How we secure personal data

WLDC takes the protection of your data seriously and takes appropriate measures to prevent misuse, loss, unauthorized access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorized modification. If you have the impression that your data is not properly secured or there are indications of misuse, please contact us at info@welovedutchcheese.com.

WLDC has taken the following measures to secure your personal information: 

  • TLS (formerly SSL): We send your data via a secure internet connection. You can see this by the address bar ‘https’ and the padlock in the address bar. We support TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3.
  • DKIM, SPF and DMARC are three internet standards that we use to prevent you from receiving e-mails on our behalf that contain viruses, are spam or are intended to obtain personal (login) data. 
  • DNSSEC is an additional security (additional to DNS) for converting a domain name to its associated IP address; it is provided with a digital signature. You can have that signature checked automatically. In this way, we prevent you from being redirected to a false IP address.
