Your privacy and the safe processing of your personal data is very important to us! Of course, you want to order your mobile phone, contract, and/or accessories without having to worry about privacy and online security. That is why we would like to show you how we deal with your personal data.
Gomibo, part of MobielWerkt BV, is responsible for all personal data you leave with us. These are our details:
|Company address||Waagstraat 1, 9712 JX Groningen|
|Postal address:||PO Box 3023, 9701 DA Groningen|
|Registration number with the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce||02093714|
If you have any questions about privacy and security, please contact Team Privacy or the Data Protection Officer (FG) at email@example.com. The Data Protection Officer (FG) of Gomibo is officially registered with the Dutch Personal Data Authority (AP).
Gomibo collects personal data in various ways. Which exact data is collected depends on what you do on our website: do you visit the website without placing an order or do you order something from us? What exactly you order also has an influence on this. We would like to explain which data of yours we process.
Of course we need to know who you are when you place an order with us. That way we can help you in the best possible way. That's why we ask for your gender, date of birth, initials, and surname. For the delivery of your order, we also need your address. Together with your initials, surname, address details, order number, telephone number, and track & trace code we will send this to the package delivery company.
We will send you updates on your order by email, and sometimes by text message. We will need your email address and phone number for this. We will also send you invoices and information about the products you have purchased. After you've placed your order, we'll sometimes ask you what you think of us, usually by email and sometimes by phone. With your feedback we can continue to improve!
Paying for your order is always done via a secure payment environment. Linking your payment to your order is also done via a secure environment. In case of a credit card payment, we send your details from our secure payment environment directly to the payment processors.
When you apply for a contract at Gomibo, we need your identity to verify who you are. For this we need an identity document from you. We have made agreements with the Dutch government to process this personal data, so we can prevent identity fraud and track down fraudsters and criminals more quickly.
To upload your proof of identity, we use special software which we have developed at Gomibo. This means that your passport photo(s), BSN number, and the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) on the card are immediately masked by the software. We do not need this information from you. We do process your name, surname, date of birth, place of birth, period of validity of your document, type of proof of idenity, and document number.
If you purchase a contract from us in-store, or if you do not use our "No Fuss contract", we will ask you for a copy of your bank card. The card number, IBAN number, and name of the card holder must be clearly visible in order to verify that the bank account really belongs to you. This prevents someone else from ordering a contract paid for from your account. You can mask certain data as long as the necessary information remains visible.
If you apply for a contract through Gomibo we may conduct a risk assessment to support your application in order to combat financial and identity fraud. *Please note: it is not yet possible to buy a contract from Gomibo.mt.
Did you choose to transfer your phone number to another provider? Then we need the name of your current provider, your phone number, and your connection type. Sometimes we also need your SIM card number or customer number. With this we ensure that your phone number is transferred with you.
If you have chosen a device bundle that falls under the relevant credit legislation, we may need your details for an income and burden test (ILT). This way we know for sure that you have chosen a contract which fits your financial situation. The income and burden test (ILT) must be carried out in accordance with the relevant credit legislation. For this we may need to process your family composition, net monthly income, and housing costs. Under no circumstances do you have to send us your payslip or other evidence for this purpose!
When you buy a product from us, we store its IMEI and EAN number. The IMEI number is a unique code which is linked to your specific product. The EAN number is a number that is linked to the type of product that you have bought from us. This way, we can be sure that you actually get what you ordered from us.
With a contract, we note your SIM card number. This way we know for sure you will receive the correct SIM card and the correct contract will be placed on the correct SIM card. This way we can always provide the right service, for example if you have requested to transfer your number.
Did you choose to place an order at Gomibo with specific services, such as an insurance or a subscription at a streaming service? If so, depending on the service provider, we might need more additional data from you, such as an IBAN-number, or an accepted direct debit for deducting the premium from your bank account, or to charge the periodical subscription costs by the service provider.
Do you want to collect an order in our store? If so, we will always ask a few verification questions for verification purposes. As a proof for collecting your package in the store, we always need a copy of your proof of identity, in order to confirm your identity. For making the copy, we will use the software that was created by Gomibo. This software will automatically mask the photo(s), BSN-number, and the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) that are on your proof of identity. We do not need this information from you. The other information on your document is necessary in confirm that we have handed over the correct package.
We like to keep you informed by mail, email, phone, or text message when you place an order with us. Sometimes we will send you messages about tips and tricks, security updates, review requests, personalised vouchers, discount offers, information about the end of your contract, or other relevant information about your order or personal interests. You can also use our website or app to run a contract upgrade check. To do so, we will ask you for your mobile phone number, postal code, house number, email, date of birth, and type of contract. This way, we can keep you informed via service messages of when you can upgrade your contract or apply for a new one. As a customer, you will automatically receive all communications from Gomibo, except for our newsletter. You will only receive our newsletter if you have given your explicit consent. You can easily manage your communication preferences via your Gomibo account.

