Your privacy is of great importance to Van Raam Reha Bikes B.V. (hereafter “Van Raam”). It is for this reason that we follow the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in the Netherlands (AVG). This means that we:
Clearly communicate the objectives before we process your personal data, via this privacy and cookie statement;
Keep as little personal data as possible and only save data that are needed for the stated objectives;
Explicitly ask for permission before processing your personal data, where permission is required by law;
Take all required safety measures to protect your data. We also require any third parties involved in processing personal data to do the same.
Respect your rights, these include the right to request your data, correct, or the right to remove any personal data or contact details you provided to Van Raam.
Processing of personal data:
In this privacy and cookie statement we explain what Van Raam does with information that is being gathered about you. In case you have any questions or would like to know what exactly we record, please contact Van Raam using the contact details that can be found at the end of this statement.
By using our services, our bikes with electrical pedal assist, and our website (www.vanraam.com) we gather different personal data about you. We also gather data in case you apply for work at Van Raam. For all our services, it is being stated which data we gather, what the objective is, and which retention period applies.
We offer services that help you. We are a manufacturer of unique special needs bikes. Van Raam's specialisations are tricycles, scooter bikes, tandems, side-by-side tandems, wheelchair bikes, transport bikes and low entry bikes or comfort bikes. Our bikes are all also available as electric bikes. To be able to deliver a bike through your dealer we use your name and contact details. We do this to execute the agreement. We keep this data until the service is delivered unless we must keep the data to comply with our (fiscal) legal obligation. For example, we are obliged to keep our tax records for 7 years
In order to be able to provide our services, we work together with suppliers. To do business with us as a supplier we use your (company) name, function and contact details. To receive deliveries and place new orders with suppliers, we need contact details of the persons working there. We have a legitimate interest in processing these contact details, otherwise it will be impossible for us to carry out the agreement with the supplier. We will of course not use these contact details for other purposes and will only keep them for as long as the supplier relationship exists, or you stop working at the supplier in question.
You can request a free test ride at our premises. We use your name, place of residence, e-mail, phone number and preferred bike. We do this to execute the agreement: to give you a free test ride. We also ask if there are additional details to be considered, for example if you have trouble bending your left knee. The data you fill in in this case can be data concerning health. We will only use this data if you give us permission to do so. We will keep this data until the moment your test ride ends.
Find your dealer
We have different types of dealers. To find your (nearest) dealer (execution of the agreement) we use your postal code, city, and country. This data will not be stored.
The configurator module (configure your bike)
With our configurator module you can interactively configure a specific bike. To do this, we use your name, place of residence, e-mail address, information provided by you in the input fields and any enclosed attachment(s). We do this to be able to send you an overview of your completely configured bike via e-mail (execution of contract). This information is being stored until the moment we send you the overview and configuration.
The web shop module (ordering parts)
Dealers can order spare parts from us. To become a customer as a dealer you need to register first. For this purpose we use your (company) name, gender, address, place of residence, telephone number(s), fax number, country, Chamber of Commerce number, e-mail address, the information you enter in the fields and any enclosed attachments. We do this to create your account in which you can place orders (execution of the agreement). The information in your account will of course also be used for the completion of the order. We keep this information if your account exists unless we must keep the data to meet our (fiscal) legal obligation. For example, we are obliged to keep our tax records for 7 years.
Share your experience
Do you have a Van Raam bike, then you can share the experiences you have of using our products. We use your name, city, phone number, e-mail address, the description/experience you have filled in and any photos you have enclosed. With your permission we will publish your name, the product you have purchased, your photos and your experiences of our product on our website. We will retain this information until the experience is no longer relevant to website visitors, or until you have withdrawn your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time.
We publish news articles via our website. If you are part of a news article we may use your information. We only do this if you have given us permission to do so. You can always withdraw your permission, in which case we will remove the article from our website.
Through our contact form you can ask us questions and requests. You can also call us and/or send us an e-mail. We will use your name, address, place of residence, e-mail address, telephone number and content of the message. We need these to process your contact request. We will retain this information until the contact request has been processed or, if a customer relationship arises from the contact request, for as long as the long as the customer relationship continues.
You can apply for a job at Van Raam. When you apply with us, we collect your name, gender, date of birth, telephone number, e-mail address, photo, address, work level, work and training experience, motivation, résumé, availability, references and any attachments and information you may have enclosed. We process this application data in preparation for the possible conclusion of an employment contract and - if you come to work for us - to be able to execute your employment contract.
A social media and Google search can be part of the application procedure. This is necessary to ensure that our image is maintained when hiring new staff. We do this based on our legitimate interests. For this purpose, we will search your name on Google and your profile on various social media channels. This of course as far as these profiles are public; we will not ask you to grant us access to a protected social media page or to make a connection with us. The results of the research will be discussed with you. If you object to this, you can indicate this by e-mail at the time of your application.
The personal details will be stored for a maximum of six (6) weeks after the position has been filled. We will retain this personal information so that we can contact you if the position becomes vacant again within the probationary period. If you give us permission to do so, we will retain your application details up to one year after the end of the application procedure. You can withdraw your permission at any time. We will then remove your personal data from our system.
If you come to work at Van Raam, we will keep your application data in your personnel file. After two years of employment, we will remove the application data from the personnel file.
