POPI

In the simplest terms, Popi wants you to know what we do with your information. So here it is:

  1.        For obvious reasons, we keep your name, surname, physical address, telephone number and email address. The business model and logistics cannot function without these.
  2.        They are stored on our database indefinitely. You can at any time delete your account which will cause all your data to be removed.
  3.        We do not sell or share data. You are our friends, nobody else’s J
  4.        We do not spam (in fact, we have stopped newsletters more than a year ago). We figured – you know how to find us to see what is cooking.
  5.        We do not re-market. In other words, you won’t see one of our adverts pop-up on your screen, just because you visited our site.
  6.        Finally – you don’t have to give us your info if you’re uncomfortable with it. We can arrange that you buy without an account, where you can do an EFT.
  7.        Please let us know if you have any questions or if we are missing something.
