We also have a privacy policy and like to be open and transparent with our customers. This mainly concerns how we handle your data that we receive from you when we have contact, conclude a transaction, or when we have contact. Below you can read the official version, but we are also happy to briefly explain what it entails.

We receive information from you such as email addresses, name and address details and bank details if a transaction takes place.

We do not provide data to other parties, so no data is sold to marketing companies, etc. There are of course parties that also have access to your data when you purchase something from us, for example the bank or Mollie Payments through whom we arrange our transactions. Under point 9 you will find a list of third parties with whom we collaborate.
