* The question was originally phrased by the source as: "Sommige veiligheidsmaatregelen hebben een effect op de privacy van burgers, of kunnen zorgen voor extra ongemak. Om dreigingen zoals terroristische aanslagen tegen te gaan, neemt de overheid veiligheidsmaatregelen. Heb je begrip voor onderstaande maatregelen?" (English: some security measures have an effect on the privacy of citizens, or could cause extra inconvenience. To prevent threats such as terrorist attacks, the government takes security measures. Do you have understanding for the measures below?)
