We advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children, to prevent that data of their under aged children will be collected without their permission.

  • If we are legally obliged to do so, such as data we need for our taxes.  


Legal grounds 

Legitimate interest 

Part of your personal data will be processed based on our legitimate interests. This concerns the processing of your IP-address when you use or website, to maintain our website and to obtain information about the quality and efficiency of our website. If you fill in our contact form on our website or submit a call-back request, we will also process your personal data, because we need to be able to respond to your contact request.  



For marketing purposes, for example for our newsletters, we will only use your personal data if you give us your permission. If you haven’t given your permission, your data will not be processed for marketing purposes, unless it concerns direct marketing for similar products or services for which you have already given your permission. It is also possible we will ask for your permission to place the cookies of our website.  


You have the right to withdraw your consent for certain processing of your personal data at any time. However, this will not affect the legality of the processing based on your first permission. You can revoke your permissions for  different processes by adjusting your settings on the cookie statement page.

This concerns decisions made by computer programs or systems, without a person (for example, a TLC Lawyers employee), being involved. TLC Lawyers uses the following computer programs or systems:

TLC Lawyers will not store your personal data for longer than strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which your data is collected. We use a (legal) retention period of 7 years.  


Sharing your personal data with third parties

You can send your request to ms. Kuipers (kuipers@…..). To be sure it is you, you will have to send a copy of your passport. Please anonymize your passport: your photo, MRZ (machine readable zone, the numbers at the bottom of your passport) and your personal number have to be made invisible black in this copy. We will respond to you request as soon as possible, at the latest within four weeks. 


TLC Lawyers would also like draw your attention to the fact you have the possibility to file a complaint at the national data protection authority: the Dutch Data Protection Authority (https://autoriteitpersoonsgegevens.nl/contact-met-de-autoriteit-persoonsgegevens-tip-ons.) 


How we protect your personal data 

TLC lawyers takes appropriate measures to prevent abuse, loss, unauthorized access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorized changes. Do you think your data is not properly protected? Please contact Ms. Kuipers (kuipers@…..).  


Report data breach 

A data breach is a breach of the security of personal data. This concerns access to, destruction, modification or the release of personal data without this being intended. A data breach not only covers the release (leakage of data), but also the unlawful processing of data. The severity of a data breach depends on: 

  • The size of the leak (for example the number of people involved); 
  • Which kind of data it concerns (an age is normally less serious than, for example, a social security number, a photo or health data)l 
  • The chance that the leak will actually lead to damage; 

In certain cases a data breach must be reported by our office to the Dutch Data Protection Authority. 



This privacy statement can be adjusted or changed. We advise you to check up on this statement with regularity.
