On which legal grounds do we base the processing of your personal data?

To be lawful, each processing of personal data has to be based on a so called ‘legal ground’ as listed in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We process personal data associated with Sweetaholic based on four legal grounds;

for the performance of a (service) contract with you; or
(3) for compliance with a legal obligation; or
(4) for legitimate interests pursued by us; or
(4) your consent.

Performance of a contract

We use your personal data for processing necessary for performance of the service contract with you. Without this data, we would not be able to fulfil our side of the contract. The processing of orders and service requests falls under this legal ground.

Legal obligation

We are legally obliged to process your personal data in order to comply with fiscal and other legal obligations.

Legitimate interest

We use your personal data for our legitimate interests:

To be able to maintain a lasting relationship with you as a customer and to offer you products and services (e.g. direct marketing).

To be able to detect fraud and security incidents on our website.

To defend ourselves in legal proceedings.

To improve the effectiveness of our service through statistical analysis

We may use personal data in a personal, pseudonymous form to understand how we can develop and improve the service, as well as for reporting purposes, general statistical and analytical purposes. When circumstances make this necessary we may process personal data for fraud investigation or to fulfil legal obligations. Processing personal data for these purposes serves a legitimate business interest of ours.


In those cases where the previous three legal grounds do not apply, we process data with your unambiguous consent.

Note that you can always withdraw your given consent. Under the headline ‘Can you withdraw you given consent later on?’ you can read how to do so.

To whom do we provide your personal data?

We can provide your personal data to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Statement and in so far as permitted by law. Without your consent, we will not provide your personal data to recipients for their own marketing purposes.

Your personal data can be received by the following categories of recipients:

Internal Departments and Group companies

We may share personal data internally with other departments (such as Accounts Receivable) and with other entities of Sweetaholic for the purpose of providing you with information, products and/or services (such as registration and customer support), the development of new products, websites, applications, services, promotions and communication, and to prevent, trace and examine possible illegal activities, infringements of our policies, fraud and/or breaches of our data security.


We may provide your personal data to supervisory authorities such as Tax and Customs Administration, the police and other statutory bodies. We provide your personal data:

To comply with a statutory obligation or court order; or

If this is necessary to prevent, trace or prosecute criminal acts; or

If this is necessary to enforce our policies, or to protect the rights and freedoms of others.

Business service companies (data processors)

We make use of business service companies to help us execute our business. These organisations act only on our instructions and are contractually bound by us not to use your data for their own purposes.

Payment service providers

In certain cases, we may provide your personal data to third parties. We refer specifically to third parties which belong to the Sweetaholic or parties which will be part of the Sweetaholic and/or its legal successor as a result of a restructuring, merger or acquisition.

We may also store elements of your personal data for our own legitimate interest, such as detecting fraud, handling potential disputes, or facilitating our contractual arrangements with third parties such as vendors.

How can you exercise your privacy rights (data subject rights)?

At any desired moment, you can request to access, rectify or erase your personal data or you can object to direct marketing and profiling. In addition to this, you may also have the right of restriction of processing concerning your personal data, the right to object to processing as well as the right to data portability.
