We process your personal data in a transparent and secure way. Your personal data is collected for the purposes detailed below.


Managing orders, deliveries and returns

As part of fulfilling our obligations to our clients, we collect and process your personal data in order to manage our business relationship, especially with regards to managing purchases and orders, delivering your products, handling your potential returns and offering services and promotional offers which may be of interest to you. This data helps us to improve your experience of buying online, as referred to below.

Managing the customer relationship/Loyalty programme

We use and store your personal data in order to update our customer files and offer you personalised, tailored services. We offer you the opportunity to join our loyalty programme in order to offer you goods and services which match, as far as possible, your consumption habits and interests.

Communicating with you

We collect and store your personal data in order to communicate with you about your orders, your payments or your complaints to customer service.

Improving your customer experience

We analyse your personal data in order to improve your customer experience. Unless you object, this analysis enables us to offer you innovative products, additional or promotional offers or display advertisements which match, as far as possible, your consumption habits and interests.

Targeted advertising partners

Cadeau d’histoire collects and analyses your data for marketing purposes (profiling), with the help of specialised service providers. In doing so, your data is converted into detailed, pseudonymised profiles (in other words, you cannot be personally identified in these profiles while advertising content is displayed during your internet browsing) to be used by our shops and our business partners with the aim of displaying online advertising campaigns targeting your interests and allowing you to benefit from offers which correspond to your consumption habits.

We may be need to pass on your personal data in the event of legitimate requests by public authorities, particularly to meet requirements regarding national security, the fight against fraud or in accordance with the law.

Fraud prevention and the fright against fraud

The data collected is also used for fraud prevention and the fight against fraud, particularly with bank cards. Cadeau d’histoire reserves the right to check the personal data given by the client when placing an order and to adopt all the measures judged necessary to verify that the person whose account is debited is in fact the person placing the order, in order to avoid any fraudulent payments. Proof of identity or proof of address may be required for this verification.

If there is no positive response from the customer, Cadeau d’histoire reserves the right to cancel the order placed by the customer.

Debt collection

When the total amount of money due is not paid by the customer, it becomes outstanding debt. To this end, we may need to pass on your personal data to our debt collection service provider.

Other cases

In any other cases, you will be informed about the processing that Cadeau d’histoire is planning to do.


We ensure that only authorised persons within Cadeau d’histoire can access your personal data when this access is necessary for our business relationship.

Our service providers and targeted advertising providers can also be recipients of personal data that is strictly necessary for the provision of services that we will have entrusted them with (for example: delivery and return of your products to our warehouse, payment online, targeted promotional campaigns, debt collection, prevention and fight against fraud).


The data is stored in accordance with French legislation and European regulation.

We may need to share personal data with other companies that is necessary for implementing services which you have acquired or subscribed to (examples: home delivery, collection point). A contract is required for operations with a service provider which receives your data in order to ensure the protection of your data and the respect of your rights.

If our service provider acts outside of the European Union, we protect the confidentiality of your personal data and your rights by using the data protection clauses recommended by the European Commission.
