Privacy & cookies

You can rest assured that your data are safe with us

You value your privacy – and so do we. We will always handle your data with care, and we only use cookies where they actually improve your website experience.

Privacy

We will only use your personal data for our internal records and the services we provide for you. Not for anything else. This means that we do not pass on your personal details to any third parties, unless you have actually given us your permission. We only ask for the details we really need, and we will not store your data for longer than is strictly necessary. You can view your profile in My Vestide and adapt your data there at any time.

Of course, we do everything necessary to comply with the Dutch Personal Data Protection Act (Wet Bescherming Persoonsgegevens). It makes for pretty complex reading, but if you are interested you can view the Data Protection Act here (link to an (unofficial) English translation). And even though you may not feel like reading it all – it's still good to know it is there.

Disclaimer

We have to mention this: no rights can be derived from anything you read on this website. All images are subject to copyright©. So please, ask us politely if you'd like to use something – we might even say yes.

Cookies

Cookies can get the best of us at times. That's why we are firm believers in moderation. No cookie monsters here!

We only use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. With a few functional cookies, you don't have to fill out the same forms time and again – things like that. Once you have logged in, you'll stay logged in for the duration of your visit. And we will remember your language settings so you won't have to select them again every time you come back. Analytical cookies allow us to identify opportunities for improving our website for you.

And what about marketing cookies? Don’t worry – they're not part of our diet.
