We value that our services are transparent, personal and reliable. In that context, we think it is important that you know exactly which personal data we collect and how it is used and shared.
We describe the processing of your personal data in this Privacy Statement. This Privacy Statement may change from time to time if new developments give cause to do so. You can always find the most current Privacy Statement at our website.
What is personal data?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) states that personal data is any information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This means that information is either directly about someone or can be traced back to this person.
Motorcycles United B.V. (hereafter “Motorcycles United”), Beckerweg 1, (9731 AW) Groningen, registered at the Dutch chamber of commerce under number 66291887 is responsible for the processing of personal data as set out in this privacy statement.
For what purposes do we process personal data?
We only process your personal data for carefully defined purposes. We receive personal data from you inter alia because you purchased or want to purchase one or more products from us. The law then speaks of data processing that is necessary for the preparation or execution of an agreement. The bottom line is that we cannot help you as a customer if we do not process this data from you. Your personal data is also used because we carry out marketing activities. This is referred to by law as processing for legitimate interests. Below you will find more information about the different goals.
- To be able to process orders through our website
As soon as you have made an order, we process data such as: First and last name, data of birth (optional, this helps us verify your identity if you want to exercise your rights), address details, phone number, e-mail address, (if applicable Tax number). If you have a personal account, then the data is (also) stored in your account. We also store information about previous orders and / or cancellations in your account. In this way we can help you faster. As soon as you make, change or cancel an order, you will always receive a confirmation from us by e-mail. Payments are made through our payment provider Mollie (Mollie is a data controller. Please see the website of Mollie for more information). We do not process any financial data, other than if a payment was successfully processed for a specific order. This purpose is necessary for the conclusion or performance of an agreement (Article 6 paragraph 1 sub b GDPR).
- To create and maintain your personal account
You can create an account to make full use of our website. Your account contains your personal information, including name, surname, address, city, telephone number and e-mail address and past orders. You can of course always adjust the personal data you provide via your profile. This purpose is necessary for the conclusion or performance of an agreement (Article 6 paragraph 1 sub b GDPR).
- For customer service: handling questions / comments / complaints
You can call, email, tweet, facebook and chat with us. To ensure that we can help you immediately we use the data available in our customer relationship system, which includes your contact information and purchase history, et cetera. This is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR) and / or our legitimate interest (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
- To perform analyzes and development of our website, products & services
We approach you for a customer survey to, for example, measure your satisfaction. Your feedback and (online) customer behavior are very valuable to us to be able to provide our services. We always give you the option to unsubscribe from such customer surveys by emailing: [email protected] To help us improve our website (for example, to identify and resolve malfunctions), we may use your email address to send you an email in case an order has not been completed and your shopping cart still contains products that you may not have been able to order due to a malfunction. The legal basis is our legitimate interest in efficient business operations (Article 6 (1) f GDPR).
- Location data
- IP address or app IDs
- Internet browser and device type
- Website language
The data from the analytical and marketing cookies are not linked to the other data you provide during the ordering process. We refer to our cookie statement for more information about cookies. The legal basis is consent, which you give by agreeing to our cookie conditions in the cookie banner on the website (Article 6 paragraph 1 sub a GDPR).
- Sending offers, news and promotions by e-mail
You can sign up for the newsletter via our site. You will only receive marketing messages from us if you have given us permission to do so, or if you have purchased products / services from us and have not indicated that you do not wish to receive the marketing messages.
If you don't have an account yet, you will receive our generic offers. If you do have an account, we can send you a personal newsletter based on your past orders, preferences and/or place of residence, for example.
Would you rather not receive a newsletter anymore? Unsubscribing is done like this: via the email itself by clicking on "unsubscribe" or by emailing us at [email protected] with this request. The legal basis is our legitimate interest (Article 6 (1) f GDPR).
- To support our marketing communication campaigns
We are very happy to help you the right items for your project, for example by email. We also like to share our offer on Facebook. We also advertise with the help of Google Ads. This way we can use your data to show useful advertisements. In order to show you personalized advertisements when you visit Social Media or other websites and apps, we can match your e-mail address or other identifying information such as cookies with Facebook or Google Ads.
Through Facebook Custom Audiences (or "custom audiences") we can target advertisements on Facebook to our own customers. Facebook will undo this operation [the hashing] on its servers and look for the associated Facebook account information. Facebook can thus show the requested ad on your personal profile. For this processing, we have entered into a(n) (processor) agreement with Facebook and Google.
We obtain some information without you immediately noticing. For example, if you read our electronic (news) letters. We collect this information by means of email pixels. We only collect this information if we have received your consent (which consent you can always easily revoke by e-mailing us). We ask for your consent for the use of email pixels in our electronic (news) letters. With the help of the e-mail pixels, we know if and when an e-mail was opened and which links in the e-mail were opened. Based on this, we can offer a more personalized selection of news and/or offers and tailor these communications to your interests.
We use an e-mail pixel to send our newsletters and offers to collect information about your reading and click behavior. We can deduce your interests from this information. This allows the content of newsletters and offers to be tailored to your interests. You will then receive personalized newsletters and offers. If you do not want us to use an e-mail pixel, you can indicate this by sending an e-mail to [email protected] In that case you will no longer receive personalized newsletters and / or offers.
If you do not want us to show you any customized promotions through the use of an e-mail pixel, Facebook or Google, then that is no problem! Let us know by sending an e-mail to [email protected], then we will ensure that you no longer see advertisements from us on Social Media. The legal basis is our legitimate interest (Article 6 paragraph 1 sub f GDPR) and consent, which you give through our cookie banner and when you sign up for our newsletter (Article 6 paragraph 1 sub a GDPR).
