Privacy Statement

At Samen ICT, we highly value your privacy. Our motto is “What’s yours is yours and remains yours.” These are your data and your identity, and we aim to protect them wherever possible and use them with the utmost care when necessary. This privacy policy informs you about the privacy terms and guidelines we follow in our company, which apply, among other things, to the processing of personal data by Samen ICT and its partners.

WHO ARE WE? We are Samen ICT, located at Beneluxlaan 59, 2871HE Schoonhoven. We collaborate with several partners both within and outside Schoonhoven. We also have multiple visiting addresses, such as in Woerden and Nieuwegein. As the Samen ICT group, we handle the processing of personal data through this website responsibly and legally. If you have any privacy concerns, you can reach us by email at

PERSONAL DATA Personal data includes all information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, names and contact details of representatives of clients and partners. Information such as IP addresses, how you use our website, and which links you click on can also be considered personal data. The processing of personal data is subject to special legal regulations. When we process personal data of users or customers, we comply with the applicable laws and regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

OBJECTIVES AND ROLES The Samen ICT group processes personal data from different roles and for different purposes. These roles, data controller, and processor, are described in the GDPR. The data controller determines the purposes and means of processing personal data and is subject to numerous legal obligations. The processor processes personal data only on behalf of a third party, and certain legal obligations also apply to them, although these differ from those of a data controller. This difference is because, in the latter role, the use of personal data is largely determined by the data controller. The following list explains how we use and process your personal data from the perspective of a data controller. How we do this from the perspective of a processor may vary depending on the service you purchase from us. Details can be obtained through the usual contact channels.
