(Chamber of Commerce: 83526773) and Invest International Capital B.V. (Chamber of Commerce: 83526471), hereinafter referred to as “Invest International” or “us” or “we”. In order to provide its services to customers, Invest International processes company data. When processing this company data, we may process personal data as well. E.g. contact information, email addresses or UBO data. Invest International respects your privacy and processes your personal details with all due care and protect them very carefully in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations. This privacy statement contains information about the purposes and bases for the processing of your data. We advise you reading this statement carefully.
Invest International shall process your personal data only for the following purposes:
We won’t use or process your personal data for no reason. In accordance with the privacy legislation, this is only possible when there is a legal basis for the processing of your data. The legal grounds for processing personal data for the aforementioned purposes are:
You can object against the processing of your personal data for this purpose on the ground of your right to object. More information on the right to object will follow later on in this statement.
Whenever we request your personal data, we will inform you whether providing the personal data is necessary or mandatory and what the consequences will be, if any, if the personal data are not provided. Our leading principle is that we will not process any more personal data than what is (strictly) necessary for the purposes as described above.
The basic principle is that we never provide your data to third parties, with the exception of the following cases:
Your personal data may be shared with entities which are part of the Invest International group. These are, as mentioned, the following entities: Invest International B.V., Invest International Public Programmes B.V., Invest International Development B.V. and Invest International Capital B.V. Your personal data will only be shared with these entities if the sharing of personal data is necessary for one or more of the above purposes. Invest International does not provide personal data to third parties who intend to use this data for their own interest. However, the foregoing might differ when:
Your personal data will be processed within the borders of the European Union. If and insofar as your personal data are processed outside the borders of the European Union, the processing will only take place if the third country has an adequate level of protection. Countries have an adequate level of protection if an adequacy decision of the European Commission exists for the country. Click here for more information about the countries for which an adequacy decision has been issued. When the transfer cannot be based on an adequacy decision, Invest International will provide appropriate safeguards for the transfer of personal data to a third country. Transfers to third countries, which cannot be based on an adequacy decision, will only take place on the basis of binding corporate rules or standard contractual clauses.
Invest International does not use automatic decision-making and profiling.
We are obliged to retain personal data for a certain period of time. The retention period may vary from a few months to several years, depending on the applicable legislation and/or the duration of the agreement. Your data will never be kept longer than necessary or a legally required period. Data that we are obliged to retain on the basis of our administration obligation will be retained for 7 years.
Naturally, Invest International will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against loss or any kind of unauthorized processing. All data is treated confidentially in both organisational and technical areas.
Pursuant to the law on protection of personal data, you have various rights regarding your personal data. These rights are listed below.
You always have the possibility to file a complaint with the regulatory authority on Dutch privacy legislation, the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Dutch DPA). You can find their contact information on their website www.autoriteitpersoonsgegevens.nl.
We may unilaterally amend this privacy statement. These modifications will be announced on the Invest International website. Invest International may process your personal data for new purposes that are not yet listed in the overview in this privacy statement. In that case we will contact you before we will use your data for these new purposes in order to inform you of the changes in our regulations for the protection of personal data and to offer you the opportunity to refuse participation.
