Terms and Conditions 2023

All Julie-Ann’s original artwork, illustrations, photographs, designs, spoken and written work including her own quotes, are copy right to ©Julie-Ann Blackmore 2004, or from the date of the specific work’s initial creation and as such can not be reproduced without her permission.

Where ever possible I, Julie-Ann Blackmore, through my Limited Company offer quantity and quality, believing in not missing out on one to have the other. My ethos is always to offer value for my customers money.

I prefer to price my products and services using the strategy of supply and demand. Anything in small supply will be charged accordingly, as will anything in big supply, to be available for as many people as possible.

Every effort is made to provide the customers of How To Be You Ltd with accurate and empowering knowledge and quality products and services. I wish to remind my customers that their minds, bodies, lives and finances are their own responsibility and as such they are solely accountable for any decisions or actions that they take. I do not make the decisions for them and have no accountability for the outcome of any guidance written or verbally passed on.

I respect everyone’s privacy, and only use my own mind to access any appropriate knowledge, about someone else, that will empower them by enabling me to offer them the best service.

It is your right as a consumer to cancel the purchase of a piece of art for up to 14 days after the order and payment has been taken. You have a further 14 days from receiving the original art piece to return it if you change your mind. Obviously, I would prefer that you are very happy with your purchase and feel you made the right decision in buying it in the first place. However, if this is not the case, and as long as it has not been damaged or tampered with in anyway, I will be happy to fully refund the amount of the art piece. I will arrange a convenient time, and date, or the fee for postage and packaging, for the  courier to collect it from you free of charge.

If the art is damaged in any way in transit to you then I will offer you a full refund, and the cost of any postage and packaging, or arrange for the courier to collect it free of charge.

I do not agree with data sharing or unnecessary long time storage of my customers data. The bare minimum of details are taken, and only used appropriately, to provide the best service to the customer, and only stored for as long as is appropriate.

Confidentiality is a priority, and no customers needs, or details, will be discussed outside of the business team.

I employ or outsource specific jobs to a team of professionals, based on their quality of work. I ensure, to the best of my knowledge, that my suppliers of raw materials are reputable and ethical.

Data Protection Policy 2023

  • The Ltd company How To Be You Ltd will not store any data on customers, or event participants, for any longer than is necessary, to provide the service or product that they are buying.
  • The data needed is the customer’s name, phone number, email, address and payment details; debit or credit card.
  • Any data received will be used appropriately for the transaction, including writing an invoice of receipt, after the payment has been received.
  • Customers will need to give of their own free will their name, a contactable phone number, their email and their payment details. Again these will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary.
  • All customers have the right to withdraw their consent to have their data stored at any time.

Privacy Policy 2023

  • Everyone has the right to object to giving their data on the first point of communication.
  • Any information including personal or professional details will not be shared without discernment as to whether it is completely necessary and only then on a need to know basis. 
  • Occasionally, in my written and verbal work, I use past real life professional experiences, that may, or may not have involved others. When I do this I will always change the person or person’s names, unless they have given their own permission for me to use their real identity. Otherwise, I always ensure that they are not recognizable from the information given. At any time an ex-client is free to ask me not to use their specific experiences in my work, and their wish will be met.

If there is cause for complaint, please email direct via the Contact Page and all grievances will be dealt with individually, in the most appropriate manner.
