Privacy statement

You provide us with personal data for the handling of your case. For example, if you send us documents, if you call us, e-mail us, write a letter or if you speak to someone from our office. We think it is important that you know that you can rely on us to handle your (personal) data carefully and confidentially. We explain this in more detail in this statement.

What are personal data?
Personal data is any information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This means that information is either directly about someone or can be traced back to this person. The fact that it must concern a natural person means that data of deceased persons or organizations are not personal data. Examples of personal data are: your name, address details and your telephone number. Sensitive data such as someone’s race, religion or data about your health are also referred to as special personal data. These need extra protection.

Whose personal data do we process?
We process personal data of our clients and relations. This is part of our business operations.

What do we use your personal data for?
The personal data you have provided to us will only be processed for the following purposes:

  • to do the agreed work properly, efficiently and effectively;
  • to contact you for the purpose of our services;
  • to contact you if you have applied for a job with us;
  • for informational purposes (including sending and invitations to seminars/events).

We only use the personal data for these purposes and never pass on the personal data to third parties without your permission or on the basis of another basis. If we are allowed to pass on the data with permission or on the basis of another basis, we will impose the same protection and security measures on the third party as we use ourselves.

The processing takes place on the basis of one of the following bases:

  1. the processing is necessary for entering into and the performance of the agreement between you and Booij Legal & Tax;
