Privacy Policy (EN)

In a privacy policy you explain to your visitors or users in what way you are handling their personal data.

Almost every company collects personal data. And almost everything you do with that data (like saving, sorting or using) is a form of “processing”. As a processor of personal data, you are required to let your users/customers know what you do with their data. You give this information in a Privacy Policy.

De advocaat achter dit contract

Mr. Sjors Dobbelaar

What is a privacy policy?

A privacy policy is a document in which you explain to your users (or for webshops: your customers) which personal data you collect and what you do with it. Personal data concerns all data that allows you to identify a person. So this can be a name, e-mail address of even an IP-address.

In a privacy policy you can explain:

  • which personal data you collect;
  • how you use the personal data; and 
  • how you protect the personal data.

Why do I need a privacy policy?

Almost every company collects personal data. And almost everything you do with that data (like saving, sorting or using) is a form of “processing”. As a processor of personal data, you are required to let your users/customers know what you do with their data. You give this information in a Privacy Policy. The penalties on violations of the rules are high, even for small businesses.

Important tips and notes

Ask permission before sharing personal data with others!A lot of websites use a Privacy Policy, so users feel confident with providing their data. But: in some cases, users even have to give their consent for what you are going to do with their data. For example: sharing their data with third parties.

Please make sure that besides this privacy policy, you also have solid terms and conditions.

Legal background

In accordance with the Dutch Data Protection Act (DDPA), every website that processes personal data must have a Privacy Policy. The Dutch Data Protection Authority checks this and may force organisations to take action case of a violation. For example, they can impose a penalty if the Privacy Policy is incomplete or contains flaws.

Note!

This is a convenience translation from the original Dutch privacy policy. Although we try to assure that the agreement is without errors, we do not guarantee this in any way. Also, translated Dutch law concepts may mean something else in other jurisdictions. Note that this agreement is to be used in a Dutch context only.
