Privacy Policy

We do all that we can to protect the data that you share with us. If you order a product at our webshop, we’ll make sure that no one else gets to see your information. And if you browse through our site, we’ll keep the cookies for ourselves. In this document, we’ll explain what data we collect, what we do with it and how you can change your preferences.

This privacy policy has been lastly modified on January 12, 2020.



There are two ways that we can collect data: direct and indirect. Direct data comes directly from yourself, like signing up to our newsletter. Indirect data is different, this comes for example from your viewing behaviour on our website.

We may collect the following information:
  • Your email, if you leave it with us.
  • Your name, address and telephone number, if you order something.
  • Purchases made by you.
  • Your browsing behaviour (cookies).
  • Browsing preferences on our website.
What are these cookies?

Chocolate chip cookies are our favourite. But sadly, these are not available on our webshop. Like most websites, Iron Roots uses digital cookies to collect some information. Cookies are small parts of data that get anonymously collected when you browse a website. With that data, our site can ‘remember’ if you were on the website and what you did on the website. They are essential for us to run a smooth website and help you get a better and faster shopping experience.

What information do we use?

The cookies we use to track information about your actions on our website. This can include the pages viewed, products purchased and your journey through the website. This data is anonymous and will never contain personal information like your name, address, telephone number or anything related.

The two types of cookies that may be used are: session cookies, which are deleted after each visit. They are needed if you for example place an item in your basket and then want to check out. Not allowing them might mean you can’t purchase products. The other type is persistent cookies. They for example allow us to display you previously viewed products.

Who manages the cookie jar?
