1.1 Collection of personal data
BlooMEDical only collects personal data that 1) has been provided to it explicitly and voluntarily (e.g. when you sign up for the newsletter or when you register for a workshop), 2) has been provided to it in the context of the performance of an agreement (such as the purchase of a product), 3) it has a legitimate interest in collecting, or 4) is necessary to comply with a legal obligation (e.g. in the case of suspected fraud).
BlooMEDical processes the following personal data: company name, contact person, address, telephone number, e-mail address, profession and nationality. With your permission, BlooMEDical also processes images of workshop participants.
In the event of a complaint from a data subject (patient) related to the use of a product supplied by BlooMEDical, medical data will also be collected – in addition to the above-mentioned data – insofar as such data is necessary for the assessment of the complaint. This data is provided to BlooMEDical by the practitioner of the person involved, with that person’s consent.
You can visit the websites of BlooMEDical without giving BlooMEDical any information about your identity. However, there are situations in which information is required from you that can be traced back to your identity, such as your name, address and e-mail address. This data will be used, for example, to correspond with you or to carry out a registration for an event. In these cases, we will ask you to fill in the personal data relevant to that action on a web form provided for that purpose.
We use data relating to your click and usage behaviour to investigate opportunities to further optimise and communicate about our products and services. We will only use any information you make available to us in accordance with the law, and this use will be carried out in a proper and careful manner.
1.2 Processing of personal data
Purpose of processing
BlooMEDical records data as part of our services. If you are asked to provide personal data (as indicated under 1.1.), for example, in the context of submitting an order or another action, this data will be used for the administrative processing of your request. In other words, when you place an order, BlooMEDical uses that personal data to process the order.
When you request information, we use your personal data to provide you with the requested information.
When you register for a workshop, we use your personal data to inform you about the workshop.
If you have a complaint related to a product supplied by BlooMEDical, your personal data will be processed to assess the complaint. This data is stored internally at BlooMEDical in our complaint log and is password protected.
Storage of personal data
The personal data recorded by BlooMEDical is stored in a CRM system, among other things. This system is used in connection with managing customer data and interactions with these customers.
BlooMEDical offers a newsletter to those who are interested. Through this newsletter, you will be informed about news concerning the products and services offered and other related matters. The newsletter will only be provided if you have given your express consent, unless this is not necessary under the privacy laws.
If necessary and desired, you must provide your e-mail address, after which the newsletter will be sent. Every newsletter contains a link by which the interested party can unsubscribe. The newsletter subscriber database is not passed on to third parties. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
Forwarding to third parties
In principle, BlooMEDical does not provide personal data to third parties, unless this is necessary for the provision of services and the implementation of an agreement, such as the engagement of transport companies (DHL, DPD, AVM Koeriers, Delifa Koeriers and so on) and if BlooMEDical is required to do so based on legal obligations.
The personal data that BlooMEDical receives from a practitioner of a data subject (patient) are not provided to the supplier of the relevant product or only in an anonymous form.
Rights of data subjects
You have the right – subject to statutory exceptions – to ask BlooMEDical to inspect and/or rectify and/or delete the personal data and/or to restrict the processing in question.
You also have the right to object to the processing and BlooMEDical shall transfer your data upon request.
BlooMEDical shall endeavour to comply with each of the above requests within one month, unless this cannot be required of us, for example, for reasons of complexity.
If the processing of personal data is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory body in the Netherlands, namely, the Dutch Data Protection Authority. The contact details of the Dutch Data Protection Authority can be found at the website www.autoriteitpersoonsgegevens.nl.
1.3 Your e-mail address
If you have provided your e-mail address to receive a newsletter, your e-mail address can be used to inform you as a (potential) customer about similar products and services of BlooMEDical that are relevant and interesting to you. This shall be indicated by a clearly visible notice on all forms on the website. If you no longer wish to receive this information, you can unsubscribe at any time by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, contact us in writing: BlooMEDical Benelux BV, Neerloopweg 5 A1, 4814 RS Breda, the Netherlands, or use the link at the bottom of the newsletter.
1.4 Data retention period
BlooMEDical shall not retain personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the data is collected or used and is permitted under current privacy legislation.
If you do not wish to receive information about (new) products and services and therefore wish to withdraw your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, in writing: BlooMEDical Benelux BV, Neerloopweg 5 A1, 4814 RS Breda, the Netherlands, or use the link at the bottom of the newsletter.
The data you provide to BlooMEDical will be stored in a secure environment. When processing personal data, BlooMEDical shall at all times maintain a level of security that, given the state of the art, is sufficient to prevent unauthorised access to, alteration, disclosure or loss of personal data.

This is done using so-called cookies. Below you will find a brief explanation of exactly what information is collected using cookies and what is done with that information, why we believe this is necessary and via which websites this data is collected. Finally, we provide brief instructions on what you can do if you prefer not to accept any or all cookies.

2.3.5. Unforeseen cookies
Due to the way the internet and websites work, there is a possibility that BlooMEDical will not always have insight into the cookies that are placed via the domains by third parties.
If you encounter any such cookies (which do not fall into any of the above categories), please let us know. Of course, you can also contact the third party directly and ask what cookies they place, the reason for doing so, the cookie’s life span and how they guarantee your privacy.
