In the event that Mourik is acquired by or merges with a third party, Mourik is entitled to provide this third party with your personal information as part of the transferred assets under the merger, acquisition, sale, or change to the board of management. In the unlikely event of an insolvency, moratorium on payment, reorganization or other circumstance that results in the Mourik board of management no longer having control over the company pursuant to a regulation or decision of the court, Mourik will have no control over the way in which your personal information is processed from then on.

6.  Protecting your information

The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect your personal data provided to us. Although we strive to fully protect your data, it is possible that third parties – beyond the influence of Mourik – may gain unauthorized access to your information or intercept this data. We cannot guarantee the security of the personal information you send us and, as such, you should be aware that any transmission of such data is at your own risk. Mourik will inform you of any data breach when required to do so by law or when Mourik deems it necessary to inform you of such.

To embed the protection and security of personal information, Mourik uses the privacy by design principle in its strategic and organizational objectives.

7.  Transmission of personal information to third parties

Mourik does not send your personal information to countries outside the European Union unless this is required for the purposes for which it was collected, in which case we will ensure that your information is being processed in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations.

8.  Data retention period

Your personal information will only be retained for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or as required by law.

Mourik uses the following guidelines to determine how long the information should be kept:

1. Maximum retention period ­– we keep information only for as long as prescribed by law. For example, client and transaction information is stored for a maximum of two years, unless we are required to keep this information for a longer or shorter period.

2. Minimum retention period – we keep information for at least as long as prescribed by law. For example, in compliance with tax law, financial information is kept for at least 7 years.
