The personal information you submit to us will be used to ensure you receive the best service when utilising artist Ruth Macdonald's store and its facilities. The log system is used as a means of optimising the website for user friendliness and functionality.

In order for you, as a customer, to make a purchase of goods at ruthmacdonald.co.uk you must register the following information: name, address, telephone number and email address. This information is kept for the purpose of processing your transaction and delivering goods to the right address.

When gathering this information via our website, we do so only with your consent. We will not disclose information about our customers to third parties except where it is part of providing a service to you - e.g. arranging for a product to be sent to you or processing orders using our payment partner's systems.

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow). Cookies enable the site’s or service provider's systems to recognise your browser and to capture and remember certain information.

All products are charged in British Pounds Sterling and the price of each product is stated exclusive of shipping costs but inclusive of Value Added Tax at the applicable rate and all import taxes.

Product prices and shipping costs are subject to change at any time. Please note prices and charge may also change if the applicable currency exchange rate changes before your order is accepted or the items are subject to markdowns at any time during the selling period. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion. If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated by our currencies, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your credit card company processes the transaction.

Local taxes

Please note that local charges (customs duty, sales tax) can occur, depending on your region and local customs duties. These charges are at your own expense.


We accept payment through Paypal, Google Pay, Shop Pay and all major credit and debit cards (Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express). Only 3D secure transactions are accepted when paying with credit or debit cards. 3D secure systems are based on a payment authentication process where a cardholder making a purchase is verified to be the real cardholder. 3D secure (ie. Verified by Paypal) is a service developed to ensure that transactions can only be made by the card holder. It is up to the card provider (your bank) to confirm your identity when your credit/debit card is used to make purchases over the internet. You will be required to enter a password that you have previously arranged with, or been given by your bank. This password is controlled by your bank through an encrypted and secure server. When confirmed the order will be processed as per usual.

We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

We cannot be held responsible for any currency changes or currency exchange rates any bank may have when exchanging sterling into any other currency.
