Privacy law


Privacy is a topic that is important to an increasing number of people. Every organisation has to deal with it; whether it is about properly marketing your product or service and/or guaranteeing the privacy of your employees. It is impossible to imagine business operations without this subject.

At the European level, the rules in the area of privacy have been laid down in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR contains numerous obligations that companies and organisations that process personal data must take into account. When the collection and processing of personal data does not comply with the regulations, the supervisory authority (the Dutch Data Protection Authority) can impose heavy fines. In addition, it can generate negative publicity.

We would like to help you on your way with a flyer in which the most important topics from the GDPR are dealt with in a simple and clear manner. With the help of the flyer you can determine what your position is and whether certain obligations could also apply to you.
