Contact forms
In order to submit a message through our contact form, it is required to enter a valid email address (otherwise we won’t be able to reply to your message). The email address that is entered in the contact form will end up in our email inbox. If relevant, contact form messages will be kept for a certain period of time (max. 6 months), for customer service purposes or general follow-up. Email addresses will not be used for marketing purposes.
Surveys, raffles and quizzes
For participating in surveys, raffles and quizzes on our website, it is generally required to enter a valid email address. If we ask for an email address, we will always also explicitly ask whether we could keep that address in our mailing list, in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulation. If permission to keep the address is declined, the address will be deleted as soon as possible, i.e. after we have processed your message or when the relevant raffle or quiz has ended.
