Under no circumstances will I be liable for any loss or damage (including without limitation indirect or consequential loss or damage) or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of or in connection with the use of this website.

I am not responsible for any offence taken to mistakes in my English. My first language is Dutch and I try to honour the rules of (UK) English grammar as well as I possibly can.

Although I try and keep this website running 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, access may be temporarily suspended due to technical updates or issues beyond my control. I will always try to get the blog back online as soon as I can.

Reserve Rights

I, Esther de Beer, reserve the right to change the focus of this blog. I reserve the right to turn this blog into a Rick Astley tribute website or to shut it down, sell it, change the terms of use at my own discretion. I also reserve the right to remove comments on Your Dutch Guide, without notice, when these comments are spammy, offensive or of a racist nature.

Privacy statement

I will not send you any spam and won’t be selling your personal data to Third Parties. I won’t keep your personal data longer than needed (unless this is part of our agreement or because I am legally obliged to do this) and I won’t share your personal data with others.

Collecting data
If you contact Your Dutch Guide, your name and e-mail address will be (temporarily) saved. I will only use this data to contact you, for example, to reply to the question you have asked me or provide you with the information you requested.

Your Dutch Guide uses cookies. For example: when you leave a comment, your name and e-mail address (and possibly your website if you fill out this box) will be remembered. This way, you won’t have to fill the boxes again when you visit my website again. If you’d rather my website didn’t remember this data, please adjust the settings of your browser.

Google Analytics also uses cookies. I use Google Analytics to keep (anonymous!) track of the visits to this website. I purely use Google Analytics for information: I’d like to know which articles are well read an which articles aren’t, so I can keep improving my website accordingly. I look at the figures from Google Analytics in a general way, definitely not per person. Read the privacy statement by Google Analytics.

See, adjust or remove data
Of course, you have the right to see, change or remove the data that I have (temporarily) saved. Please contact me through info (at) yourdutchguide (dot) com with your request. To be sure that it’s actually you requesting the information, I may ask for a copy of your ID-card or passport. To protect your privacy, please ‘black out’ the ID-card’s number, your social security number and photo before e-mailing your copy.

Data security
I take the protection of data very seriously and take care every day to protect the data from abuse, loss, access by unauthorized persons, unwanted publication or unauthorized changes. If you have any questions about this, please contact me.

Advertisers and sponsors

I am not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues, not Your Dutch Guide. Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. You are in no way obliged to like or dislike what I like or dislike.

To help the website expand and cover costs of running the site, some advertising and affiliate links are run on my website. Affiliate links earn me a small commission (trust me, very small) on any purchases made when visiting these links. You can trust me that I will never work for a party that I don’t trust or is ill-fitted to be a partner of Your Dutch Guide. The nature of any cooperation is always mentioned.

Letters to the Editor

Any letters, e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter, or questions written directly to me may be used to share with my blogging audience unless specifically requested otherwise. I also love using any of your feedback in future blog posts, newsletters or social media posts.
