  • Personalisation: edibo may combine personal data collected through one source (such as a website) with data originating form another source (such as an offline event).

The law stipulates that we may use the information for advertising purposes, market research and to improve our services – but only if you have not exercised your legal right to object to this use of your personal data. The fact alone that the user completes a form with his or her personal information or places an order on this website authorises edibo nv to process this personal data and to use this information for internal company management. ‘Internal company management’ is understood to mean customer administration, order management, deliveries, invoicing, services, solvability monitoring, as well as marketing and personalised publicity. If we use your data for a purpose that legally requires your consent, we will request your explicit consent. It goes without saying that you can withdraw this consent and/or object to other uses of the data at any time. The visitor has the possibility to update the data provided at any time.

edibo may share your personal data with its affiliated companies or subsidiaries for legitimate business goals (such as processing offers, processing orders and complaint handling).


edibo may solicit the services of service providers, representatives or contractors to provide services on behalf of edibo, including ensuring that edibo sites and services are available to you. It is possible that, in providing these services, these external parties may have to access or process your personal data. edibo requires that such external parties, which may be located in a country other than the country in which you have used the edibo site or service, sign a written agreement stating that they comply with all relevant legislation regarding data protection and security requirements with regard to your personal data. If we use/commission a third-party service provider (such as a subcontractor or payment service provider), we will only provide them with the necessary data. They in turn are required to protect your personal data. Your phone number will only be used to return your calls. We require your email address to confirm your order and to communicate with you (such as to send an order confirmation or requested newsletter).


edibo may disclose your personal data if required by law or if edibo determines in good faith that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal procedures or to respond to possible claims. In the event of a full or partial merger with or a full or partial takeover of edibo by another company, the transferee will receive access to the information held by that entity of edibo. This information may contain personal data.



You have the right to opt out of advertising from edibo and can exercise this right by:

(a) Following the instructions in the advertising message concerned.

(b) Contacting us.

Please note that even if you opt out of all advertising, you may still receive administrative communications from edibo, such as order confirmations and communications about your building/payment activities (such as invoices or general communications that are important for the delivery of the product ordered).


In accordance with the Personal Data Processing Act of 08/12/1992, the user has the legal right to view and where necessary correct his or her personal data.
