What do we use your information for?
For processing orders and according to the Dutch tax department rules all invoices, be they digital or hardcopy, need to be kept for 7 years.

Your experience stories will only be used online if you have given your special permission, and usually only with your first name. We do not make up experience stories ourselves. They are at most slightly adjusted to increase readability or to correct language errors
We never share your information with third parties!
How do we secure your information?
Our webshop is working via SSL (Secure Socket Layer).
