What data do we collect about you?

Dun & Bradstreet does not have the same data for all people. It depends on the data that you or our partners gave us. Remember, data we collect fills the purposes not only to empower businesses, organisations and authorities, but also to make your life as an individual both easier and more secure. Below, you’ll find examples of data that Dun & Bradstreet could have on you.

Our activities evolve around personal data. The conservation period of this data must be long enough to maintain the best possible quality and thus reduce the risk of errors. The information is stored within the system in accordance with our retention policies. How long we keep it there depends on legal requirements and business needs defined for each set of data. When it is no longer required, it is deleted from our systems.
