HOW DO WE PROTECT THE SECURITY OF PERSONAL DATA?

We will take all reasonably necessary measures to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage method is 100% secure. Although all our resources are aimed at protecting your personal data, we can not guarantee your absolute security; therefore, any transmission you make will be under your responsibility. Once we have received your information, it will be treated under the strictest security procedures and protocols to avoid accesses that are not authorized.   

The information will be stored and processed whenever possible within the EU.

Your information, including personal data, may be transferred and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where data protection laws may differ from those in your jurisdiction.  

If you are outside of Spain and you decide to provide us with information, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to Spain and process it there.  

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your sending of such information represents your acceptance of such transfer.

WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We aim to take reasonable measures to allow you to correct, modify, eliminate or limit the use of your personal data.

If you reside in certain territories, including the European Union, you have several rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply in general, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below:

Access: You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we have about you by contacting us using the contact information below.

In order to maintain the security of your data, we will have to verify your identity before providing you with a copy of the information we keep. The first copy you request will be free. If you require more copies, we could charge you an administrative fee to cover our costs.

Correct, restrict, delete: You may also have the right to change, restrict our use or delete your personal information. In the absence of exceptional circumstances (such as when we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally remove your personal information upon request.

Object: You can object (i) to processing some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving our marketing messages after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate reasons to continue using that information or if it is necessary for legal reasons.

Complaints: If you reside in the European Union and wish to raise a concern about our 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.

What some of our customers have to say

The colors of this pillow are amazing. The red and orange give my living area freshness. Truly fun, different and unique to have this pillow. Recommend buying.

I ordered 5 different designs to mix-and-match in my newly renovated family room and I love them! They arrived on time as specified. At first, I couldn’t decide which designs to choose as I liked them all. The colors are better than I expected and they are rich and vibrant. The fabric is sturdy and soft to the touch but the best part is that the covers are machine washable. Now I want to renovate the rest of the house so I can buy more!

Finally, I found the perfect lampshade. I purchased a lamp from a secondhand store a couple of years ago and then struggled to find a lampshade that both fit and covered the lamp’s long neck. I had tried a few off the shelf options, but none of them worked with the lamp. Carene and Carlos understood what I wanted, and by simply providing them with specific measurements they were able to make a high-quality, stylish lampshade

Wow, what a product. I am always excited to find stores which offer exceptional quality with service to match. I am very happy with my lampshade. It tied the room together. The price is well suited for the product. I wouldn’t pay less for the caliber of this lampshade. If I need a lampshade in the future, I will be returning to this shop for my business.

Could not be happier with the result, the sellers were very reactive and provided me with a digital preview which led to a lamp shade that is the perfect match (fit and design) for my refurbished vintage lamp. Was a bit pricey but have to admit, worth every cent! If I could rate 6 stars, I would!!
