AU BON REPOS - GABRIEL DEKOCK ET COMPAGNIE SA("we", "our" or "Au Bon Repos") is committed to protecting the privacy of all users of our website, (the "Site").  We invite you to read this privacy policy, which explains how we use and protect your information.  We will be the "controller" of the data you provide to us.




If you have any questions or requests concerning this privacy policy or how we handle your data in general, please contact us using the following contact details:




We collect your personal information when you interact with us or use our services, including when you use our Site to place an order. We also examine how our visitors use our Site to help us improve our services and optimise the customer experience.


We collect information:


  • When you create an account with us or change your account settings;
  • When you place an order and during the ordering process (including payment and delivery of the order);
  • When you contact us directly by e-mail, telephone, letter, message or via the chat function; and
  • When you enter information on browsing or using our Site. 




  • When you visit the Site or place an order through our Site, you are asked to provide information about yourself, including your full name, contact information, shipping address, e-mail address, order details and payment information such as your credit card details.
  • We also collect information about your use of the Site and information about yourself from messages you post on the Site or when you contact us by e-mail, letter, telephone or via the chat function. 
  • We collect technical information about your mobile device or computer, such as the operating system, the type of connection and device you use and the IP address from which you access our Site.




  • We will only process the data we collect about you if we have appropriate legal grounds: if we need to process your information in order to provide you with the service you have requested or to enter into a contract, if we have your consent, if we have a justifiable reason to process your data, or if we are legally required to do so.


  • When we need to process your information to provide you with the service you have requested, or to enter into a contract with you, we use your information to:


    • enable us to provide you with access to relevant parts of the Site;
    • deliver the services you have requested;
    • enable us to receive payment from you; and
    • contact you regarding our services when necessary, in particular to solve a problem you may have with your order;


  • We also process your data when we have a valid reason to do so – for example, customising our service, including the processing of data in order to make the ordering process simpler and faster. We have listed these reasons below:


    • to improve the efficiency and quality of services that our customers might expect from us in the future;
    • to adapt the content we present to you, for example, to ensure that we expose you to the most relevant advertising, based on the requirements we have defined;
    • to allow our customer support team to assist you with any request or complaint in the most efficient way possible;
    • to contact you to obtain your views and feedback concerning our services and to inform you of any significant changes or developments on our Site or concerning our services, including to let you know that our services are now available in a new area, where you have made a request to do so;
    • to analyse your activity on our Site in order to manage, support, improve and develop our business, but also for statistical and analytical purposes and to help us prevent fraud;
    • in order to implement our contractual terms and conditions or any other contract entered into with you;
    • if you send us comments or feedback about the Site and services, we may use such comments and feedback on our Site and in any marketing or advertising material. If appropriate, we will identify you only by your first name and the city in which you live.
    • We also analyse data on your use of our services using your location data to create profiles that are dedicated and tailored to you. This requires that we make certain assumptions about what interests you and may use them, for example, to send you more appropriate marketing communications, or to inform you about special offers or products that we believe may be of interest to you. This activity constitutes profiling. You are the rights holder in this type of processing. Please see the "Your Rights" section below for more information.


  • When we are subject to a legal obligation, we may use your information:


    • to keep a record of your order(s); and
    • to comply with any legal obligations or regulatory requirements to which we are subject.
