This website and webshop is wix-based. That means that your data is shared with this party. The only time this data is accessed is when technical support is required, and nothing else will happen to your data. Security measures in terms of password safety and SSL are used. Wix also handles payments for this shop.


We use the PayPal platform to handle a (part of) the payments in my webshop. PayPal processes your name, address and residence details and your payment details such as your bank account or credit card number. PayPal has taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data. PayPal reserves the right to use your data to further improve the service and to share (anonymised) data with third parties. All the above-mentioned safeguards with regard to the protection of your personal data also apply to the parts of PayPal’s services for which they engage third parties. PayPal does not store your data for longer than is permitted under the legal terms.


If you place a physical order with us, it is our task and pleasure to have your order delivered to you. We use the services of PostNL for the execution of the deliveries. It is therefore necessary that we share your name, address and residence details with PostNL. PostNL uses this information only for the purpose of executing the agreement. In the event PostNL engages subcontractors, PostNL will also provide your data to these parties.

Google Drive

If you are hiring me for an illustration project, I store my invoices and some information in the cloud.


The accounting program I use is moneybird, which is a tool that allows me to send you invoices in case we work on a project.


This website does not share personal information with third parties that we don’t need to work with to get you your orders + info, nor do we store any information about your visit to this website other than to analyze and optimize your content and reading experience through the use of cookies.

As a dutch citizen you can file a complaint at the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens is you are not happy with the proceedings – however I do urge you to contact me first as I want to help you above all!

In case you want to make a purchase, but dont want to give us your address, this is not possible for physical products. As such we can not fulfill your order if that is the case.

All decisions regarding data protection or analytics in this company are made by me – no automation comes into play whatsoever. That means I will do anything to remove your personal details if you so desire.

Privacy policy for business clients

If you have a contract with me for an illustration or design project, the same privacy policy applies. As you are (probably) well aware, me doing business with you requires for me to know your KVK number, adress and/or email/phone info as this is required for me to incorporate into admin by law. However, I can remove your contact information from my adress book/email adress book if you so desire. Feel free to contact me on for any inquiries regarding this.
