Nijland Cycling, having its registered office at Telgenweg 12 in (811 CM) Heeten and registered under number 38020120, values your privacy. Nijland Cycling BV acts, under certain circumstances, under the name Cargo Cycling, which in such cases will be expressly mentioned.

We are engaged in developing and/or manufacturing all kinds of bicycles. As part of our business, we process personal data. We comply with laws and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: GDPR), when processing this data. This statement explains what data we save, for how long and how we protect your personal data. The statement applies to all users and customers of the website and/or services of Nijland Cycling BV.

  1. Personal data

Article 4 from the GDPR specifies what information is covered by the term ‘personal data’. It refers to any information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This means that information is directly about someone, or can be traced back to this person. For example, a name, address, place of residence, telephone number or postcode with house number. Camera images and/or sound recordings are also personal data within the meaning of the GDPR. Furthermore, the GDPR mentions special personal data, involving – for example – race, religion or medical data. These are data that deserve extra protection.

  • What personal data do we collect?

If we collect and use your personal data, it is mostly because you are a (potential) customer. In this case, you have left personal data to get or stay in contact with us. We also process personal data of our suppliers’ contact persons. Finally, we process your personal data when you apply for a job with us or when you are employed by Nijland Cycling.

  • Specific cases in which personal data are processed
  • We process your personal data if you have fulfilled the contact form on the website. The personal data processed in this case are: (first) name, telephone number and your e-mail address.

Clarification: to ensure personal contact, we ask for your name in the contact form. In addition, it is necessary to process your e-mail address and telephone number so that we can get in touch with you. We only process this data when you give us permission to do so.

  • It is at any time possible to send us an e-mail. In that case, we will process at least your e-mail address and your name (first and/or last name).

Clarification: When you send us an e-mail, we will at least receive your e-mail address and your name. We may also process other personal data that you send to us. By sending an e-mail, you are giving us permission for this processing. We recommend that you only send us the information necessary to answer your query. In general, the following applies: for any information that you send us in a free message, by sending it, you consent to the processing of this information.

  • We process your personal data when you apply for a job with us or when we enter into an employment contract with each other. At the application stage, we process (possibly) the following data: first and last name, telephone number, e-mail address, curriculum vitae, address, date of birth, gender, work experience, education and courses, desired professions or work, data on availability and possibly a copy of the ID.

Clarification: we process the above-mentioned data to match your wishes and qualities to our services. We therefore expressly advise you not to provide more than the aforementioned data.

If you enter into an employment contract with us, we will process some more data. For example, we will then process: your nationality, ID card, place of birth, citizen service number, bank account number and marital status.

Clarification: we process this data because it is necessary for the performance of the agreement.

  • If you contact us by phone, we may record the conversation for training, analysis and quality improvement purposes. We see improvement of our services as a legitimate ground to process data.
  • Do we share data with third parties?

We do not disclose your personal data to third parties without your consent, unless required by a legal provision or if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary. If we deem it necessary to share your personal data with a third party, we will ensure that no more data is ever shared than is necessary in the specific situation.

  • Data retention period

We keep your data carefully and no longer than allowed by the legal retention periods, or – in the absence of legal retention periods – no longer than necessary.

  • How do we protect and secure your personal data?

We are committed to taking the most appropriate organisational and technical measures to secure the personal data present against any form of unlawful processing, loss and/or theft.

An example of an organisational measure is that only authorised employees of Nijland Cycling are allowed to access your data. These employees only have access to your personal data to the extent necessary to carry out their duties and have a duty of confidentiality in relation to your personal data. If data has been provided to third parties, they will have signed a processing agreement, stating the purpose for which the data is received, may be processed and how it should be handled.

  • Your rights with regard to personal data

With regard to our processing of personal data, you have several rights:

  • Right to information and/or inspection. You can contact us at any time to ask what data we have processed about you. You can also contact us to ask us to amend, delete or transfer personal data.
  • Right to amend and/or delete. You have the right to have personal data amended or deleted if the data is incorrect. This can also be done when processing is no longer justified. There may be legal exceptions to this, allowing us to refuse such a request.
  • Right to restriction. Under circumstances, you can ask us to temporarily stop processing your personal data. This can be done if you have submitted an amendment or if your data should actually be deleted, but you do not want this or if we no longer need your data but you do, for example for the preparation of a court case.
  • Right to object. You can object to certain processing of your personal data. You can do so for all processing for which you do not have consent data or when we do not comply with our legal obligation (GDPR). In other cases, you can also object, but we may still process if there is a legitimate interest.
  • Right to data portability. You have the right to request the data we have obtained from you yourself. We will then send you this data digitally as soon as possible.

If you wish to use any of your rights the following applies. You can exercise your rights free of charge and can do so by sending an e-mail to If we are of the opinion that the right of inspection has been abused, we will charge the costs incurred as a result.  We aim to respond to requests made to us within one month. We may refuse your request, but we will always give reasons for doing so. If you disagree with our decision, you can always submit it to a competent court.

  • Data breach

Despite the measures taken and continuing to be taken, others may illegally access your personal data for improper purposes. This situation constitutes a data breach. We urge you to report this to us at so that we can take immediate action. When a report is made, as little personal data as possible is requested from you. We process the data to verify the report, investigate it and possibly report the outcome to you.