For your, and our safety, we record and store camera images in our stores. Online, this is different. If you use the Gomibo app, we store the usage data of your phone, such as the number of call minutes, text messages, and MB’s, so we can give you the best phone advice. We also use tracking pixels. This enables us to offer you a personalised shopping experience, tailored to your preferences.

When you contact our customer service, we want to help you as best as we can. That is why, we save the email conversations you have with our customer service agents. It is also possible that phone conversations are recorded for training purposes. We always tell you this before the phone call. Sometimes we will ask you to provide us with specific personal details during an email or phone call. We ask these questions to verify that you are the customer that is associated with the order you are asking about. We will also make notes of our contact, so that we know exactly what was discussed if you contact us again.
Would you like to exchange or cancel, or do you have a defective product? We'd love to help! Before you send your device back, it is important to create a back-up and reset it to its factory settings. This is necessary in order to process it, and it also deletes any personal data on your device.
You are responsible for resetting your device. If you do not do this, or if it fails, all possible data will still be deleted from your device. In addition, you then agree that your data may be forwarded to, for example, a repair service provider.
Repairs are carried out by specialised repair companies. Is your device, or a part of it, replaced by a new one? Your old phone or device is carefully destroyed or recycled by the repair company.
Your privacy is very important to us. Therefore, we only share certain or specific personal details with partners and third parties if this is really necessary, for example because it is required for your order. We never sell your details to third parties as is.
In order to properly regulate this, we have concluded a processing agreement with all parties with whom we share your personal details. This is a contract in which clear agreements are made about who is responsible for which data. There are various parties with whom we share your personal details, to ensure that your order arrives within 24 hours and we can offer you the best service:
Most parties are based in the European Union and are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation. In some cases, we also share certain details with partners who are based in the United States of America (USA) and who previously actively participated in the European-American 'Privacy Shield'. We have made strict agreements with these parties regarding the processing of personal data. We have recorded these agreements in standard contractual clauses (SCC).
We will not keep your personal data longer than necessary. In some cases we need your personal data to detect fraud or illegal activities. In this case, we have a legal obligation to share this personal data with the police, the judiciary, or the public prosecutor when we receive a request. Besides that, we have a tax responsibility to the tax authorities. This means that we store your personal data for legitimate, legal, and commercial reasons, in order to deliver the products and services you have ordered, and to provide you with a service that is as safe and reliable as possible.
Would you like us to change your privacy preferences? Then contact the privacy team: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you place an order with us, we might use public data sources and databases to verify your identity, and verify your shopping behaviour. Based on all of that information, an automatic decision might be made about your order, application for a phone contract, or any other additional service.
We always ensure the best information security. Our website has a secure connection (recognisable by 'https' in the address bar) and SSL certificates. Additionally, we always use the best security software, so that your personal data is stored as securely as possible. This is done in ISO 27001 certified data centres on our own servers in the Netherlands.
We check and monitor all our employees, who has access to which personal data and we keep a record of who has seen which personal data. This way we always know what happens to your personal data. Moreover, all employees of Gomibo have a Certificate of Conduct (VOG), so we can be sure that everyone handles your personal data safely.

You can do this at our customer service or by contacting the privacy team directly at email@example.com. We ask you to verify that it is you, so that we do not simply share your details with someone else.
Of course you can delete your data with us, if you want to. Our privacy specialists will process your request within 15 business days.
Did you order a contract through Gomibo? Then we cannot remove your personal data, because you have entered into a fixed term contract with one of the telecom providers via Gomibo. After the expiry of your contract with your provider, you can request Gomibo to remove your personal data.
