About our privacy policy

To be able to share cars via MyWheels, we need you to provide us with personal data. This privacy policy describes what data we process, what purposes this data is used for, and the parties with whom we share the data. We also explain how we store the data and what your rights are in relation to the personal data made available to us. This privacy policy applies to the use of the services provided by MyWheels.

These terms and conditions entered into force on 5 August 2019; the publication of a new version ends the validity of all previous versions.

MyWheels uses automated decision-making processes to verify your account on the basis of your data, so that you can hire a car.

4. With whom do we share your personal data?

We will never make your details available to third parties for commercial purposes. However, MyWheels is helped by a number of other service providers. We make clear agreements with these service providers and set them down in processing agreements. We share your personal data with the following parties:

  • MessageBird: a company based in the Netherlands for sending text messages. All text messages relating to reservations that you receive from MyWheels are sent via the MessageBird servers.

  • Pay.nl: a company based in the Netherlands that processes iDEAL payments, reimbursements, and direct debits.

  • Invers: a company based in Germany that provides cars with connectivity so that their location can be communicated and opened and locked with a smartphone and/or OV chip card.

  • Interswitch: if you telephone the MyWheels support department outside office hours, it is Interswitch who answers. Interswitch is a company based in the Netherlands for outsourcing customer services.

  • Nationaal Incasso Bureau: if you do not pay an outstanding invoice on time and do not respond to payment reminders, we transfer your personal data to the Nationaal Incasso Bureau, a company based in the Netherlands with an AFM licence.

  • Marketing software: for marketing purposes, we use MailChimp, Google, and Facebook software tools.

  • Competent authorities: MyWheels makes personal data known to competent authorities if legally required to do so or if it is strictly necessary for the prevention, detection, or prosecution of criminal acts and fraud.

Every MyWheels employee who has access to your personal data has signed a confidentiality declaration.

5. How do we keep your personal data secure?

Your personal data are stored in the Netherlands on secure servers of Site4U; our servers are not shared with other websites. MyWheels uses technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your personal data against loss and unauthorised access.

6. How can you view, modify, or delete your personal data?

Would you like to know what personal data about you we have registered? If so, you may use your 'Right of access'. Send an access request to [email protected]. You will receive a response within four weeks of receipt of your request.

You see much of your personal data when you log into MyWheels - you can also modify your personal data there. Any personal data that you are unable to modify yourself can be altered by our support employees. Contact them on [email protected]. You will receive a response within four weeks of receipt of your request.

Send your request for deletion of your personal data to [email protected]. You will receive a response within four weeks of receipt of your request. We will delete your personal data if there are no compelling reasons not to do so. Compelling reasons could include outstanding invoices or being on an exclusion list.

If we cannot, either wholly or in part, establish to which personal data a request to view, modify, or delete relates, we will ask you to further clarify your request. We will not continue to proceed with your request until you have given such additional clarification.

7. How long do we keep your personal data?

If you do not submit any request to delete your personal data, your account with MyWheels will remain active. If you do not log onto MyWheels for seven years, we will automatically delete your personal data. Would you like to use MyWheels after your data has been deleted? In that case, you can create a new account.

It's our belief that we can keep the Netherlands on the move with just one million cars. We can do our bit by promoting the use of shared cars. Because the more cars we share, the fewer cars we need to own. If there’s always a shared car just around the corner, you can go wherever you want, whenever you want. MyWheels. Only benefits.
