Who we share your data with

We do not sell or otherwise disclose your personal data to any third parties. Ever.

How long we retain your data

We will keep the data you provide via the contact form until you request deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those about mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. This privacy policy is based on the provisions in the Netherlands Personal Data Protection Act that regulates what may and may not be done with your personal details. 

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

What data breach procedures we have in place

First, reach out to us, we’ll be happy to help. Anyone who believes his or her personal data have been processed in a way that is not in accordance with the GDPR, can file a privacy complaint with the DPA (in Dutch).
