Citizen Service Number (BSN)
According to the GDPR, the BSN is not special personal data. However, there must be a legal basis for processing BSN. For Reconi, this is the case in relation to eHerkenning for sole proprietorships or European use (eIDAS), where the BSN is the unique identifying feature. In all other situations, we advise you to shield the BSN when submitting a copy of your ID, in addition to your passport photo and nationality.

Special and/or sensitive personal data we process
Reconi does not record special personal data related to someone's race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or belief, trade union membership, genetic or biometric data for unique identification, health, sexual life or criminal history, except if this absolutely necessary and unavoidable. This is only available in very specific situations, for example if you are applying for eHerkenning for a religious denomination or a political party.

How long we keep personal data
Reconi will not retain your personal data for longer than is strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which your data is collected. We use the following retention period for all (categories) of personal data: 7 years after termination of the agreement. There are exceptions to this for 1) received copy of proof of identity: maximum 30 days, and 2) audiovisual data for identification: maximum 14 days.

Transfer of personal data
Transfer to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) is limited as much as possible. If personal data is processed outside the EEA, Reconi takes the necessary measures and follows the advice of the Personal Data Authority, among others. For the transfer of personal data to the United States, a check is made to see whether the organization participates in the Data Privacy Framework. Reconi closely monitors developments surrounding the adequacy decisions and adjusts its measures accordingly.

Sharing personal data with third parties
Reconi does not sell your data to third parties. We provide personal data to third parties only if necessary for the execution of our agreement with you or to comply with a legal obligation. With companies that process your data on our behalf, we conclude a processing agreement to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your data.
