If you place an order with us, we use your personal data to handle the order to our best ability. We may then transfer your personal details to our delivery service to have the order delivered to you. We also receive information about your payment from your bank or credit card company.
Therefor we use your name and address, company name, telephone number, billing address, email address, payment details and IP address. We need this because of the contract we conclude with you. We store this information until the order is completed and seven years thereafter (which is the legal storage obligation).

Which cookies does Emerce use?
In the first place, Emerce uses functional cookies. A functional cookie has purely technical functionality. Our website will not function properly without these cookies. This also includes scripts that do not register any personal data, but do count numbers of views.
Emerce uses analytics services to collect statistics about the use and visit of the website. This data is analyzed by the provider of these analytics services (Google Analytics) and the results are provided to Emerce. In this way Emerce gains insight into how the website is used and can use this data to adjust the website and / or its services if necessary. In order to do so, Google Analytics cookies are used.
We have made our analytics services as privacy-friendly as possible. That means that we have taken the following measures to protect your privacy:
– we have concluded a processing agreement with the provider of the analytics service;
– we have agreed with the provider of the analytics service that the data may not be used for other purposes or for other Google services;
– The final octet of the IP-adres has been concealed;
– ‘share data’ has been deactivated.
Tracking cookies are placed to identify the website visitor. These tracking cookies can also be placed from external domain names by other parties. If you choose this, we and third parties will place cookies for advertising purposes. This makes it possible, for example, to make advertisements from us outside this website more relevant to you and to measure the reach thereof. For this we use scripts from third parties such as Facebook and LinkedIn. If you prefer not to do this, make another choice.
A tracking pixel is an electronic file (size normally 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed in an email (for example our newsletter). By using a tracking pixel we can see if an email is being read.
