How can I exercise my privacy rights?

Find out here what rights you can exercise in regard to your personal data, and in which cases.

Do you want to assert one of these rights? Select the desired request and go to ‘Submit request’. You will receive a reply within 30 days of the date of receipt of your request.

Please note: these rights do not apply to personal data in the Business Register. If you want to view your data in the Business Register, you can do so through My eenmanszaak. Currently, this is only possible for sole proprietorships, but in time this option will be available for every registration.

Right of inspection

You have the right to get access from KVK to the personal data that KVK processes about you, by submitting a request for access to personal data. 

Right to rectification

If your personal data is incorrect, you can request us to correct the data.

Right to erasure

In certain cases (in Dutch), you have the right to have your personal data (or part thereof) erased. For example, this applies when the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was obtained, or when the data has been processed unlawfully.

Right to restriction of processing

In very exceptional cases, you have the right to have the processing of your personal data temporarily restricted. This applies in these cases:

  • During the period KVK needs to check whether your report of inaccuracy of your data is correct.
  • If the KVK no longer needs the data (and they must therefore be removed), but you indicate that you yourself still need the data for the establishment, exercise or substantiation of a legal claim.
  • If you have objected to the processing by the KVK and are awaiting a decision on this.
  • If the processing of data is unlawful, but you do not want your data to be deleted altogether (because you want to prevent your data from being processed again, for example, your data is on an opt-out list).

Right to object to processing

When KVK processes your data on the grounds of public interest or legitimate interest, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for information on KVK’s products and services.
