Privacy statement – Customers and website visitors

(single transaction)

This privacy statement applies to the processing of personal data of customers and website visitors by Twise Victory Publishing (hereinafter referred to as ‘Twise’). Twise takes its responsibility for the protection of your personal data very seriously, and has therefore drawn up this privacy notice.

The purpose of this privacy statement is to be transparent about the way in which Twise collects, uses and protects your personal data. It also explains how we comply with privacy legislation, such as the GDPR. Please read this statement carefully to understand how we handle your personal data. 

We use personal data only for the purposes for which it was collected by us. For your information, we add this privacy statement to licence agreements and other agreements that we conclude with you (e.g. when you download an app) and have placed this privacy statement on our website.

What is personal data?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) states that personal data is information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This means that the individual concerned can either directly or indirectly be identified from that information. 

We do not process any health data. All information about your health and delivery is only stored locally on your device. Depending on the answers you give in the app, the app uses an algorithm to determine which content is relevant to you. We do not have access to the information you enter into the app – not even in the event of an outage.

About us

Twise Victory Publishing B.V., trading under the names of Oei, ik Groei! and The Wonder Weeks, with registered office at St. Walburgisplein 45 in (6811BZ) Arnhem, Netherlands (Chamber of Commerce no.: 58223169) is the data controller within the meaning of the GDPR (in other words, responsible for the data we receive from you).

For what purposes do we process personal data?

We process your personal data only for appropriate purposes defined in advance. Below you will find more information about various purposes.

1. To create a customer account and access to “The Wonder Weeks – Back To You” app

What does this purpose entail?

If you have bought or received the Back To You book, the unique code will give you free access to The Wonder Weeks – Back To You app, including unique content. For this, you need to create an account using your email address and a password. The legal basis for this is the performance of the contract you have conclude with us by agreeing to the terms of use of the app (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR).

If you are using the premium version of The Wonder Weeks – Back To You app, you do not need to create an account with us, but you do need an Apple or Google account. We do not receive any payment data or other data about you from Apple or Google. Furthermore, we do not have access to your account details at Apple or Google. In the context of our relationship with Apple or Google, we merely receive a unique identifier for administrative purposes.

2. For product improvement of the Oei, ik Groei!, ‘The Wonder Weeks’ and ‘The Wonder Weeks – Back To You’ apps

What does this purpose entail?

As soon as you download, install and use our app, we process technical / analytical data on the use of the app. The data on the use of our apps is not linked to any individual user. We keep track, at an aggregate level, of how often certain buttons are pressed, what content is read and whether the content matches the baby’s development. This enables us to track which content is frequently viewed and used, and to continuously improve our apps and their content to better meet the needs of our users. 

All data you enter, for example in the diary, or your baby’s name, date of birth and gender, is only stored locally on your device. We never have access to this data, not even in the event of an error or malfunction, and we do not store this data. In short, we do not process any personal data for this purpose.

3. For customer service: handling of questions/comments/complaints

What does this purpose entail?
If you have any questions, comments or complaints, please contact our customer service. To be able to answer your questions we need certain information. The data we need depends on the question, comment or complaint. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in the efficient processing of questions, comments and complaints (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

What personal data do we process for this purpose?

Name, email address, phone number, app version, iOS/Android version, device version, app language, country location, time zone and any other data you share with us during your contact with our customer service. In exceptional cases, we will need your date of birth and bank account number (in case we need to refund you).

We use various applications to process certain data. To ensure your privacy, we choose our suppliers carefully, and the applications are subject to strict rules. Most of the data is stored within the European Union.

For the data that is processed outside the EU, we only work with parties that offer sufficient protection according to European rules. If we process your data outside the EU (possibly through our external service providers), we will ensure adequate protection of your personal data, for example by using special contracts (e.g. EU model contract provisions).

How long will we retain your personal data?

We will retain your data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which we use your data and/or as long as required by law. The period may vary from a few months to many years, for example if so required for the purpose of efficient bookkeeping.

Only authorized staff who have signed a confidentiality agreement have access to the data. Thus we maintain an adequate level of protection, which is periodically adjusted (if necessary). 

Our organization is set up in such a way that we do everything in our power to prevent data breaches. If there is a data breach, we will act in accordance with the Data Breach Protocol.
