You have the right to request a copy (register extract) of the personal data we have about you. This can be done free of charge once a year. You have the right to have incorrect or incomplete information about you corrected as well as the possibility of having your information deleted when the information is no longer relevant for the original purpose. However, there may be legal obligations that prevent us from immediately deleting parts of your information. These obligations can come from accounting and tax legislation, banking and money laundering legislation, but also from consumer law legislation. In such cases, we block the data we are obliged to save from being used for purposes other than fulfilling such legal obligations. You have the right to submit any complaints about the processing of your personal data to the national supervisory authority.
