In accordance with its legal obligations, Gimv NV ("Gimv") collects certain information regarding its shareholders in an electronic share register. If this data constitutes personal data, Gimv acts as the controller with regard to this personal data and will treat the personal data in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and all other local laws that might apply.
Gimv may appoint external service providers and suppliers ("processors") to provide certain services that process the personal data (e.g. IT service providers).
The personal data may also be passed on to other recipients, such as public authorities, law-enforcement authorities, judicial authorities, lawyers, advisers or other service providers, auditors or other third parties, if Gimv judges in good faith that such transfer is reasonably necessary or useful (e.g. in order to comply with a legal obligation or procedure, to ensure the safety and security of infrastructure, activities or the public).
Gimv will not pass on any personal data to other third parties or outside the European Economic Area without your knowledge, unless Gimv is legally prohibited from informing you about this.
Gimv will only process the personal data to the extent and for as long as it is legally obliged to do so.
A shareholder can make the following requests at any time with regard to his/her personal data, by contacting the Gimv Compliance Office (see contact details below):
- confirmation whether or not the personal data is being processed by us and, if applicable, access to or examination of the personal data;
- correction of incorrect personal data;
- supplementing incomplete personal data;
- removal or limitation of processing of (certain) personal data;
- transfer of personal data to another controller or processor;
- termination of processing personal data.
Upon receipt of such request, Gimv will investigate to what extent it is possible to comply with the request and whether and to what extent Gimv is legally obliged to do so. Gimv will always enquire in writing about the decision and the actions taken.
If you have any further questions regarding the processing of your personal data, you can contact the Gimv Compliance Office (email@example.com).
Finally, you always have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority of your choice. In Belgium, you can turn to the Belgian Data Protection Authority for assistance (www.dataprotectionauthority.be).
