How does Bright Cape handle your personal data?

Careful, safe and confidential. That is how we deal with your personal data. To this end, Bright Cape has drawn up a policy document. 


Supervision of the processing of personal data

The rules on protecting your personal data are laid down in the General Data Protection Regulation. The Authority for the Protection of Personal Data (AP) supervises compliance with this law. If you believe that the provisions of this Privacy Statement are not or are insufficiently complied with by us, you have the right to submit a complaint to the AP. The contact details of the AP are: 


Bezuidenhoutseweg 30
2594 AV The Hague



To protect your privacy and the confidentiality of your data, Bright Cape takes appropriate technical and organizational security measures. We take security measures to prevent misuse of and unauthorized access to personal data, such as applying access control, firewalls and secure servers and encryption of certain types of data, such as financial information and other sensitive data. In addition to securing the systems, we also want to ensure that within Bright Cape not everyone has access to all your data. Our systems are set up in such a way that employees can only see the information for which they are authorised. 


Reporting of incidents

If unexpectedly it turns out that something has not gone right with the protection of your personal data after all, or we suspect that this is the case, we will report this to the AP. If the breach of your personal data has potentially adverse or detrimental consequences for you, we will let you know as soon as possible. 



We assume that your information is always confidential in nature. Every employee of Bright Cape and its participations is therefore required to maintain confidentiality. This also applies to third parties hired or otherwise appointed by Bright Cape to perform tasks. Persons charged with carrying out technical work on our systems are also obliged to maintain confidentiality. In short, everyone who has access to your details is bound to secrecy. 


How long do we keep your data?

Bright Cape does not keep your data longer than is necessary for the purposes for which your data is processed and than is legally permitted. How long certain information is kept depends on the nature of the information and the purposes for which it is processed. The retention period may therefore differ per purpose. 


Disclosure to third parties

We explicitly do not provide your personal data to third parties, unless this is necessary for the execution of the agreement, if required by law or if you have given us your permission to do so. Bright Cape may also be obliged to provide personal details on the basis of legislation or regulations, on the basis of a ruling by a competent court, or in the case of fraud or abuse. If this is the case, Bright Cape will provide its cooperation. 


Disclosing data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA))

Bright Cape will not pass on your information to a company or office in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
