The Clay Studio is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors. We believe you have the right to privacy on the web. This notice sets out how we will treat your personal information.
1. What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and process the following kinds of personal data:

The Clay Studio website uses ‘cookies’ to help personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise pages, or register with the theclay.studio site or services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of The Clay Studio services or other websites you visit.
