Privacy and Cookie Statement

What we have, know and store about you!

We understand that your trust in us is FITNESS-TRADER’s most important asset (hereinafter referred to as “FT”, “we” or “us”). As such, your privacy is essential for us. This privacy policy (hereinafter referred to as “Privacy Policy”) is applicable, inter alia, to ( 1 ) our websites www.fitness-trader.com and www.trader.fitness (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”), ( 2 ) visiting our offices or warehouses and ( 3 ) all (commercial) relations between FT and its customers, prospects and business partners.

This Privacy Policy includes information about the personal data collected by FITNESS-TRADER BV, as well as the manner in which FITNESS-TRADER BV uses and processes this personal data.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and Conditions, establishes the basis for the processing of personal data by FITNESS-TRADER BV.

1. Who we are

FITNESS-TRADER BV is a professional reseller of secondhand, used and refurbished fitness equipment, who sells, and buys used fitness machines all over Europe, but also operates outside the European Union. So, when you’re looking for an affordable supplier in second hand fitness equipment, FT is a good place to start for finding sharply priced used and refurbished fitness equipment. The main reason for looking for fitness equipment occasions is that companies/customers can get refurbished ‘used’ equipment for a lot less money instead of buying new equipment. This can make all the difference in spending your available budget or investment.

FITNESS-TRADER BV is based in De Dieze 6a, 8253 PS Dronten, Flevoland Netherlands, registered with the Trade Registry in Lelystad under no. 68712677 and having the Unique VAT Identification Number NL857559266B01 and is responsible for processing your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We ensure that we collect and process the personal data of customers and potential customers of the website and recipients of newsletters and business communications in accordance with applicable personal data privacy laws.

This Privacy Policy explains what kind of information we collect, how we collect, use, process and disclose it and how you can manage and control the use of your personal data, so please read it carefully.


We define “Customer” or “Prospect” as any person or company who accesses our sites and, places an order for used fitness equipment and uses our services. Anyone wishing to become a customer must be at least 18 years of age.

According to the legislation on the processing of personal data, personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. An identifiable person is the person who can be identified directly or indirectly.

If you are not a Customer and receive a gift voucher from FT, we will need to process your personal data so that you can benefit from our services. We understand the importance of data confidentiality and to ensure that data processing is conducted in accordance with the law, we will send you an email containing detailed information about your data processing, rights and options. The mechanism implemented by us in this respect will allow you to give you the consent to process your data in order to benefit from our services and to give you the consent only for the marketing communications you feel comfortable with.

2. Parental Agreement

Minors and their rights and freedoms are important to FT and we take all reasonable steps to protect them.

Only persons of 18 year and older can create an account on the FITNESS-TRADER website(s) for requesting quotations or for purchasing fitness equipment and accessories directly online.

In regard to this restriction for minors under the 18 years not to be able to buy equipment or request a quotation and also by the validation during the account creation it’s clearly not possible for us to do business with persons under the age of 18.
