Privacy Policy

Funky Doodles (“We” and “Us”) is committed to ensuring that the privacy of those who use this web site is protected. This policy explains how We use the information that We collect about you. If you have any queries concerning your personal information or any questions on our use of the information, please contact Rory Rea here:

When you register with Us, We will need certain information from you to enable Us to provide our services. You will be required to provide information about you and/or your business such as names and addresses used, contact details, and other basic information.

In addition, We may collect other information from you in the course of your use of the web site or your submission of comments and/or requests to Us. The personal information collected is used to enable Us to provide our services to you, and will be stored on a secure server which is password protected. We may, as appropriate, use the personal information to improve our marketing, for administration purposes and/or to provide our services.

In addition, We may use this information to establish a payment mechanism, for statistical purposes, to improve the web site and our services to you, to notify you of products and services which We think may be of interest to you or to confirm that you use our services.

This may entail the disclosure of the personal information by us to selected third parties. The infrastructure of the Internet is global. It is not possible to predict the routes that information sent over the Internet will take.

Therefore, the information you provide may be transmitted via a route that takes it outside your area as it passes between you and us. By using this web site, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information in the manner set out above.

If we change or modify our privacy policy, We shall post these changes on this page.

Our website uses cookies in order to personalise delivery of content based on your experience with our website or social media pages and to track the way in which consumers interact with these sites. We may assign your computer browser a unique random number called a “cookie”. We may also use flash cookies, which are managed as browser add-ons.

Your privacy and security are not compromised when you accept a cookie from our website. A cookie simply contains a large random number which in itself does not contain any personal information and any information you submit in the registration section of the website will not be contained within the cookie data.

Cookies from our server cannot read data from your computer’s hard disc or read cookie files from other websites or write any information to your hard disc. They simply make the website easier for you to use.

The use of cookies is an industry standard, and many major websites use them to provide useful features for their customers. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) Flash cookies can be disabled or the data held deleted by changing your browser add-on settings or by visiting the website of the add-on manufacturer.

If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to receive personalised information on our website. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit

When someone visits our website we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source.

Who else might see my personal information?

Funky Doodles and its service providers will not share your personal information with any other company unless you give us explicit consent to do so. Any links to other websites are for your convenience, and should not be taken as endorsement by Funky Doodles We are not responsible for the content of the linked websites, and therefore we recommend that you check the privacy policy of those websites to which this website may link. We will share your information where required to do so by relevant legislation, or court orders. Should Funky Doodles be acquired by another company, customer information may be deemed a transferable business asset, and as such will transfer to the new owners.

Invisible GIF Images & Link Tracking

These are invisible images used in HTML email communications which allow us to track if the email was opened and read. We use these to monitor the level of interaction with a particular email and the results are used to tailor our communications with you. We may use link tracking within the emails we send you: these links may contain information that allows us to track which links are being clicked on. Aggregated data from this is used to tailor the links provided in our emails. The data obtained from these links do not identify you.

Email communications and opting–out

Funky Doodles may contact you by email after you register with information that we think you will find useful, including announcements about special offers and new products and services. It is our policy to send such emails only to customers who explicitly give us permission to do so. In every such email message, we will also have instructions on how to unsubscribe so that you will not receive any email messages from Funky Doodles in the future if you do not wish to.

Funky Doodles “Email a Friend” emails

Emails supplied through the “Email a friend” section of the site are used only to pass on the named friend’s recommendation. They are not stored in any of our databases, and are not passed on to third parties. Funky Doodles will contact the email recipient once only, on the recommendation of the named friend. By submitting your friend’s name and address you vouch that your friend will be happy to receive such a communication.
