What are your rights with regard to the personal data processed by Tolsma-Grisnich?

You have various rights under the law. These are briefly explained below.

Right of inspection:

You are entitled to inspect personal data processed by Tolsma-Grisnich.

Right of correction and deletion

You are entitled to have your data changed or even deleted if the data is not/no longer correct, or if the processing thereof is not/no longer justified.

Right of objection

The right of objection means that you may object to certain processing of your personal data because of your specific situation.

Right of restriction

Under certain circumstances, you are entitled to restrict the processing of your data. Briefly put, this means that Tolsma-Grisnich may ‘freeze’ your data temporarily. You can invoke this right in four situations:

· Pending the assessment of a correction request;

· If data should actually be deleted, but you do not want this;

· If Tolsma-Grisnich no longer requires the data while you still need the data to prepare for a legal action;

· Pending the assessment of an objection.

Right to data portability

You are entitled to receive (back) the data you provided to Tolsma-Grisnich in a standard file format. This right only applies for personal data from you that we process based on your consent or a contract we have concluded with you. Moreover, this right only applies for data that we have already processed in digital form (so not hardcopy processing). You are free to subsequently pass on that data to another party.

Withdrawal of consent

If we process your data based on your consent, once given, you are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time. We will then stop processing immediately.

The withdrawal of the consent does not have a retroactive effect; all processing that has already taken place will therefore remain legitimate.

Exercising the rights

In principle, you may exercise the rights at no cost, unless in the case of misuse. You can exercise the rights via the contact details given below.

Response times

We endeavour to respond to your questions/requests within one month. If it takes longer to respond to your question/request, we will inform you accordingly within one month. Depending on the complexity of the requests and/or the number of requests, the response time may run up to three months in total.


Tolsma-Grisnich may ask for further proof of identity in relation to any questions/requests. Tolsma-Grisnich does this to prevent personal data being sent to the wrong party or that changes are wrongfully applied to the personal data. In order to process your request as efficiently as possible Tolsma-Grisnich asks in advance that you to send a copy of your ID along with your request. Clearly state on the document that it is a copy; for whom and what purpose it is provided, and the date on which you issue it. The copy of your ID will only be used to establish your identity and will be destroyed immediately thereafter.

Individual consideration for each request

We would like to point out to you that the rights described above are not absolute rights. There may be circumstances whereby Tolsma-Grisnich is unable to honour a request. In all cases, Tolsma-Grisnich will assess each request on its own merits. If Tolsma-Grisnich is unable to honour a specific request, you will, of course, be informed of the reasons. In such case, you may then apply to the court.

The right of objection against the use of data for (direct) marketing purposes is an absolute right. Requests to unsubscribe from our commercial messages will therefore be honoured.

Tolsma-Grisnich has not appointed a DPO. Do you have a complaint about Tolsma-Grisnich’s processing of personal data?
