Dutch Privacy Law


Privacy law has been hot for years with the advent of new technologies. Data is rightly seen as the new gold as can hold valuable information. Personal data is constantly shared automatically between companies sharing information on where are people located, what do they do, what do they buy, what do they find interesting. Organisations that automatically process personal data, everything between collection and destruction, are becoming increasingly aware of the power and danger of holding this data. The advent of the General Data Protection Regulation has made an important contribution to this. MAAK Advocaten familiarises organisations with Dutch privacy law and assists them in drawing up privacy policies, processing agreements, processing registers and advises on compliance with legal regulations.

Our Dutch privacy lawyers in the Netherlands have a great deal of experience with the General Data Protection Regulation and closely follow developments in the field of privacy law. If you are doing business internationally and personal data is automatically processed, it is good that you are advised by a lawyer. Together, we map out the data flows and determine the basis for the processing. Permission may have been granted by an individual, but there may also be a legitimate interest in processing personal data.

If personal data is processed on behalf of your organisation, but you determine the purpose and means, you remain responsible for the processing of these data. Or the party processing personal data on behalf of your organisation will be identified by our Dutch lawyers in the Netherlands. If that is the case, it is important that you have a processing agreement for these operations. Amongst other things, we will arrange agreements of the steps to be taken in the event of a data breach. Our lawyers will be happy to guide you further in the field privacy law.
