Privacy Statement Hely (by Mobility Solutions and Services B.V.) - ENGLISH VERSION

Hely considers the protection of your personal data to be of  great importance. We have  created this privacy statement to explain how we process your data, potentially share it with other parties, and what rights you have in this regard. We recommend that you read this privacy statement carefully. This privacy statement applies to everyone who uses Hely's services either via the Hely app (App) or the website. Please refer to  our User Terms for more information regarding the use of the Hely services.

1. Who is responsible for processing your data?

In this privacy statement, Hely, represented by Mobility Solutions and Services B.V. (hereinafter: "Hely" or "we"), describes how we, as the data controller (within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation), process your personal data that you provide to us or that we obtain through the use of our App and the vehicles. Hely also describes which type of data we provide to Partners with whom Hely collaborates to facilitate the Service to you as the User. If you apply for a job with us, we process your data as described in this separate privacy statement: .

2. What is personal data?

Information about an identified or identifiable natural person is personal data. Whether certain information qualifies as personal data also depends on whether Hely has legal means that can reasonably be expected to be valid to identify an individual.

3. Personal data we process

We process personal data because you provide data to us when entering into an Agreement with us or when you use our services via your employer or privately. We may receive data from and/or provide data to Partners with whom Hely collaborates to enable services. These Partners are data controllers for the personal data they process and may provide to us. For more information on how these Partners process your personal data and your related rights, we refer you to the Partners' privacy statements.

A) Data required to optimally use Hely's services

Hely services may include various types of mobility services, including but not limited to the use of shared vehicles and adjacent mobility solutions such as shared cars, shared bicycles, and ride registration. If you enter into an Agreement with Hely, we may process the following personal data to provide the service:

B) Data generated by your Use of our Services

If you use Hely's services or directly contact us, we process the following (personal) data in the context of our service, depending on your exact usage:

C) Data needed to identify you for Using Services 

As a user of the App, you may choose to travel with a shared car. To ensure that you are authorized to operate these vehicles, we need to verify your identity and the validity of your driving authorization. To make this as easy as possible, we ask you to scan a copy of your driver's license with our App and then take a 'selfie'. We then compare the ID photo with the selfie through digital identity analysis to establish that you truly belong to the shown ID. The validation of your identity is carried out by our Partner Onfido. We ask for your permission in the App before processing these data. We also perform a validation with the RDW on the validity of the driver's license and the associated driving authorization. We delete the scanned driver's license and photo as soon as your identity/driving authorization is established but always within 10 days. We do not use the data for other purposes. After making the scan, your social security number (BSN) is immediately automatically covered/masked using artificial intelligence techniques. Your BSN is not visible to us. Your signature is only used during the validation of the document to determine the authenticity of the document and is not further processed in our systems for other purposes. It is also possible to manually cover your BSN.

If the above scan method does not work or you do not wish to use this scan method, we can also check your data in another way: you can video call us (this video call is not recorded/saved). Contact our customer service department for this, see article 13.

For using these services, we take the following data from your driver's license: driver's license number, first and last name, and expiration date. We do this to prevent you from potentially unlawfully operating a vehicle.
