Accessing personal data stored by the intelligence and security services

Organisations in the Netherlands can process your personal data if they have a good reason for doing so. "Processing" is understood to mean the collection, recording, organisation and storage of your data. The Algemene Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdienst – AIVD (General Intelligence and Security Service) and the Militaire Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdienst – MIVD ( Defence Information and Security Service) collect personal data. They need this data in order to carry out their tasks. You can ask what data these services have stored about you.
