With the following, we give effect to the requirement to provide information to the person whose personal data Het Hoofdkantoor processes (the data subject), as set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

  • consent of the data subject; and
  • legitimate interests.

Sharing of personal data with third parties

Het Hoofdkantoor only shares your personal data with third parties insofar as necessary for the performance of its services and for the purposes set out above.
