This includes Aromaestro’s activities.

How your personal information is protected

Security systems

Aromaestro takes the protection of your personal information very seriously. Your personal information is stored by Aromaestro in limited-access IT systems located in installations where physical security measures are in place. An SSL Security Certificate protects information that is exchanged on our website, which includes information displayed and exchanged during online payments.

Integrity and storage of your personal information

Aromaestro makes it easy for you to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. We retain your personal information for the time required for use as indicated in this privacy policy unless a longer retention period is necessary or required by law. We retain marketing data for 3 years and billing-related information for 6 years.

Consultation, modification and deletion of your personal information

In accordance with our values of transparency and respect for your user rights and in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right, at any given time, to contact Aromaestro in order to:

•           Access your personal information;

•           Find out how this information is being used;

•           Request that errors are corrected;

•           Limit the use of your information;

•           Request that your information is deleted;

•           Request an explanation on how automated decisions are made.


If you would like to verify that your contact details and preferences are correct and up-to-date, log on to your customer or partner account. When it comes to other personal information in our possession, we grant you the access you need to request that any errors in your information are corrected or that your information is deleted if Aromaestro is not obliged to retain it for legal considerations or a legitimate commercial use. We may refuse to process requests that compromise the confidentiality of others, that cannot easily be carried out or for which access is not required under municipal laws.

Our commitment to protect your confidentiality

In order to ensure that your personal information is secure, we make all Aromaestro employees aware of the company guidelines when it comes to confidentiality and security of information and we strictly enforce protection safeguards within the company. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about Aromaestro’s privacy policy or how information is stored or used, or you would like to flag a possible violation of local privacy laws.

We examine every communication that we receive and respond as quickly as possible when deemed appropriate. Aromaestro may update its privacy policy from time to time. When we make significant changes to our policy, we post a notice to that effect on our website along with the updated privacy policy.
