Privacy Statement
This Privacy Statement applies to the processing of personal data of visitors to the standard or mobile website of Investeringsfonds Groningen (‘IFG’).

This Privacy Statement does not apply to any standard or mobile third-party websites accessible from links on a standard or mobile IFG website.

Reasons for and purpose of data processing
When you visit the site, participate in an online survey or send or receive emails, you leave your data behind. These data shall only be used to process your request or response. The data in question shall not be collected or used in a way that is traceable back to you. Information on visits to the IFG website shall only be used in our provision of services to you and to support technical decisions and statistical processing. In addition, IFG shall also process data where required by law.

Which personal data?
When you use a standard or mobile IFG website and/or receive an online mailing from IFG, we shall process the following personal data, where applicable:

A cookie is a unit of data that a server sends to a browser for storage, so the browser can send the cookie back to the server during a future visit. This way, the server can recognise the browser and remember what the user or browser did in the past. When visiting this site, cookies may be placed on your system. The IFG website itself does not use cookies. However, it does use Google Analytics, which uses cookies to track browsing and searching behaviour on our website. If you do not want Google Analytics to put cookies on your system, you can set your browser to ‘disable cookies’. If you accept the cookies, they may remain on your computer for five years, unless you delete them. Disabling cookies only affects the computer and browser where you make this setting. If you use multiple computers or browsers, you must repeat this action as many times as necessary. Consult your browser’s help function for further support.

What are you rights?
You have the right to view all of your personal data collected by IFG and you may submit a request for this to IFG. You also have the right to ask IFG to correct your data that it has collected if it appears that the data in IFG’s possession are incorrect or incomplete. In addition, you have the right to decline future contacts from IFG that provide information on IFG. If IFG is processing your personal data based on permission that you granted, you have the right to withdraw this permission at any time. For all of these matters, you may contact

If you have any complaints regarding the processing of your personal data by IFG, you have the right to submit your complaint to the Personal Data Authority.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties
IFG shall only disclose your personal data to third parties if necessary to perform the agreement you concluded with IFG or to meet requirements under the law. IFG has concluded processing agreements with parties that process personal data under assignment from IFG, and has bound these processors to a level of personal data protection and confidentiality that is at least equal to that applied by IFG itself.
