Type of information collected
We receive, collect and store any information you enter on our website or provide us in any other way. We may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. We also collect personally identifiable information (including name, email, password, communications); payment details (including credit card information), comments, feedback, product reviews, recommendations, and personal profile.
Additionally, we will keep client records of the sessions. These records will be kept for 7 years after the last session. These records are confidential and will not be shared with 3rd parties.
What are the legal grounds for the use of your information?
Our company is based in the European Union and as such we comply with the European privacy laws and regulations. Our policy on the privacy protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data is based on the Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 on the protection of personal data by the EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and we are fully compliant with the GDPR regulations.
We require your information because of the contractual agreements between you and Marama Health (for example, in the case of your purchase or payment for our services), and this applies to the following cases:
Ordering & pre-ordering
Payments and invoicing
Communicating with you
Screening orders for potential risk or fraud
Creation of your account
In operating our website, we need to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our website. For example, this might include a time-stamp, the last page you visited, the indication that you logged in.
This is because we want to provide our customers with the most optimal and personalized service possible.
We do that in order to:
Remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click.
Monitor if our website is running with the high performance we want to provide.
Let you browse between pages without having to start back from the home page at each click.
Remember if you put something in your shopping cart before you decide to checkout.
Control that your data is processed securely.
To support you with customer assistance.
Next to this, we can use your information in the case of "legitimate interest". We of course keep your privacy in mind at all times. This applies to:
Reviews & customer satisfaction research
Contact with our customer service
Visiting the Marama Health website
Your Marama Health Account
Newsletter & email
Use of some features of our website
We could have a legal obligation to use your information. When we suspect fraud, for example. And sometimes you’ve provided us permission to use your information. This is the case when you subscribe to the newsletter. We keep track of this appropriately.
Other information you expressly provide
If you make a payment for our products or services, we will need more specific information about you. To fully process your order and provide you with our products and services, we need your personal data such as your first and last name, your email address, and your billing address. We also use your contact and order information to send you communication-related to the processing of your order. We will ask you to provide this information on our “checkout page” before letting you finalize your purchase with the payment.
You can sign up for an account if you would like. If you decide to purchase a product or service, you will need to create an account to access and interact with our service options. You can ask us to delete it at any time, by contacting us.
If you have started to buy one of our services, but have not completed the purchase, you may have provided partial information, such as your email. In that case, we might send you an email to remind you about your interest. If you are not comfortable receiving further emails of this kind, you can opt out. Your privacy means a lot to us and we will stop sending you these communications right away.
If you have completed a purchase, we will send you an email to ask you to review the product or service you bought. We want to be sure that whether you love your purchase or have a complaint, you can share your opinion with us and other customers.
We also use some specific information related to your visit, such as the timestamp of your visit, the page or the product you viewed, where you are coming from (if you came to our store because you clicked on an advertisement or you just opened our direct link). This is very similar to the “essential information,” but we use it to provide you with a personalized experience. The information on your visit provides us with insights into your interests and allows us to send you relevant communications. We capture this information through cookies, called a "beacon," that we allow you to block.
Cookies allow, for example, that you do not have to enter or download the same information every time you return to our site. In addition, cookies help us understand how you use our sites and how to make them better and more customer-friendly. It has to be said: we also use them for marketing purposes.
If you want to use our websites with all their features, you will have to accept our cookies.

Who has access to your information?
We only pass on your information to other parties when this is necessary for providing you with our services. These parties are as follows: delivery partners, vendors, payment partners, IT and web service providers, customer service agents, and parties who collect our reviews.
Parties such as data management platforms, media, and advertising agencies, and research firms, come into play when we would like to give you personalized advice or provide you with targeted ads. Based on your interest in specific products for example. We are obliged to share customer information with government authorities in the case of suspicious situations.
The parties who receive access to your information through us, are only allowed to use it to offer you a service on behalf of Marama Health. An exception is when they are responsible for acquiring and protecting your information themselves. Some cookie developers have access to the information which cookies collect on our website. You will read more about this in our cookie statement and in the privacy policies of these parties. We never sell your information to third parties.
Where do we store your information and how do we process it?
We use an external provider to run our website, Wix. Wix is based in the US and is a participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and is committed to providing best-in-class service and data protection. You can check its participation in the Privacy Shield here on the official site of The International Trade Administration (ITA), U.S. Department of Commerce. Because of this, your information may be transferred outside of Europe.
Through Wix, we also use other, highly specialized external providers to provide the most competitive services. For example:
Payment: Our store is PCI-DSS compliant (a very strict industry standard with requirements for the security of credit card information), but we want to use accredited companies to process your credit card information. These companies are Mollie, Stripe, and PayPal.
Online sessions: We might integrate with video call platforms such as Zoom or other options to provide our services.
E-mail: We might use Protonmail, Gmail, or other email service providers to communicate with you.
Partnering with highly specialized external companies allows us to focus on what we do best: providing amazing coaching and therapy sessions.
How can you control your personal data?
If you are one of our customers who are in the EU, and we are specifically selling our products and services to the Member State where you are located, you have specific rights that we are honored to enforce without undue delay: Access, Correct, Erasure, Port, Object. If you cannot exercise your choice on your account page or if you do not have an account with us, please reach out to us, at the contact details at the bottom of this page. We will be more than happy to help.
How long do we keep your data?
We don’t save and use your information for longer than necessary. We delete all the data we have of you afterward. Or we use your anonymous information because we need specific data for internal analyses and reports. Such as on the value of your order.
We keep your data for as long as you have an account with us. We also keep some data for security investigation. Most importantly, we have specific obligations for fraud detection and tax reasons. Therefore, we might need to retain certain data even if you ask to delete it. The following scenarios are some examples:
We delete inactive customer accounts after 7 years. We only use your anonymous information for internal reporting after this period.
Client records are kept for 7 years after the last session. Any client record will be deleted after 7 years of inactivity.
The Belgian tax authority requires us to save our administrative paperwork with your invoicing, payment, and order details for 7 years. We only use anonymous information for internal reporting after this period. You’ll also need to save the invoices of your purchases, for when your warranty expires for example.
If you’ve subscribed to the newsletter and you’ve given permission for receiving personalized messages, then we save this permission for 5 years. We also save the retraction of your permission in case you decide you don’t want to receive the newsletter or personalized messages any longer.
We store information we need to prevent fraud for a longer period.
We don’t save the emails you receive from us for longer than 60 days. You don’t have to worry about receiving the same email from us regularly. We only use your anonymous information for internal reporting after this period.
Communication with site visitors
We may contact you to notify you regarding your account, to troubleshoot problems with your account, to resolve a dispute, to collect fees or monies owed, to poll your opinions through surveys or questionnaires, to send updates about our company, or as otherwise necessary to contact you to enforce our User Agreement, applicable national laws, and any agreement we may have with you. For these purposes we may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, and postal mail.
We might use e-mail providers such as Protonmail (encrypted e-mail), Gmail, Outlook or others.
