  • Ordering

  • Delivery

  • Return

In addition, we can use your data for 'legitimate interest'. This means that we want to provide all our customers with the best possible personal service. Of course we'll always think about your privacy. This is the case with:

  • Contacting customer service

  • Visiting the website

  • My account

We may also have a legal obligation to use your data, for example when we suspect fraud. And sometimes you have given us permission to use your data, such as when you have signed up for our newsletter.

Who has access to your data?

We only share your data with other parties if this is really necessary for our services. Information can be shared with the following parties: delivery partners, payment service providers, product support and IT service providers. After all, our delivery partner has to deliver your filaments to the right address and it's nice that our support colleagues can provide you with the right help.

Or we work with official model contracts that are specially designed to guarantee your privacy.

How long do we store your data?

We do not store and use your data longer than necessary. When this period has ended your data will be deleted. Or we use your data anonymously, because we need certain data for internal analyses and reports such as the value of your order.

What does this mean in practice? We are obliged to store your data for certain period, when this period has been expired your data will be deleted. These terms are:

  • Inactive customer accounts will be deleted after 7 years. After this period your data will only be used anonymously for internal analyses.

  • If you have subscribed to our newsletter or have given permission to receive personalised messages, we will retain that permission for 5 years. Even if you decide at some point that you no longer wish to receive the newsletter or personalised messages, we will store the request of your withdrawal. We will not keep the e-mails that you receive from us for more than 60 days. So you do not have to worry about receiving the same mail from us more often. After that period we only use your data anonymously, for internal reports.

  • We retain data that we use to prevent fraud for a long time.
