The risk of accidental theft, loss or unauthorized access, is reduced to a strict minimum. Unfortunately, reducing the risk to zero is an utopia. To ensure we reduce the risk to the minimum, Meiko made engagements with professional (IT) partners towards the protection of its customer’s data. If, however, unauthorized access is obtained, Meiko will take any possible measurement to reduce the damage to a minimum. If such situation of ‘data breaches’ occur, we recommend you to notify Meiko and the Privacy Commision/CBPL (commissie voor de bescherming van de persoonlijke levenssfeer) within 72h.
