Polestar Capital safeguards and respects your privacy and will only process your personal data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. In this Privacy Statement, you can read what personal data we process, for what purposes, what the basis for the processing is and how long the personal data is kept.

  • (Former) customers and (former) investors;
  • People expressing an interest in our services;
  • People associated with a company or organisation with which we have, intend to have, or have had a customer relationship.

Processing of personal data when you contact us

You can contact us in various ways: via the contact form on the website, by phone or by email. When you have contacted us because you are considering or submitting an application for services or have questions about the quotation process or existing services, Polestar Capital will capture some personal data from you. The purpose of this processing may be to answer your questions or to assess whether you or the company, for which you act as contact person, is eligible for our services. This may include the company you represent or of which you are UBO. Other purposes include entering into the agreement with you or the relevant company and maintaining the agreement.

Processing of personal data during a financing process and our services

When you are in a financing process with us and/or purchase a service from us, we process the following (categories of) personal data for various purposes:

  • data needed to conclude or perform an agreement, such as name, contact details, bank account number and VAT number;
  • data needed to assess the request for services, such as a description of business activities, annual accounts, tax returns from previous years and other financial and business information and CVs (with diplomas, etc.) of management;
  • data necessary to verify or contact references of key persons, such as contact persons, directors and UBOs;
  • data needed to identify the company you represent and the UBO and to comply with the obligations arising from the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act (Wet ter voorkoming van witwassen en financieren van terrorisme – Wwft), including conducting a customer due diligence and other relevant laws and regulations;

Lawful bases of processing

We process personal data on several bases. Firstly, for the performance of the contract between the client/investor and Polestar Capital or in preparation thereof. Secondly, we carry out certain processing of personal data to comply with legal obligations, including financial (supervisory) legislation. Thirdly, we share personal data with potential investors based on our legitimate interest. Our interest is that potential investors can form a picture of prospects and their investment requests. We make confidentiality agreements with current and potential investors.

If we find it necessary to process personal data but one of the aforementioned bases does not apply, we will ask for your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

Keeping up to date and retention period

Polestar Capital will process only those personal data that are relevant, keep them up to date and delete them as soon as they are no longer needed. In any case, personal data in connection with your (potential) application for services will be kept for the period Polestar Capital needs to assess the application, after which, in case of rejection, it will be deleted no later than 31 December, 2 years from the date of rejection, unless Polestar Capital has legitimate reasons to extend this period. Personal data in connection with a contract for services will be retained for the period during which Polestar Capital provides the service and the period thereafter during which Polestar Capital is still legally obliged to retain your data, generally 7 years.

Security and access

Polestar Capital considers adequate security of your personal data to be an important responsibility Polestar Capital shall ensure that appropriate technical and organisational measures are in place to secure personal data against unauthorised or otherwise undesirable access and processing.

Third parties

We will only share your personal data with third parties where this is necessary in connection with the provision of a service by that third party that we need to assess or execute your application for funding or participation. Such as notaries and lawyers for drafting and advising on service documentation, our administration service providers and parties we engage to fulfil our obligations under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act (Wwft).  In addition, Polestar Capital uses IT service providers who provide hosting and maintenance of the software and hardware used by Polestar Capital.

Polestar Capital only provides personal data to parties who ensure that they have taken the required measures to adequately protect the data. We enter into a processor agreement with processors, who process your personal data on behalf of Polestar Capital, which, among other things, regulates the confidentiality and security of your personal data by these third parties.

The third parties are mainly located in the Netherlands or within the EEA. In case we do business with a third party outside the EEA, we ensure appropriate safeguards for secure and careful processing of personal data.

Only when Polestar Capital is legally obliged to do so will we disclose personal data to supervisory, investigative and tax authorities. Please note that some of these services may have far-reaching powers, enabling them to enforce such disclosures.
