Artist Statement, Biography, and Ye Old Fine Print (Privacy Policy)

Artist Statement:
“Each of my creations begins with desire; a longing to create art that invites an interaction or a subtle challenge to the existing relationships with the self, the world, and the observer. From my fascination with the connective and subtle spiritual quality of storytelling throughout human history and across cultures, the art of mask making also “spilled out” from my canvases.  I am inspired by exploring the experiences in our lives that bind us together, as a beautifully diverse, and necessarily diverse, world community.  I strive to emphasize our shared aspirations, joys, tensions, triumphs or sadness in times of peace or challenge.  I desire to lovingly hold a mirror up to reveal our undeniable and tragic modern disconnection from the natural world.  Each piece, then, returns to the beginning again but with new desires; the desire to depict, translate or even transform these commonalities into recognizable, accessible, empathetic, and healing, artistic expressions; and perpetually returns as the desire to create that “something” that reaches beyond my own self and yet, still is escorted through my hands and my senses.” -Jennifer Todd

Biography: Jennifer Elizabeth Todd is a lifelong artist who has absorbed formal artistic higher educational experiences at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. She is grateful for the continuous myriad of informal and non-formal learning opportunities available through media, practical work, and life opportunities that cultivate great versatility in her creative expression. Jennifer’s ever-expanding skill set has led to an eclectic compilation of work including, but not limited to: visual works such as paintings, drawings, sculpture, collage, broom making, costume and mask making; and literary works such as short stories, poetry, and prayers. Jennifer is also a qualified chaplain; a public speaker practiced in inclusive and non-violent communication; a small group instructor experienced in working with children, adults, and incarcerated peoples; and a non-denominational ceremonial coordinator. Currently, she lives with her animal companion in the middle of the Nekoosa woods in her home state of Wisconsin, in the United States of America.

Jennifer E. Todd’s Privacy Policy

Jennifer Todd is based in Wisconsin, in the United States and has been selling masks, two dimensional art, props, and costumery on Etsy since 2012 and Society6 since 2021.  She sells mainly to buyers in the United States and Canada, but offers her items for sale world-wide.

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 through Etsy.com and Society6 or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy, and Society6 or any third party services you access through Etsy or Society6. You can reference the Etsy and Society6 Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy and Society6 to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of and private commission, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

  • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
  • when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
  • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
  • as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy, Society6 Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Society 6 Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

  • Etsy and Society6. I share information with Etsy and Society6 as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy, Society6 Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use and Society6 Terms of Use.
  • Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
  • Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
  • Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. 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 your data for the following time period: 4 years but may keep general information on your orders, such as construction details of the piece bought or commissioned, any repair services rendered, and your name (as the guarantee is non-transferrable) indefinitely to have a record of creation and sale and to comply with my Guarantee of Craftsmanship.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US, Europe and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the United States or the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

  • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
  • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
  • Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
  • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
