What personal data we collect and why we collect it



When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Additional information

When you download a digital pattern you will, in most cases, have the option of clicking a link to add it to your Ravelry library. We pass on just enough information to connect your purchase. 

When you download a pattern from YSK store on Ravelry.com we receive a copy of your download from Ravelry via email. We only use this data to acknowledge the download. If there is a pattern update we use Ravelry’s update system which automatically sends an email notification or Ravelry message. 

We send a monthly newsletter to subscribers via MailChimp. You can read MailChimp’s privacy policy here. [https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/] We have access to the details you provide when you subscribe: your name and email address.

If you wish to have your data deleted from MailChimp you can either contact them directly (this is a good option if you are subscribed to several newsletters) or contact us and we will pass your request on. You can update your details or unsubscribe at any time by following the link to update your profile in the footer of each newsletter. 

Our MailChimp, Facebook, WordPress and Instagram accounts are connected. This automatically tracks analytics information and gives us the option of personalising newsletter or social media marketing content so you find out about products you’re likely to be most interested in. We will only use this data to personalise newsletter content with your explicit permission.


When you click on links on our website, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
