Personal data that is not public:
the citizen service number (BSN), signature, and gender of the persons listed above. The private address of an officer of a legal entity is not public. The date, country and place of birth, and address of UBOs are also not public.
Private addresses that are public:
the addresses of owners (sole traders or sole proprietorships), partners (vof), and members of public partnerships.
