Who is responsible for the processing of my personal data?
What are the personal data?
Personal data is all data that can be traced back to you as an individual. Just think of your name, telephone number, address, or email address. But also, data such as your IP address or Aedenworld.com customer number are personal data. And other data that is unique to you, such as your aedenworld.com order history or surfing behavior.
From whom do we process personal data, and how do we get this data?
We process the personal data of anyone who has (had) direct or indirect contact with Aedenworld.com, such as (business) customers and contact persons of partners.
We receive the information directly from you when you visit our website, create an account, and enter certain information or when you contact our customer service.
In some cases, we receive your data from others. When someone sends a gift directly to you, we welcome your name and address details. We may also receive information from other parties, but only if you have permitted them to provide certain information to us.
What data do we process about you, what do we use it for, and how long is it stored? Data for processing your order.
If you order something, we need certain information from you to deliver your order and keep you informed about your order. This information is also required for any returns or repairs.
For this, we collect your name, email address, delivery address (es), payment details, and your telephone number.
The data is necessary to execute the agreement you have concluded with us (or with one of our sales partners). By law, we must keep the data related to your order for seven years.
Information in your account.
We store the following information in your account: your name, (delivery and residential / business) address (es), telephone number, email address, date of birth (if you have provided one), payment details, gift certificates, and gift cards.
We also store your order history in your account, including selected delivery options, including the digital items and subscriptions you have taken out.
Also, we store the interests you have specified in your account, namely your wish list, any linked Aedenworld.com apps, and your email and personalization preferences.
Our customer promise is to make our customers' lives more comfortable and more fun. That is why we keep the data in your account as long as you are an active customer with us. If you have not logged in with us for seven years, we will delete all your data. You can also request at any time to have your data deleted from your account.
Information about your contact with customer service.
You can contact customer service 24/7. You can call, email, or chat with us or send us a message via social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. We use the data stored in your account to contact you in response to your question or complaint to us.
We can help you faster next time by saving your data. Therefore, we keep notes about customer contact with our sales partners and us as long as you are an active customer.
A telephone conversation can be recorded for training and analysis purposes. We have a legitimate interest in using these interactions to improve our services. We save the telephone conversation for one month.
When you send us a private message via Instagram or Facebook, the messages will be stored by us for a maximum of 6 months, or shorter if you delete the message yourself earlier.
Improve the shopping experience based on general information and sales statistics
When you view an article on Aedenworld.com, you will also see other papers that we recommend (for example, under the heading "Look further" or "Others also viewed"). These recommendations are based on the article or category you are currently viewing. We know that customers who bought that item were also interested in the other things based on statistics. These recommendations are not personal: anyone considering that article will see the same advice. If you search for a particular duvet cover, everyone will see the same comparable blankets or fitted sheets. Or we show you what other users were looking for based on your search. You can also see this form of improving your shopping experience in a physical store. For example, articles of the same type or that belong together are usually placed together. And the salesperson also knows what is popular and what other customers bought when they came to the store with the same question.
Personalization based on your account details and search, surf, and purchase history at Aedenworld.com.
If we know who you are (you will see your name at the top of the homepage), we can make the store even more personal for you, just like in your favorite physical store. The store assistant knows you and can make good recommendations based on your previous purchases and interests.
Just like that store clerk, we also make recommendations. We look at what you previously searched or bought from us, your wish list, and what interests you showed by looking at specific items in our store. So we do not give the book you just bought as a reading tip. We do this based on your surfing, searching, and purchasing behavior. We will not look back longer than two years. We collect this information based on cookie techniques, your IP address, and the unique number linked to the mobile device you surf.
We do not use this data to show you different prices when you visit Aedenworld.com than to other customers. It is possible that when you call us again, we have adjusted the cost of some products and that prices differ between the Netherlands and Belgium.
We are interested in applying this personalization, namely to make your life easier and our store better. You will find what you are looking for faster and not be bothered with articles and categories that are not relevant to you. If you don't appreciate personalized recommendations, you can turn them off in your account.
You can indicate your preferences with us at various places. For example, you can want to be kept informed about something or put items on your wish list. Even if there is a new release of, for example, a game, you can already sign up for it in advance. You can turn off these preferences yourself at any time.
Data for marketing
If you happen to purchase or willingly give us your email address, you will receive marketing messages by email. These marketing messages are only meant to warn you about our current and next offers and discounts. You can of course decide to unsubscribe from us at any time.
We regularly have offers, special promotions, and news that we want to share with you. We are happy to share it via email. If you have an account with us and have placed one or more orders, we will email you suggestions, information about our items and services based on your purchases, and review requests.

These personal recommendations are based on your purchases and visit history from up to 2 years ago to make the email content more interesting for you. If you prefer not to receive this type of information, you can immediately unsubscribe from newsletters in your account.

We only post reviews with your permission. Because reviews are valuable for a long tome for customers, we keep a review until you ask us to delete it or until the review is deleted by us under the review conditions.
Information for competitions and promotions

We collect this information with your permission. You can find exactly what your data will be used for and how long we keep it in the relevant competition or promotion conditions.
Data to prevent fraud
Nobody is waiting for security incidents and fraud, including us. That is why we use personal data (including IP addresses and search, surfing, and purchasing behavior) to investigate, prevent, and combat unauthorized access and fraud. For this, we can also use the services of external service providers.
Distribution and logistics partners
We work with distribution partners to process your order. These parties receive your customer number, order number, name, and delivery address to ensure that they can process your package correctly.
We also work together with various logistics partners, such as (), (), and (). Our logistics partners receive your name and the delivery address from us. They need this information to deliver your package to the address you have chosen.
Sometimes we have to pass on personal data to the government. This can first occur if individual government institutions need this information to perform their duties, such as the tax authorities. The police or judicial authorities may also need certain information in the event of fraud or abuse. Finally, certain supervisors can gain access to personal data in the context of an investigation.
