The pension fund protects personal data with the aid of appropriate security measures, which provides guarantees against the risk of personal data being lost or subject to unauthorised access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.

The pension fund does not disclose any personal data to a person who is unauthorised or who has nothing to do with its processing.

The pension fund does not disclose personal data to any other party, unless the law or a court of law renders it mandatory for it to do so.


4. Data leaks

Personal data must be secured. A data leak is deemed to have occurred where:

·         its security is breached;

·         personal data has been unlawfully processed or lost in the process;

·         there is a significant likelihood of adverse effects on the protection of the relevant personal data. In such a case it would involve data:

o   pertaining to an individual’s financial or economic situation, such as their salary, pension details, usernames and log-in codes;

o   which could result in identity fraud, such as CSNs, passports, identity cards or driving licences.

The pension fund reports data leaks to the Dutch Data Protection Authority and to anyone whose data has been leaked.


5. Responsibility

The pension fund is a data processor and, as such, is responsible for personal data.

The pension fund processes personal data in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act [Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens] and the General Data Protection Regulation.


6. Receipt of personal data

The pension fund receives the personal data that it requires from various parties, namely:

·         you or your legal representative;

·         your employer;

·         a personal records database or non-residents register;

·         the Employee Insurance Agency (UWV);

·         court bailiffs and other authorised bodies which manage claims against members;

·         the CAK (Central Administration Office – premiums for withholdings under the Care Insurance Act [Zorgverzekeringswet] (ZVW) in the case of pensioners who live in Europe but outside the Netherlands);

·         former pension administrators.


7. To which parties do we grant access to your personal data?

We may disclose your personal data in the following circumstances:

·         the pension fund has outsourced its administrative work to a processing agent, the Blue Sky Group in Amstelveen. Their staff may gain access to your personal data for the purposes of carrying out their work. They will only receive access to your personal data for the above-mentioned purposes;


·         other parties to process your personal data for us. Examples:

o    the company that sends our post;

o    court bailiffs for the purposes of collecting debts;

Such other party may only process your personal data for the above-mentioned purposes and then only in accordance with our instructions.

8. For how long will your personal data be retained?

Your personal data will not be retained for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it has been collected or is processed. We will retain some data for a longer period, because the law renders it mandatory for us to do so. In such a case the underlying premise would be the legally stipulated retention period.

·         In the case of accrued entitlements we will retain your personal data for seven years after the last relevant rightsholder (for example, a partner or orphan) dies.

·         In the event that your relationship with IFF terminates before you retire, for example, in the case of an asset transfer, we will retain your data for minimal seven years in order to be able to assess any dispute pertaining to entitlements.
