To protect your privacy and confidentiality of your data, SARA shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures. We take appropriate security measures to prevent abuse of and unauthorized access to personal data, such as access controls, 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 that not everyone within SARA has access to all your data. Our systems are designed in such way that employees only can see the data for which they are authorized.

Reporting incidents

If there is unexpected evidence that something has gone wrong with the protection of your personal data or we suspect that this is the case, then we will report this to the AP. If the violation of your personal data may have unfavorable or adverse consequences for you, we will inform you as soon as possible.


We assume that your data is always confidential by nature. Every employee of SARA and its participations is therefore obliged to observe confidentiality. This also applies to third parties hired by SARA or otherwise appointed to carry out work. Persons who are charged with carrying out technical work on our systems are also bound to secrecy. In short, everyone that has insight in your data is bounded by an obligation of confidentiality.

For how long do we keep your data?

SARA will not keep your data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we use it and is permitted by law. For how long certain data will be kept is dependent on the type of data and the purposes for which it is processed. The storage period can thus differ per purpose.

Disclosure to third parties

We will not disclose your personal information to any other third parties, unless we believe this is necessary for the execution of the agreement, if there is a legal obligation to do so or when you give us permission to do so. SARA can also be required to share personal data based on laws or regulations, based on a judgment of a competent court, or in case of fraud or abuse. If that is the case, SARA will cooperate.
