Personal data are details revealing information about an individual, such as a name, address or telephone number.
This refers to anything that Van Lanschot Kempen may do with personal data, e.g. collecting, viewing, destroying or storing.
Your privacy is important to us. We comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its Dutch Act to enact the GDPR. We handle personal data responsibly and with due care, and will never sell personal data to third parties.
We process personal data of shareholders and their representatives, visitors to our website, interested investors and anyone else interested in Van Lanschot Kempen and/or their representatives.

The table at the bottom of this page (pdf) shows the categories of personal data that we can process, depending on the situation.
It is crucially important that your and our information is safe and secure, and our security measures comply with relevant standards. The Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens (the Dutch Data Protection Authority, Dutch DPA) supervises all our security measures.
A data breach implies that personal data might end up where they do not belong. We report any data breaches to the Dutch DPA, but will not do so if there is no risk to you. We will also inform you when necessary of any risks you might run. Risks include such things as identity theft or fraud. In such cases we will let you know what has happened and what the repercussions are or may be for you. We will also tell you about the measures we have taken to mitigate any adverse consequences.
This section describes what your rights are with regards to your personal data. The law determines which requests we can honour. Please be aware that we cannot always assist you.
You can ask a question by contacting the personal data protection officer at email@example.com. We will reply as soon as possible. Questions are answered free of charge unless dealing with them constitutes an exceptional burden, for instance if you keep repeating the same question within a short period of time. We will advise you beforehand if we will charge you for dealing with your question.
You have the right to ask Van Lanschot Kempen to amend or supplement personal data if these are incorrect or incomplete.
You have the right to ask Van Lanschot Kempen to show you the personal data we have collected about you and to receive a copy of your personal data. You also have the right to ask how we process your personal data, including the purpose of such processing and any categories of personal data.
You have the right to obtain deletion of your personal data, for instance if the personal data are no longer necessary or if you have withdrawn permission for using your personal data.
You have the right to object to certain types of personal data processing. This is only possible if we base such a process on a legitimate interest (we set out when this is the case under ‘9. For what purposes do we process personal data?’), in cases of direct marketing or for personal data informing statistics.
You have the right to ask for a temporary halt to processing of your personal data, for instance if we, at your request, look into the correctness and/or completeness of personal data or if we process personal data without being allowed to. You also have a right to request this if you think you need the data for legal proceedings or if you have objected to processing.

An individual has the right to object, for personal reasons, to us processing personal data based on this interest.
Van Lanschot Kempen’s promotion and marketing activities, such as roadshows, mainly aim to reach potential new shareholders and to maintain relations with existing shareholders, by Investor Relations for instance. We are permitted to process personal identification data and electronic identification data for such promotion and marketing activities; we have a company interest in promotion and marketing, as these support Van Lanschot Kempen’s corporate activities.

Fraud investigations are another way to ensure the security and integrity of the financial sector, and third parties may be invited to help conduct such investigations, e.g. lawyers or forensic accountants.

We use an independent party to receive voting instructions from shareholders looking to vote at our general or extraordinary meetings of shareholders.
