For how long will my data be stored?

KVK only keeps your personal data for the time necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

In doing so, KVK complies with the terms laid down in the Basis Selectiedocument Kamer van Koophandel as established and published in the Government Gazette (Staatscourant) on 23 June 2022. The Basis Selectiedocument is based on the documentation obligation laid down in the Archiefwet (Archives Act) 1995. In general, retention periods range from 1 to 10 years.

KVK only deviates from the term in the Basis Selectiedocument when this is necessary for proper compliance with the privacy act GDPR, or when a specific situation requires it. Business Register records are kept indefinitely. More information on retention periods for government archives can be found here: Government archives (in Dutch).
