Our services / Privacy statement

You are legally required to inform your clients and visitors clearly about what privacy-sensitive data you collect and for what purpose.

This is stipulated in the Personal Data Protection Act [Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens] and is usually set out in a privacy statement. Visitors should be able to find your privacy statement easily. You could, for instance, include a hyperlink to your privacy statement at the bottom of each page if you collect statistical data about visitors, and refer to your privacy statement in the ordering process.


A privacy statement should in any case contain the following:

  1. Identity. You are required to state the name of your business, including your business address details plus a contact address for privacy-related questions.
  2. Purposes. For what purpose are personal data processed? Examples are “performance of the purchase agreement” or “website protection and optimization” (such as recording IP addresses).
  3. Use of cookies. If your website uses cookies (as is virtually always the case), you are required to explain what cookies are and what you do with them, even if only to allow people to stay logged in.
  4. Newsletters. If clients are placed on a newsletter subscriber list, they are required to provide their explicit consent. Each newsletter should also state how to unsubscribe.
  5. Data access and correction. Clients are always entitled to access their data. They may request that their personal data be corrected or deleted. Data may only be deleted if no longer relevant.
  6. Protection. You are required to explain what technical and organizational measures you have put in place to protect personal data against loss or any type of illegal processing. When placing orders you are, for instance, required to protect the Internet connection with SSL. Other aspects to bear in mind are passwords for the database itself.

Would you like to rest assured that your privacy policy is legally correct? Ask our lawyers. If another party processes data on your behalf, you may need a processor’s agreement.
