Why do you need my personal data?
We need your personal data for various reasons. For example, we use it for processing your orders. Don’t worry, though, all customer data is stored and processed by us in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act.
Obviously the data is for our use only and we do not sell it on to third parties. We would not want to do that anyway. We only share the personal data you give us with third parties if they need it to process your orders.
We use your personal data for the following purposes:
• Sending your orders;
• Processing your payments;
• Sending our newsletters;
• Phoning or e-mailing if this is necessary for us to carry out our services;
• Informing you about changes to our services or products;
• Offering you the chance to create an account;
• Improving our services;
• Analysing your behaviour on our website, which helps us improve the website and adapt our range of products and services in line with your preferences;
• Monitoring your surfing behaviour on different websites, which enables us to adapt our products and services to your needs.

What personal data do you collect about me, and why?
We collect different types of information about you. Your personal data, such as name, address, and e-mail address, and other information, such as your browsing behaviour on our website, when you logged in, and what device you have used to visit our website.
We need personal data, for example, to ensure that your orders are delivered to your home address. It can also be needed for providing you with an additional service in relation to the purchase of a product, for complying with our guarantee obligations, or for product recalls.
We use other information, for example, to inform you personally about particular products, or for making special offers, personally tailored to your needs.
We also use information for improving our products and services, for example, to help us become even more service-oriented.
Below is an overview of the personal data that we process:

• Other personal data that you actively provide in e-mail or other correspondence and by phone
• Location information
• Data about your activities on our website
• Internet browser and type of device

Do you process special or sensitive personal data?
We make every effort not to gather the data of visitors to the website who are less than 16 years of age, unless they have the permission of their parents our guardian. Although we would like to be able to do so, we are unable to verify whether a visitor to our website is aged under 16. We therefore advise parents to involve themselves in the online activities of their children. This will prevent data about children being collected without their parents’ permission. If you believe that we have collected personal data about a minor without their parents’ permission, please contact us at email@example.com or on +31 (0)46 457 27 97 . We will immediately rectify the situation and delete the information in question.
How long do you keep my personal data?
We keep your data for a long time, but never longer than necessary for carrying out activities, unless the law obliges us to do so.
