How does Ocean’s 500 handle your personal data?
Carefully, safely and confidentially. That is how we handle your personal data. Ocean’s 500 has drawn up a policy document covering this.

Supervision of the processing of your personal data
The rules governing the protection of your personal data are set out in the General Data Protection Regulation. The Personal Data Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens – AP) ensures that the regulations are adhered to.

In order to protect your privacy and the confidentiality of your data Ocean’s 500 takes appropriate technical and organisational measures. We take security measures in order to prevent misuse of and unauthorised access to personal data, such as: control over access, firewalls and secure servers, and encryption of certain types of data, such as financial information and other sensitive information.

Besides protecting the system we do not want everyone within Ocean’s 500 to have access to your data. Our systems are designed in such a way that employees only have access to information for which they are authorised. 

Reporting of incidents
Should it unexpectedly emerge that something has gone wrong with the protection of your personal data, or if we should suspect that this is the case, then we will report this to the AP. If the breach of security concerning your personal data could have adverse consequences for you we will inform you about it as soon as possible.

This also applies to third parties hired in by Ocean’s 500 or in some other way engaged to carry out work. People charged with performing technical work on our systems are also bound by a duty of secrecy. Put briefly, everyone who has access to your data is bound by a duty of secrecy.

the data and the purpose for which it is processed. The retention period can therefore vary, depending on the purpose.
