Privacy statement Merchant Banking
Your privacy is important to us. We therefore handle your personal data responsibly and with care, because they convey a lot about you. It is essential for us to keep your information safe. Our staff are subject to strict rules on the handling of information, and we maintain high security standards. We do not sell personal data to third parties.
Using your personal data
We process the personal data of all our clients, including yours. If you represent a client / a legal entity, we also process your personal data. We need your personal data for several reasons: in order to accept you as a client, but also to offer you products and services. Examples of personal data processed by us include contact data, or information about your income if needed. Moreover, we have to monitor your transactions in order to comply with certain legal obligations. If you are no longer a client of ours, we destroy your personal information after a certain period.
We also process personal data when attracting new clients or promoting new products or services. This typically involves limited data, such as contact data. If you are not yet a client, we can store a limited amount of personal information about you with a view to contacting you in the near future. When we contact you, we will ask you for permission to keep a record of your personal data.
Accessing, changing and improving personal data
We want to be transparent about how we handle your personal data and we feel it is important for the information we have on file to be correct. You can therefore request access to the personal data that we have about you, and amend, supplement and improve them. You can object to us processing your personal data. They are your data, and you can therefore request that we hand them over to you. The law will determine whether we can meet your request.
Sharing personal data with third parties
We use your personal data in connection with our products and services to you. We may share your personal data with third parties, but we will only do so in the interest of honouring our contract with you or to ensure efficient business operations. For example, we work with a party that sends mail to our clients on our behalf. We provide this third party with the personal data it needs for that purpose. We make sure that your personal data are as safe with them as they are with us.
We also have to meet legal obligations that require us to submit information, including personal data, for example to public authorities or to regulatory bodies such as market supervisory authorities. Sometimes we also have to submit personal data to regulatory bodies or authorities abroad.
