  • In order to comply with a legal obligation;
  • In order to protect your (or another person’s) vital interest(s);
  • In case the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest;
  • If the processing is necessary for the purposes of (our) legitimate interests (or those of a third party).

We will process your personal data for various purposes, including but not limited to:

  • Calling you or sending you an e-mail if this is necessary in order to carry out our services and/or to inform you about/provide you with our products (at your request), including (but not necessary limited to) our books | Legal Basis: ‘necessary for the performance of a contract’ / ‘legitimate interests’.

Change of purpose

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we consider that we need to use it for a different purpose and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for another purpose, we will notify you of this and explain the legal basis that allows us to do so.

Changes to your personal data

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please let us know if any of your personal information changes during your relationship with us.

If you do not provide personal data

You are free to explore our websites without providing any personal information. However, if we need to collect your personal data for the purposes as stated above, and you do not provide us with that data, we may, for example, not be able to perform the contract that we have entered into or are trying to enter into with you (to provide you with our products and/or services).

Links to third parties

Our website may contain links to third party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on these links or activating these links may allow third parties to collect or share information about you. We have no control over these third party websites and are not responsible for their privacy policies. When you leave our website, we recommend that you read the privacy policy of each website you visit.

Sharing your personal data with third parties

In some cases, we need to share your personal data with third parties. For example parties to whom we may sell, transfer or combine parts of our business or assets.

Alternatively, we may seek to acquire or merge with other businesses. If there is a change in our business, then the new owners may use your personal information in the same way as set out in this Privacy Policy. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

Furthermore, for the performance of agreements, we use ‘PayPal’ as a payment service. PayPal receives your name, address and other required (payment) details for the execution of payments. PayPal is responsible for its own processing of your personal data. In this regard, we refer to the privacy statement of PayPal ( (English) & (Dutch)) for more information.

Finally, we may (at some point) share your personal details with the following third parties:

  • Service providers who may act as processors based inside or outside the EU and who provide IT, system administration and other services.
  • Professional advisers who may act as processors, including lawyers, bankers, accountants and insurers based inside or outside the EU who provide advisory, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services.
  • Tax authorities, regulators and other authorities that may act as processors and are based inside or outside the EU or may act outside the EU that may require notification of processing activities in certain circumstances.

Security of your personal data

We take the protection of your data seriously and take appropriate measures to prevent misuse, loss, unauthorized access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorized modification. We do not sell or trade your personal information. If you have the impression that your data is not properly secured or there are indications of misuse, please contact us.

Your legal rights

In certain circumstances you have rights under data protection law in relation to your personal data.

You have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a 'data access request'). This allows you to obtain a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check whether we are processing it lawfully.
  • Request us to correct the personal data we hold about you. This allows you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, although we may need to verify the accuracy of any new data you provide to us.
  • Request us to delete your personal data. This allows you to ask us to delete or remove personal data in the absence of a good reason to continue processing it. You also have the right to request us to erase or remove your personal data if you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), if we may have unlawfully processed your data or if we are required to erase your personal data to comply with the law. However, please note that we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for certain legal reasons which may be notified to you at the time of your request.
  • Object to the processing of your personal data where we rely on and legitimate interest (or that of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that causes you to object to the processing on this ground because you consider that the processing impinges on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object if we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request restriction of the processing of your personal data. This allows you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following circumstances:
    • the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you (for the period enabling us to verify the accuracy of the personal data);
    • if our processing of your personal details is unlawful;
    • If we no longer need the personal data for the processing purposes, but you need the personal data for the establishment, exercise or substantiation of a legal claim;
    • if you have objected to the use of your data but we need to consider whether we have compelling legitimate grounds to use it.
  • To withdraw consent at any time where we rely on consent to process your personal data. Please not that this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing that took place prior to your withdrawal. Furthermore, If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to offer you certain products or services. We will inform you if this is the case when you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the above rights, please contact us by email at

What we may require from you

We may need to request certain information from you to confirm your identity and to ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to people who do not have the right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.


If you have a complaint about our processing of your personal details, please contact us by sending an e-mail or calling us at the phone number indicated above (‘contact information’). You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens (AP), the Dutch supervisory authority for data protection issues. We would, however, appreciate it if we could deal with your concern before you contact the AP.

Deadline for response

We aim to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take longer than one month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. If so, we will notify you and keep you informed.


You do not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is manifestly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

Terms of use

If we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal data, we will securely delete or anonymize the data. If this is not immediately possible, we will hold your data securely and isolate it from further processing until deletion is possible.
