How do we determine the period for which your personal data is stored?

We keep personal data in any event for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes for which they have been collected.


The General Data Protection Regulation does not stipulate specific storage periods for personal data. Other legislation may specify minimum storage periods, however, which we must comply with. Such legislation includes the general requirement for businesses to keep records, as set out in the Dutch Civil Code, tax laws or laws governing financial enterprises in particular (such as the Dutch Financial Supervision Act).

Client data may be kept longer for various reasons, such as for risk management purposes, for security reasons or so that claims, investigations or legal proceedings can be handled properly. 

Where possible, such client data is stored in an archive that is separate from our day-to-day systems.
