Privacy Statement

We know that you trust us, and the service we offer. In order to make our service optimal, we need to handle personal data. We value your privacy and exercise a strict privacy policy, adhering to the conditions of the Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming (General Data Protection Regulations). This Privacy Statement informs you about what information we collect about you when you use our websites or our services, visit our campsites and/or register with KDC, and why we gather this information.

Want to know more?

If you wish to know more, such as where your information is stored, or who to contact if you want to delete your data, read more down below.


Our campsites are fitted with security cameras. This is important for your safety, as well as that of our colleagues and the other guests. All recordings are erased after four weeks, unless there are good reasons to keep them, such as a police investigation.


During a visit to one of our campsites you may use our WiFi. From the moment you log in on our WiFi network, information on your usage is collected automatically. For example, the identification number (MAC address) of your device. This information is deleted after one year. It is collected by KDC in order to prevent misuse. In case of illegal activity involving our WiFi network, access to the network from the device used will be blocked.


KDC use cookies and similar techniques on its websites (kennemerduincampings.nl, campingdelakens.nl, campingbakkum.nl and campinggeversduin.nl). Cookies are small files that are stored on the device used to visit our website, such as a computer, tablet, smartphone or smartwatch. When referring to "cookies" below, we mean cookies and similar techniques.

Cookies enable us to recognise your browser. This is handy, because it means you won't have to keep putting in your data and preferences, or adjust or tweak your settings. This ensures that our website functions better, and gives us insight in how visitors use our website. Cookies also enable other parties to gauge what you may be interested in, and which adverts are likely to be irrelevant and can be deleted.

Cookies do not compromise the security of your computer. There are several kinds of cookies:

  • Functional cookies

These are necessary for the correct functioning of the website. For example, they make that the information you desire is displayed quickly and correctly, every time you visit our website. The use of functional cookies does not require consent.

  • Analytical cookies

We use these in order to analyse how or website is used, such as how often it is visited, on what page you enter our site, and which pages are clicked on most often. If cookies for analytics do not significantly impact privacy, consent is not required; if they do, we need to ask your consent.

  • Tracking cookies

This type of cookie enables us to track the way you surf our site, so that we and advertisers on our site can display personalised online adverts and content only.

These cookies remain on your device for a maximum of twelve months after your last visit. You can always disable the cookies, or remove them from your device. The way this is done is different for different internet browsers and devices. If you decide to remove the cookies, it is possible that the website does not function optimally and that you cannot use certain functions.


When booking online, your transaction data is registered in order to arrange payment. For taxation purposes we are obliged to store the details of every booking for seven years.

When using a credit card, we may carry out a fraud check, depending on the amount payable. This involves checking if the credit card may have been used or can be used for fraudulent reasons. We do this based on the country of issue, postcode and country of the credit card holder. If the credit card fails this check, we will let you know. In such a case the card cannot be used to pay the owed amount, and you will need to pay in another way. This information is stored for 90 days.

To book online you may also log into the 'My Environment" via your My-KDC account, so that you do not need to give your details again. If you do this, we link your booking details to your My-KDC account.


By downloading one of the KDC apps (Fotolens or Duinsafari), you carry us with you at all times.

When you use a KDC app, we register your IP or MAC address, as well as information about how you are using the app. This information enables us to see how the apps are used, and how we may improve them. We keep this information for one year. In addition cookies are used to ensure the app works as well as possible. Please read the section about Cookie Policy.


Our campsite regularly organise activities, and it is important to know who participates in an activity. This will also enable us to relay information about the event to participants, such as time and place, and send a reminder shortly before the activity begins.

In addition to this, it can be very educational for us to see what kind of guest was interested in what kind of activity, which is why we ask for your name, date of birth, e-mail address and telephone number when you wish to take part in an activity. We store this information for two years.

If you have a My-KDC account, your participation in activities can be coupled to your account.


When you book with us, we'll create an online account for you, containing your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, family members and dates of your stay. We need this information in order to complete your booking.

As soon as you have a My-KDC account, you can indicate if you wish to receive information by e-mail. This way we can keep you up to date when we have extras in store (new products, unique offers, inspiring workshops) or when there is anything else we think you should be informed of.

Your account also enables you to see how much you have paid, and any amount still owed.

Your account will be removed seven years after you last use it.


If you wish to be informed about new exceptional products, offers or inspiration, you can subscribe to receive the Campsite Newsletter. We register your name and e-mail address so you can receive the newsletter.

In order to make the newsletter as relevant as possible, we may ask you a few questions.

Every newsletter contains instructions about how to unsubscribe.


In order to book you in for a stay on one of our campsites, we need some information about you, such as your name, telephone number, address, e-mail address, date of birth and the composition of your family/party. This information will be used to ensure your holiday will be the best it can be, and to contact you in case there are questions during your stay with us.

During your stay you may be filmed or photographed by our staff, looking for material for promotion of the campsite. They will always ask your written permission by filling in a Quitclaim form. Any promotional photographs or videos may be used for a period of 3 years.

We will automatically set up a My-KDC account for you, or couple your booking to your existing account. You can read more about this in your My-KDC account.


A whole KDC team is ready to assist you every day, to help, to answer questions or solve problems. Our staff can be reached in several ways, such as by telephone, via the chat box on our website, by e-mail, social media and in person, during your stay at one of our campsites.

If you have a question or a complaint, we'll need some information about you, such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number and any additional information necessary to deal with your question or complaint. We also use this information to inform you about any progress pertaining to your question or complaint. When the matter is resolved, we keep this information for one year. This enables us to better serve you, if should you need to call on us again.
