Data breach

A data breach is when personal information of our customers, employees or relations is exposed by unauthorized persons to unlawful processing, disclosure or a loss. This can be the case, for example, when a laptop, phone or USB stick is lost / stolen or when a data file or system such as an e-mail or other application is hacked.

If a serious data breach occurs, Hoek Groothandel is obliged to report to the Dutch Data Protection Authority within 72 hours after observing the breach and possibly also to the people whose personal data has been leaked.

How we secure personal data

Hoek Groothandel takes the protection of your data seriously and takes appropriate measures to prevent misuse, loss, unauthorized access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorized modification of your personal data. Despite our security measures, we encourage customers to take measures themselves to prevent undesirable use or disclosure of their own data. In addition, Hoek Groothandel does not have a Data Protection Officer (Functionaris Gegevensbescherming), because this is not required according to the current regulation in line with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

The company is not a public organization and there is no large-scale processing of special personal data or the tracking of individuals.
