Hobo Parts Brakel believes that careful processing and protection of personal data is important. When processing personal data, we comply with the requirements set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We define which personal data we collect and use, and for what purpose, in this privacy policy. We also advise how you can make corrections.

Personal data
Personal data means all information regarding the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). This includes details such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. You are not required to disclose personal information in order to use our website. In certain cases, we require your name, address and other data so that we can offer you the requested services. This includes, for instance, the use of contact forms or registering downloaded software.

Processing personal data
We process and use the following data:

  1. - any personal data you provide to Hobo Parts Brakel, for instance, when sending (e-mail) messages to Hobo Parts Brakel, when entering into an agreement or when completing (online) forms. This includes details such as name, telephone number(s), e-mail address and the name and address of your company or the company where you work.
  2. - when you use our services, we will normally only collect the personal data that we need to provide the service requested. When entering into an agreement you will be asked for your name, telephone number(s), e-mail address and name and address of your company or company where you work. Where we request further information from you, that information need only be provided on a voluntary basis;
  3. - cookies are stored when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files which can be used by websites to make user experiences more efficient. We may lawfully store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for using the site. We need your permission for all other types of cookies [see also “What are cookies?”];

  5. - Data is stored about e-mails we send you, which tells us whether you have received the e-mail, opened it and which links you might have clicked.

Special or sensitive personal data which we process
Our website or service providers do not intentionally collect data about visitors to our website who are under 16, unless they have permission from parents or guardian. However, we cannot verify whether a visitor is over 16. We therefore advise parents to take an interest in their children’s online activities, to prevent data about children being collected without parental consent. Where you believe we might have collected personal data about a minor without permission, please contact us via e-mail and we will remove this information.

We process personal data for various purposes (and to the extent permitted by law), such as:

  1. - carrying out the agreement that you have entered into with us;

  3. - sending news and service-based information to inform, interest and engage our customers (marketing purposes). You can always unsubscribe if you do not wish to receive this information;
  4. - offering products or services from Hobo Parts Brakel (marketing purposes). You can always unsubscribe if you do not wish to receive this information;
  5. - analytical purposes, and also to improve our services.

We publish a newsletter where we provide interested parties with news about our business activities. Your e-mail address will only be added to the subscribers list with your specific permission.

Where you have provided your personal data for receiving the newsletter, your personal data will be saved for as long as you wish to receive our newsletter. Should you unsubscribe from the newsletter we will delete your personal data immediately. The newsletter database is not shared with third parties. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter by sending an e-mail to our e-mail address.

Storing data
We do not store your personal data for longer than is necessary in order to achieve the purposes for which your data is collected.
This shall only apply where there is no conflict with statutory retention times, technical or organisational requirements or other legal obligations.

Sharing with third parties
The data collected by us is needed to achieve the purposes outlined above. We will only make your data available to third parties where sharing data with these third parties (“processors”) is necessary for carrying out the purposes mentioned above (for instance, in connection with supplying services with regard to products or services we supplied to you).
