Kolster BV with registered offices at Rijneveld 122 A, 2771 XR Boskoop, is responsible for the processing of personal data as set out in this privacy statement.

Personal data of customers or visitors that we collect and process

Kolster B.V. breeding believes that privacy is very important, and we highly respect it. We therefore handle all personal data available to us with great care. We will treat the data of customers, visitors (to our website) and others as confidential. We thereby comply with the General Data Protection Regulation.

Personal data that we process

Kolster BV only collects and processes your personal data if you make use of our services and products or if you provide this data to us yourself. Unless explicitly agreed or required by law, we will never share personal data with third parties.

A list of the personal data that we process:

  • First name and surname
  • Address details
  • Telephone numbers
  • E-mail address
  • IP address

Other personal data the you actively provide, e.g. by creating a profile on this website, in correspondence and by telephone

  • Location data
  • Data about your activities on our website
  • List of the customer’s contact details via an app
  • Internet browser and device type
  • Bank account number

Sensitive personal data that we process

Our website and/or service is not intended to collect data about website visitors who are aged under 16 unless they have the permission of their parents or guardian. However, we cannot check whether a visitor is aged over 16. We therefore recommend that parents should be involved with their children's online activities in order to prevent data about children being collected without parental permission. If you are sure that we have collected personal data about a minor without permission, please contact us at and we will remove this information.

The purpose for which we process personal data and on the basis of which principle

Kolster B.V. processes your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To handle your payment
  • To send our newsletter and/or advertising leaflet
  • To be able to call or e-mail you if this is required in order to provide our service
  • To inform you about changes to our services and products
  • To offer you the opportunity to create an account
  • To deliver goods and services to you
  • Kolster BV analyses your behaviour on the website in order to be able to improve the website and match the products and services offered to your preferences.
  • Kolster BV also processes personal data if we are required to do so by law, such as information we require for a tax return.

The legal basis for collecting, processing and using your personal data is only provided on the basis of the permission obtained from you, a statutory basis or arising from the execution of and/or compliance with a contract concluded with you.


Kolster BV breeding handles your personal data carefully. In order to prevent unauthorised persons from gaining access to it, we have implemented technical and organisational measures that provide an appropriate level of security. In this context we have ensured the security of our website, our IT systems and the physical spaces where personal data is stored, whilst only authorised personnel can view your personal data.

How long we retain personal data

Kolster BV will not retain your personal data for longer than is strictly necessary in order to achieve the purposes for which your data is collected. For a newsletter this is until you indicate that you no longer wish to receive the newsletter. If you have indicated that you wish to continue receiving (future) information from us, we will retain data in our system exclusively for that purpose

Sharing personal data with third parties

Kolster BV will only provide data to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of our agreement with you or in order to comply with a legal obligation.

Accessing, modifying or deleting data

You have the right to view, correct or delete your personal data.
