How do we use your personal data?
The purpose of collecting and using your personal information can be divided into the two following categories:
1. There is some personal data that we need to know about you, in order to deliver our service to you, e.g. identification and contact information like your name, your invoice and delivery address or email. We follow the current legislations at all times and therefore register and save relevant personal or business related data, thereby complying with tax and book keeping legislations.
2. There is some personal data that we would like to know about you in order to improve our services, communication and marketing so we can offer you the best and most relevant information and service.
Sharing and storing of personal data
We do not sell, publish or in any other way forward your personal data to others, unless:

– You have given us your active consent for other purposes to do so.
We may also provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you. This type of information may also be shared with professional service providers, such as marketing agencies, advertising partners and website hosts, who help us run our business.
Your personal data will be deleted when it is no longer relevant for the initial purpose for why it was collected, processed and saved.
