- Overall considerations
Beierholm takes the responsibility for your personal data seriously and treats these data as confidential. We do not collect more data than are necessary for our provision of the agreed services to our customers.
- Storage of your personal data
We store your personal data for the duration of your contractual relationship with Beierholm. If you cease being a customer with us, we will erase your personal data after the current year + five years, see the rules in the Danish Bookkeeping Act (Bogføringsloven), the Danish Act on Approved Auditors and Audit Firms (Revisorloven), the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act (Hvidvaskloven) and other relevant legislation.
As a general rule, we do not use consent in connection with the provision of our services in Beierholm. If you have granted your consent, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any given time. You can do this by getting in touch with your regular Beierholm contact.
- Categories of personal data
Under the Danish Anti-Money Laundering Act, Beierholm is obliged to verify that the parties with whom Beierholm has established a customer relationship do not pose a risk of money laundering or financing of terrorism. It is therefore necessary for Beierholm to process data on our customers’ civil registration (CPR) number and photo ID in the form of a driving licence or passport.
- Recipients of data
Beierholm only discloses data to the subprocessors stated in Beierholm’s data processing agreement. In addition, the data are disclosed to public authorities such as the Danish Tax Agency (Skattestyrelsen) and the Danish Business Authority (Erhvervsstyrelsen) if Beierholm is obliged to do so by law or by agreement with the customer.
