Privacy policy

This page explains how OpenMapChest collects and uses your personal data and the limited conditions under which we disclose this data to third parties.

Personal data we collect

OpenMapChest uses Stripe to handle payment processing for donations.

When you load the donation page, the country of your IP is detected to present a default currency and shipping country.

When you make a donation, you have the option to enter your shipping address if you request an OpenMapChest sticker. This information is only used for sending stickers and is eventually deleted from our systems.

When you make a donation, the billing country of your payment method (e.g. credit card) is used to determine Dutch VAT status and your billing address may be collected by Stripe if they determine it is required to complete the payment.

Billing names and addresses are stored by Stripe and are not used for any other purpose.

With your consent, we may send you periodical newsletters and promotional information via email.
