Your privacy is very important to me. I will treat your personal information that you have provided to me at all times with confidentiality and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). On this page you can read my Privacy Statement, which informs you on what personal data is collected and why, how it is collected and used, and how it will be stored.
What personal information do we collect and why?
On my website I will collect personal information that you give to me and also data that is automatically collected. For instance, when you sign up for my blog or newsletter, or any other form on my website, you may be asked to enter your first and last name, and your email address. This way I can reach you through the applicable channel. When you purchase a product on this website, you will be asked to enter your first and last name, your address, and your email address. This is necessary so that the Dutch government knows you are a real person and what your residence is. When you purchase a product, you will check out using either PayPal or Mollie. These are both secure payment systems. They are necessary to make payments and invoicing possible via the internet. Your payment details are sent directly to these services from our secure payment environment, and that information is not shared with anyone other than the service and me.
