Where is your data used?

Thirdwave Privacy Compliance Solutions is based in the Netherlands. The processing of your personal data is therefore bound to the high protection standards of the Data Protection Act 1998 and - as of 25 May 2018 - the General Data Protection Regulation.

All critical suppliers of Thirdwave Privacy Compliance Solutions, including the hosting provider, are based in Europe. The services of Google (Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager) are used to measure and analyze the use of the website, in which case the data is anonymous.

In that case, use the message field in the contact form to indicate that this is a request for inspection. In addition, please enter your full name and the email address and telephone number where we can reach you during the day in the contact form. In the same way, you can also send us a request to update or delete your data.

Please note that we will ask you for additional information before we can comply with your request for access. In this way, we prevent malicious parties from accessing your personal data without your knowledge.

Thirdwave Privacy Compliance Solutions does not have to comply with your request if this is impossible or requires a disproportionate effort.

Security of personal data

Thirdwave Privacy Compliance Solutions treats your personal data with care and, together with any suppliers that may be involved, ensures the appropriate organizational and technical security of personal data. However, given the nature of the Internet as a global public communications network, we can never guarantee that personal data, whether during transmission or stored on our systems or otherwise under our control, are absolutely safe from unauthorized access by third parties, such as hackers.
