In this privacy and cookie statement you can read what personal data I process, why I do this, how I secure your data and what your rights are.

02. How do I collect your personal data?
In most cases I will collect personal data directly from you. From time to time, I may collect data from outer sources. It is, for example, possible that a friend wants to offer you a custom design tattoo as a gift, which means that I will process your data.
03. Why do I collect your personal data?
Processing of your order
When you place an order I process your personal data, such as your name and address, email, telephone number, delivery- and payment details, personal messages and financial data, to process and deliver your order. For the processing of your order, I use several payment providers. The legal basis for the processing of this type of personal data is the conclusion and execution of agreements.
You can sign up to receive my newsletter. I will only send you my newsletter if you have given me permission to do so or if you’re an existing customer (I have a legitimate commercial interest to send direct marketing to my customers, unless you have indicated that you do not wish to receive my newsletter). Every newsletter also contains an unsubscribe link so that you can easily unsubscribe if you no longer wish to receive my newsletter. Good to know: when you unsubscribe, I will store your information in a list so that I don’t accidentally send you more emails (this is a standard feature of Mailchimp). I use Mailchimp for sending my newsletter. Read here how Mailchimp handles your data.
Dealing with complaints
When you contact me with a question, request or complaint about Discreet Tattoos, I store your message and contact details so that I am able to respond to your message. If the question, request or complaint relates to my services, the legal basis for the processing of this type of personal data is the conclusion and execution of agreements. In all other situations, I process the data on the legal basis of my legitimate interest to be able to respond to your message.

I may have to process your personal data because the law requires me to do so.
04. Third party websites, social media buttons
I have added social media buttons from Instagram and Pinterest to my website and a number of links to third party websites. If you click on a social media button, cookies are being placed. This privacy and cookie statement does not apply to third party websites and links. I cannot guarantee that these third parties will handle your data in a secure manner. I encourage you to read the privacy statements of these third parties, before you click on the button or link. You can read how these platforms handle your privacy in their privacy statements:
05. Storage period of your personal data
Your personal data will be deleted or made anonymous when I no longer need this information for the processing purposes as mentioned in this privacy and cookie statement. How long I keep your personal data, will also depend on legal requirements.
I apply the following retention periods:
- Have you placed an order on my website? Then I will keep your invoice data 7 years, on the basis of the legal fiscal retention period.
- Have you filled in the contact form on my website? Then I will keep your data until you are completely satisfied with my answer to your question or request.
Are you using the contact form for the purpose of entering into an agreement? Then the retention period mentioned above with regard to (online) orders, applies.
- Each cookie placed by my website has its own expiry date. You can read more about it in the “cookies” paragraph.
06. How do I protect your personal data?
I do my best to protect your personal data in the best possible way. That’s why I have implemented a variety of technical and organisational security measures to prevent unauthorized access of your personal data (Transport Layer Security for example). These measures are evaluated on a regular basis, and updated when necessary.
Please note that you are responsible for the security of your (computer) equipment and your own internet connection and that these are never 100% secure. The transmission of personal data over the internet is therefore at your own risk.
07. Do I share your data with third parties?
Discreet Tattoos will share your data with a number of parties where permitted by law. I may share your personal data with third parties when this is necessary for the execution of the agreement, you have given your consent, I have a legitimate
interest or the law obliges me to do so.
I may share your personal data with the following (categories of) recipients:
- Web hosting (mijndomein)
- Payment service providers
- Webshop software (Woocommerce)
- Accountant and accounting software (Moneybird)
- Suppliers of cookies
- Other IT-suppliers and service providers
You should be aware of the fact that your personal data may be transferred or stored outside of Europe. I will only do this if there is an adequate level of protection for the processing of your data. For example, a model clause agreement.
Update on declaring the EU-US Privacy Shield invalid: I am familiar with the ruling of the European Court of Justice (Schrems-II). Discreet Tattoos uses several non-Europeas service providers, and is currently looking into the implications of the ruling in this respect. In addition, reporting on this is, of course, being closely monitored. Any questions? Please feel free to contact me by using the contact details listed below (“About Discreet Tattoos”).

To appeal your rights, please contact me through email (email@example.com) or in writing. You can also fill in the contact form on my website. Please note however, that in some circumstances I may ask you to provide additional information, for the purpose of verifying your identity.
09. Withdrawing your consent
I use both first party cookies and third party cookies.
