Important to Know

If our customers aren’t happy, then we’re not happy! To make sure our customers always have a positive Pottery with Soul experience, we’ve designed a generous, fair and transparent store policy. Read the following sections to find out more about how we provide the best customer experience for our loyal shoppers. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

Unless you tell us not to, we (“Pottery with Soul”) collect the following information about you (our “end user”) and your visits to our website and we use it like this:

  • Your name and email; either because you have signed up to receive updates and offers through our newsletter or because you have made purchase (either way, thank you for your support!).

  • If you have made a purchase you will also be sharing your address and payment information with us so that we can complete your order.

  • Details of the objects you have previously purchased from us so that we can make suggestions to you for other beautiful things we think you may like (this way we can make sure you will be among the first to know when the kiln gods have been kind).

  • Information about your recent visits to www.themindfulpotter.com and how you used the website, so that we can make it as intuitive, simple and enjoyable to use as possible. We may also use this data to analyse broader trends in the usage of the website and help us understand how to improve. We do this using cookies, but only if you give us your consent by opting-in through the cookie banner displayed at the bottom of your screen.
