Privacy and cookie statement

Van Tiem Elektro BV respects the privacy of all visitors to its website, of its (potential) customers and of its other contacts. Van Tiem Elektro BV puts the safety and confidentiality of your personal data first and handles your personal data with care. In this privacy statement, we inform you about how our organisation handles your personal data. Personal data is any information that can (directly or indirectly) identify a natural person.

Which personal data do we process?

Processing personal data ranges from receiving and storing to adjusting, forwarding and deleting personal data. In any case, this includes the following data:

  • basic information such as your first and last name, title, gender, the company you work for or your position;
  • contact details such as postal address, (mobile) telephone number or e-mail address;
  • additional personal data such as date of birth, nationality and marital status;
  • technical data, such as your IP address, the device you use to visit our website and the pages you view;
  • personal data that you give us when you apply for a job with us, such as education and career data;
  • any other personal data we obtain from or about you or which we may obtain ourselves and which we use for the purposes set out below.

How do we obtain your personal data?

We obtain your personal data in two different ways. In most cases, we receive the data directly from you because you have provided it to us yourself. This is for example the case when you contact us via the contact form on our website, when you apply for a vacancy or when you make use of our services. Otherwise, we receive your personal data automatically through the use of cookies.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your PC, tablet or smartphone. Cookies are used, for example, to remember settings or preferences. On our site, we use the following cookies:

Google Analytics cookies

Google Analytics cookies allow us to measure and analyse the use of our website. We have limited the settings and use of Google Analytics to a minimum in accordance with the ‘Privacy-friendly Setting of Google Analytics Manual’ (dated 15 August 2018) of the Dutch Data Protection Authority. We have concluded a processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics. In addition, we use Anonymize IP. This means that prior to sending the IP address to Google, the last octet of the IP address is pseudonymised. Finally, we have deactivated the option “share data with Google” and do not use other Google services in combination with the Google Analytics cookies.

If, despite all these measures, you still do not want us to track your behaviour anonymously, there is an opt-out possibility.[1] Google offers this option on their website:

Please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all the features of this website.

Social media cookies

We have also placed social media buttons on our website so that you can contact us via social media and/or share our posts via these social media platforms. When you use one of these social media buttons to link to a Linkedin, Facebook, YouTube or WhatsApp website, these platforms may place cookies on your computer. More information about these cookies can be found in the privacy statements of the platforms concerned. Please note that these declarations may change regularly; we have no influence on this.

What do we process personal data for?
In all relationships that we enter into, personal data is necessary in order to ultimately offer the best possible service and cooperation. We process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To provide the services offered;
  • To be able to contact you;
  • To comply with laws and regulations;
  • to analyse and improve our services and website;
  • marketing and communication purposes
  • Invoicing of our services and/or products;
  • customer satisfaction surveys;
  • application procedures;
  • access control and security;

On what grounds do we process personal data?

The privacy law stipulates that we may only process your personal data if there is a legal basis for doing so. The above processing takes place on one of the following legal grounds from the AVG:

  1. For the execution of our agreement with you
  2. For the execution of a legal obligation
  3. Based on your consent
  4. Because of a legitimate interest

How long do we keep your personal data?

We do not retain your personal data any longer than is necessary for the purpose for which we have collected and recorded it. If there is a statutory retention obligation or a retention period on the basis of professional or behavioural rules, we adhere to these periods.

What rights do you have as a data subject?

According to the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG), you have a number of rights as a data subject. These include the right to access, delete and correct your personal data and the right to object to processing. If you wish to exercise such a right, please contact us via the contact form or e-mail us at .
If you have a complaint about the way we deal with privacy, you can also contact the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens), based in The Hague, via

With whom do we share your personal data?
Van Tiem Elektro BV will only share your data with third parties if this is necessary for the execution of our services. This is possible in the following situations, among others:

  • In order to comply with legal obligations, for example, a report to a regulatory authority;
  • In order to provide our services, for example, to contact you in response to a request from you or to process your application.
  • Third parties involved in the organisation of our activities

Third parties to whom we provide your personal data are also responsible for the processing of that data and for compliance with the AVG. If a third party processes your personal data as a processor on behalf of Van Tiem Elektro BV, we will conclude a processor’s agreement that meets the requirements of the AVG. This could be the suppliers of our ICT systems, for example Google. After all, in order to monitor and improve the content and use of our website, we collect the surfing behaviour of our website visitors. We do this through Google Analytics. We have therefore concluded a processing agreement with Google.

When our website refers to another website, this declaration is no longer applicable. This privacy statement only applies to the website of Van Tiem Elektro BV.

In exceptional cases, we may need to disclose your personal data without your consent, for example if we are legally obliged to do so. We will do our utmost to inform you of such situations in advance.

How are personal details secured?

We have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent misuse, loss, unauthorised access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorised modification of your personal data. If you have any questions about the security of your personal data or if you suspect any misuse thereof, please contact us via .


Because we may change this statement from time to time, we recommend that you check this page regularly to be aware of any changes. If we make any substantial changes to our privacy policy, we will also post a prominent notice on our website. If we intend to use your data for other processing, we will actively inform you.
