GDPR and The Leaf Press Gifts

gdpr and the leaf press

You’ve probably seen in the news and from various emails that data protection legislation in EU countries is changing. The General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect on May 25th 2018 so this blog post gives you a bit more information.

Essentially, nothing is changing in the sense that The Leaf Press is (and always has been) very careful to keep your data safe – with passwords, encryption, shredding and lockable storage.

To find out more please read The Leaf Press Gifts Privacy Policy, which has been updated in accordance with GDPR requirements. It’s quite long (and slightly dull!) but it sets out the type of information I collect, why I collect it, how it is stored and your rights under GDPR.

Please be assured that:

  • The Leaf Press only uses your personal information (your name, address, email address, etc.) in order to answer your enquiry, to fulfil your order or to let you know about news and new products which I think may be of interest to you as a previous customer.
  • None of your information is passed to a third party, except where necessary to fulfil your order – e.g. I can’t post your order if I don’t tell Royal Mail your address!
  • I don’t hold any debit or credit card details. All payments are processed via bank transfer, PayPal or Stripe. PayPal and Stripe have their own updated privacy policies which you can find on their websites.

Email newsletter

When you made your purchase you may have consented to receive The Leaf Press newsletter. Alternatively you may have subscribed using the sign-up box on the website. The Leaf Press sends a newsletter every 1-2 months and each newsletter has an unsubscribe option at the bottom of the email which you can click at any time. If, at any time, you don’t wish to receive emails then please don’t hesitate to let me know via the Contact page, or by email to

But it’s not all boring legislation as I now have this pretty new pink box for Post Office receipts!
