We are happy that you have shown an interest in our website www.vedaroma.com and our webshops:


We diligently monitor the content of our website and our webshops in order to ensure that all information is correct. However, we cannot accept responsibility for external links and the content they contain. The protection of your personal information, which is received and processed during your visit to our website and our webshop, is of upmost importance to us. The protection of your personal information complies with the applicable law. Hereafter, you will find information on how personal information is received during your visit to our website and our webshops and how it is processed.

  • Receipt and processing of personal information

    Each visit to our webshops and each download of information on our webshops is logged. The events are logged in order to maintain our system and for statistical purposes. The following data is logged: the name of the file downloaded, the date and time of contact, the transmitted data, the notice of successful completion of transfer, the web browser used and the domain name of the applicant. The IP-address of the device which applies for connection is also registered.
    Other privacy details are only logged if these are expressly provided by you, for instance, when placing an order or registering an account.

  • Use and transfer of personal information

    Personal information is used for customer service purposes, handling of orders placed and technical purposes.
    Your personal information is only provided to third parties if this is necessary for the handling of the order, for instance the delivery address to the shipping agent. Also, if you give permission beforehand, you information can also be used for the settlement of accounts.

  • Withdraw permission

    You have the right to withdraw permission for the use and processing of personal information at all times. Your personal information will be deleted once you withdraw your permission, once storage of that information is no longer necessary for the relevant use or if this storage is no longer allowed by law.

  • Right to information

    You have the right to information about your personal data that we process.
    Upon written request we will inform you which personal information has been logged by our system.

  • Security clause

    We use our best endeavours and all technical and organisational measures to ensure that we store your personal information safe from unauthorised access by third parties. However, we cannot guarantee that communication by email is at all times safe. We shall comply with all laws and regulations in relation to the storage of data and specifically in relation to privacy.

  • Registration data

    When you register an account with our webshops, we collect and process certain personal data as your registration data. For example, we need your name, address information, telephone number, payment information and your email address to process your order. If you pay using a credit card, we do not collect and store any payment information such as credit card numbers or verification codes. You disclose this information only to the respective payment service provider. One exception with credit card payments is what is known as the pseudo card number: in order for you not to have to enter your credit card information for every payment, a pseudo card number is saved for your account. The pseudo card number only enables payment for products on our website that you order using your customer account. A pseudo card number is not identical to the credit card number. We also delete all your registration data either within 24 months, as soon as you delete your user account with us, or once the statutory retention period expires. You can delete your user account with us by sending an email to customer-service@vedaroma.com with your deletion request. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.

  • Payment via credit card

    When paying via credit card, the payment is processed by an external service provider.

  • Newsletter

    We invite everyone to subscribe to our news on the site https://vedaroma.com/subscribe.html and for our blog posts on the site https://vedaroma.com/wordpress. Subscribers can be added to our newsletter mailing list. Users are entitled to be removed from the newsletter mailing list and can exercise this option at any time. This can be done here or by using the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.
    Newsletter tracking: By subscribing to the newsletter, the user consents to tracking for statistical purposes. This is called a web beacon (or tracking pixel). When delivering the newsletter, the external server can then capture certain data of the receiver, for example at what time it is viewed, the IP address or information about the email programme (client) used. The name of the image file is individualised for each email receiver by attaching a distinct ID. In so doing, the email sender remembers which ID belongs to which email address and, when the image is opened, can then see which newsletter recipient has just opened the email.
    The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a or Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.

  • Contact form

    If you have questions of any kind contact us by e-mail or contact form, give us your consent for the purpose of establishing contact. This requires the specification of a valid e-mail address. This serves for the assignment of the request and the subsequent answering of the same. The specification of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After completing the request you will automatically delete personal data.
