What does Ligo offer you?

Privacy Policy

A privacy policy is a policy which informs those from whom you collect personal data (also known as the "data subject") about the collection of the data and their rights. This is legally required and the GDPR requires your privacy policy to be completely in order. You can easily tailor your privacy policy at Ligo. Fill in a questionnaire and our software generates your privacy policy that you can download in both Word and PDF.

Cookie Policy

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on the computer, smartphone or tablet of the user of the website. With a cookie information is collected or stored about the use of the website or about (the device of) the user. In practice, website administrators explain what cookies are in their privacy statements. However, this is not sufficient in most cases. We therefore advise you to draw up a separate cookie statement in addition to the privacy statement. We have our cookie policies fully GDPR-proof so that you are well after May 25 2018.


A processor agreement is legally required when you collect personal data from your customers or users and you then call on another party to have this personal data processed for you. The processor agreement excludes that the other party may process personal data for its own purposes. You also lay down in a processor agreement how the other party (the processor) has to deal with the personal data that you have collected as the controller. The processor agreement has been changed in the 'processor agreement' by the GDPR. You can make the processor agreement so that it is tailored to the GDPR.

Additional Information

The GDPR is a new European privacy law. The GDPR sets very high demands on how your company deals with the privacy of people whose data your company has. This personal data must be highly secured under the GDPR. You may also only store or collect personal data when there is a good reason for doing so. This means that you usually have to ask someone for permission before you can store or collect his or her personal data. Also you have to ensure that the period for which the data are stored is limited to a strict minimum. If you do not meet these requirements, you can get high fines! It is therefore very important that you comply with the strict requirements of the GDPR. Ligo is happy to help you with our complimentary GDPR scan.
The GDPR is important for you as an entrepreneur because you can get high fines if you do not comply. Moreover, you can incur reputational damage and loss of business when you are not in compliance! What consumer wants to be a customer at a company that is known to not to take their privacy seriously? The GDPR applies to every entrepreneur who keeps or collects personal data. Even if you are a freelancer, you have to stick to the GDPR. Do you have an (ANBI) foundation and do not try to make a profit at all? Even then you have to keep to the GDPR! So be careful: every company and every organization must comply with the GPDR.
As an entrepreneur you must meet strict requirements. Often you may only collect and store personal data when you obtain permission from the person. Receiving valid permission is more difficult than it seems. In addition, you must be able to demonstrate that someone has given you valid permission at the moment that the Dutch Data Protection Authority checks. And if the permission is revoked, you have to stop the processing of the personal data immediately. Collecting personal data without permission could lead to fines of up to 20 million euros.
As an entrepreneur you do not only have to meet strict requirements, there are also far-reaching rights of the people whose personal data you process. These parties, for example, have the right to see what personal information your company has of them, they have the right to ask you to restore and delete your personal data and they have the right to "data portability". The latter means that concerned customers have the right to ask you to transfer the personal data that you have from them to another company or, if this is not possible, to return this personal data to them. If those involved can not put these rights into practice with you, for example because you do not know which personal data are from whom, you will not comply with the AVG. That means that you can get high fines!
May 25th may still seem far away. You could wait a little longer to start your preparations for the AVG; however, we do not recommend this. The GDPR rights of the parties involved go far, the fines for entrepreneurs and organizations are high and entrepreneurs and organizations have to comply with very strict requirements. We therefore advise you to start as soon as possible with your preparations for the GDPR. At Ligo you can do this for free and easily by taking our GDPR scan and let us help you through the process.
