can be found at typeform.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites, including social media platforms, may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We strongly recommend you review the Privacy Policy of each site you visit, or interact with, as we have no control or responsibility over their content or practices.

Who we share your data with

We use Typeform for our questionnaires. While Typeform collects and stores responses they do not manage the information. Rather the data collected about you and your project is processed by us for the sole purpose of creating your custom heirloom portrait or to gather feedback about your experience. Further information on conditions of use and data protection can be found at typeform.

We use PayPal invoices with email. PayPal is a secure service allowing bank balance transfers, major credit cards, or debit cards. You do not need an account to pay by card. Payments are processed on the PayPal operated site and we do not see, nor store, your credit/debit or other financial details. Neither will we ever see your username, email or password if you use a PayPal account. Read the PayPal Privacy Policy.

Your email Newsletter sign-up is hosted in
MailChimp. Email and other customer information, is not shared with any other party and may be deleted from our files upon request.

How long we retain your data

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.

I retain your email sign up and purchase contact information for as long as it is necessary to fulfill business and legal obligations.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us.

Where we send your data

Our site is hosted and backed up in the United States. We use third party services solely to facility our transactions with you and they are obligated not to disclose your information for any other purpose.

Additional information

How we protect your data takes the security of your personal information very seriously. We take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information we collect is secure.
