Personal data we (might) process

Arnhem Together processes your personal data because you use our services and/or because you provide this data to us yourself. Below you’ll find an overview of the personal data we process:

When you sign up for the newsletter, free updates and offers, or when asking information:
– your first- and last name,
– your email address.

When you purchase a service we process:
– your first- and last name,

Other data

We might receive additional data that you send us voluntarily in a message through email, or contact form. We don’t officially keep track of this data and we strongly advise you not to send personal medical information to us. We collect your data to welcome you, and to send you occasional exclusive information. We do so because you asked us to do this when you signed up for the newsletter. The legal basis is permission, and you can unsubscribe any time by using the unsubscribe link in our emails.

We love receiving your emails, and most of the time we delete it directly after reading it. Sometimes we keep it for a few months to give us some time to respond or to memorise any ideas, requests, or information that you ask us to add.

If you are interacting with us via social media, we will see your social media account name and photo/avatar that you use on our socials. Any response that you give on our social media channels will remain posted until you delete it yourself, or the channel decides to archive or delete your messages. When we decide that a response is compromising in any way, we are free to delete that response.


When you buy a product or service in the webshop, you become a customer. The legal basis then turns from permission to contractual agreement. From our customers, we also collect bank account numbers, delivery details, and we keep track of your purchases. We need this to deliver your purchases. We will keep this information for our own administration which we are legally required to hold on to it for at least 8 years after purchase.

We may also use customer information for our legitimate interests. This means that we want to provide our customers and members the most optimal and personalised service possible by using marketing techniques.

Who has access to your information?

Arnhem Together has access to data that we collect. We pass on your information to other parties when and to the extent that this is necessary for providing you our services. These parties are for instance:

With the third parties that receive personal data, we conclude data processing agreements.

Socials as third parties

We save your information in several databases, and we always use strict safety measures. Your information is saved within the European Union or is passed on to countries outside of the European Union, which ensures that your privacy remains protected in the best way possible as officially determined by the EU. Some American parties are registered under the Privacy Shield, which provides sufficient protection.
