FAQ

General
How are my personal details handled?
When you make a donation, your email address is used once in order to send you a proof of transaction. That's all! We do not share your details with any third parties, nor the artist.
However, if you choose to leave your name and/or a message, we will share that with the artist. This is 100% optional, but gives you the option to let the artist know what their work means to you, that you support them, of tell them what a proud mom you are.
You can find more information on how we process and store your details in our privacy policy.

What's Duitje?
Duitje was founded with the goal of providing a way to support artists, content creators and other creative minds in their work and life. We do this by providing our donation platform, which allows fans and supporters to safely donate a pretty penny, as easily and comfortably as possible.
The word "duitje" is an old Dutch word describing a pretty penny, and symbolises what we stand behind: a small gift with a world of meaning behind it.
